Practical Time-Table: It is important to have a time-table or a definite study schedule so that the preparation is carried out it in systematic order.

When it comes to preparing for the biggest undergraduate medical entrance, expert’s opinion can a pivotal role in enhancing the strategy which can help a NEET aspirant ace the exam. Following are some of the expert tips which can be very helpful in strategising a study schedule for NEET 2020.
Anand Nagarajan, Academic Head of T.I.M.E
A lot of candidates prepare for NEET along with school studies of Class 11 and 12 which may seem taxing. Anand Nagarajan sees this as an opportunity to strengthen the basics as the curriculum of Class 11 and Class 12 NCERT is the syllabus of NEET 2020. He notes “while doing NEET preparations along with Class 12 board exams will help them streamline the preparation for both exams. As it is commonly known that NEET question paper is based on Class 12 syllabus, therefore, students are required to divide the whole syllabus of NEET and cover every topic for exam preparations.”
For Physics he suggests “ it is mandatory to learn the formulas on tips. For their easiness, aspirants can make a chapter-wise formula chart and practice as many questions as possible to get the important formulas.”
For Chemistry he advises “Read the concepts of Physical Chemistry from NCERT, and then test the understanding by practising questions from MCQs and question banks. For Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, make formula charts as was done for Physics and memorize the formulas and name reactions on a daily basis.”
To score well in Biology in NEET 2020, Anand Nagarajan notes “All chapters of Biology are equally important. Note down and memorize the common and scientific names of the organisms while reading. Developing a strong conceptual understanding will help students score well in Biology in NEET 2019”
Dr. Anshuman Aggarwal, Resonance
Explaining a full proof strategy to reap the benefits, Dr. Anshuman Aggarwal suggests “Students appearing for 12th board should complete their class 11th syllabus revision by mid-December. Then, they should focus on 12th syllabus, by keeping preparations of NEET/AIIMS in mind and try to complete it by the end of March. This way, they can contribute an equal proportion of time to revise class 11th syllabus to look up again in April.”
Emphasizing on exhaustive revision, Dr. Aggarwal advises “the test papers, online mock tests and previous years’ sample papers makes significant contributions in the success of an individual. However, it becomes essential for aspirants to opt for the mock test or sample paper, once they completed their NEET syllabus.”

But then MHRD and NTA did inform that conducting NEET abroad is not possible. And also parents have sent a request to the MHRD to postpone both NEET and JEE Mains keeping in mind the ongong hike in the Positive Corona Cases.
