Having applied for NEET exam, the first step would be to start preparing for the test. Since the competition is high and seats less, qualifying with a very good NEET score will require some amount of good preparation. While there are no hard fast rules to crack NEET, some basic guidelines have to be followed to qualify in NEET 2020 with a high score. some important rules to know are:

Understand the NEET Syllabus - This will allow candidates to know which chapters they have to study in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This will also allow them to have an idea of the depth of the topics and syllabus to be covered

Know the NEET Exam Pattern - Well, knowing how many questions to answer, time limit within which to answer the questions, marks awarded, negative marking if any - these are some tips that will ensure that candidates are well conversant with the exam and will know exactly how things will be in the actual exam.

A timetable just for NEET - Having a daily schedule for NEET with an exclusive timetable that allows candidates to keep track of the levels of their preparation will do wonders for preparation purposes. This timetable should allow for week wise and month wise strategy for preparation. Adhering to this is an important factor for success in NEET.

List of books to refer for NEET - No doubt that NCERT strengthens the base and concepts of students, it is also important to have other books that help in cracking NEET.

Best books for NEET Biology

  • Objective Biology (volumes 1 & 2) by GR Bathla 
  • Biology Classes 11 and 12 (Volume 1 & 2) by Pradeep Publications
  • Objective Biology (Volume 1, 2, and 3 along with Practice Papers) by Dinesh Publications
  • A Class Book for Botany by A C Dutta
  • Objective Biology (volumes 1 and 2) by Trueman Publications

Best Books for NEET Chemistry

Mock Tests and Sample Papers of NEET - Studying alone will not help. Practice helps perfect it. So the past NEET question papers, mock tests and sample papers are good tools for this. Candidates can understand how best to strategize, improve their speed and manage their time on the NEET exam day.

Stress Free NEET Preparation - While it is a fact that the immense competition builds on the stress on any NEET aspirant, it is also true that a correct plan will reduce some of  the stress. Candidates must keep to the timetable but also give time to their minds to relax. No one can study all day long and this is something that needs to e understood well. So some time to relax with hobbies, activities like singing, listening to music, playing a game or two, spending time with friends etc is equally important.

As per NTA, NEET 2020 is a pen and paper based exam held in three hours where candidates have to mark their answers in an OMR sheet. NEET question paper will contain questions from Biology (Botany+Zoology), Physics and Chemistry of 10+2 standard. The detailed exam pattern of NEET 2020 is as follows.

Every exam has its share of happy students who have done well and students who may not have performed as per their expectations. What can be always learnt from all is how to adapt in case of adverse situations, how best to make out of a bad situation, how to overcome all odds etc. Student reactions for NEET 2020 will be provided on May 3 from the exam centres while the exam is held and after it concludes. However past year student reactions can give a glimpse into those last minute thoughts before the commencement of the exam and the mixed feelings once the exam is done.

NEET 2019 - post exam student reactions 

Most students agreed that a major chunk of the questions asked were NCERT based. The paper was found relatively easy as compared to NEET 2018 with Physics and Biology being found easier compared to Chemistry. The scoring could be higher on account of the easy paper with NEET cutoffs expected to go higher than the previous year.

Some of the pre NEET reactions in 2019 are

Keshab who was writing NEET for the second time had undergone coaching from Allen Kota. His strategy was to aim and answer all question he knew to score a good rank. He felt he would do good in Physics which was his forte while depending on his intense preparation for Biology and Chemistry to pay off.

Shivam who was from Panipat was attempting NEET exam for the first time and was relying on his self study not having releied on any coaching. His strong point being Biology, he looked forward to do well in the exam.

Saaksh from Bahadurgarh, Haryana wished to pusue MBBS from AFMC. Biology being her strong point, she wished that this second NEET attempt of hers would be successful.

The analysis of any exam can be only given after the exam concludes. However, previous year exam analysis always helps understand what the trends may be like. NEET analysis for 2019 is given here to enable students to gain an insight from the experiences of those who have written the exam last year. The expert opinion has also been added as this adds to the weightage of what to expect, how best to prepare and tackle it in NEET 2020. The exam analysis for NEET 2020 will be updated here on May 3 after the conclusion of the exam.

NEET Analysis by Students who appeared in 2019

Mariam Khan from Aligarh, found that most of the questions were from NCERT. Having done her coaching from her home town, she felt that the paper was relatively easy and could have be tackled with strategic preparation. She found no glitches in the NEET exam that day.

