Every competitor works really hard to get desired seat in a government college but nowadays only hard work does not help you in clearing the exam, you need to work smart as well in order to get what you really desire.
To memorize each and every topic is not possible, thus smart work along with hard work and sincere dedication is the best strategy to clear any exam.
For this, one needs to prioritize the topics depending on their weight-age in the examination. According to our alumni who cracked NEET MDS this year, if one prepares for about 8 to 9 months religiously, he/she will surely crack this exam.Aspirants should divide and devote time to every topic according to the weightage of the subject. To prepare for any vast subject, one or two week time is more than enough and short subjects can be prepared within 3 to 4 days. Whole syllabus should be covered properly within first 5 to 6 months followed by rigorous revision and practice for next 3 months.
Following are the important points that one should keep in mind while preparing for NEET MDS:
1. Prioritizing the topics:

Incase you don’t have a habit of making notes and highlighting important points, you should start it now.
3. Making the right selection of Books for NEET MDS
One should not run after collecting lots of books for every subject rather prepare each subject from one but the best book available.

5. Practice online mock tests

and the software being used. This may result in slowing down their speed and due to which candidate may not be able to attempt too many questions.

You should spare some time daily for revision of the topic prepared that same day. This will help you to have a clear understanding of the topic.
After every fortnight, one must revise the syllabus covered in last two weeks.
After going through the entire syllabus to be covered, last 3 months should be reserved only for revision. Benefit of this revision is that it refreshes the topics. If you keep revising again and again, this will help you retain and save these topics in your memory for a very long time.
