And, joining a reputed coaching institute like PrepMed can help you with the right mentorship. After all, no NEET UG aspirants would prefer losing their rank because of minor mistakes.
This blog discusses some of the most common mistakes every NEET UG aspirant must avoid. Explore more below.
Must-Avoid Mistakes For NEET Exam Preparation
Avoiding NCERT Books:
Yes! You may feel like why you need to study NCERT books when you are being provided with high-quality study materials from the coaching institutes. However, it must not be so. We always recommend involving NCERT books while preparing for NEET Foundation 2024-26. You must not be completely dependent upon reference books or other study materials. NCERT books hold equal importance and play an important role in your NEET UG preparation.
Prioritizing Just One Subject:
Students need to understand that focusing on just one particular subject won’t make them rank holders. There may be various reasons for students following this approach and one of those is because they don’t prefer other subjects as well. However, achieving success in NEET with a higher ranking will require you to pay equal attention to all three subjects – Physics, Chemistry & Biology.
And remember one important thing, “You cannot be successful if you run away from your weakness.” This is why work on improving your weak areas to improve your chances of cracking NEET UG on the first attempt and getting a higher rank. PrepMed® offline coaching for NEET 2025-26 (& subsequent years as well) in Kolkata can help you with the topics or subjects you are weak at.
Procrastination and Inconsistency:
You might be excellent academically but you need to focus on the right thing at the right time. NEET UG is a highly competitive medical entrance exam and this is why just only hundred students out of lakhs crack this exam. So you cannot afford a delay in covering topics or inconsistency in study. You must put in consistent efforts to stay ahead of the competition.
Not Choosing a Good Mentor For NEET UG Courses:
Your selection with respect to your mentors undoubtedly plays a crucial role in your preparation for NEET Foundation 2024-26. PrepMed’s qualified and experienced doctors can help you become a doctor. You can trust our skilled faculty to help you in achieving success at the first step of your medical career. It’s normal to feel less confident and lose your interest when you face hardships in understanding any topic or subject. But this can be handled well with the right mentors by your side.
Not Practicing Previous Year’s Question Papers:
Studying hard is definitely important but many students forget about the importance of practicing previous year’s question(PYQs)papers. And, set a timer when you solve those question papers. This will help you understand how much time you take to solve each question and where you need to improve. This helps students overcome the anxiety that a lot of them have when they sit for the NEET UG examination. Nervousness and anxiety about performance can impact your performance during exams. So, avoid this mistake of not practicing question papers.
We all have been told since childhood to revise all that we have read and studied. And, this needs to be followed in the same manner for NEET UG courses. Revise regularly the topics you study as this will help you retain all the topics rather than forgetting all that you learned.
Diverting Attention To Unnecessary Activities:
Nowadays most people, irrespective of age group, are addicted to social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram. They can tempt anyone so how can students be left? Most students try to focus efficiently but find it difficult to do so. A good mentor can help you with the right advice to not let you distract yourself with these things and stay focused.
“You are what you think.” It may sound just like a motivational quote but it is actually true. Some students get severely demotivated while preparing for the NEET Foundation 2024-26. There are countless reasons for a NEET aspirant to have negative thinking such as not being able to cope with the syllabus, difficulty in understanding a topic, or any other related reasons. But, students must be dedicated to overcoming them all rather than quitting on their dreams of becoming a doctor. Join a reputed medical coaching institute like PrepMed® formed by team of Doctors to help you prepare well for the NEET UG exam and see yourself achieving heights.
