New Delhi, April 25: National Testing Agency (NTA) will conduct NEET 2019 exam on May 5. This year around 15 lakh applicants have applied for the exam, making it amongst the most competitive. It is generally accepted that success in the exam hinges a great deal on long-term preparation, but still one can’t deny that things can change for the better or worse depending on how one utilises the remaining time.
Take for example, if one takes one’s feet off the pedal after working so hard till this point, it may undo all the hard work put in. However, if the candidate instead pushes on and presses all the right buttons, the chance of success would increase manifold.
Now the question is how does one press the right buttons!
Take note that NEET exam preparation in the last week is not the same as it was two months ago, or for that matter even two weeks ago. It is because, with time at a premium, one doesn’t have the luxury to indulge in any one topic and waste time. Every minute is precious and it has to be spent judiciously. Here are some last week preparation tips:
Do thorough revision - At this juncture, revision should take the bulk of the time along with solving of sample and question papers. Go through the topics quickly, unless they need a second look. If there are topics that needs more attention, chalk out a study plan without eating into time set aside for other topics. Also, go through all formulae and shortcuts.
Solving sample papers: Sample papers contain similar types of questions to those asked in the actual exam, so the candidate is better equipped to handle them in the exam. In fact, the more sample papers one solves, the more confidence one will carry to the exam hall.
Take mock tests: These tests are a simulation of the real thing and give an exam like ambience. Consequently, the candidate will learn how to handle pressure, time management, and also how to approach the exam.
Don’t take up new topics: If there are certain topics which haven’t yet studied even at this late stage, better leave them. Because otherwise you will end up spending precious time on something which will not pay even half the dividends.
Exam-day do's and don'ts
Solve the easy questions first - Instead of getting stuck with a difficult question, it is wise to first attempt the sure-shot questions.
Keep a hawk’s eye on the clock - It is important to be aware of how much time has passed and how much time is left in the clock. This will keep you one your toes, and stop wastage of time.
Don’t rely on guesswork: If you have attempted enough questions to make you believe you are in with a good chance of getting a seat, don’t throw it away with some wild guesswork. After all there is negative marking. However, if you are hopelessly placed, there is no harm in some guesswork!
Follow prescribed dress code and other guidelines - Take note that shoes, full-sleeved clothes, and ornaments are not allowed inside the exam venue. Follow the official dress code and keep distractions at bay.
If you follow these tips, you will greatly enhance your chances of chances of success in the exam.
