To help aspirants, the top rankers of NEET 2020 share their insights on preparations, the importance of NCERT books, mock tests, revision and ways to optimise performance to get high marks.
Read the preparation tips below on ‘How to crack NEET 2021’ by this year's topper AIR 1 Soyeb Aftab and AIR 2 Akanksha Singh, who made history by securing 720/720 marks in NEET 2020. Along with NEET 2020 AIR 3, Tummala Snikitha.
Soyeb Aftab AIR 1 NEET 2020
The topper from Odissa stunned everyone when he scored full marks in India's single largest medical entrance exam. Soyeb outsmarted over 15 lakh candidates to secure AIR 1 in NEET 2020. He believes that her consistent hard work helped him to achieve success. "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." he said.
NCERT Books are the key to a strong foundation: Soyeb also emphasised on strengthening basic concepts by thoroughly studying from the NCERT core books. He continuously studied for seven to eight hours from NCERT books. He believed that following a regular schedule and intensely studying from the NCERT books played a major role in his success in the medical entrance exams.
Advice to aspirants: Asking him about one advice which he wants to give to the future NEET 2021 aspirants, he said " "My suggestion to the future aspirants is to first study from the NCERT books and complete the syllabus for all the subjects. After that for Physics just study from one good book but solve a lot of multiple-choice questions. At no point of time, one should feel dejected or demotivated if they have not scored well. Take failure as a stepping stone towards success."
AIR 2 Akanshsha Singh NEET 2020
UP's Akanksha Singh too scored full marks in NEET 2020, however, due to the age factors she was given AIR 2. Akanksha always wanted to become a doctor at the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Since, there was no big coaching institute in her town- Kushinagar, she used to travel for four hours to study at an institute in Gorakhpur. After completing Class 10, she shifted to Delhi to prepare for NEET.
Regular studies: According to Akanksha, the only strategy to crack NEET, is to stay calm and study regularly followed by small breaks. While preparing for NEET, she devoted 10 to 12 hours daily to self-study, followed by her institute’s study material. Her study schedule included understanding the concepts, solving the problem and analysing the mistakes.
Keeping yourself motivated: According to this NEET 2020 topper, keeping yourself motivated while preparing for a tough exam like this is extremely vital. Also, unlike many students who wanted the exam to postponed, Akanksha believes the lockdown period gave her extra time to revise her notes, or else balancing the board exam along with entrance test preparation was a task.
Tummala Snikitha AIR 3 NEET 2020
This young girl Tummla, who secured the third rank in NEET 2020, gives complete credit to his parents and teachers, who ironed whatever obstacle she faced. She shares how his focused strategy made her crack medical entrance examinations and come out in flying colours.
Don't lose focus: Tummla believes that the only strategy to crack a tough exam like this is to not lose focus from her goal. While preparing for NEET, she didn't derive herself from her purpose and kept focusing on the preparations. She also shares that it is important to remind yourself about the goal, which you wish to achieve and work hard towards it.
Never get demotivated by failures: Tummla also shared that it is important to give your 100 per cent while preparing for the competitive examinations. According to her, one should try to analyse the obstacle between you and your success and work hard to eradicate it permanently.
