NEET 2021 would be carried in eight regional languages as well as in English, Hindi, and Urdu across the country. Students who wish to write the exam in a local language need to ensure that the examination centre is in the same state. For example, candidates would be able to choose Tamil only if their examination centre is in Tamil Nadu. Candidates opting for regional languages would be given Bilingual Test Booklet i.e., in the selected language and English.
NEET 2021 will be again very important in nature as this year also the exams of AIIMS & JIPMER will not take place and the admissions in these will also be taken via NEET 2021. So, there is lot of excitement among the students as they have to give only one exam instead of three exams. A total of 15,93,452 lakh candidates have applied for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) UG 2020. In the year 2019, for the first time, over 15 lakh candidates had registered for the exam.
The number was expected to shoot up this year because, the medical entrance exam – NEET has been made mandatory for admission to AIIMS and JIPMER. The website this year also witnessed a very heavy rush. A slight 4.87 per cent rise has been witnessed in the number of candidates registered this year, increasing the 2019 tally by 74,083 candidates.
NEET includes three sections in the exam – Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. It is essential to understand the way the marks are divided. Out of 180 questions, 90 are from Biology, and 45 are from Physics and Chemistry each. Remember, every correct answer would help you score four marks, and for every incorrect answer, you lose one mark. There is no penalty if a question is not attempted. Start with NCERT books, write down all the essential formulas and notes. Focus on subjects, which need more time and attention.
An advice to the students is to break the preparation in two phases now. One is from now onwards till start of board exams & second after end of board exams to NEET exam. In the first phase we would suggest you to only study & revise class 12th chapters & topics. Please also ensure that you religiously read NCERT books especially in chemistry Zoology & Botany which will give you dual benefit. In this phase students should attempt one mock test weekly and one test daily before 10 days to NEET. If they are exhausted will mock tests, then can attempt previous year NEET papers. Please also note that while doing these tests time duration is a must factor.
In the second phase which is after boards till NEET students should devote up to 12hrs per day in studying only. They should exhaustively revise class 11th & 12th Syllabus give one test daily on the time of actual exam so that their body clock can be tuned as per the actual exam.
The important topics and chapters which students should focus more are as follows.
Physics: Modern Physics & Semiconductor devices, Magnetism & matter, Current electricity, newton laws System of particles & rotation motion.
Chemistry: Chemical bonding & molecular structure, s & P block elements, Equilibrium, Chemical Kinetics, d & f block elements.
Biology: biological classification, plant kingdom, animal kingdom, cell, human health & disease, ecosystem, principle of inheritance & variation, Human reproduction.