Mayank for whom this was the second attempt, found Physics and Chemistry to be easy as compared to Biology. He felt that about 40% of the questions were from the NCERT syllabus and expected to score anywhere between 450-550 marks. His ambition is to pursue medicine from Maulana Azad Medical College.

For Sumita, this attempt was relatively easier compared to the 2018 one with Physics being more easy as compared to the other subjects. Again she felt that questions were predominantly from NCERT and faced no technical glitches in her exam.  

Expert Analysis for NEET 2019

Mr. Shailendra Maheshwari (Career Point) found that "Physics questions were equally from Class 11 and 12 syllabus with emphasis on Mechanics and Modern Physics which covered 50% of the questions asked. Current Electricity and Magnetic Effect of Current questions were easy ones. Physical Chemistry dominated the Chemistry section with 19 questions while 14 and 12 questions were from Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, respectively. Biology paper was moderate with 40 questions from Zoology and 50 questions from Botany."

Resonance Experts felt that questions from Biology and Chemistry were moderate while Physics was difficult for most. They opined  that 452 questions were easy, 200 were moderate and 60 were difficult. As the paper was relatively easier compared to 2018, the cutoffs could go high they felt.

Mode of Counselling: Online, Offline

Since medical colleges come under the central authorities as well as the state ones, NEET counselling is broadly of two types. One is the All India counselling conducted by DGHS for 15% of the seats in the government colleges in the country, deemed and central university seats as well as ESIC and AFMS seats. The second is the state counselling held by each individual state medical council for the rest of the 85% of the seats in the government colleges, state run universities and the private medical colleges of the state. Only students who qualify in NEET will be eligible for the counselling subject to certain regulations.

NEET counselling is generally held in two rounds followed by a mop-up round for any vacant seats left after the first two rounds. Candidates must apply for the NEET counselling as per their eligibility. An important point to note is that all candidates who qualify in NEET 2020 will be eligible to apply for the All India NEET counselling. However, for the respective state counselling of NEET, the admissions will be open to factors like domicile, residency in state etc. Candidates must check whether they meet the state admission criteria before applying for the NEET counselling of the state.

NEET seat allotment will be based on the All India Rank of the applicants, choice of colleges entered, seat availability, reservation criteria etc.

is this possible to get 550+ marks in neet 2020 in this last 5 months?i have completed only 30% of syllabus and studying 12 hours per day from now.is this possible to get govt college in west bengal?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Anwesha, you have 5 months left at your disposal to complete the rest 70% of the syllabus. 12 hours a day for 5 months is approximately  1835 hours of preparation. With this dedication, I would seriously doubt why you cant get a seat. Of course, you can. Depending upon your Category, you should set a pre-defined target. If you belong to Reserved Categories, 550 will be a good score. But if you belong to General Category or OBC-A/B, you should aim for nothing less than 600. Now, with those many hours at your disposal, you need a perfect plan to study and put your dedication and resources to optimum utilisation. Concentrate on Biology as this has the scope of letting you secure half of your NEET marks. Biology is the biggest section in NEET, comprising about half of the exam with 360 marks, and acing this subject can help you in scoring more in the exam. Human Physiology and Genetics have maximum weightage in NEET. It is advisable to practise questions of Genetics from previous year question papers, which will give you a thorough understanding of how the questions are being asked. Topics of Plant and Animal kingdom have a lot of portion to memorize. You can prepare these topics by making a comparative table for the sub-topics and studying it together. Plant physiology is also equally important and easy to score. For more tips, please visit our page at: https://medicine.careers360.com/articles/how-prepare-for-neet-biology . Next focus should be on Chemistry. Chemistry is divided into Inorganic, Physical and Organic chemistry. For inorganic chemistry, you must refer to the NCERT. Organic comprises of many reactions and reagents which can be practised by writing over and over again. Physical chemistry requires a comparatively deeper understanding of concepts, so preparing with the NCERT and referring to study material a level higher than NCERT should be the way to go. For more information, please visit our page at: https://medicine.careers360.com/articles/how-prepare-for-neet-chemistry . Last but not the least, Physics needs utmost focus and time because it involves with theoretical concepts and numbers. There should be a systematic approach in preparing for NEET. The important topics are Mechanics, ElectroDynamics, Modern Physics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Optics, Simple Harmonic Motion, Waves. Formulae form an integral part of your preparation. Memorise as many formulae as you can and write them down and stick them as post its so that you can always see them. Practise regularly and try various kinds of questions. Solving previous papers and mock tests to test your improvement. Keep a clock and check the time its taking you to solve these questions. And improve the time as you practise more. One day of the week should be set aside for revision so as to keep the mind fresh.
