This over confidence might result negatively and lead them to ignore in the crucial time and may cost high in the examination.

  • Lack of Self-Assessment

Most of the candidates fail in cracking NEET examination due to lack of self-assessment, during their study and examinations.

  • Ignoring personal Weaknesses

Candidates might be studying the same syllabus but all not having the same zeal of studying all the subjects / chapters. Some students are very enthusiastic in learning about the concepts and theoretical aspects of the subjects while some are in numerical methods. Concentrating on any one is not all advisable, while the exam have weightage on both the methods and especially in few subjects like Physics. Candidates should overcome their personal weaknesses and try to work hard on those areas that they are weak and should improve in those difficult concepts.

  • Not practicing enough

The entire World’s information is useless for you if you are not concentrating on the syllabus as per the weightage and method of the examination.

Candidates assume that ample concentration on the Biology and chemistry is enough and a little bit of concentration on the Physics concepts can yield them at least 20-25 correct answers out of total 45 physics section. But this method is the most foolish method if you see that every subject is equally crucial and learning the concepts is very important. Leaving few concepts based on their weightage if it has given less weightage is feasible and concentrating on all the other important and relevant concepts thoroughly might yield you get good percentage and will increase the chances of high rank and attaining medical seat.

  • Not attempting enough Mock tests

Students should follow the norm “Health is Wealth and Health is important to success”.

  1. Exam day Fear
