Topper tips on how to balance NEET preparation with board exams
Juggling between NEET and Class 12 boards was never a tough task for NEET 2019 AIR 10, Raghav Dubey who said, “I have been preparing for NEET exam from last two years. The three major subjects for Class 12 and NEET are Physics, Chemistry and Biology, which were completed within a year. Then, I just had to focus on English and other additional subjects. The board preparations really strengthen my NCERT concepts for NEET."
Sharing his preparation strategy for balancing board exams and NEET preparation, Krishna Ashish Agrawal, NEET 2018 AIR 7, shared, “Physics was a little tricky for me so I tried to pay more attention to this section. I had a prepared schedule for each section and I tried to closely follow until the last days. I studied for 6-7 hours each day and believed in my teachers whatever knowledge they imparted me I followed it. Although, I had to halt the NEET preparation while taking the board exams for a month. After Class 12 boards, I studied for NEET with more vigour and hard work”.
How to Balance NEET 2021 Preparations and Board Exam – Expert Opinion
"The future medicos currently studying in class 12 have to deal with conflicts of priorities at this juncture. The students have to focus on the board exam as well as continue to maintain steam for NEET. Based on the board exam schedule published, for the majority of the boards, a student can expect a gap ranging from 3 to 5 days between exam for all core subjects. During the intervening period between exams for the core subjects, the first 2 days need to be spent on strengthening all the weak areas. During the remaining period, an end to end complete revision of all the topics need to be done. The study sessions should include a good mix of theory, problem-solving and revising all the questions which have appeared in the last 5 years board paper. The problem-solving sessions will help the student to sustain the NEET preparation, especially in Physics and Chemistry", says academic expert, Anand Nagarajan, academic head of school division, T.I.M.E, Chennai.

I am a class 10th student and i wanna go into the medical stream i am really interested in biology nd wanna be a surgeon some day. But i have a doubt, bout my study options.. kota or private or dummies or should i take 11tg nd 12th with a normal neet coaching. Nd try my best for neet
It's a personal choice that whether you should opt for 11th and 12th in regular school along with coaching or you should go for studies in Kota . Both has its own merit.
If you study in regular school then you will get to enjoy your school life like you will actually do all the practicals in lab, also, there are a number of co-curricular activities that you will be doing in those two years in school but yes it can become hectic to manage both board exam and Neet preparation for those students who are not good at managing time and if you are that kind of person then you should better go to Kota and no opt for regular School and the benefit here which will get is studies totally devoted towards your neet, no tention of school homework, assignments and projects. So, take your time and decide :)
