Important Preparation Tips for NEET 2020

Hello everyone, we’re almost done with the second month of 2020 which means there are only about 2 months left for the biggest medical examination of the country – NEET 2020, on May 3, 2020. 

NEET or National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is the most coveted medical examination in India that helps students get admission to undergraduate MBBS/BDS/Ayush and other medical courses. 

Till 2019, the Institutes of National Interest like AIIMS and JIPMER conducted their own entrance examinations which will not be the same this year. As per the conditions of National Medical Commission 2019, admission to AIIMS and JIPMER too will be done on the basis of NEET 2020 scores this year. 

This implies that the number of seats for admission has increased BUT it also means that the number of students eyeing those seats has also increased by lakhs! Hence, the competition is way tougher this year as against the previous years’. Therefore, it is important that the students rev up their prep game and ensure that they are ready for NEET 2020 to score their highest possible scores. 

While each student has their own study pattern, there are some crucial techniques that one must follow to prepare appropriately.

As per the NEET examination pattern, the paper is set in pen and paper mode with Multiple Choice Questions. Each question has 4 options with one correct answer. While a correct answer rewards the student 4 positive marks, a wrong answer will result in deduction of one mark. This means that if a candidate doesn’t know the syllabus well, he/she could possibly end up giving some wrong answers which would result in negative marking. Therefore, it is important that the students know their syllabus well along with the marks distribution as per each subject.
