CBSE has decided to reduce the syllabus from Class IX to XII and this could also have an impact on the syllabus of NEET 2021. NEET 2021 is also expected to be the same as of previous year i.e. 3 main sections Physics, Chemistry, and Biology with a total of 180 questions worth 720 marks.

Preparation Tips For NEET Exam:


  1. Be prepared to sit long hours with your electronic devices because a good chunk of teaching is going to be online and you don't want to miss it.
  2. Start small to go big.
  3. Be creative around your study material. Play with it. Notes making is a very customised and individualistic art. Create your own.
  4. Take at least one complex topic as part of your daily challenges.
  5. Revise. Revise. Revise. Success in NEET relies heavily on 2 things-a) Retention and b) Recollection.
  6. Look for a good guide/coach/teacher for each of your 3 subjects. And once you find a teacher that suits your style, stick with them, show all trust in them for they want you to succeed as much as you do.
  7. Learning tools: work over your weaker learning aspects by using appropriate learning tools, memory tools, and cognitive tools.
  8. Don't study for long hours! A good 3 hours put steadily from now on shall give you an edge.
  9. Rest. This in fact is the most critical step. If you don't rest your mind-body adequately, your efforts will not show results which will lead to frustration and exasperation and you will feel like giving up or finding ways to avoid the frustration. We all know where it leads.
  10. Eat well, healthy and nutritious food is imperative for a sharp mind. You may enjoy your comfort food once in a while.
  11. Revise. Revise. Revise! This part needs to be given the most importance.
