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.

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!
