Questions related to NEET
I want to prepare for CLAT along with neet. what can I do to prepare for CLAT with limited time available
Here is the overview of plan on how you can manage time for clat preparation section wise:
- General Knowledge and current affairs are subjects which the candidate must do self-study as there is nothing conceptual that requires a guide or a teacher. So give it atleast half an hour per day.
- Logical Reasoning can seem to be tricky, but if you put your mind to it you can decipher it without much effort. It is all about using some common sense and logic, but you will need lots of practice to master the section. The logical section would include questions on blood relations, analogies, syllogism, and logical sequences. So make sure you have good materials to prepare for it and try to complete or practice a topic per day rather than going for time.
- To prepare for questions in this section, one should pick up quantitative aptitude questions for practice. Questions in this section will be from a variety of topics like Number systems, Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Geometry, Trigonometry, Mensuration, Statistics, and Probability. Give minimum an hour for mathematics.
- The legal aptitude section is an important section in CLAT 2021. The section would consist of two parts: Legal Reasoning and Legal Knowledge. To answer questions from the Legal Reasoning section, one must be able to carefully read and understand what it is asking before proceeding to answer it. For the Legal Knowledge section, the candidate must be aware of the Legal Maxims to accurately use relevant legal terminologies. So you can give flexible time to it but make sure you're constantly practice questions.
- For English make sure your vocabulary is strong and try the previous year questions sets per week. Daily read newspapers and add new words with their meaning, synonyms , antonyms to your dictionary.
Hope it helps!!

I m getting 660 marks in NEET 2021. Is GSVM MC Kanpur appropriate clg for me or i should choose more better clg for these marks? In Delhi, UP, Rajasthan and Gujarat states only. Provide me the list rank wise list of clgs too. please. m so condused
Before proceeding towards the college research I recommend you to use our rank and college predictor to get a better knowledge of the colleges available to you at your predicted rank
NEET Rank Predictor
NEET College Predictor
Now as far as your marks are concerned ,Your Predicted Rank is: 2007 - 3657
Now assuming you don't have domicile status for Delhi , Your chances of getting a seat in Delhi via AIQ are absolutely zero
This leaves you with government colleges in Rajasthan , UP and Gujarat
Among these 3 I have set the priorities for you according to NIRF rankings
Banaras Hindu University
Considering your predicted AIR and marks , the chances of you getting this are very grim
2)King George`s Medical University, Lucknow
Chances of getting this college with state quota are there , however for that also your AIR must lie within 1400-1700 , so nothing absolute prior to results can be said
3) Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow
You can surely fetch a seat in this both with state qouta and AI qouta
4) Coming to colleges in Rajasthan
- SMS Medical College, Jaipur -- Here you can fetch a seat via the state qouta
- Sardar Patel Medical College, Bikaner -- Here also chances of you getting a seat are high
Thanks and regards
