Exam-season is on in full swing. Soon after board exams, the season of competitive exams commences, but the preparation for these exams begins much before the board-exam preparations. Candidates appearing for NEET especially, begin preparing for the exams from Class 11 itself by going through NEET Exam Question papers primarily. However, as we get closer to D-day, the pressure, pre-exam jitters come to a crescendo. All our preparations seem to be a speck in front of the gigantic waves in the name of NEET exams. But fret not, we have got you covered. This article provides some powerful tips, helping you beat those heebie-jeebies, courtesy NEET exams.
NEET, one of the most coveted and highly prestigious exams of the country enables qualifying students an entry into medical programmes/courses across the country. Given the level of competition of the exams, one requires a top-notch preparation. This is the reason why we have come up with the best set of tips that will help you come out of it with flying colours.
Last-minute studies are all about being in the right frame of mind, along with the presence of mind to be precise and grabbing the most of the remaining time. Read on to find how you can make the most of it.
- Revise the topics having maximum weightage first
This comes first in the list as this is the most important tip. Just before entering the exam hall, literally in the last few minutes, your complete focus should be on revising chapters having the maximum weightage, so that you are covering most of the marks.
- Cover topics with the help of video tutorials
Studying at the eleventh hour can always be a task as it seems overwhelming to revise from the same set of notes. To give this a new angle, you can watch video tutorials for the topics. As it is rightly quoted “A picture is worth a thousand words”, a visual can have a lasting impact on a student’s brain. Visual learning is a better way to learn, compared to traditional learning methodologies.
- Avoid learning something new at the crunch time
During the last few days/minutes one must definitely avoid touching up on new topics. This not only demands attention but may also interfere with the already learnt matter around those topics, inviting new confusions and questions, which you certainly do not want in the last few minutes. All this, of course, if you are prone to last-minute confusions strictly. If you can manage to learn and understand the matter at any point, then you can go ahead.
- Guesswork – a big no
If you have practised NEET exam question papers or taken up mock tests, you would have been suggested to always take up these exams in ideal exam scenarios. One big part of the ideal exam hall scenario was to avoid guesswork. As we are all well-aware of the NEET marking scheme, negative marking to be precise (1 mark deducted for every incorrect response), there should be absolutely no room for any mere conjectures.
