Carry out the exhaustive study on the remaining four days every week. Go through the month-wise weekly study plan below. The topics from either XI or XII class are marked explicitly.

Practice and Revision

Your preparation would not be as useful if you do not practice it regularly. Once your theoretical concepts are clear, you must practice as much questions as possible from each of the chapters to be perfect.

You should go through the NEET papers of the previous years and sample papers. It is good to follow multiple books for covering as much problems as you can, but you should also avoid the reference of too much books.

Well to conclude, you must be on your toes right from now for preparation of the NEET 2018 exam. But you also should not study for more than three hours at a stretch.

It is suggested that apart from following the tips mentioned above for preparation of the NEET exam, you must also give little time to relax your mind through any mode that entertains you. These may include listening to music and talking to your friends. But at the same time, do not overconsume your time. All the best!
