Preparing for the NEET is the first step and this starts in class 11 for most students aspiring to appear for the exam. With the fierce competition and less seats, qualifying with a very good NEET 2021 score requires the best efforts. While there are no hard fast rules to crack NEET exam, some basic guidelines have to be followed to qualify with a high NEET score. Some important rules to crack NEET 2021 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, the 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 you - Having a daily schedule with a provision 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.
Some important NEET resources and tips: Well, if one had an inkling of the most important topics to focus on, preparing for NEET 2021 would become easier. Some of the resources useful for NEET preparation are
|Best books for Biology||Best Books for Chemistry||Best Books for Physics|
|Objective Biology (volumes 1 & 2) by GR Bathla||Physical Chemistry by O.P. Tandon||Concepts of Physics, part 1 and 2 by H C Verma|
|Biology Classes 11 and 12 (Volume 1 & 2) by Pradeep Publications||Oxford’s Organic Chemistry by Jonathan Clayden, Nick Greeves||Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker|
|Objective Biology (Volume 1, 2, and 3 along with Practice Papers) by Dinesh Publications||Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J D Lee||Objective Physics for the medical entrance examination (volumes 1 and 2) by DC Pandey|
|A Class Book for Botany by A C Dutta||MTG’s Objective NCERT at your fingertips by MTG Editorial Board||NCERT Exemplar Class 11 and 12|
|Objective Biology (volumes 1 and 2) by Trueman Publications||Modern’s ABC of Chemistry of Classes 11 and 12 (volumes 1 and 2) by S.P. Jauhar||Physics MCQ by D Mukherjee|
Mock Tests and Sample Papers of NEET - Simply studying alone will not help crack NEET 2021. Practice helps perfect all concepts learnt for NEET exam. So the past 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 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 prepared by them for NEET 2021; however time given to their minds to relax is also a much needed task. No one can study all day long and this is something that needs to be 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 during all the hectic preparation for NEET exam.

Pre NEET Student Reactions 2020
Prashant: I have not faced any issue reaching the exam centre. Because I was not prepared for the exam in May, therefore, the postponement has been a benefit for me and I'm sure for other students as well.
Siddharth: I was 10-15 minutes late due to traffic and the gate has been closed at 1:30 PM. I was very well prepared, however, the invigilators did not let me.
Hemant: My feelings are mutual towards the postponement of NEET due to the lockdown. Neither it proved to be beneficial for me, nor a loss. I'm best prepared in Biology.
Aditya: According to me, NEET should be further postponed, since Coronavirus is at its peak. I have tried to study through a coaching centre, however, the lockdown was implemented throughout the country.
NEET 2020 Post Exam Student Reactions
Most students agreed that a major chunk of the questions asked was NCERT based. The paper was found relatively easy as compared to NEET 2020 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.
Veer Shekhawat: This was my third attempt This year's question paper was easy as compared to last year and the question papers were simple. There was no out of syllabus question asked in the exam. The entry and exit process were maintained in a very appreciative manner. I expect 630-635 marks in the exam. I want to take admission to SMS College, Jaipur.
Akhil: This was my second attempt and I answered well in the NEET exam. The question paper was average in terms of difficulty level. Almost all topics and chapters were covered from the Physics section of the NEET question paper. Biology was entirely from NCERT.
Ayushi: This was my first attempt. Only the Physics section was difficult otherwise everything was quite good. I wish to join a government college which I will decide after the NEET result.
