The syllabus of NEET-UG is vast. A student must spend at least six to eight months for the preparation so that he/ she can achieve a good rank, which will eventually lead to admission in top medical colleges. If you are aiming for an MBBS seat in a government medical college, eight months' preparation is the best option. Experts from CollegeDekho have come up with full proof to ace the NEET UG exam. Have a look! Also, there have been changes in the NEET 2021 Exam Pattern, there will now be more questions in the paper.

    NEET UG Preparation Strategy (6 Months/ 8 Months/ 3 Months) - Time Table, Study Plan

    NEET UG syllabus is an ocean, and to swim the ocean, it is necessary to know where the sea coast is exactly located. Before starting the preparation for the NEET UG exam, it is necessary to divide the syllabus. There are different techniques to divide the syllabus, and we are here to help you with the division of syllabus through the examples below.

    Example 1 (for Six Months):

    Subjects in NEET UG





    No. Of Chapters in Physics


    No. Of Chapters in Chemistry


    No. Of Chapters in Biology (Botany and Zoology)


    How many Months to Prepare for the Exam?

    Six Months (180 Days)

    No. Of Days to Revise Each Subject

    45 Days

    Total. No. Of Days to Revise Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany and Zoology)

    45+45+45 = 135 Days

    Total No. Of Days Left for Practicing Mock Tests

    45 Days

    Is this strategy practically possible?


    Example 2 (Eight Months):

    Subjects in NEET UG





    No. Of Chapters in Physics


    No. Of Chapters in Chemistry


    No. Of Chapters in Biology (Botany and Zoology)


    How many Months to Prepare for the Exam?

    Eight Months (240 Days)

    No. Of Days to Revise Each Subject

    60 Days

    Total. No. Of Days to Revise Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany and Zoology)

    60+60+60 = 180 Days

    Total No. Of Days Left for Practicing Mock Tests

    60 Days

    Is this strategy practically possible?


    Example 3 (Three Months):

    Subjects in NEET UG





    No. Of Chapters in Physics


    No. Of Chapters in Chemistry


    No. Of Chapters in Biology (Botany and Zoology)


    How many Months to Prepare for the Exam?

    45 Days

    Total. No. Of Days to Revise Chemistry

    45 Days

    Total No. Of Days Left for Practicing Mock Tests

    90 Days (Regular Practice is Necessary)

    Is this strategy practically possible?

    Yes (for top-performing students/ first-rank holders in academics)

    Example 4 (One Month):

    One month of preparation for NEET-UG is practically impossible.

    NEET UG 180 Days Preparation Strategy

    The NEET-UG 2022 180 days preparation strategy will help the 2022 NEET-UG aspirants to begin their exam preparation in a more efficient manner. Here is how the NEET-UG 2022 aspirants can start preparing for the entrance exam with 180 days in their hands:

    • Detailed Understanding of the NEET-UG Syllabus: The first thing the aspirants must do is to go through the NEET-UG 2022 syllabus in a detailed manner. The aspirants must make a separate list of the important topics according to their weightage. This is also the best time for the applicants to familiarise themselves with the class XIth and XIIth NCERT syllabus and syllabus of other Board exams and listing out all the common topics. 

    • NEET-UG 2022 Exam Pattern: With 6 months to go for the NEET-UG 2022 entrance exam, the aspirants must start accumulating information regarding the NEET-UG 2022 exam pattern. The applicants can only prepare a successful strategy if they have a very good understanding of the exam pattern for NEET-UG test. 

    • Selecting Best NEET-UG 2022 Books: Finding the best books for NEET-UG 2022 exam can be a gruesome task. Selecting the best books from thousands of available study materials can also be time-consuming which the aspirants cannot afford to do when the days leading up to the NEET-UG exam are limited. So, the best time to search for the best books for NEET-UG 2022 preparation is 6 months prior to the date of the exam.

    • Prepare a Realistic Time-Table: Understanding the NEET-UG 2022 syllabus, exam pattern and best books will only become effective once the aspirants have a proper timetable in place. It is also important that preparing a timetable while the exam is still months away (6 months in this case) has its pros and cons. The ideal timetable at this stage should be more oriented towards achieving the smaller goals instead of far-fetched goals. 

    • Follow a Pattern: The aspirants should follow a pattern while preparing for NEET-UG 2022 exam. The best pattern, as per the previous year toppers, is to pick up a topic and go through it in a detailed manner followed by revision and analysis of the chosen topic.

    NEET-UG 60 Days Preparation Strategy

    The NEET-UG 2022 60 days preparation strategy is all about being resourceful. The preparation strategy will focus mostly on - how to utilize every minute to be able to get ready for the NEET-UG 2022 entrance exam. Here are some tips and tricks:

    • The aspirants must go through the NEET-UG 2022 syllabus and exam pattern in the most convincing manner possible because, with limited time, it will not be possible for them to return back to check the syllabus and exam pattern again and again

    • Everything should be familiar to the aspirants in those topics which can fetch them full marks. The difficult or time-consuming topics should be left alone because it will be foolish to hammer something new in the grey cells with just countable days remaining for the NEET-UG 2022 exam

    • While studying, the aspirants must prepare notes which can be used during the final revision stages

    • Maximum time should be dedicated to attempting a maximum number of NEET-UG previous year papers, sample test papers and NEET-UG 2022 mock test papers

    NEET General Preparation Tips 2022

    1. Grasp All the Information Related to NEET

    If you are aiming to crack NEET 2022, then you must not forget to have detailed information about the exam. Apart from keeping a track of NEET Latest News & Updates, you must focus on becoming familiar with the NEET exam pattern, topic-wise marks distribution, time duration and best NEET books to refer. Knowing all these details beforehand is the best way to prepare for NEET.

    2. Have a Clear Picture of NEET Syllabus in Your Mind

    Having a comprehensive knowledge of the syllabus is a must before you start your NEET 2022 preparation. NEET syllabus is quite vast, and therefore, it is advisable to divide the syllabus of different subjects into small parts for a better understanding.

    Knowing the syllabus completely will:

    • Enable you to segregate the topics that are hard and time-consuming from the quick and easy ones.

    • Give you a brief idea about conceptual, application-based and interconnected topics.

    3. Set your Priorities Right

    When it comes to the question 'How to Prepare for NEET?', it is quite important to set your priorities right. You should devise a proper study schedule so that you can keep track of your day-to-day activities. Devoting a considerable amount of time to your studies should be on the top of your list. However, you must not ignore your eating and sleeping habits in the process. Additionally, while studying for NEET, prioritise your subjects according to their weightage and the time required for preparation.

    4. Take Scheduled Breaks

    It has been observed quite often that candidates preparing for medical entrances have a habit of marathon study sessions. If you also fall into this category, then, the sooner you avoid this practice, the better it will be for you in the long run. To study in a better way, you must plan and take timely breaks in between the long study sessions. Gradually, by following this practice:

    • You will improve your focus and level of concentration.

    • You will be able to handle difficult and time-taking problems faster.

    5. Evaluation

    The final step, which completes the process of any exam preparation, is its evaluation. Without evaluation, your preparation for NEET will remain deficient. In order to evaluate your exam preparation, practising sample papers and mock tests on a regular basis might be your saviours. Apart from that, perpetual guidance from your mentors, seniors or fellow mates can help you immensely.

    Evaluation will:

    • Test your knowledge of key concepts.

    • Help you in knowing the specific areas where you need to work on.

    • Test your overall preparedness.
