The syllabus of NEET 2022 comprises many topics from different subjects. Breaking down the syllabus according to the level of difficulty of their weightage in the examination might make your last-minute preparation easier. You can sort the topics by any category that fits your preference. 

2. Stick to the Study Plan

Following a study plan is essential as it gives you an idea of how much time revising each topic is going to take to complete. Through this, it becomes easy for one to manage time before the examination. 

3. Maintain Discipline

One of the important steps in the preparation process and the point of making a study plan is to stick to it. For that, you will have to maintain discipline. Make sure to complete the daily targets that you have assigned yourself on the study plan. 

4. Practice and Revise

Regular practice and revision make your preparation productive and efficient. If you keep studying without revising, there are chances that you would forget some of the important things. So, make sure that you don’t forget any important piece of information that was asked in the exam only because you did not revise it, which often happens. 

5. Take Care of Your Health

2. Don’t Compare Yourself to Others

Everyone has their individual strengths and weaknesses. What is a cakewalk for you could be a daunting experience for others and vice versa. So, always go with your own flow and make a plan that fits your studying habits.

3. Don’t Procrastinate

Sticking to the study plan and completing tasks on or before the assigned deadline is crucial for healthy and productive preparation. Don’t leave your queries to be solved for another day. Resolve them at the earliest and move further. 

4. Don’t Avoid Recreational Activities

As much as it is important for you to study, it is equally important to give yourself some break and use it for doing something that you find relaxing. It could be watching TV, listening to music, reading a book or playing. Getting involved in recreational activities help you replenish and then your mind is able to concentrate even better.
