Latest :  Crack NEET 2020 with NEET Knockout Program( AI-Based Coaching), If you Do Not Quality- Get 100% MONEY BACK. Know More

Here we present the tried & tested strategies and success mantras of last year's toppers, who are now pursing MBBS programme from top medical colleges in India.

Focus on strength:

Going by your own evaluation, you must focus on your strong areas and build on the same. As most of the questions in NEET are based on simple concepts of NCERT, learning new topics and starting a new book is not advisable at this point of time. Instead you should put all efforts towards the areas which you have strong hold on and solve questions on the same. Nikhil Bajiya, AIR 3 of NEET 2016 advised that you should not touch new topics just before a few days of NEET . "As NEET  is around the corner, now you must leave new topics that are uncomfortable to you", he said adding, "your complete focus should be on revision and strengthening your stronger sections.''

Take full length mock tests:

In last few days of your preparation, you must take mock test to familiarize yourself with actual test environment. When it comes to clearing NEET  time is the most crucial factor where candidates have to solve 180 questions in three hours. Attempting these many questions in the given time is not an easy task. Thus, students need to improve their time management skill, therefore, solving full length mock test helps in this. AIR 8 of NEET 2016, Dhritiman Chatterjee, say, ''Proper time management is crucial to get a good score in NEET. Mock test gives a fair idea about the pattern and also helps in managing time accurately.''

 

Consolidate your preparation:

After taking mock tests and recognizing your strengths and weaknesses, you would get a broad idea about how much time you must invest per section or subject. Consolidate your study plan based on these factors and stick to it. Ensure that you give equal weightage to all subjects. Het Shah, who secured AIR 1 in NEET 2016 suggests that preparation strategy during the last days should revolve around improving on weak areas. ''I always tried to convert my weak areas into my strengths by devoting extra time on topics and concepts I found difficult to understand,'' says Het.

 

He also adds,''Organize your day in such a way that your mind is free from distractions during the study hours so that you put in your 100% efforts.''

 

Don’t compromise on accuracy:

As per the exam pattern of NEET, for every incorrect answer 1 mark would be deducted. Hence, accuracy is one of the most important factors of success in NEET. While you solve last year sample papers or test series, do not commit any mistake. ''It is important to analyze your mistakes and put in extra efforts to understand the reason behind them. This way of studying gives command over topics and boost confidence,'' says Arushi, AIR 5 and AIR 2 in NEET and AIIMS MBBS 2016, respectively.

 

Revision is the key to success:

During the last few weeks of your preparation, go back your basics studies and strengthen the base concept of each subject. The nature of NEET questions demand clarity on concepts. Thus, it becomes very important to brush up your skills and revise each and every topic you have studied during the two years of your preparations. Mridul Sharma, AIR 5 of AIIMS MBBS 2016 says, ''I used to revise every subject taught to me in school and coaching centre. I strictly followed revision time table and studied accordingly’’. He further adds, ''Revision not only helps you in checking your knowledge base, speed and accuracy but also boost self-confidence.''

 

Do not join any crash course now:

It is not advisable to join a crash course at this time when only few weeks are left for the exam. This may result in unnecessary confusion and pressure of studies on students. This time is crucial and should be utilized in strengthening weak topics with dedicated self-studies. Giving importance to rigorous self-studies, Vipul, topper of AIPMT 2015, advises to aspirants, “It is important to develop a habit of self-study and hard-work because it in the end, it’s only study hours and dedication which brings success.’’

 

Be focused and relax:

Keep your stress levels low. It is good to worry about the exam but don’t let the stress and anxiety take over you. Exercise, indulge yourself in recreational activities and have nutritious food. This does not only help in controlling the stress level but can also keep your emotions stable. ''I used to take evening walks to refresh my mind. This helped in breaking monotony of studies and reduced exam pressure. These recreational activities have helped me in maintaining focus and concentration'' says Sahil Bansal, AIR 4 in AIPMT 2015.

 

Het Shah, who secured 685 marks in NEET 2016 also suggests that, ''Believe in yourself and never get demotivated by failure. Rather, try to analyze the reason and obstacle between you and your success and give 100 % efforts to remove the same. Also remember, cracking competitive exams just don’t define your life.''
