Generally, most people are immediately intimidated when they hear IIT JEE and NEET. However, these competitive exams may not be the hardest to crack with the right tools and hard work. This article discusses some key elements to focus on when beginning your prep for IIT JEE (Main and Advanced) and NEET. 


Create a study plan 


Having a well-drafted study schedule can be immensely helpful. With the help of a study plan, you will be able to dedicate an equal amount of time to each of the subjects and prioritize those subjects that may need extra effort. For example, while JEE focuses on Physics, Chemistry and Maths, NEET focuses on Physics, Chemistry and Biology. So, you can be smart and thoroughly study the overlapping subjects and dedicate extra focus to Biology and Maths separately. 


Have a strong foundation 


More often than not, students tend to delve straight into reference books for competitive exams. However, it is crucial to have a strong base before starting reference work. This essentially means that you must have your concepts cleared and opt for books by NCERT. Then, after establishing a solid foundation, go ahead and use reference books to clear particular concepts. 


Mock tests and previous years' papers 


Make good use of the mock tests and previous years' question papers available. Just mugging up the material will not help; practice is essential for a good score. Go through the syllabus thoroughly, as it will give you a firm idea of what topics to emphasize. By solving previous years' question papers, you will familiarise yourself with the question paper pattern and learn to answer the questions in the stipulated time frame. 




All of your hard work will be useless if you do not regularly revise. Through revision, you will commit things to memory and retain information for a longer time. Use flashcards and notes to revise and watch yourself progressively improve with time. Review your notes after completing a topic to ensure that your effort does not go down the drain. 




Cracking even a single competitive exam takes a lot of hard work, and it is often a tedious process. So, if you wish to crack both IIT JEE and NEET, be ready to work hard and with sincerity. Some days will be highly challenging, but in the end, the reward will make it worth it. Seek our professional help from premier coaching institutes as Lamplighter.
