How to prepare for NEET 2020 – What previous toppers say?
Here are some of the crucial tips & tricks by previous years NEET toppers, which one cannot miss during preparations.
1. Make a smart NEET 2020 study timetable
Most of the toppers would advice you to make a systematic NEET 2020 preparation strategy study timetable. Asked about NEET preparation strategy, NEET 2018 AIR -3, Himanshu Sharma shared that, having a smart study plan is a must to focus one’s NEET preparations. According to him, "I had a clear plan in my mind from the very beginning as to how I will study for the exam. I divided my time for different chapters ranging from one to two hours per chapter. I prepared from the very beginning for the boards and NEET simultaneously so that I did not have to face any exam stress and tension."
In order to emerge with flying colours in NEET 2020, students must know the when what and how to study. For that, students need to maintain a comprehensive NEET study timetable and abide by it religiously as a core part of their NEET 2020 preparation.
A quick & smart NEET 2020 study plan requires:
List down all the topics you need to cover and allot a time cap and schedule to each. This will become your basic timetable on how to prepare NEET 2020.
While solving NEET mock tests, note down all the doubts that you come across.
Approach your coaching teachers or mentors as regularly as you can to get your doubts cleared.
Note down the important formulas and points on a separate sheet while studying.
2. Use previous years’ question papers, sample papers, mock tests and question banks
Every previous NEET topper suggests that one of the key NEET 2020 preparation tips is to solve myriad mock tests before appearing for the exam. As shared by Bhavik Bansal AIR-2 of NEET 2019, who obtained 700 out of 720, said that, "For most of time, I took the mock tests and previous years question papers, When I used to revise the chapter-wise subjects, I used to do it in the intense manner that it builds up my concepts."
So simply put, solve as many mock tests and previous years’ NEET papers as you can. Attempt full-length mock tests of NEET 2020 irrespective of your level of preparation. Do not wait until the last minute to complete the syllabus before proceeding to solve the NEET 2020 mock tests and previous year papers. Solving mock tests consistently through your preparations will help you develop a proper time-management strategy, evaluate your NEET preparation levels and familiarize yourself with the NEET 2020 exam pattern.
Besides full-length mocks, take help of sample papers and question banks. After studying every chapter, practice solving chapter-specific questions from the question banks. Practising MCQ type questions from the NEET sample papers which are based on the NEET 2020 paper pattern will help one enhance their understanding of all the chapters.
3. Revision is a must
“I just followed what I was taught by my teachers and did lots of revision. I made sure I would revise at home whatever I was taught in the class,” says Archit Gupta, who achieved the rare distinction of securing AIR 2 in both NEET and AIIMS in 2017.
As suggested by Archit, revision is of utmost importance in one’s NEET 2020 preparations. It is especially pertinent in the preparation of Biology. Revise on a regular basis, especially the subjects you are weak in. Studying the subjects merely once isn’t enough as constant revision will be the key to success in NEET 2020.
4. Keep yourself calm through stress-relieving activities
"I have a passion for swimming and I used to do it rarely during my preparations. However, to get rid of stress, I used to talk to my parents, friends and other family members." says NEET 2019 topper AIR-10, Raghav Dubey.
It is but natural for aspirants to start panicking with only a few months remaining for the exam. However, anxiety can severely undermine all the confidence you may have built in your preparation phase. Studying for 9 to 10 hrs is an important preparation tip for NEET, but it is equally important to keep yourself relaxed and rejuvenated. Find out what you enjoy doing as a hobby or whatever helps you de-stress, and indulge in the same from time to time over the course of your NEET preparations.
5. Engage in quality study
"I used to self-study for eight hours after my coaching and at the same time I ensured that I got my seven hours of sleep. Coaching used to take place five days a week and there I used to spend four to five hours." NEET 2019 AI-1 Nalin Khandelwal said, when asked about NEET 2020 preparations with quality.
An important NEET 2020 preparation tip is to choose quality over quantity every time. There is no point in studying for 12 hours if you have only been able to maintain full concentration for 8 hours in that.
Conceptual clarity is very important when preparing for Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) as they demand the application of concepts over rote learning and preparing for the same comprehensively requires full focus. Allocate your time properly and in a balanced manner to each subject of NEET 2020 which are Physics, Chemistry and Biology in such a manner that the quality of your studying is not affected. Focus on making your strong areas stronger, while slowly improving in your weaker areas as well.
For Kalpana Kumari, AIR 1 of NEET 2018, it was important to give time to each section. She said, “I won’t say tough but Physics was lengthy so I tried to give more time to this section especially to chapters like Rotation. In Chemistry, I focused more on the Organic section, on the other hand, I never faced a difficulty in Biology but you need to give equal time to this section as well since it carries 360 marks."
