Lakhs of students register for this exam, and a few seats are available, making it one of the most competitive exams in the country.

An exam of this significance demands a well-thought-out approach and proper execution from the candidates.

To pass the upcoming NEET exams with flying colours and secure a seat in their preferred college, candidates should pay heed and follow the tips and tricks provided below.

1. Know The Syllabus Well

The first step to grasping the huge syllabus of Physics, Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology is to go through it thoroughly. All the questions of the NEET exam are asked from the syllabus only, so you should be careful that you do not miss studying anything. You should focus on the important topics of each subject but should not leave any portion, as every mark counts. Each question carries four marks, and you cannot afford to miss that simply due to not studying.

2. Invest In Good Quality Study Materials

A wide variety of study materials for the NEET 2024 exam are available online and offline. You should choose only the right one by seeking guidance from the teachers or seniors who have already cracked the exam. The study material from ALLEN has worked out pretty well for a number of previous year toppers. Hence, you can refer to ALLEN’s well-organised and updated books, worksheets, mock test series, and other material. However, do not ignore the textbooks. Study the NCERTs religiously first, and then proceed to read the study materials to build a basic understanding of the topics.

3. Follow A Certain Strategy

You should follow the interviews of NEET toppers to know about their ways of preparation and try to incorporate that into their preparation style. There is no 'one size fits all’ kind of strategy for this exam. You have to try all the strategies that the toppers mention on your own and find out which one works the best for you. Moreover, you can discuss with the expert mentors and faculty at ALLEN to prepare a practical and comprehensive strategy for sure shot success.

4. Finish the Most Important Topics First

Always finish the most important topics first (as per the prioritised in the NEET exams), then proceed to the others. You can refer to the previous years’ questions to find out which chapters have more weightage than others.

The most important topics of the three subjects are as follows:-


  • Mechanics
  • Heat & Thermodynamics
  • Waves
  • Magnetism
  • Modern Physics
  • Electricity
  • Optics


  • Equilibrium
  • Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure
  • Electrochemistry
  • Chemical Kinetics
  • Coordination Compounds
  • Aldehydes, Ketones, and Carboxylic Acids
  • S, P, D, and F Block Elements
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Atomic structure


  • Animal Husbandry
  • Evolution
  • Animal Diversity
  • Human Health and Diseases
  • Human Reproduction

  • Biotechnology
  • Structural organisation in animals
  • Animal kingdom
  • Biomolecules
  • Plant physiology
  • Cell & Cell Cycle
  • Genetics
  • Ecology
  • Diversity of Living Organisms
  • Human Physiology

5. Stick To A Timetable

Many candidates create an unrealistic timetable that doesn't allow for proper sleep and exercise in order to finish the syllabus quickly. This actually proves to be a blunder while preparing for NEET 2024.

They cannot keep with such a timetable for long and end up being demotivated and wasting their time. To make a viable timetable, calculate approximately how many days are left before the exam. Then figure out how many hours you should study a day to cover the syllabus within the stipulated time. Make sure you keep at least a month for revision. Do not study anything new at this time.

6. Create Notes

No matter how good the study materials are, you should try to make your own notes after reading the study materials. It will help you to understand the concepts thoroughly and memorise them better. Make a habit of taking notes while studying and revising them later. Talking of revision, it is also the key to boosting your NEET score.

7. Revise In A Scientific Way

You should follow some revision techniques that are scientifically proven to boost memory. A new concept should be revised for the first time within 24 hours of learning it. Then, revise it after 3, 5, 7, and 14 days. Make sure you grasp the formulas, diagrams, reactions, equations, mechanisms, charts, graphs, etc. The important chapters should be revised the most.

8. Take Breaks Regularly

Studying at a stretch for a more extended period of time affects concentration. It makes the brain stressed and reduces its functions. For the brain to function properly, you need to take breaks regularly. After studying for every 2 hours, take a 10-minute break. You can go for a walk, chat with your friends, take a nap, or do anything you like in this stipulated time. You will feel much refreshed when you return to study after this break.

9. Practice Mock Tests

Candidates are required to answer 180 questions out of 200 questions in 200 minutes, i.e. they will get around 1 minute to answer each question that carries 4 marks. It makes time management the essential quality to crack NEET. You should give mock tests regularly within the stipulated time frame to acquire the speed needed for the exam. Solving previous years' question papers is important too, as it will give you a clear idea about the exam pattern.

Now that the exam pattern is also essential, here is a glance at the NEET 2024 exam pattern for your reference.

  • The NEET 2024 exam has four sections, namely Botany, Physics, Chemistry, and Zoology.
  • Every section carries 180 marks and 45 questions (35 for Section A and 15 for Section B). Candidates have to attempt only 45 questions where they need to only do 10 questions out of 15 questions of Section B.
  • All the questions carry 4 marks, and 1 mark is deducted for a wrong answer.
  • The total marks for the NEET 2024 exam are 720, and candidates get 200 minutes.

10. Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

Maintaining a good lifestyle is a crucial tip for success in exams, yet most students tend to ignore it. You should follow a healthy lifestyle that includes enough sleep, balanced food, and exercise to retain what you have studied for a long. Keep in mind that all your efforts will go in vain if you fall sick before the exam.
