Visual Charts for Your Memory: Another interesting way of preparing for an entrance exam is to revise notes prepared in the form of summary sheets, flow charts and formulae sheets among others. Visuals are easier to recall and therefore they can be a good source of learning/revision in your preparation plan.

Solving Previous Years’ Question Papers and Mock Tests: One of the biggest challenges you may face during the exam is time management. You must participate in a few mock test papers of NEET and previous year AIPMT papers. This will help you understand how you should manage your time in different sections of the paper. Not only this, an analysis of you mock test paper will help you identify and rectify your weaknesses.

Practise Repetitive Questions: When you sit down to solve the previous years’ question papers, you must identify the questions that have been repeated over the years and practise them frequently.

Identify the Best Ways to Study: The techniques you adopt to study for an exam plays a big role in your preparation. You can split larger chapters into smaller blocks in order to improve your preparation. This will not only help you concentrate for a longer time but will also help you take those much-needed breaks in between your preparation.
