Prepare NEET 3 Months


The last leg of preparation for NEET is essentially the most crucial time. This is when a student Can “Make or Break” depending on the seriousness and the efforts put in. Since the curriculum would be over by this time the candidates can take a holistic look at their preparation and plan. With the right strategy and effective approach, NEET can be cracked in the first attempt itself. Those taking reattempt have a golden opportunity to get excellent rank if the plan is righteously followed.

While making this plan we assumed that the students have seriously prepared (with coaching or self-study) for a year or more.


Here is an effective and workable plan chalked out for you to crack NEET with flying colours.

1. Know your Preparedness

Before making any revision plan or strategy for NEET 2021, find out where you are standing. Explore your current preparedness, your subject-wise/chapter-wise/concept-wise present status. Get complete insights on it. Some points to evaluate would be – clarity of concepts, knowledge of basic laws/formulae/reactions, assessing strengths and weaknesses and ability to recall.

This step is the most essential, skipping it would result in nothing but waste of invaluable time. If you are thinking how to assess current preparedness, here are the ways

  1. Chapter-wise topic reckoning method.
    Take a blank paper and try to write down all the topics of the chapter in the same chronology as you studied. While doing so, in most likelihood, the classes and pages of the books that you studied would flash in your mind. If it happens effortlessly, you are in all probability through with those topics. In case you struggle to get through the topic names in order, there is a need to go back to those topics
  2. Random question solving technique
    Try solving few questions randomly from every chapter. Make a note of the mistakes (if any) you make. Choosing these questions from previous year NEET papers would be ideal as that would give you the right feedback.

Once you are ready with your diagnosis, categorize your strengths and weaknesses

2. Make a Study Time Table

The crux of success in NEET is in taming time. The key is in not spending time, but in investing it. Right time management will help you in revising the whole syllabus in a proper way. Make a time table following the given steps

  1. Identify the slots of your study time. Ideally at this stage of preparation you must invest at least 12 hours for your studies. This time includes the time you spend for your school/coaching classes and self-study. However, please ensure that you have at least 6 hours of daily self-study time.
  2. Keep one study slot of 3 hours. Try not to take any break during this slot. It is essential that you train your body to sit continuously for 3 hours and concentrate during that time because you are expected to do the same in your NEET exam.
  3. Keep a slot of 1 hour at the end of the day. Use this time to revise what you had studied during the day and make planning for the next day.
  4. Divide your study hours in further slots and allot different activities. You may follow the given below Time Management grid to effectively plan.
  Urgent Not Urgent
Important NECESSITY.
These are the work that requires your immediate attention. Like if you have a class, test or analysis session or you need to prepare for a test next day or there is a very important concept that you don’t know etc Allot time for it on priority
These are essential work but you can afford to delay. Defer them by a reasonable time frame. However be mindful not to delay inordinately. For eg. The questions of assignments, tests that you were unable to answer can be parked for weekend or take a test that you had missed etc.
Not Important DISTRACTION.
These works initiate your reactive brain and creates a false alarm, thereby making you invest a lot of time in unnecessary work. For eg, you need to submit your lab record work or you have a project of non PCMB subject at school etc. Either you get help or minimise your involvement in such activities.
These are work or activities which you may like but does not add to your productive. Get over the urge to watch the movie you have longed for or the cricket series you thought, you have to watch. Remember your NEET exam is more important than the Arsenal vs Liverpool match.

3. Get your resources ready

Once you are ready with your analysis of concepts and Study planner its time to get down to work. Analysing NEET papers of last few years, you must have realized that more than 95% of the questions are asked from NCERT, especially for Biology and Chemistry. We strongly advice that you should read from one book but practice from many.

You must have enough source of practice questions and test papers. Taking self-tests by simulating exam conditions helps a lot. Ensure you have good quality questions papers of part and full syllabus.

4. Revise Strategically

Three months may be a lot of time but, when it comes to NEET syllabus revision, it is not enough if not done with proper strategy. During revision focus on the following

  1. Focus more on the topics with higher weightage. You can take a look at Chapter-wise weightage in NEET
  2. After reading every chapter, try writing a short summary of the chapter. This will help you identify the loop-holes.
  3. Do a lot of assignments keeping time limit. Do not check your answers after every question but only after you have finished your targeted number of questions or after the set time limit is over
  4. Take weekly tests. In the last 2 weeks, you must take more tests( a test every alternate day is recommended)
  5. Devise and finalize your strategy of attempting the final paper. We recommend to start with Biology followed by chemistry and Physics. The idea is to save time in Biology and chemistry and invest in physics. Follow this plan (or whatever you decide) throughout all practice tests.
  6. Analyse each test paper after test is over. Ask why you could not do a question or why did you make a mistake. Try to find out the answer and them implement your learning in the next test to avoid mistakes.

4. Know where you can fail

Be aware of what could possibly go wrong and work on preventing it. Following are some areas where you may go wrong.

  1. The most common of all is loosing focus or being fatigued. Include regular physical exercise in your schedule, it will keep you active.
  2. Not studying/revising everyday. It is tempting to take a day’s break or be complacent of working a lot. Remember, there are lakhs who are also studying like you or may be even more.
  3. Trying to learn a completely new topic or exploring a topic much beyond the NEET level. We understand and value the joy of learning, but this period is the not the right time for it when your goal is very specific. Avoid getting distracted by redundant topics.
  4. Falling sick. Probably the worst thing you can do to yourself. Take care, eat healthy, exercise and stay fit. Give some time for your leisure activities.

5. Join a Crash Course

A focused Peer group can motivate you. Also, the teachers taking crash courses can personally guide you. As expert teachers they can provide you the right guidance. Further, you would have regular tests and proper assignments to practice.
