Neglecting Biology NCERT textbook

These mock tests and practice papers are really crucial to help you understand the importance of time management along with highlighting your weak points and boosting your confidence.

Avoiding these common mistakes can help you come out with flying colours. NEET tests your ability and not just your memory to cram the concepts. Good Luck!
