With just about 3 months left for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 it is time for all you medical aspirants to gear up. The time is crucial and you cannot afford to waste a single minute if you really aim to crack the exam. Whether you have covered the entire syllabus or are yet to cover it the last 3 months strategy to prepare for NEET shared below should come handy:
1. Demarcate the Topics
You must have covered the syllabus by now or might be on the verge of completing it. If you still have certain topics left then it is suggested to begin by demarcating them so as to have a clear idea about what needs to be covered. Once you have the topics handy, prepare a schedule to finish them as soon as possible preferably within one month so that you have at least two months left exclusively for revision.
2. Revise Thoroughly
It is the time when you must revise and re-revise the topics over and over again to be thorough with them. Do away with your guide books and other study material and revise from the notes you have prepared over the year. Revision should ideally be done at that time of the day when you can concentrate best so as to grasp your lessons quickly and retain them for long.
3. Test Your Knowledge
It is essential to test your knowledge during this time in order to know as to how well-prepared you are for your exam and the best way to do this is by giving mock tests. This helps you test your knowledge in real time. By giving these tests you are not only able to figure out your weak areas but also learn how to manage time efficiently during the exam. Also do not forget to solve previous years’ examination papers.
4. Go for Group Studies
Group studies are a great way to break the monotony as well as test your knowledge. It is thus a good idea to go for it every once in a while. This may also help you figure out something you might have missed otherwise.
5. Eat Right
You cannot afford to fall ill at this time. You should thus take utmost care of what you eat. Have a healthy diet full of various essential micronutrients. A nutritious diet will build strong immunity and keep you energised through the day. Avoid oily and sugary items and also steer clear from street food.
6. Sleep Well
Sleep deprivation also leads to ill health. You must ensure you sleep for at least 7-8 hours a day to wake up fresh and concentrate better.
