How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Check out syllabus and exam pattern

Being familiar with the syllabus will help you focus your energies only on those topics from which questions will be asked in NEET 2020, and not waste time and energy on irrelevant stuff. Remember you have very little time, and so need to make the most of it. Meanwhile, aligning one’s preparation to prescribed exam pattern would eliminate exam-day surprises. Take, for example, NEET UG will be conducted in offline mode and include multiple-choice questions. Now, if a candidate misses this bit of information and instead prepares for subjective questions or online-mode, it can be a recipe for disaster.

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Prepare and follow a study plan

Once you know the syllabus and exam pattern, chalk up a study plan that is actionable. When making time allotments, you may even segregate the topics into groups, say, difficult, moderate, easy. This way you will be able to tackle the difficult topics more effectively. Also, make sure that you take regular stock of your progress. If you feel that a little tweak here and there might, get it done.

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Read the right way

One thing about the NEET exam is that is concept-based, meaning it will include many questions that will test your understanding of the fundamentals of the subjects. So, superficial reading won’t cut it. To be successful you will then have to decipher each topic, get to the bottom of it - and all the while not wasting an enormous amount of time. Please note that if you get stuck with a topic, move on to other topics. Or you will have to compensate someplace else, which could be costly.

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Take notes and use flashcards

There are umpteen benefits of taking notes if you do it correctly that is. For example, notes can act as summary points. So every time you need to revise, all you need to do is run through the notes; this is unless you need to read the complete block of texts for additional practice. Prepare your notes while you are reading a topic. Also, as you go along you can keep on fine-tuning the notes so that they can act as standalone preparation material. Likewise, flashcards are very useful in retaining concepts, even formulas.

It is recommended that you maintain a separate sheet for jotting down all the formulas and shortcuts as well.

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Do extensive revision

One of the important pillars of your success would be doing timely revision. The frequency and time allotted for revision, of course, would depend on the topic and the associated difficulty level. For example, if there are complicated formulas and concepts involved, it will need more exhaustive revision than topics with simple concepts. But once you become comfortable with these topics and concepts, you may reduce the frequency.

Another thing is if you are reading a completely new topic that you haven’t touched before, it will not only take a lot of time the first time, but you have to keep revisiting it again and again. So, if you are running out of time and there are still quite a few topics left untouched, you need to make a decision as to how wise it is to study all these new topics; or are you better served to leave some topics out and to concentrate on the rest.

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Take Mock tests

Despite studying long hours, the candidate may still get caught flat-footed in the exam. It happens because solving a problem at home and doing the same thing in the exam hall with the clock ticking away isn’t the same thing. But this gap can be bridged by taking mock tests, which are simulations of the real thing. Mock tests present an exam-like environment, suited for developing time management skills and learning how to cope under pressure. Along with mock test, you may also solve previous years NEET question and sample papers to get an idea about the type of questions asked and topic-wise distribution of questions.

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Stay positive

When there is so little time and so much to be done, doubts can easily creep in and can sabotage the preparation. So, stay on guard and never let negativity creep in. But how do one do that? Well, for a start keep away from negative people. Then if you feel like you're starting to feel low, do some recreational activity; just ensure that you get completely detached from your studies when you are having a downtime!

How to prepare for NEET 2020 in 4 months - Eat and drink healthy

Finally, remember that just because there is an exam round the corner, you don’t have to forgo your timely dinner, lunch or even sleep. It is because if you don’t eat healthily and sleep your full quota, you might become susceptible to anxiety and nervousness. The solution is to live in the present and not to think too far ahead. After all it is the present that we are in control of!!

my fathers surname in 10th & 12th marksheet is Sudhir sharma but in my Aadhar it is Sudhir Kumar will this create problem during admission in neet.?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 23rd Feb, 2020

Dear aspirant

No this will not create any problem as aadhar is still optional in most of the cases and where it is mandatory it is not that hard checked for spelling and surnames. If you have right name in both of your marksheet then you are good to go. Just make sure to not repeat this mistake in your mbbs marksheet and continue the consistency within marksheets.

Hope this helps. Thanks.
