This will help in overcoming the fear of your weakness effectively. Until and unless you make a complete and thorough schedule of the way you want to study, you will not be able to complete the syllabus. Plan for the Do not fall for guesswork.
Many candidates have the tendency of applying guesswork to questions they don’t know. However, it might prove risky in this case as there is negative marking for a wrong answer. It is recommended to leave a question completely if you do not know the right answer.week in advance.
Figure out chapters that you need to prepare from the beginning and chapters that will need only revision. Working in this manner will help you cover all parts of the syllabus uniformly. Allot time for each segment and try and maintain that.
Practice mock test papers: One of the greatest hurdles of the NEET-UG examination is the time limitation. Candidates have to finish 180 questions in 180 minutes (3 hours).
