Preparation Tips for NEET MDS 2023
  • At this point, panicking isn't going to help. It is preferable to concentrate your efforts on developing and sticking to a realistic plan. Because the syllabus is so large, it's best to prioritize each subject's chapters based on the weighting and frequency of questions in past test papers. It's preferable to divide your subjects into four groups and prepare for each one separately. You can only take one combination test at a time.
  • Every week, you can take two great tests by merging two sets to cover 8-9 subjects at once. The tests can be obtained from any coaching class or online platform of your choosing.
  • Taking two weekly tests will help you identify your weak spots so you can work on them. Regularly taking examinations will help you overcome your fear and gain confidence.
  • You'll need a combination of speed and accuracy to obtain the best grades. You should aim to complete 50-60 MCQs per day. These questions are available in any app.
  • You can reduce errors by sharpening your knowledge of existing topics. Starting new topics at this point could squander time and leave you unprepared, leading to mistakes and a loss of marks.
  • Your own notes, which you made while researching a topic, are the most significant weapons in your armory. You can speed up the process by reviewing the notes during this time. If you don't already have your own notes, you should start making them right away for the most crucial topics.
