During preparation, he aimed for regular study and clearance of concept. From very first day, he used to revise the concepts which were taught in classroom. He believed that there should not be any confusion and concepts should be crystal clear. “I used to solve all the problems without delay. I never used to procrastinate. I used to solve the problems in the package as soon as the concept was taught in the class,” he said.

Strategy to tackle weak areas

The topper revealed that he used to be bogged down when he had low score in the test during the last leg of the preparation. Many negative thoughts used to plague his mind like I should score perfect 720 and so. But seniors, teachers and experts guided him to face the situation and he realised that learning is a continuous process and one becomes perfect by learning from his mistakes. One should introspect the mistakes and work on them. The important fact is not to repeat the same mistake. Gangule says the tests are not to check your performance. It gives one an opportunity to evaluate and tells what more needs to be done to improve score in weak areas.

Tips for NEET Aspirants

First and foremost things is not to get discouraged by low sore or errors in the test. Take it to your stride. Everyone makes error but one should learn from it. Second things is one should always be confident about his/her preparation as NEET exam test both knowledge and your mental stability. As NEET is a vast exam, candidates should know how much they should learn and what they should learn. They should have clear cut idea what is relevant and what is not as syllabus is vast and everything can’t be covered completely.

India's medical colleges have intense competition for admission, and each year's cutoff scores can change based on the exam's difficulty and the volume of applications.
