Effective Tips to Complete NEET MDS Syllabus in less than 4 Months
I. Devise a Game Plan
Owing to the scarcity of time, devising a sound game plan is of utmost importance.
Create an agenda for each study session and prepare a list of all the topics, chapters and concepts which you will be studying during each study session.
II. ‘Smart Work’ Instead of ‘Hard Work’
Owing to the scarcity of time for the NEET MDS exam, it’s the time for sound ‘SMART WORK’.
Analyse 5-6 previous year papers of AIPGDEE and prepare a list of all the important topics and high yielding topics.
Your major focus at this instant should be to prepare all the important topics at priority.
Leave the unimportant topics for the later stages.
III. Select the Right Study Environment
Select a study environment which is well-lit and free from distractions. Pick up an environment which offers comfort and is noise free.
IV. Take Notes
Try to take notes in the form of short and concise points. Take notes of the important concepts, formulas and shortcuts. Notes greatly facilitate fast revision and help in retaining the data for a longer period.
V. Use Different Techniques to Study
Studying by using a variety of different techniques greatly aids learning and at the same time helps to make studying interesting. Mnemonics Devices greatly aid in learning and retaining the complicated terms and therefore, must be used wherever needed.
Flashcards can also be used to write the most important terms. Create two separate piles – a ‘Done’ pile and a ‘Needs more work’ pile.
Flashcards are especially useful to learn the difficult keywords or the complex terms.
VI. Practice Side by Side with Study
In order to complete the vast syllabus in the restricted time, you must practice MCQs side by side while preparing a topic. This facilitates a better understanding of the concepts and also helps to learn the application of concepts.
Practicing side by side will greatly help in completing the voluminous syllabus in less than 4 months.
VII. Take Regular Breaks in between the Study Hours
Sitting in the same position for long hours can result in massive bouts of boredom. Taking small breaks regularly in between the study hours will help to boost your energy level and keep you vibrant and motivated for study.
Try to take energy-rich snacks and liquids in the breaks to push up your energy level and refresh your mind.
Take adequate rest and do recreational activities in the breaks to remain vibrant.
VIII. Evaluate Your Performance Side by Side/Attempt Mock Tests
To streamline your preparation for the NEET MDS exam and that too in restricted time, attempt topic-wise mock tests side by side in order to attain grip over each topic and subject-wise mock tests to master each subject.
Try to devote the last 1 month to attempting full-length mock tests. Take 2-3 mock tests each day during the last one month.
Review your performance after each mock test and identify your mistakes. Work on your weaknesses and try to reduce your mistakes with each attempt.
Also, work on your speed and accuracy by attempting speed tests.
