Many students ask the question “Is it possible to clear NEET without Coaching?” Yes, you do have the equal probability like that of a student who is enrolled at a coaching. The reason is you have all the materials, all the books, and topics required to clear the entrance. Moreover, you have one year to be absolutely ready to crack the exam with flying colours. Trust me! Many students have done that in the past and if you are willing to do the same, you are no different. Your preparation will differ though.

That shouldn’t bother you. If you are bright enough and you have the confidence that you can clear the entrance without any coaching, you can do it. You need to follow certain tips religiously.

Tips to prepare for NEET 2019 without coaching

Tip #1 (Syllabus): Before you start the preparation, you need to be thorough with your syllabus of NEET which is exactly the same that is covered in your 11th and 12th boards. If you are in 11th standard and you want to start your preparation now, you need to make the basics your priority. Dedicate 6 hours to cover at least 2 topics every day. This way you will have a better understanding of the topics.

If you are in 12th standard, then you must dedicate three hours at least for your 12th syllabus and two hours for your 11th standard’s revision. Doing so for at least 9 months, you will be well versed with each of the topics and gain more confidence to write the entrance that is in May. Maintain a notebook for writing down the most important topics every time you study. It is believed that one time writing is equal to reading the topic for three times.

Tip #2 (Give importance to Reference Materials): Reference materials will be your mentor when you have taken the route of Self-Study. The study materials like the previous years’ papers and the books of recommended authors and publication houses will be enough to get your NEET exam preparation on track.

Here is a list of those recommended reference books that you can buy for NEET 2019.

  • Concept of Physics (Volume 1 and 2) by H.C Verma
  • NCERT’s Physics (Part 1 and Part 2)
  • Objective Physics by D.C Pandey
  • Biology by Trueman (Part 1 and Part 2)
  • Objective Biology by Dinesh Publication
  • Physical Chemistry by O.P Tandon
  • Object Chemistry by Dinesh Publication

These books will help you understand a difficult topic further. Keep them by your side whenever you are studying any topic. The solved examples and explanation to every topic will be found in these books in a lucid manner.

Tip #3 (Teacher’s Help): You don’t have any coaching faculty to help you in your venture of self-study but you do have your experienced school teachers. They are talented and subject matter experts and therefore your subject teachers. As you will be in school most of the time before your boards and NEET entrance, your teacher should be your mentor. Seek help for any problem; be it the simplest one. Learn the trick of the traits from them and utilize the assets you have. They might be busy throughout the school hours. You can always approach them after school and request them to help you with your problems. They might also agree to help after school in the school premises.

If you still have any doubts, you can take advantage of the online videos by experts that are available for a better understanding of any topic.

Tip #4 (Stay Away from any Distraction): As you have marched on a path that leads to success but not an easy one, you need no distraction. These days, students are quite attracted to gadgets like smartphones, iPad, tablets, etc. Social media is also getting popular among them. They tend to distract one easily. Take the oath of staying away from these distractions for at least a year before your NEET entrance of 2019.

If you had taken NEET coaching, you would have been engrossed in the classes and together with it, your self-study. Finding time out of that schedule could have been quite impossible. Your way to NEET exam preparation is slightly different and it is challenging too. It is imperative that you devote more and more time to your self-study.

Those online videos mentioned above can be a stress buster if you need to have one.

Tip #5 (Revision): Following the above tips for 9 months consecutively, you are now on the verge of completion of your study at home. From the 9th month onwards, you can start revising your 12th standard’s books which will become a cumulative study for your NEET 2019 too. From the 10th month, start revising your 11th standard’s course. While you are revising, you should include GK preparation so that you score in that too.

Tip #6 (Mock Test): As you have followed all the tips by the 10th month, you can have previous years’ papers ready for writing mock tests. When you are doing that, ensure you have a timer set. You will have learned to manage writing in three hours.

Tip #7 (Take care of Health): As NEET 2019 is just a few months away and you must be nervous. Being nervous is quite normal but being stressed and skipping meals can be risky. You don’t want to fall sick while you are preparing for your exam. Not to miss the rules for a single day, you have to take better care of your health. How do you do that?

  • You need to eat on time. Include more fruits and dry fruits in your diet
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Exercise or any physical activity of 30 minutes should be followed daily

Remember one thing. By the month of April, you should have completed your topics and revising each of them thoroughly. Study done well in advance will fetch you the desired result at once.

Self-Study with Self-confidence!
