How to revise for NEET? 

Here are some tips on how to clear NEET in 1 month. 

1. Rush up all the concepts

In the final stage of preparation, don’t leave out any concept. Study them carefully and try to retain as much information as you can. Most questions in the NEET exam are based on small concepts and theories. Hence, it’s important to brush up on all the concepts, theories, definitions, formulae, and derivations to be able to solve difficult problems. Revise chapter-wise, identify the important topics, and make notes to study them frequently. 

2. Practice 

The best way to retain all that you’ve studied is by practicing it. There are many sources available online that help you revise in the best possible way. Mock tests, previous years’ question papers are some of the resources that are of value while revising. Dedicate at least 2-3 hours every day practicing a mock test and solving questions. Mark yourself, identify your weak areas, and work on them. 

This practice will not just help you revise better, but will also get you in the rhythm for taking the final exam. When you get used to the paper pattern and the type of questions, the final exam doesn’t come as a surprise to you. You’ve learned how to attempt an exam and that makes you more confident, leading to a higher score. 

3. Relevant study material 

Revision doesn’t imply studying all the material there is in the world. For instance, in the revision period, some candidates go over JEE sample papers to get a fair idea of the type of questions that appear in the competitive exams. This is a huge myth and can do more harm than good. 

JEE is more focused on Mathematics and that reflects in the Physics and Chemistry sections as well. The questions are more Math-oriented to assess the overall knowledge of the candidate. NEET, however, is more focused on Biology, which implies that the questions are less Math-related. Therefore, focus on only the material most relevant to NEET than any other exam. This focused preparation will help you do better at the exam. 

4. De-stress 

Studying under stress reduces productivity. If you’re stressed, take a break from your preparation and indulge in a hobby or interest to keep yourself motivated. 

When you’re finally in a good place, mentally, start studying again to put your most focus on the preparation. When you’re refreshed and motivated, learning is at its best and that’s how to revise fast for the exam. 

5. Divide your time properly 

Suppose you study for 9 hours a day. In this case, your study hours should be divided equally between the 3 subjects- Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. If you’re confident about your preparation in any one subject, you can allot slightly lesser time to it and use that time to study your weak subjects. But this division is only beneficial if you don’t use all your time on one topic/subject, completely disregarding the others. 

 6. Identify the output 

When you’re studying for a certain number of hours, not all hours are spent productively. The rest go in vain. Therefore, the aspirants must identify their most productive hours and schedule the most important topics then. This way, their most focused hours are spent on learning something difficult, which stays on their mind for a long time. 

7. Analyse your performance 

After preparing, revising, and taking mock tests, analyze your results. Understand how you’re performing. Identify your weak areas, and devote most of your revision time to study those topics better. Practice, practice, and practice, to become better and understand those concepts by heart. 

8. Healthy lifestyle 

Maintaining a healthy routine is as important as your NEET preparation. The right routine will not only keep you healthy, physically and mentally but also keep you motivated to prepare for the exam. Therefore, building a routine and sticking to it is essential for your preparation. Here are some activities you can include in your daily routine: 

  • Wake up early in the morning 
  • Have a nutritious breakfast 
  • Spend some time in nature, taking a walk, or working out 
  • Study for 2-3 hours 
  • Take a small break 
  • Revise what you have studied before work on the weak topics 
  • Time for lunch 
  • Study for 2-3 hours 
  • Take a break to engage in some physical work like brisk walking or exercising 
  • Have some healthy evening snacks 
  • Have a light and healthy dinner for easy digestion 
  • Go to bed feeling refreshed 

9. Revise 

The best way to be prepared just in time for the NEET exam and ensure that all your preparation stays with you is through a thorough revision.
