Q:   How to solve paper and OMR answer sheet quickly of NEET? How to score more than 680 marks?

A:

To solve the NEET paper and OMR answer sheet quickly and score above 680 marks, follow these tips:

  1. Familiarise Yourself with the OMR Sheet: Understand the format and structure of the OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) answer sheet. Know how to correctly fill in the details such as your roll number, test booklet code, and question number. 
  2. Time Management: Develop effective time management skills. During the exam, read the questions carefully, and if a particular question seems time-consuming, move on to the next one. Answer the easier questions first to maximise your attempt count. 
  3. Practice with Mock Tests: Regularly practice solving mock tests and previous years' question papers under timed conditions. This will help you improve your speed and accuracy, get accustomed to the exam format, and understand which areas require more focus.
  4. Learn to Skip and Come Back: If you encounter a challenging question, avoid getting stuck on it for too long. Skip it and move on to the next one. You can always come back to it later if you have time remaining. This strategy ensures that you attempt as many questions as possible.
  5. Elimination Technique: Use the elimination method to rule out incorrect answer choices. Narrow down the options by eliminating the ones that are obviously wrong. This strategy increases your chances of selecting the correct answer, even if you are unsure.
  6. Focus on Conceptual Understanding: Instead of rote memorisation, focus on understanding the concepts and principles behind the topics. This will help you apply your knowledge to a wide range of questions and solve them efficiently.
  7. Improve Speed and Accuracy: Enhance your speed and accuracy through regular practice. Solve questions from different sources, and gradually increase your pace while maintaining accuracy. Time yourself during practice sessions to track your progress.
  8. Revise Important Topics: Identify the high-yielding topics that carry more weightage in the NEET exam. Allocate more time to revise and practice questions related to these topics. Strengthening your grasp on these areas will boost your overall score.
  9. Maintain Composure: Stay calm and composed during the exam. Nervousness can lead to careless mistakes. Take deep breaths, manage your time wisely, and focus on one question at a time.
  10. Analyse and Learn from Mistakes: After attempting mock tests or practice papers, analyse your performance. Identify the types of questions you consistently get wrong and the areas where you face difficulties. Work on strengthening those weak areas to minimise errors in the actual exam. Remember that achieving a high score requires consistent effort, dedicated practice, and a thorough understanding of the concepts. Stay focused, maintain a positive mindset, and believe in your abilities. Best of luck for your NEET exam!

Unfortunately, securing an MBBS seat through government colleges at a NEET score of -5 to 120 is highly improbable. Government colleges prioritize NEET scores for admissions, and even with an SC reservation, the competition is fierce.
