Each question in NEET 2023 is for 4 marks and the total number of questions in the examination is 180. Thus to score 600 marks in NEET 2023, you need at least 150 correct answers. But, let’s not forget the negative marking. To compensate for the negative marking, you need five more correct answers. As per the new exam pattern, you will have to attempt 10 out of 15 questions from Section B. In case you attempt more than 10 questions, you will neither get extra marks nor will there be negative marking. But to manage time, you must select the questions for attempt carefully and judiciously.  So, how to get 155 correct answers in NEET 2023?

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 01: Start your preparation early

Rome was not built in one day

-John Heywood

The first tip is to start the preparation early. To score 600+ marks in NEET 2023, you need to be thorough with the syllabus. This is not something that can be achieved overnight. The best time to start preparing for NEET is Class 11. This will give you two years to prepare for this entrance test. You will also get ample time to prepare notes for revision. So, all those who started early have an advantage here.

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 02: Realistic goals

The next important tip is to have realistic goals. While preparing a timetable for NEET 2023, you need to keep in mind all the activities that you need to perform simultaneously. You cannot assign 12 hours to self-study if you spend 10 hours at school. Keeping your goals realistic will help you stay motivated and focused. Realistic targets will also help you stay positive.

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 03: Know the syllabus

NEET syllabus is very important. Before you start preparing for the examination, you must go through the syllabus of NEET 2023. Knowing the syllabus thoroughly will help you divide your time efficiently. Many assume that the syllabus of NEET and that of the board examinations is the same. But this is not true, they may be overlapping but the syllabus for NEET 2023 is more elaborate. If your aim is to get 87 per cent of the questions right, you cannot afford to miss important chapters while preparing. 

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 04: Identify weak spots

The next step is to identify the topics that are weak. Then prioritise these topics irrespective of their weightage. Dedicating more time to the topics that are weak will help you analyse the pitfalls. Work on these and you will not have any more weaknesses.

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 05: Mock tests

NEET mock tests and sample papers are available in abundance online. Solving mock tests and sample papers is essential if you want to clear NEET. But, to score 600+ marks in NEET 2022, you must master them. As they say, practice makes one perfect. Solve as many mock tests as you can. But, do not get disheartened if you are unable to score well in these. Try to find the key areas where you are losing marks. The aim is to minimise the negative marking. However, getting NEET mock test as per the latest pattern may be challenging. You may request your mentors to design the mock test paper as per the latest pattern, or you can modify the sections as per the new pattern and solve those accordingly. 

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 06: Be true to yourself

An unbiased analysis of your preparation will help you understand your weaknesses. You must, at any point, be true to yourself about your preparation. For instance, you read a chapter half-heartedly and don’t remember most of it. Be honest with yourself and don’t hesitate in accepting that this part was not up to the mark. Accepting this will help you understand the strength of your preparation.

600+ Marks in NEET Tip # 07: Be consistent

Consistency is what transforms an average into excellence

The last and most important tip of all is to be consistent. It is essential to stick to your timetable no matter what. You may reduce the number of hours that you spend on self-study for a day, but you must never skip it. Procrastinating will only add to the pile of things that you need to complete before the examination and will only add stress.

The dream of a 600+ score in NEET 2023 might keep you from attending a cousin's wedding or a friend’s birthday party. But remember that it is all going to be worth it in the end. Stay positive and keep walking towards your goal. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to do better and stay away from negative company.

JEE and NEET are both held on an annual basis, and with limited seats, passing these exams becomes more difficult for students. Furthermore, the number of seats in medical colleges is much lower than in engineering colleges. Due to the lesser number of seats available in medical colleges and the high level of competition in NEET getting into a good medical college is challenging. As for difficulty level, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is slightly tougher than Joint Entrance Examination-Mains but easier than Joint Entrance Examination-Advanced, but that is subjective, as seats are comparatively limited in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, making it more competitive. Least Difficult: JEE Mains. Difficult: NEET. Most Difficulty: JEE Advanced. I hope this will help you.
