How to bridge the gap between NEET & Boards Preparation?

Last Updated - March 03, 2017

It is that time of the year again when the academic world is smitten by the ‘NEET 2017’ phenomenon. With CBSE releasing the date sheet for board exams, one of the question that come to mind is- How to prepare for boards as well as NEET side by side? If you feel that the board exams are being a hindrance to your NEET prep, you couldn’t be more wrong. Done correctly, your preparations for the boards will greatly enhance your chances of cracking NEET.

The secret strategy is, ironically, not that big of a secret. All you have to do is study NCERT thoroughly. Remember each and every topic from NCERT, make notes on it, practice all the questions, revise and re- revise everything. This will not only help you in achieving good marks in boards but will also prepare the base for your NEET Preparation.

NEET syllabus is as vast as an ocean, and you need to know the exact location to fish the best output. Cut down on extra information and focus on important topics. Since we know NEET exam covers NCERT syllabus as well, you can compare the syllabus with your Board exam syllabus. It is beneficial for you if there are common chapters as you will not need to prepare them separately. This will give you ample time to concentrate on the parts of the syllabus that are not covered.

Important Focus Areas for NEET 2017 are:

Physics – Mechanics, Optics, Thermodynamics and Nuclear Physics

Chemistry – Mole Concept, General Organic Chemistry, Periodic Table, Chemical Bonding, Coordination Chemistry

Biology- Ecology and Environment, Genetics, Cell Biology; Morphology, Reproduction and Physiology of Plants and Animals; Basics of Biotechnology

At such a crucial time, time management is highly important. During these days student, should focus mainly on the preparation for board exams and devote an hour every day to study for NEET exam. During 1 month gap before NEET exam, when the boards are over, you should devise a study schedule focusing only on NEET exam.

How to sync your NEET Chemistry preparation with Boards Exam?

Chemistry is a scoring subject and students can obtain higher marks in this subject by putting in little hard work. Chemistry is a very important subject for both board exam and NEET exams. One can score 95+ marks in this subject in board exam by investing little bit of time. Nowadays different competitive exams are conducted within one month after the completion of class 12 board exam. If you have command over this subject, then you can really perform well in NEET Exam too.

Chemistry for class 12 is a feared subject that requires a lot of memory power and theoretical “mugging up” in order to score marks in the CBSE exams. Chemistry is sub-divided into Physical, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. On most occasions, at least 13 questions are asked from each sub unit. Too many direct questions are asked from Inorganic Chemistry and if you learn these chapters properly, can answer them easily. But, most students find it boring as it requires lots of memorizing work and hence ignore it completely.

Organic Chemistry is probably the easiest portion of chemistry in class 12. You can secure good marks in this with little efforts. Solve all problems of NCERT exercise to have command over this portion. Alcohols, Phenols and Ethers and Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids are the two most important chapters from Organic chemistry.

Inorganic Chemistry requires lots of learning. It is wise to prepare a note of Inorganic chemistry as in this you need to learn lots of chemical reactions, processes and preparation of different chemical compounds. Questions are directly asked from this portion. It is a very important portion of chemistry for engineering and medical exams too. So never underestimate Inorganic chemistry.

How to sync your NEET Physics Preparation with Board Exam?

Though only 45 questions of Physics are asked in NEET, but it plays vital role in determining the rank in the Merit List. It has been seen that students preparing for Medical are generally good in Biology and Chemistry. Most of them face problems in Physics which ultimately affects their rank. To a certain extent, poor Mathematics is also responsible for it. Hence, students must not ignore Physics if they want to crack NEET.

NCERT is the most valuable and important book, not only for the class 12 board exam, but also for the various competitive exams like JEE (Mains and Advanced), NEET, AIIMS, etc. Many students find Physics difficult to study through NCERT. In that scenario, you should take help of reference or side-books. But, always study only those topics, which are in NCERT. Reading extra stuffs will only kill your precious time.

How to sync your NEET Biology Preparation with Boards Exam?

Biology is the most important subject for NEET. It is due to the fact that out of 180 questions, 90 are asked from this subject. Poor performance in it can shatter your dreams of becoming a doctor. A student having good command over Biology can easily qualify in NEET. Though, Chemistry and Physics also play crucial role in determining rank in the Merit List.

How to prepare for NEET after Board Exam?

For preparing and clearing NEET exam, the applicants must start preparing while in standard 11th and clear all the basics. The aspirant should prepare a time table and study according to the schedule. The aspirants must focus equally on NEET. Aspirants must keep in mind that they must keep equal time for preparation of CBSE Class 12 and NEET exam. 
While during the board exams, you should revision according to class 12 board syllabus, after the exams are over start revision for the NEET exams. This may sound weird since the syllabus for NEET exam and board exam is almost same. But there's a catch. NEET is objective in nature and will require you to have every minor and major detail on your fingertips. This is why the revision method for board exams and NEET exam should be different. 
During the Board exams, practice sample papers meant solely for the board exams and mark questions which are one-word or short answer type. You can revise these questions later for NEET exam as well. After the board exams are over, try to solve at least one sample paper every day and increase the number to two in the fortnight leading up to the exam. This will help you in gearing up for the exam and perform to the best of your ability.
