Then, I just had to prepare for English and other additional subjects. Though, the board preparations strengthen my NCERT concepts.
Careers360: Tell us about your NEET preparation routine.

Careers360: What was your exam day strategy for all three subjects, namely Physics, Chemistry, and Biology?

Questions related to NEET
Im a student who completed 10 th in CBSE school and waiting for my results. Im aiming to beacome a microbiologist. Now what I have to do to enter a microbiology college. Is NEET important for that?
Neet is only for those who wants to enter into medicine that is Mbbs, Bds. For other courses related to biology you don't need to write neet exam. You need to concentrate on your board exams and you should get a very good mark in biology so that you can get into a very good college. Some colleges have their own selection process but it depends on each college.
