NEET Eligibility Criteria – Number of Attempts
The cap on the number of attempts was removed for NEET 2018 . As per the NEET eligibility criteria, candidates can appear for the entrance exam as many times as they wish provided they fulfill the above-mentioned criteria
NEET required to prepare a tentative study plan to cover all the subjects effectively
- Effective Study Plan
- Allocate time based on your strengths and weaknesses
- Study for a minimum of 3 hours at a stretch
- Practice Regularly
- Start with NCERT books
- Take down notes and formulas
- List out important chapters and focus more
- Solve Practice questions for each chapter
- Practice weaker areas
- Solve more and more question papers will also increase the speed of the candidate
- Take Full-Length Mock Tests
- Revise Regularly
- put emphasis on important and weak areas
- Revise the formulas and their derivations
- Go through important reactions, equations and mechanisms
- Refer NCERT books of Class 11 and 12 by attempting all the questions and then move on to reference books.
- Solve MCQs for Physical Chemistry and learn concepts of Inorganic Chemistry. Clarify concepts to prepare for Organic Chemistry.
- Some important topics in Chemistry are Thermodynamics, Hydrocarbons, Equilibrium, Carbonyl Compounds, Mole Concept, Chemical Bonding, Coordination Compounds and Coordination Compounds.
- Biology is the most important section as it carries 50% weightage.
- To prepare for NEET 2019 Biology, revisions with the practical test are necessary elements.
- Use mnemonics to remember terms.
- Important Topics in Biology are Structural Organization in Animals and Plants, Diversity in Living World, Cell Structure and Functions, Human Physiology, Plant Physiology, Reproduction, Biology and Human Welfare, Genetics and Evolution, and Biotechnology and its Applications.
- Physics is considered as the most difficult sections of NEET UG. Candidates must have a conceptual clarity to prepare for NEET Physics. a good source of physics theory is available at Examsnet physic notes probably the best physics material ever produced for CBSE
- While preparing for NEET Physics, make short notes for all the important points and formulae in each chapter.
- Important topics in Physics are Thermodynamics, Dimensional Analysis, Current Electricity and Heat Transfer, Kinetic Theory of Gases, Geometrical Optics, Electromagnetic Induction and Waves & Sound
