NEET UG 2024: Maintaining physical and mental well-being is also essential during the arduous NEET preparation journey. Allocate time for daily exercise and meditation, adopt an upright sitting posture during mock tests.

NTA has released National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Undergraduate) application forms this month. With just two months left before the exam, the students need a proper strategy to be able to secure a rank under the NEET top 100 list.

Before exploring subject-specific strategies, understanding the NEET structure is crucial. In NEET UG 2024, the total marks are 720, and the test duration is 200 minutes. Each subject comprises two sections: Section A with 35 questions and Section B with 15 questions, from which any 10 must be attempted. It is important to note that correct answers earn four marks, incorrect ones deduct 1 mark and unattempted questions have no impact.

NEET UG 2024: Biology

Start biology preparation with a meticulous reading and revision of the NCERT book. Aim to complete biology within 45-50 minutes during mock tests.

Recognise that seemingly simple topics like Human Reproduction and Biotechnology: Principles and Processes may yield perplexing questions. Molecular Basis of Inheritance and Principles of Inheritance and Variation necessitate multiple revisions for a comprehensive understanding.

Give special attention to chapters like Biotechnology: Principles and Processes, Principles of Inheritance and Variation, Molecular Basis of Inheritance, Biomolecules, Human Reproduction, Cell: The Unit of Life, Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants, Evolution, Animal Kingdom, and Morphology of Flowering Plants.

NEET UG: Chemistry

Initiate chemistry preparation with a thorough study of the NCERT book. Inorganic chemistry benefits from rote learning, emphasising the memorisation of formulas.

Focus on vital chapters such as thermodynamics, the p-block elements, equilibrium, electrochemistry, hydrocarbons, chemical bonding and molecular structure, alcohols, phenols, and ethers, coordination compounds, chemical kinetics, biomolecules, aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acids, and organic chemistry: basic principles and techniques.

NEET UG 2024: Physics

List physics topics based on their difficulty levels and prepare accordingly. Choose appropriate study materials, including NCERT, exemplars, and ‘Concepts of Physics’ by H. C. Verma (Vol. I & II). Avoid consulting multiple books for a single topic, relying on trusted sources only. Understanding fundamental ideas and concepts before delving into formulas is essential. 

Chapters like current electricity, semiconductor electronics: materials devices and simple circuits, ray optics and optical instruments, and system of particles and rotational motion demand more concentration than others.
