- Students should prepare a weekly study plan, and assign some chapters to study every week so that you are able to complete your syllabus in time. Also, along with covering theory, keep practicing questions. NEET-UG will have multiple choice questions (MCQ). And practicing MCQ type questions are necessary.
3. Know the NEET UG syllabus:

- If you do not have enough time, pick a chapter that you are comfortable with, have not practiced enough and that is an important chapter. Any day give priority to important chapters if you have not revised them or not practiced enough questions on them. If exams are just approaching, leave out any new chapters because it will create a lot of stress and anyway you cannot master it enough for the exam.
6. Last but not Least:
- Attempt questions carefully as there is negative marking system. Remember that its chapters with high weightage that you should prepare and finish first. This will not only complete your preparation to a great extent, but also give you much needed confidence to boost your morale.
