Preparation tips for NEET 2022

Read NCERT textbooks thoroughly 

The NCERT books hold lots of value, especially when it comes to exams since these books have simple explanations and excellent practice questions! This is extremely helpful for NEET candidates as the practice is key for students appearing for such entrance exams. Similarly, these textbooks are great for reviewing content in case of doubts as NCERT books specialize in laying out fundamental concepts for all chapters. 

Revision 

Apart from this, candidates need to keep revising the concepts and topics they have learned. Generally, students often tend to forget what they have done previously and have to re-study the topics. Moreover, students may also face confusion or difficulties after solving questions on a topic that they haven’t revised in a long time.

 To put it in simple words, revising is a technique to convert the short-term learned knowledge into a long-term memory which helps them retain it whenever necessary. Overall, it’s better if NEET candidates acquire a habit of regular revision after they have completed learning a chapter. 

Enlist the important formulas 

One of the most vital aspects of science subjects is its formulas, theorems, and standard methods of calculations. However, there are plenty of them which is why it becomes difficult for students to remember all of them and also learn which one to use when. 

Therefore it is suggested that students must enlist all the important formulas and theorems separately in a sheet. 

Solve sample NEET papers 

Another crucial part is making sure NEET aspirants have solved a good number of sample and past papers available on websites. By doing this, students get the idea of the paper pattern and style of the question paper hence can easily solve the entrance exam. 

The more students attempt to solve questions, the less likely they are to make silly mistakes or calculations errors which can cause a huge blunder during the exam. Science subjects require calculation accuracy and thus, trying to solve sample papers aids to also improve their performance in the exam. 

Important Dates 

NEET aspirants must keep checking the dates for the application, admit card, and exams. Since the covid 19 pandemic hasn’t ended yet so it may be postponed. As of now, one can assume these dates to be tentative and should not be surprised by any changes in them.

Further, the dates for the upcoming exams have yet to be announced so there’s wild speculation on the initial dates themselves let alone any more changes in the future. It is suggested that students only confirm and attain the dates for exams through an official source and no one else. 

Conclusion
