NEET 2022 will is tentatively scheduled to be held in August. This article aims to help the candidates who cannot enrol into a coaching institute and want to prepare for NEET 2022 at home.

It is not possible for all the students who aspire to crack NEET 2022 to get admission to a good coaching institute, or to enrol in one at all! The constraints can be anything such as distance, time or availability of a coaching institute nearby. For those who are in a similar situation and are looking for guidance, this article on 'How to prepare for NEET 2022 at home' is for them.
Firstly, students should stop believing that coaching classes are the only way to succeed in NEET 2022 because that's not true. Self-study is an essential part of the preparation phase. No coaching institute can help students if they do not study on their own. A coaching institute can help only with problem-solving and mock tests. So, they should stop thinking that it cannot be done without coaching and focus on how to prepare for NEET 2022 at home! Candidates must read the complete article to know tried and tested preparation tips and tricks.

How to prepare for NEET 2022 at home?

To be successful in the NEET exam, one has to follow certain preparation tips and strategies. In this section, we have shared such strategies for all those who want to prepare for NEET 2022 at home:

1. Note the exam date:

This is the first thing that every aspirant has to know while preparing a plan. It includes related events before or after the exam date. This will help the candidate design a suitable timetable for NEET 2022. The National Testing Agency (NTA) is yet to announce the NEET 2022 exam date. It is expected that the exam will be conducted in the first week of August. Hence, it can be estimated that approximately eight to nine months are left for the preparation and candidates have to plan their strategy accordingly.

2. NEET Syllabus:

One has to be well-versed with the NEET syllabus, which is quite extensive. It covers topics and concepts from PhysicsChemistry and Biology. Out of the 180 questions, 50 per cent are from biology and the rest are from Physics and Chemistry. The preparation will start with identifying the topics that need more focus while preparing for NEET 2022. For this, students should start with a comparison of the syllabus of Class 11 and Class 12 with that of the NEET. Club the common topics together and separate the uncommon ones, so that you can allot your time accordingly. This total syllabus will form the basis of all your preparation, so you need to divide your time for each of the topics. Make sure to allow sufficient time for practising as well as a revision, to reap the benefits of your efforts.

3. Knowing the NEET exam pattern:

This is the key to studying efficiently as you will be able to comprehend the expected question types, scheme of marking, as well as exam duration, which is extremely important to attempt maximum questions. Time management skills and practice will play a vital role during the exam. The NEET exam pattern changed in 2021 and it is expected that the same pattern will be followed in 2022 as well.

4. Designing an effective timetable:

This is the point in your preparation that is the differentiating factor among canidates. A well designed timetable enables time management in the best way possible. Here are a few NEET preparation tips to remember while designing the timetable:

  • School hours have to be considered in the timetable so that the student can find the actual duration which is left to study for the NEET exam.

  • They should make sure to include enough time every day for revision and practice the topics which have been already covered. Practising is quite essential as this helps a student in solving the questions in less time. Trying to complete mock tests in 2.5 hours instead of three hours is something that everyone must try for. This will prevent the candidate from facing a time crunch during the exam.

  • A specific time period for leisure activities has to be set so as to avoid feeling overburdened with studies. Avoiding leisure time is known to reduce the efficiency of the brain.

  • The timetable should be prepared in such a way that the maximum questions of difficult topics can be practised for ensuring a better grip on the tough part.

5. Categorise all topics into easy, moderately tough and difficult:

This helps a student in assigning time for each topic accordingly and thus avoid wasting any time. It is bound to maximise performance. The best way to deal with lengthy topics is to break them into subtopics so as to handle them easily. One can set study goals on a daily, weekly or monthly basis for accomplishing the task in a disciplined manner.

6. Finding the best materials to study:

This is another most important preparation tip for NEET 2022. One should know that most of the questions in this entrance are from NCERT books. Therefore, students should make sure to focus on them before switching to other NEET preparation books. Teachers, as well as online websites, can also be helpful in this. One can get the tricks and tips from the toppers in the NEET exams to use them in their approach during preparation.

7. Tracking the progress:

NEET aspirants have to ensure that their performance is always better than the previous day. It can be gauged by measuring the time taken to solve a problem. This is a confidence booster and motivates the student to attempt more questions with a decreasing number of mistakes.

8. A healthy body, the most essential factor for succeeding:

Everyone has to work hard in order to emerge with flying colours but this doesn't mean that they should stress them out to the extent that their health deteriorates. For this, sufficient rest, good food and leisure time are needed every day. It will ensure a healthy body and a motivated mind that is quite necessary for making a person successful.

It's great connecting with you. If you entered the details in the Application form wrong and missed correcting them. In that case, unfortunately, nothing can be done because NTA doesn't make changes to your application form on your behalf nor does it entertain any changes to the application form once the correction window has been closed.

Well, there is a very less chance but you can still try your luck. Don't be demotivated, you have secured a very good rank and you will definitely be able to get a seat in medical college next year if not this year.
