Utilise the School Time for Board Exam Preparation:

Preparing for NEET is no cakewalk. One has to start the preparation, if not two then at least one year before the exam date. So, utilise as much of your school time as possible to concentrate on your board exam syllabus. With this, you can focus on NEET preparation for the rest of the day. Do not underestimate your school lectures. If you concentrate on them properly, half of your preparation will be done. 

Master Different Types of Problems:

No matter if you are preparing for 12th exams or NEET, diversify by trying different kinds of problems, be it theoretical or numericals. Work on your calculation skills making it faster as this will help you with time management in NEET as well. 

Go for NCERT Books:

NCERT books are known to be the source of many of the questions that are asked in NEET. Experts advise on studying NCERT books for the preparation for this entrance exam. The great thing about this is that, through this, you will also end up covering your 12th board syllabus. But, this doesn’t mean that you only have to stick to NCERT books. Make sure to go for different editions and reference books with sample papers in them. There are many reference books in the market that include questions asked in competitive exams. 

Make Notes:

In a way, making notes is indispensable for the preparation of something as important as board exams and NEET. Everything you read must be converted into short notes and kept safe as they come in handy at the time of revision. 

Don’t Panic and Give Yourself Time to Breathe:

By asking you to give yourself time to breathe, we mean that don’t forget to create a balance between your studies and recreational activities. As the famous old saying goes, ‘A healthy mind lives in a healthy body, you must give yourself rest to be physically healthy.
