4. Choosing various different sources of study materials: While we know that studying from a single book is insufficient for NEET 2023 preparation, it is also important to remember that studying from many books for each topic can lead to confusion and difficulties, creating obstacles for students to complete their syllabus on time. NCERT Books are the best source of study material for NEET UG as a lot of questions are directly from these textbooks.

5. Aspirants forcing themselves to stay in a room throughout the day and study: While some may believe that students should simply shut themselves in their rooms and study all day, but it is always said that the aspirants must also relax to keep their minds fresh and active. Taking regular breaks and going for a short walk in the park, or simply sitting with your family or with your loved ones, might assist to relax the brain and recover concentration.
