With NEET happening twice a year now, it’s important to change the strategy and plan for it. Most students take 9-12months to prepare for the NEET exam. However, a planned way of study can get it done in 8months. In just about 8 months preparation you can score the maximum in NEET.
The Eight Month Study Plan

You can get ask relevant doubts when you meet your Class 11 teachers, can get your doubts clear and use the tests and exams to strengthen your skills.
- Next 4 months (October – January): This period will be a stressful one. During this time, complete your Class 12 syllabus while constantly revising your Class 11 syllabus. Ensure that you spend time revising old concepts so that you don’t forget them while studying new ones. You should try to finish this in four months. To make things easier, you can take topic wise tests on your Class 11 portion to see how much you have remembered.
- Last 3 months (February – April): This is the home-run. Now you’re done studying the entire portion. The first one and a half months, you should spend giving subject-wise mock tests. Find out which areas are weak and revise those chapters. Practice tougher problems and learn how NEET questions can be twisted to trick you. Understand where can you save time and where should you spend that extra minute. If you’re confident, you can also attempt a few mock tests.
