Don’t prepare without a study plan

The NEET exam requires a concrete plan and strategy-wise preparation. During the last week of NEET 2021 preparation, hard-working aspirants need a proper study plan to ace the medical entrance exam. As in the last week, the NEET 2021 study plan will avoid unnecessary pressure on medical aspirants.

Do not ignore revision

One of the mistakes that candidates should avoid during these last weeks of preparation is to not revise the NEET concepts that they have studied. Studying new topics and not revising what they have already studied might prove to be detrimental for the candidates. The preparation will be futile if a candidate is not able to recall what he or she has studied on the day of the exam.

Improve time management

In the last phase of the NEET preparation, candidates must keep in mind that they do not waste time. As any carelessness on time will cost a deduction of marks in the NEET exam. A proper study plan, and adhering to it will help aspirants in managing the time for their NEET preparation.

A top NEET-UG educator at Unacademy, Mayank Joshi said, “Time management is another essential tool for cracking NEET, and to ensure this, one must take multiple mock tests throughout your preparation.”

Avoid studying any new NEET concepts

As per experts’ suggestions, medical aspirants should not start or focus on any new NEET concepts. Starting a new topic will create unnecessary chaos for the students and there are chances they might lose their confidence and focus.

Students should try to work on their basic concepts for the NEET exam and try to make sure that they can attempt any question on the same concepts if they will get in the exam.

Don’t forget to solve last years’ question papers

The common mistake that candidates make while preparing for NEET 2021 is not using the previous years’ question papers. Solving the last years’ papers will help candidates to prepare better for the exam. It will make them understand what they can expect and what topics carry the maximum weightage.
