Many states CET syllabus is already the one which is recommended by CBSE (changes were in effect from 2013). The concepts are same, it’s just about the right approach and practicing enough problems of AIPMT level.
Language is something which we need to get better with time. Start learning in English. It’s a language that will shape up your future, growth, and helps in acquiring skills through wider resources. Think of it as one of the lesson learned from NEET 2016.
