When having a combined preparation time for school exams and competitive exams like JEE / NEET, it is important to remember that, school provides an important foundation when it comes to the overall experience of studying. The methods of preparation may vary, but ranking in school tests and getting a good JEE / NEET rank require the same focus and perseverance. And so starting early will really help to build your attention and focus, strengthen your understanding of the most basic concepts and help you work your way up to success.
Here are some ways that you can use to manage JEE / NEET preparation and school effectively:
Learn to form a good habit of scheduling and dividing your work properly. Everything seems to be overwhelming when it seen as that vast syllabus that one needs to cover. But broken down to bite size pieces, it is easy to handle. Sort out chapters based on their difficulty level, then give some more time to chapters / concepts that you find difficult to understand and need a bit more of your attention. Your time-table should be planned so well that it shows you how much time you allotted even to the menial tasks. In this way you can truly manage your time efficiently.
The goals and aims that you set for yourself shouldn’t seem a burden to you or scare you. They should be realistic and doable. You should not create such a tough time schedule for yourself, that you get disappointed with not being able to follow it at the end of the day. Set realistic goals, keep the time-table a tiny bit flexible to make a few changes and when you achieve the goals for the day, you’ll be ready to start the next day with a bit more motivation.
The time spent in school is very important. The concepts that you learn there will only help you further! The concepts that you find trivial are the ones that later come back and give you trouble because you hadn’t paid the necessary attention to it in school. Concentrating and learning certain concepts in school itself will save so much of your time later when you start the actual JEE / NEET preparation. You are strengthening your basics in school and this will be quite helpful later. This initial preparation in school is very valuable, not just for your school exams but for JEE / NEET too.
Sometimes we see a doubt as irrelevant to be cleared and move ahead in the chapter. But then with the competitive exam or any other exam question papers being so unpredictable, you never know what might be asked when. Make sure the doubts are cleared and that you understand the concepts well before moving ahead.
Don’t skip classes while you are trying to handle school and JEE / NEET preparations together. While you plan your study schedule, plan proactively. Because when you skip classes, the lapse caused will in turn add to study pressure. You wouldn’t be able to keep up with studies at school and this will be an added stress, which no one wants. Attend classes regularly and attentively and you will automatically find that balance in managing school and JEE / NEET.
Don’t make the mistake of taking school tests lightly. The concepts in the advance courses have their base in the topics and concepts that we study in school. Only after mastering those, we can move ahead. Studying in school is not just for attaining marks, but it is an important practice that every JEE / NEET aspirant should adopt to get a good grasp on the basics. During the school time is when students develop their competitive skills that you require for JEE / NEET preparation, through Olympiads and exams like NTSE.
The tests conducted in school are for a reason. It keeps you in that constant learning rhythm and develops your critical thinking skills. You learn the concepts with a nice gradual progress through all the school years. But imagine if you suddenly realized that there is a bunch of alien topics for you to cover up all of a sudden, just because you hadn’t paid the required attention in school for those topics. All this is sure to hamper your confidence and motivation. Hence, it is important to concentrate and do well in school tests as well.
We have a lot of distractions around us and these create obstacles in your path to success. It is important that you don’t stray away from your goal due to these distractions. The prime distraction of them all is the Social Media sites that are used for purposes other than just staying well informed citizens. No one’s saying to completely stop using these platforms but when having some free time from your already busy schedule, invest time into some relaxing activities, go for a walk, keep the mind calm and refresh your mind and body. Manage time diligently and efficiently.
Stressing will not take you anywhere. Juggling school and JEE / NEET classes together can be a bit tedious. But this doesn’t mean you don’t enjoy your school life. Participate in co-curricular activities, sports, singing, dancing. Enjoy that time in school along with your studies, customizing and making changes in your routine, to make it a fun learning process. Believe in your preparation and the efforts that you are putting into everything. The way may be rough and a bit frustrating at times, but remember that your hard work will surely pay off.
Learn to utilize time smartly. Like reading while you travel or playing games that challenge your mental abilities, to make learning fun. Understand the ways that are suitable for you and plan accordingly. Everyone’s methods differ. You need to identify the methods and tricks to studying and preparing based on your personal requirements. At the end of it all, put in your best efforts in whatever you are doing and that’ll help you overcome all the obstacles that come along with balancing JEE / NEET and school exams. Practice and revise regularly and this will surely bring you fruitful results.
Most important of all!
While following all of this, don’t forget to keep sufficient time aside for your sleep too. Try not to compromise on your sleep. A refreshed, well rested mind grasps knowledge much better than a tired, exhausted one.

A topic is not interesting enough or you find it difficult to understand by the manner in which it is presented. You’ll yawn and yawn while studying; thinking that washing your face might take away the drowsiness. But that’s not the solution to making you concentrate on the topic that is getting you bored. For many students, studies already seem like a difficult task and because the process of studying doesn’t seem interesting, it gets even more difficult to retain focus.
Try and learn a few different methods to studying different topics or subjects. The same old methods can’t be applicable to every topic or subject you are studying. The same technique you use to study Physics won’t be as useful while studying Biology. There are various techniques that you may try and test to cope with boredom. Here are a few tricks and tips:
The topic as a whole may seem daunting. Try to identify such concepts that can be simplified and understood better. Making it simpler will make learning more enjoyable.
Let your imagination loose while studying. Link concepts and topics to each other in ways you find simple and interesting. You find the textbook information boring to read at times? Find a different presentation of that same concept in the form of a video or documentary or web search some background information on that topic that will build up your interest. Boring is when the material is either lengthy or difficult to understand. So when the same information is processed creatively, it will make reading and understanding the boring material quick and easy.
