National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) that replaced the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) last year, tests your knowledge in three subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This objective type paper covers vast syllabus and only those who have an in-depth knowledge about the subject and quick problem solving ability stand a chance to crack this exam.
Besides seeking expert guidance and devoting considerable time for self study, it is essential to test your knowledge from time to time and this is best done by solving NEET sample papers and previous years’ exam papers. Many students purchase bundles of sample papers and try solving them regularly but still fail to achieve the desired result. Here is how to make the most of NEET sample papers for effective preparation of the exam.
- Cover Substantial Amount of Syllabus
Sample papers cover the entire syllabus. Questions in each NEET sample paper are picked from different chapters just the way it is done in the actual NEET paper. It is thus wise to begin solving these papers only when you are through with a substantial amount of syllabus. Starting with the sample papers from the beginning would only waste your time and leave you dissatisfied as you wouldn’t have answers to most of the questions.
- Time Your Paper
Make sure you solve the NEET sample papers within a stipulated time each and every time. This would help enhance your speed, accuracy and problem solving skills. This way you will also learn how to manage your time efficiently during the exam so as to complete your paper on time.
- Look for Solutions
NEET sample papers usually come with solutions. Students mostly tend to look at the answers before solving the questions especially when it comes to equations. This is a wrong practice. The answers are given there for your reference. However, you must solve the questions first and then look for the solutions to make the most of the NEET sample papers.
- Solve Regularly
Make it a practice to solve NEET sample papers regularly (preferably twice or thrice a week) if you really want to benefit from them. Solving a paper or two in a month would not do any good.
- Set Goals
Setting goals is a good way to enhance your performance. It is thus suggested to set a score to be achieved every time you solve the NEET sample papers. Aim for higher score each time and do your best to attain the same. It is a good idea to reward yourself each time you manage to touch the set goal. This will motivate you to work harder and score better.
