It is that time of the year again where students are preparing to take up competitive exams.
For those students who are eyeing a career in medicine, NEET is your first milestone.
Until some time ago, students had to appear at multiple medical entrance tests to apply for their desired medical colleges based on cut-off. One was allotted a seat accordingly. Now, with NEET, curtains have been drawn over it. NEET, now stands are the single-level, national entrance test for any medical enthusiast in the country.
If you are already here, it indicates that you are either taking up NEET or are looking forward to taking it up in the near future. That being said, you must be aware of the fact that NEET is a 3-hour long test, conducted for 180 questions based on subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Thus, at this stage, one must be pondering over questions like “How to manage time effectively in NEET?” or “How do I speed up my revision process” and such related questions.
It is not sufficient for one to merely revise from your study material or master all concepts. Without mastering the knack of effectively managing time, one cannot crack NEET. If not, it actually leaves your preparation in ruins.
Here, we bring to you some points to effectively manage time for you to ace NEET.
Effective Time Management In NEET – How Does It Help?
Drives away last-minute worries
With effective management of time, one is sure to be away from unwanted stress. The one or two-year-long preparation can go for a toss if stress kicks in. With a proper schedule in place and with consistency, one inherently starts feeling confident enough and is less likely to feel stressed about the upcoming tests. Time management during preparation has a bigger role here. The sooner you infuse good time management tactics in your preparation, the better.
When management of time is put into play, the chances of accomplishing any aim is greater. Improper management of time can result in stress and also takes a toll on health thereby hindering your performance.
Leaves no room for stalling
The D-day is just around the corner and delaying is the last thing you want to indulge in. With operative and productive time management skills in practice, one can manage to extract the most from each day and in fact would have left one with some surplus time to be used productively.
Invest time in planning your schedule, allocate equal time to each subject as per your convenience and preference. Know the important chapters, rank accordingly and learn how much time you are able to take out each day for yourself for other activities. That is essential too.
Allows to set precedence
To be able to successfully crack NEET, one of the points to take into consideration is the prioritization of subjects and topics. If you think you need to devote more time to a particular subject, compared to others, you must consider it. Devote more time to subjects which requires more attention of yours. For instance, medical enthusiasts often feel Physics needs more attention as it involves computations and calculations, it requires students to apply theoretical knowledge acquired to solve problems. Hence, allotting more time to such topics becomes inevitable.
Likewise, some topics in a subject require much of your time, which could perhaps be a time-consuming but important concept often appearing in NEET question papers. Prioritize such topics. Follow question papers to understand the type of questions being asked on such topics and master it.
