NEET Exam Preparation in 3 Months: How to score high in NEET UG 2020/21


National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) is a national level medical entrance exam. It is usually conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) for MBBS/BDS admission in all MCI/DCI approved colleges in India. More than 13 lakhs candidates are expected to apply for NEET 2020 and 2021, in which 180 questions will be asked from physics, chemistry, biology, and botany. Since NTA has taken over this examination, many things would be seen changed in NEET 2020 and 2021, such as mode of exam, its frequency. However, for those who are in class 11 or 12 should not panic or get anxious instead, their focus should be on exam preparation at the moment.

NEET Preparation in 3 Months

Since, only 3 months are left for the preparation of the NEET examination and over that you need to study for the std 12th board examination. It would be difficult to manage both of these simultaneously. As you all can see syllabus is vast and which is next to impossible to cover all of them simultaneously preparing with the syllabus of std 12th.

You should just target the most important topics which would be beneficial for you and the topics that you can master in just 3 months.

Some tips that would help you get going

Tip 1: Get Previous Year Question Papers:

Candidates must get previous 10 years question papers. Select few topics, then try and finish 2 chapters from bio, 1 from physics, 1 from chemistry. Choose the topics for a day and make sure to attain that particular day’s target. To keep things under control, you should also self-assign a mock test in 3 days from the previous year.

Tip 2: Study Material:

Do not try to attempt/solve any other study materials than are necessary. Attempting or solving that is not necessary would do nothing better than consuming or wasting time. The main goal should be saving time and covering all the important topics.

Tip 3: Be True to Yourself:

While taking self-mock test be absolutely true to yourself. No mobile phones or any device should be used for help. You have to totally do it by yourself, you should not take anyone’s help. Conduct the test just to see where you stand, to know about your strengths and weaknesses. Start with any topic which you find the easiest. It will help you in boosting your confidence.

Since, very less time is left, you should be sincere and work on your schedule. You should not panic, you should remain calm and plan out your schedule very which would help you covering the important topics.

Biology carries most no. of marks so start preparing Biology first. While preparing make relevant notes or get some notes online so that it would help you at the last moment to go through every important topic in a very less time.

NCERTs are a must. So you should have the following NCERT books:

  1. Physics for class 11
  2. Physics for class 12
  3. Chemistry for class 11
  4. Chemistry for class 12
  5. Biology for class 11
  6. Biology for class 12

You should learn how to divide your time for a day. So here is the plan how you should create your timetable on a daily basis:

  • Wake up early in the morning.
  • Study for 2 hours.
  • Take a break for an hour.
  • Again study for 2 hours.
  • Take a break and have breakfast by 10-11 in the morning.
  • Then, study for another 3 hours.
  • Take an hour break for lunch.
  • Rest for an hour.
  • Start studying for the next 2 hours.
  • Take a break again of 30 minutes just to refresh your mind.
  • Again study for 2 hours and then leave it for the day.
  • Have dinner and go to sleep early.

Ensure that you are getting 6-8 hours of sleep everyday and studying at least 11 hours in a day. During these breaks, do not watch or use any device which can distract you, instead just take a walk or do something which could refresh your mind.
