NEET 2018: Never commit these mistakes
Don’t ignore time-tables
Make a time-table and follow it. Strictly following timetables will help you to revise the syllabus quickly and to evade any last minute panic and anxiety. A good timetable helps you to prepare well and relax your minds before the exam.
Not following NCERT
The NEET exams mainly follow the pattern of NCERT. If you evade course books and prepare yourself with study materials, then you will come up answering 70 to 80 per cent of the questions. NCERT provides basic concepts and the solved questions for the majority of the questions for NEET.
Don’t ignore subjects
Every subject is equally important to crack the examination. So make a balance in your preparation, give more time on weak subjects, but don’t ignore other subjects. The strategy, if followed, can lead you to loose easy marks in the examinations, as it reduces the chance of answering simple questions which may appear in the subjects they ignore.
Don’t waste your time on mistakes you have already committed because it will lead to waste of time and you can lose your confidence. The best way to avoid this habit is to practice mock tests as much as possible that will help to build your self-confidence, which will act as a boon in the examination hall.
