Read her narrative word to word to find out what advice she has to give to all the NEET aspirants out there.


  “Everyone dreams of becoming someone when they grow up. A lot of  us dream of pusuing a career in medicine. To say the least, it is a noble and a demanding profession. Your top priority becomes serving others. It gives a lot of satisfaction when you treat someone and bring a smile to their faces.

But to decome a doctor in India, you usually dedicate a part of your life to crack an entrance examination to get a good government college and then 5 yrs of training.One should take decision very wisely before getting into this field, keeping in mind you have to be under AIR 5000 among 15 lac candidates to get a good government college or be ready to pay a high amount of capitation fee to private medical colleges.

Everyone knows about the eligibility criterias, no. of seats, other examination details. Here, i want to focus more on ‘ how to crack NEET ‘.

There are two ways to prepare for NEET. Either you start preparing from 11th standard or after completing your schooling.Some students clear NEET in their first attempt and some may take years. Its not that tough if you know the ‘DO’s and DONT’ S while preparing.’ It is the appropriate time to start your preparation for NEET, an entrance exam to get into a prestigious medical college.

So, let us see some tips to know better how to startand from where to start.

  • You must focus on biology as it covers 50% of the question paper.
  • You should thoroughly read NCERT as 90% of the questions are from NCERT. NCERT is the text book for NEET. You should not miss even a word or diagram of it.
  • You have to practice a lot of MCQ s on a everyday basis and should try to complete 90 questions in 45 minutes.
  • Chemistry is a scoring subject and less time consuming as compared to physics.
  • In chemistry we have 3 sections and generally have equal weightage of 15 questions each out of 45 questions in chemistry.

(1) Organic chemistry – This section is full of reactions and
mechanisms. You can refer to NCERT for organic. It’s sufficient.

(2) Inorganic chemistry – Again for inorganic you can refer to
NCERT. This is the most scoring part as it is memory based and can
be done in less time.

(3) Physical Chemistry – For physical chemistry apart from NCERT
you need to do extra efforts in solving a lot of numericals.


  • This is the part of paper that requires extra time and effort.
  • For physics you can’t depend on NCERT. You need to practice a lot of questions from books like Cengage and H.C. Verma. Not all questions are lengthy numericals, some are conceptual and can be done in couple of seconds. So its important to have an overall picture.”
