How to clear NEET 2019 in first attempt?


The NEET exam is a highly competitive examination with lakhs of students vying for a limited number of seats in the MBBS and BDS courses (except AIIMS and JIPMER). The NEET exam syllabus is similar to the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology syllabus of Class 11 and 12. Also, most students prepare for their board exams along with NEET. In this article, we will offer tips on clearing NEET in your first attempt.

Why the first attempt? If you are not well-prepared, you can always attempt again, right? Technically, you can. However, looking at the list of toppers in recent years, you might find that almost all of them topped the exam in their first attempts. If you think about it, the reason is simple. As you study for your board exams, you learn the same topics as you would for NEET. Therefore, strategically creating a study plan that helps you intensify your preparation is better than putting it off for the next year.

How to clear NEET in the first attempt

If you are wondering how to clear NEET in the first attempt and your board exams, you must remember that your first attempt is your best shot at cracking the exam. Rather than getting intimidated by two major exams in close succession, you must look at it as an opportunity to prepare in a manner that benefits the exam. Here are some tips that can help:

Assess your level of preparation

The NEET exam includes the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology syllabus of classes 10 and 12. Therefore, you are already aware of certain concepts. Hence, before you start preparing for NEET, solve some sample papers or previous years’ question papers or appear for a test series. Assess your performance by analyzing your responses. Find out how many incorrect answers did you choose and why? Do you need to revisit the basics, or were they calculation errors? In other words, identify your strong areas and areas that need improvement. Once you are clear about these, you can start creating a study plan.

Create a Study Plan

Once you have identified your weak and strong areas, create a study plan that will enable you to improve on your weak areas and build on your strengths. A study plan allows you to approach the preparation in a methodical and structured manner. Allocate subjects across different days/weeks and make a timetable with a daily schedule. Spend time creating a study plan and ensuring that you consider all aspects like eating, sleeping, etc. Also, ensure that you give enough time to each section and solve problems.

Work with deadlines

While creating a study plan, create long and short-term goals. For example, you might want to finish the basics of Physics in X days as a long-term goal and have short-term goals for particular topics. Stick to these goals, and they will keep you motivated and focused.

Get good study material.

While the NCERT books can help you understand the basics of the syllabus topics, you will need to refer to some additional books to clear NEET on the first attempt. Talk to your mentor/guide or professors and ensure you have a good study material.

Make Notes

Many students underestimate the importance of self-written notes. When you understand a concept or find a great way to solve a particular set of problems quickly, ensure that you note it in your notebook; these notes help you revise efficiently and be a great asset during the last few days before the exam.

Evaluate yourself regularly

Keep solving sample papers or taking tests regularly to assess your improvement. Understanding concepts and solving practice problems are one thing; applying the learning to questions in a test scenario is quite another. Solving sample papers or taking mock tests will assess if you need to revisit certain basics or practice solving more problems.

Stay confident and positive.

One of the ground rules of clearing NEET in the first attempt is believing that you can. Staying positive and confident allows you never to give up, even if the study schedule seems too much to handle. Further, it will enable you to enter the examination hall calmly and composedly and attempt the paper without any stress.

Summing Up

While bagging a good score and getting the desired seat with a good medical institute seems like an uphill task, you can achieve it by following the tips mentioned above. Remember, you will never have enough time to prepare for an exam. It would help if you learned to manage your time more efficiently by planning your studies and sticking to the plan. So, gear yourself up and crack the NEET. Good Luck!