Before you start to study, remind yourself of the purpose and objectives of you studying that information. It is important to know why you are reading something. The reason or purpose or outcome of you sitting down to study plays a very important role. You’ll automatically concentrate on the need to study that particular topic or concept. This is what will drive your focus and keep you motivated since you are being more efficient about the ‘which’ and ‘why’ of the information your mind is processing.
Simply reading the material in order to understand and thinking you’ll remember it well just by doing that, is not going to work. Indentify patterns within the information, which will make processing the information fun, quick and easy. As you go through similar topics / concepts, you can apply similar learning techniques that proved useful earlier. In this way you’ll form better associations between chapters / topics / concepts and learn faster.
Imagine just reading words after words for hours and hours. Reading this sentence itself may be boring! But visual cues help learners to know what to concentrate on. So you will be simultaneously listening, viewing a complex diagram and understanding the information without much effort. It has proven to be an efficient and fun way of learning. Instructional graphics like arrows, highlights, automatically grab your attention as compared to a simply printed text. Visual cues direct the eyes to the important message or information. It lessens distraction and improves retention of information.
Read an entire page but can’t remember what you read? That’s usually the case when not paying the required amount of attention. And this is an even bigger issue when the content is not that interesting or pretty lengthy. So this trick of read & recall can help you. Read a paragraph; make a quick note of what you just read and repeat this process. With this practice, you’ll form a habit of reading with the intention of understanding and remembering; and this will strengthen your recall.
Though you are just sitting to study, your mind and body need to stay energized. Staying focused means making your brain work hard and continuing such hard work without appropriate breaks will pressurize you and make you lose your focus. Use that break to do something fun and get your mind off studies for a while. See this break as a well deserved reward for your hardworking brain. So STUDY, RELAX AND REPEAT…
Reading doesn’t need to be boring. Turn studying into a fun experience. We know we need to learn and remember, but you need to know that there’s not just one way of doing that! You can comprehend and retain information even by converting texts into images, creating a mind map of information, making fun placards to go through every now and then as a fun game with a friend and so many more personalized ways can be invented! With this Learning will always be Fun! (and not some boring task)
So now you learnt some new ways to study. Imagine implementing those along with a friend. Now that sounds even better, doesn’t it? So you will not just have a companion to study along with, but a motivator who’ll make studying fun and create a positive environment to learn. This works both ways, since your friend will have you as that motivating person to help her or him too.
No matter how old you get, everyone loves a reward! It is always a great source of motivation. Set some goals and when you have met those goals for the day or at the end of the week, reward yourself. Attaining that reward at the end of your set goals will keep you going.
At the end of all of this, you’ll realize that curiosity, creativity and perseverance play a vital role. And with the right guidance, studying can be turned into an effortless process.

When one thinks about NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test), many students see it as being very competitive, feel the lack of time for preparations, difficulty in coping with the concepts and many more other issues. The subjects Chemistry, Physics and Biology have their own significance and difficulty levels. Having a good understanding of the fundamentals of these subjects is necessary. You need to have a good start- so get a good grasp of the basics first, then move on to the advanced concepts. Here are a few tips to strengthen your NEET Basics to help you crack the exam:
Try to have a realistic time-table that you can easily follow. This will help you stay motivated and not get overwhelmed with the preparation. A well structured study plan will help you remain focused. You goal won’t seem too far away when your time-table is constructed in a manner that helps to study well without it seeming unachievable. Go through the syllabus, get a good idea of the topics to be covered, find out the concepts that demand more time and attention than the others and then create your timetable accordingly.
You don’t need to learn entire concepts in one sitting! Divide large topics into sub-topics and learn it better. Mastering the sub-topics gives a better understanding of the main concept. Additionally it helps give an in-depth understanding of the concepts and makes it much easier to study the advanced topics.
Going from one concept to the next just to go through all the NCERT textbooks speedily will do you no good. Just finishing quickly won’t help with creating a deep understanding. Knowing the Fundamentals of any subject takes time. So take up concepts, topics, chapters, section by section, break it up into manageable parts and study better.
Simply reading or listening is not going to help you remember and recall. Understanding comes with you writing down the concepts in your own words through which you have material available to you that you can go back and refer to, whenever you need. Writing assists with better retention. Having notes written by yourself, making it a much more understandable language, makes the tough concepts seem not that difficult to learn and remember. Makes notes with the correct terminology, right explanations / processes, covering the concepts well and this will make learning, recalling and hence, cracking the NEET exam so much more easier.
There’s not just one universal method of studying! There are many interesting ways to understand a concept. There are lots of new study methods and techniques that are being used by many to cope with the boring or tough topics. Use different methods to learn a certain topic and find the one that is most suitable or works for you.
We understand certain topics better when it is taught by a fellow mate. Such kind of casual discussions on a topic help with better understanding. Sharing of knowledge creates a healthier environment for the students.
The preparation for NEET is vast and it requires consistency and perseverance. Regular practice is a must! Concepts learnt need to be linked to each other and understood better but if there’s a gap between concepts that are interlinked, it may get difficult to form a comprehensive understanding and getting back into flow gets a bit difficult. Regular practicing keeps you motivated to stay strong. It helps you stay on track and know what you have studied and what is remaining.
Once studied, topics and concepts need a regular revision. Revise according to the difficulty level of topics. Allot appropriate time to concepts / topics / subjects accordingly. Revision makes learning and recalling formulas, equations, reactions and derivations better. It strengthens the basics and eases further studies.
A head start always puts you ahead of the crowd and there’s less competition there. It automatically eases your way through the exams. Being strong in your basics, developing good mental ability skills, staying motivated will get you through all the obstacles but moreover, having a good foundation is what gets you to your goal!
