NEET 2017: Last 14 Days Preparation Strategy

NEET 2017 is scheduled on 7 May. Students who aspire to become doctors are already into the last phase of their preparation.The last stage of preparation is the crucial juncture and it can make or break your performance in the exam.  Below are the few suggested guidelines from my side for your help:

1. Previous year papers: Well instead of trying the available mock tests of famous institutes or books it is wise to practice the previous year papers of actual AIPMT/NEET. Just try to attempt last five years paper in real test environment. Even you needn't attempt all papers if you have time crunch.This will help you in getting a feel of the examination, what to expect, how much to attempt, how not to waste time.

2. Identifying Your Scoring Areas(Crack the Biology Part): After practicing these papers you should have an idea about which topics you can and should focus to score marks.
Frankly speaking you don't have much time now to build up confidence over a topic which you have hardly studied till now so smartness suggests that instead of working on your weaknesses it is more wiser to work on strengths. Remember there's no sectional cutoff .Most of the students try to focus too much on Physics since they find it the most tough. If you are not scoring more than 100 in mock tests in physics, its better to give more time to biology and chemistry. Scoring 300 in biology is far easier than scoring 120 in Physics for such students

3. Work on Speed and Accuracy: NEET requires you to answer 180 questions in 180 minutes. So unlike JEE speed here is far more important. Plus you get penalized for incorrect answers so speed with accuracy is utmost needed to crack this exam. So in these last days always keep a watch on the clock while practicing questions. Don't get stuck on a question, if you don't know or can't sove it in a minute, leave that and move on. There is no negative marking for leaving a question.

4. Positive Attitude and Self Belief: Irrespective of how much you have studied and prepared till now, you have to maintain a positive attitude because worrying too much about what you haven't done won't improve your performance. 
Mostly XII appearing students because of Board examinations feel themselves not connected with objective pattern and many negative thoughts starts creeping in. Avoid all such negative thoughts and just believe in yourself. Remember these magical words "I CAN AND I WILL".

ALL THE BEST!!

JEE MAIN 2017 ANALYSIS

JEE MAIN 2017 offline paper was overall a balanced paper and was easier than the previous year's paper. Hence we expect cutoff to be higher by about 10 marks than previous year.
Last year the cutoff for ADVANCED eligibility was:
GENERAL : 100 Marks
OBC: 70 Marks
SC: 52 Marks
ST; 48 Marks

PHYSICS ANALYSIS: The paper was easy as compared to last year's paper. Paper had many direct and very less calculative questions. two questions (doppler in light and X rays) were beyond the prescribed syllabus.


Analysis of Physics Section

Physics this year was not the toughest section of the paper. The paper was easy as compared to last year's paper. Paper had many direct and very less calculative questions. two questions (doppler in light and X rays) were beyond the prescribed syllabus.So I feel a score of 80+ is a good score.

Analysis of Chemistry Section

The Physical Chemistry part was easier while the Organic part was much higher than the NCERT level.The questions from inorganic part were very few
.A score of 80+ is a good score.

Analysis of Mathematics Section

The paper was overall balanced and might be termed as the toughest section this year.Calculaus part was easy while the geometry questions involved lengthy calculations.  A score of 70+ is a good score.
