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.
It is crucial to set up a daily timetable and follow it religiously. Give more time to the subjects you are weaker in and try to take the help of your teachers and friends to understand the topic.
