Experts tips to crack NEET
Tips from experts to Crack NEET – The NEET Exam is the only entrance exam for admission to medical and dental degree courses in India and so, there is a lot of competition. Here we have some important tips to crack NEET UG exam. National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (UG) or NEET is an entrance exam conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) for admission to MBBS/ BDS courses in Indian in Medical/Dental colleges in India.
Earlier the entrance test for admission into BDS/ MBBS was known as All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT). It was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education for admitting students to the different medical and dental courses. But NEET (UG) replaced the AIPMT in the year 2013. It is a single entrance test for admission to more than 66,000 MBBS and BDS seats across India. From 2019 National Testing Agency was handed over the responsibility to conduct NEET Exam. For the academic session 2020-21, the NEET UG will be a single medical entrance exam for admission to all institutes including AIIMS and JIPMER.
The total time duration of the NEET exam will be 3 hours with a total of 180 questions (Biology: 90 questions, Physics: 45 questions and Chemistry: 45 questions). For each correct answer, one gets 4 marks and a negative of 1 mark is given for an incorrect attempt.
Syllabus for the NEET exam
The test will cover the following subjects:
Physics, Chemistry and Biology

Strategy for the Test
Aakash Chaudhary, Director, Aakash Educational Services Ltd., said that the subject of Physics holds the greatest challenge for students taking the medical entrance test, especially examinations like the NEET, reported HT. Medical aspirants need to develop certain numerical ability to tackle the various concepts of the subject. He has advised the students to make the NCERT books for NEET as the main guidance for clearing the fundamentals of theory. Besides, the students must also practice to apply their concepts and reasoning capacities within a fixed period of time. The trick is to take 50 questions from a question bank for NEET and trying to complete them in an hour. This will help students to prepare for situations where time becomes a major constraint. He also assured that around 85 percent of the questions in the NEET are either easy or average to attempt as many of them are based on formulas. Preparing formula charts for subjects like kinematics, electrostatics, laws of motion will be helpful for students to tackle the test. Solving full-length mock test papers is very important as it makes you test your speed and accuracy.
Chaudhury has also asked students to initially deal with physical Chemistry and to remember all important formulae of the subjects. Then, students should try to have a clear cut concept by solving as many multiple choice questions as they can. 50 questions must at least be attempted at one go. Students, good in mugging up can take advantage of their ability in the inorganic section of Chemistry. They must take the question papers of previous years as the reference and make a note of the areas comprising of the maximum questions. Students must also make it a point to revise daily the names of important minerals and chemicals. Topics such as P block Chemistry and coordination Chemistry are of utmost importance. Students must also have clarity in their concepts about Organic Chemistry.
As far as Biology is concerned, students must emphasize more on diagrams and the syllabus of class XII. The best way to tackle Biology is to adapt a learning style that best suits you. Experts say that there are also more questions from plant physiology, cell Biology, ecology, bimolecular, biotechnology as compared to the exams of previous years.
A suggestion to crack NEET Exam is to logically divide the topics day wise. For instance, if you pick a tougher topic of Physics, then pick an easier topic in Chemistry and moderate one in Biology.
Concentrate on your weaker topics to improve them.
A herdle in securing a high rank in NEET is the time constraint. Solving 180 questions in 180 minutes is quite a tough task. Aspirants should attempt NEET mock tests in real time so that they are well prepared on the exam day. An ideal target is to complete Biology section in 40- 45 minutes, i.e 90 questions in 45 minutes with an accuracy level of about 290-300 marks. By doing this, you will have enough time for calculation based questions of Chemistry and Physics. The practice tests also increase your accuracy level in the exam.
