Read this article till the end to know everything about NEET. NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is an entrance examination that has to be given by those students who wish to get a seat for MBBS, BDS Unani, Siddha, etc. Even if you want to pursue these courses in a foreign country, you have to give NEET examination, which will have questions from physics chemistry, botany, and zoology.
Number Of Questions In NEET Exam & Time Management:
From each of these subjects, you will have 45 questions. You have a total of 180 questions in three hours. What are three hours: 180 minutes, so 180 Questions in 180 minutes means you have got an average of one minute to crack one question.
All questions are going to be multiple choice questions wherein you have four options for each question. If you get the answer correctly, you will get four marks, and if you mess it up, you will lose one.
NEET Exam Languages:
Many people have one doubt: Do you know that you can write the NEET exam in 13 different languages? Yes, you can write it in 13 languages. But if you are a person who is giving the examination probably in Delhi, you will not be able to give the examination in the language of Tamil. So, you have to check, but you still have an option of 13 languages to choose from.
NEET Exam Conditions:
Usually, the notification for NEET comes in December and you will get somewhere around say one to one & a half months for filling in the application. The application fee for the general category is 1500 rupees. If you belong to OBC NCL (Non-Creamy Layer) or EWS, which is the economically weaker section, you will have to pay 1400 rupees as the examination fee. And for SC/ST and transgender categories, you will have to pay 800 rupees examination fee. If everything goes well, the examination of NEET happens in the month of May. But this year, because of Corona, everything got changed. But normally it happens in the month of May.
NEET Exam Preparation Time:
You will have seen a lot of people starting their preparations for entrance examinations like NEET & IIT JEE from classes seven and eight. But I would say that is the time where you have to solidify your basic science concepts. You need not go for entrance coaching at such a young age. But at least from grade 11, you have to start your preparations for this entrance examination. And it has to go in parallel with your school studies.
After your grade 12, you will get almost one month for preparing for the NEET exam because your exams will get over somewhere in the month of March. And normally the NEET examination happens in the month of May. But if you think that I’m going to prepare for the entire NEET examination in that one month, believe me, that’s not gonna work. Okay. So please make sure your entrance preparation and your school studies go thoroughly. And you can even think like this. Okay, I’ll finish my public examination and then I’ll take a break for one year and then prepare for your entrance. There are so many people who do like that so you can even think about it, but it’s not mandatory, you can even do it parallelly.
NEET Exam Competition Level:
I also want you to understand about the competition before you step in every year. Almost 15 lakh children write this entrance examination. Do you know the number of seats for MBBS in India? It is somewhere around say 79,000 seats, including the government Medical Colleges, private medical colleges, the AIIMS, JIPMER, and AFMC. So 15 lakh children write this examination to get one of these seats. So the competition is definitely high. But if you can prepare well, you can crack it. That’s it!
Is It Possible To Crack NEET Without Coaching?
“I belong to a very poor background. My papa mama does not have enough money to send me for entrance coaching. Will I be able to crack the NEET exam and become a doctor?” This is a common doubt among NEET candidates. Your socio-economic background is not going to affect you in becoming a doctor. If you are a person who can really work hard, you can grab this examination. If you’re not able to go to an entrance coaching center, even then there are a lot of videos that are available on the internet.
But if you check the Internet only for Facebook and Instagram, then I can’t help. But if you can go to the internet and find these right videos and start your preparations along with grade 11, you can crack all these examinations even if you don’t have the money to pay to any entrance coaching center. Also, there are a lot of rank files available in the market. Find the right rank files, speak with your seniors who have cleared this examination, ask them how they have prepared & how they have practiced, ask them to suggest a few of the books or a few of the video series that they found helpful, and use all these things in your preparation. Never ever say that I belong to a poor background and so I cannot do this. You if you have a will. You can do this.
