Once you are well aware of what to study and pay attention on more, you can look at some tricks to save time and focus well on scoring good marks –
- Speed is extremely crucial here. You will be attempting 180 questions in 180 minutes, that’s 1 question per mintute. Even mock papers follow this system
- Do not spend more than 2 minutes on a question, however tempting it might look like to answer it. Remember, physics takes up maximum time even in mock exam online
- Another important thing to remember is that your NCERT textbooks are very crucial. Although previous years’ papers and mock papers do help, but they need to go hand in hand with NCERT books. All questions in national level exams are from it.
- The format of questions remains the same each consecutive year. Combine previous year papers with online mock test for a smarter preparation
- Before NEET was AIPMT exam. Use the previous papers from that online mock test as they are not useless
- Take online mock test between 10 am to 1 pm. This will help you get used to the atmosphere of the actual NEET exam
