NEET 2023: Preparation tips for droppers

If you are a dropper, you will need a different preparation strategy than a first-time taker.

  • To begin with, the preparation tip for NEET droppers is to find out what went wrong in the previous attempt. Write down the mistakes made on the last attempt and then improve them. Pragya Shree, AIR 4202 NEET 2021 rank holder who dropped, also recommends taking notes often.

  • Setting a score target for the NEET exam 2023 is essential. This can be done by analysing the cutoffs of the medical colleges where droppers want to receive admission. A thorough preparation and regular practice will enable any aspirant to achieve a target score in NEET UG 2023.

  • Aspirants must dedicate half their day to studying for NEET 2023 once they have set their target score. This will assist them in forming a winning strategy & achieving success. NEET dropouts need to devise new strategies despite being familiar with the syllabus and pattern.

  • It is better to practise NEET previous year's question papers regularly to understand the test's level and structure better. Practising will help you perform better on NEET 2023 exam day.

  • While preparing for NEET 2023, candidates are encouraged not to fall prey to negativity. Be surrounded by people who are committed to providing you with the best support while you prepare for the NEET. Assemble a NEET 2023 preparation strategy using constructive suggestions.

  • Health and fitness are important to candidates, and they should know they can only attempt the questions if they are physically and mentally fit.
