Preparation Tips NEET 2022 

  • Study Biology and another subject simultaneously in the beginning. Cover the strongest topics with the highest weightage first, this way you can cover more topics in less time.
  • Read the chapters in your NCERT textbook. Highlight any important passages and make notes at the same time. After studying NCERT, start reading extra study materials available from other books and  websites. Write down any important points you may find in your notebook.
  • In Biology, it is important to memorize diagrams to understand the concept.  Pictures can play a big part in helping you to remember the information. Diagrams are an important factor for NEET preparation.
  • As for physics, solve as many sample questions as you can. Then, create a formula sheet that includes all the formulas and laws from the chapter.
  • To help yourself with chemistry, draw all the formulas and equations for each chapter and try to memorize them. Then, after every chapter is completed, use these sheets as a reference when solving questions on chemical equations and formulas.
