  • Do make time for yourself – Along with NEET-PG preparation, you should also continue with your regular activities and hobbies to refresh your mind. This helps in increasing concentration and makes studying more interesting.
  • Do maintain discipline – "Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments".
  • Once the study plan is made, you will need to maintain discipline and implement it rigorously. Mere planning for NEET 2020 will not be enough if you don’t maintain discipline.

  • Don’t carry any kind of items which are not permitted or barred in the examination centre as it may prevent you from appearing for the examination.
