How to prepare for the NEET 2025 exam in 3 months

NEET 2025 subject-wise preparation in 5 Months


Make a note of important points and formulae of every chapter in a separate book. Solve as many NEET questions from mock papers and keep the revision book handy. Some of the important topics are Dimensional Analysis, Current Electricity and Heat Transfer, Kinetic Theory of Gases, Thermodynamics and Rotational Dynamics, Geometrical Optics, Waves, and Sound, and Electromagnetic Induction.


For Chemistry, the NCERT textbook is recommended, as it is well-framed for a detailed understanding of all the topics. Aim to attempt all questions in the textbook and then move on to reference books for additional preparation for NEET 2025. Physical Chemistry is about clearing concepts and implementing these concepts and procedures by solving maximum MCQs. Inorganic chemistry is more about facts and little about concepts.

This section involves a lot of learning the concepts from their end. Organic chemistry is very demanding and candidates must clear their concepts. Important topics in NEET 2025 Chemistry are Thermodynamics, Equilibrium, Hydrocarbons, Carbonyl Compounds, Chemical bonding, Mole concepts, Electrochemistry, and Coordination Compounds.


NCERT textbooks are again pertinent for the Biology section to crack the NEET exam. This is considered the most important subject for candidates aspiring to take admission to MBBS and BDS courses. Further, Biology is given 50% weightage in the NEET question paper 2025 as compared to Chemistry and Physics. Hence, you need to be very clear with different questions to attempt questions in the exam. And this can be possible with a regular revision of the subject with practice tests.

Use mnemonics to memorise things in Biology. Important topics in NEET 2025 Biology can be Diversity in the Living World, Structural Organization in Animals and Plants, Cell Structure and Functions, Plant Physiology, Human Physiology, Reproduction, Genetics and Evolution, Biology, and Human Welfare, Biotechnology and its Applications, Ecology, and Environment.

Animalia and Plantae's topic needs to be prepared more carefully NEET exam. The main emphasis must be on the characters of Phylum in Non-Chordates and the classes of Chordates. All examples given in the NCERT along with the common name (wherever given) should also be memorized.

  • Choose quality NEET study material 2025 and practice as many MCQs as possible from a reputed institute that has a track record on content quality & output.
  • Work thoroughly on weaker areas
  • Make notes
  • Have a positive mindset

Careers360: How important are test series, mock tests, and previous year question papers? When should an aspirant start taking them?

Aakash Chaudhry: One of the best tools to prepare for NEET 2025 is to join a mock test series. Taking NEET mock tests can help to strengthen the student’s preparation method and build up a higher confidence level. Students will be able to analyse their NEET scores and reduce errors as well. During NEET preparation 2025, mock tests may help students evaluate the time spent on each section. Students should start taking the mock tests months before the date of the NEET 2025 exam so that they will have ample time to work on the different kinds of mistakes which students are committing repeatedly while taking the mock tests.

Is 5 months enough for NEET preparation?

Careers360: What should be the last minute and last day NEET 2025 preparation strategies?

Aakash Chaudhry: The last phase of NEET 2025 preparation is often considered a crucial juncture. With barely a day or two to go, it is normal to get a little nervous, however, one must ensure that they make the most of their time. It is advised to flip through your notes and fix doubts instantly. This is not the time to focus on new things. Most importantly, have a positive mindset.

Careers360: What should the students do to tackle the pre-exam stress?

Aakash Chaudhry: Exam pressure and stress are said to go hand in hand. The thought of not doing well can interfere with our body and mind and hinder our productivity. The following are the activities recommended for overcoming NEET 2025 pre-exam stress:

  • One of the ways to tackle stress is to look at it from a different perspective. Use it as a positive tool that drives you to work hard and aim to get a rank in the exam.

  • Exercising and doing yoga every day is said to calm your mind and help you think better.

  • Always remind yourself of why you are studying so much, what is your aim and why you are working so hard. This will help you to move forward in your struggle. Reminding yourself of the results at the end of it may amplify you and reduce your pressure.

  • Believe in yourself. If you have given your 100% at the time of preparation of NEET 2024 then there is no need to worry about the result.

Careers360: What are the common mistakes made by the students on exam day which can be eradicated?

Aakash Chaudhry: Students strive hard to score well in NEET to get admission to the college of their choice, but they still end up making a few mistakes. The following are the common mistakes made by students during the NEET exam 2025:

  • Misreading or misinterpreting the question
  • Making a careless mistake, such as reversing the number or marking the wrong answer
  • Not keeping track of time

Careers360: Any NEET 2025 preparation tips that students should keep in mind to deal with the negative marking system?

Aakash Chaudhry: Students preparing for the NEET exam should not overlook negative markings, as they can make a difference between a good and average rank. For students appearing in NEET 2025, it is recommended not to be overconfident. Skip doubtful questions as it will help in decreasing negative marking. One must ensure to read all the questions carefully and avoid answering questions at the last moment.

Careers360: What should be the exam-taking strategy? How should candidates manage their exam time between the different sections of the paper?

Aakash Chaudhry: It is very important to stay calm and composed during the NEET 2025 exam. First, read the questions carefully and emphasise on the highlighted words of question statements. Start with the subject you like the most or is your strength. NEET Biology subject is recommended to be attempted first. Don’t spend too much time on the individual NEET question papers 2025. Keep moving forward and attempt the questions that you know in the first half of the exam time. Accordingly, keep track of time and how many questions are left unattempted. Every section of the NEET question paper should be dedicated to the required time. Ideal time distribution can be:

Physics: 60 Mins for 45 questions, Chemistry: 50 Mins for 45 questions, Biology: 60 Mins for 90 questions, and the remaining 10 minutes should be used wherever additional time is required.

Careers360: Any other message you would like to share with NEET 2025 aspirants?

Aakash Chaudhry: Adopt a learning style that suits the students - visual, auditory, or tactile. Visual devices include drawings, pictures, charts, maps, graphs, etc to supplement your preparation for the NEET exam. Use bright markers and symbols to point out important notes of NEET 2025 which will help aspirants during revision. Students are known to retain the knowledge gained better when they can associate an image or demonstration referring to it.

After completion of any NEET exam topic, objective questions related to it should be solved regularly to be aware of the retention of the topic. All those questions which could not be solved should be marked and searched in the study materials. One should prepare a summary list of important facts/formulae of every chapter and should keep on revising the list regularly.
