Go The Extra Mile With Your Revisions
By now you would have got a clear understanding of concepts and hence conceptual clarity. But since the syllabus is vast covering syllabi of classes 11 & 12, it is recommended to go back to NCERT textbooks and go through every line carefully. There are chances you would have missed out on something important which could appear in the exams. You do not want to regret now with the supplementary time alloted for NEET 2020 aspirants.
Notes in Place
While following the first step, there are chances you missed out on topics, jot down these points. Prepare notes. Apart from this, it is important to make note of the important formulae, reactions, diagrams separately and call it your notes. Here you can highlight concepts, use mnemonics, map and interlink concepts simplifying your job furthermore so that just a few days, moments before your exams, you can simply skim through these solidifying your learning.
Tip: While making notes be sure of not replicating what is provided in textbooks/sources. Read and understand and write down in your own words.
Healthy Mind In A Healthy Body
While we often hear about the importance of having a sound mind, students often tend to ignore this aspect. Students are advised to include a few hours of relaxation in their daily plans. Mere studying without any breaks will drain you out and affect the mental health. Occasionally indulge in some form of activities, taking a walk, playing your favourite sport etc. This ensures the brain is relaxed and is rejuvenated to the next course of action.
Get Ready For The Big Day
Revise exhaustively, practice thoroughly from the previous years’ papers, sample papers, take up mock tests. Remember, consistency is the key. Practise on a daily basis, have your own strategies to tackle exams as per convenience and meet your daily goals. Keep going!
