For those wondering whether it is possible to prepare for NEET in four months, Josh said: “If aspirants are committed to put in their best efforts then 120 days are sufficient to crack NEET-21.” The smart aspirants will adopt a strategy based on their management of time, scoring areas, and strengths. “It is best to proceed with a preparation strategy, which divides and allots your preparation time for different topics according to the weightage of marks. Hone your strengths and give extra time for this,” added Joshi.

NEET timetable for time management
Students have to cover the entire NEET syllabus of physics, chemistry, and biology. In addition to mastering the syllabus, students also have to practice mock tests, previous years’ question papers, and revise all topics. Time management plays a crucial role in preparation for NEET exam 2021. “In addition, make a time table and follow it rigorously and note down all your doubts so that they can be cleared before the exam. Time management is another essential tool for cracking NEET and to ensure this, one must take multiple mock tests throughout your preparation,” explained Joshi.

Questions asked in NEET physics section are usually tricky, require calculations and concept-based. “Read the notes carefully for clarity on the concepts and formulae. Additionally, maintain a register for formulae and revise them regularly. Solve as many questions and numericals as you can to score over 150 in physics,” he added.
