Tips to increase marks in NEET.

Question asked by a medical aspirant – “How can I increase my score from 500 to 650 in the NEET?” In this post, I will tell you reasons why your marks are not increasing in NEET and some tips to improve your score in NEET mock tests.

This is a guest post by Abhishek Garg (AIR 760 in NEET 2018).

Why your marks are not increasing in NEET tests?

Why your marks not increasing in NEET tests? The answer for this question lies in the fact of Self-Analysis (post-test) that ‘What is/ are the actual reason for not increasing marks in NEET tests?’

  1. Are you unable to solve the whole question paper because of scarcity of time?
  2. Are there some specific topics, the questions of which trouble you in the test and eat up your time every time?
  3. Was your preparation good enough to get that high score?
  4. Is it the so-called ‘Silly Mistakes’ thing?

These four major points are the ones which stops an aspirant to increase score in NEET.

How to Improve Score in NEET Mock Tests?

Here are some tips to increase marks in NEET mock tests :

1. Have a thorough knowledge of concepts and practice questions

Improvise the way of learning (Mnemonics, flow charts, tables, diagrams). It can aid in solving the questions quickly and precisely in NEET.

If you look at the above points again, don’t you think there are some interlinks in the same?

Follow the sequence 3 →2 →1 →4

2. Complete all the chapters in the NEET syllabus

If there are some chapters which you didn’t prepare sufficiently or just left them as they were difficult or some other reason (Point 3), the questions based on them will definitely trouble you in the exam (Point 2) and consume your time if you decide to solve them.

This in turn would result in relatively less time available for the other questions which may lead to a situation in which the candidate doesn’t even get time to attempt (or in some case even ‘See’ ) the questions (Point 1), definitely contributing to that huge gap of marks as mentioned earlier.

3. Don’t rush, read question carefully and avoid calculation mistakes

Among all these things/ difficulties, most candidates, being the usual Homo sapiens, develop a fear of not being able to attempt all the questions, because of which they just rush during the exam in order to attempt and solve the maximum number of questions they can. But in this phase, they just forget to focus on the details of the questions like –

  • – are all, EXCEPT
  • – is incorrect –
  • – is not incorrect –

and interpret them wrongly.

They also do some calculations wrong because of their extreme pace, in total, resulting in a good amount of negatives, bringing down their NEET scores. This realization comes when they check the actual answers and tag them with, the most popular, Silly Mistakes‘ (Point 4).

These are some mistakes which a normal candidate makes and are unable to increase scores in tests. So you should keep these things in mind in order to achieve the purpose of scoring higher in NEET.

4. Analyse the test to not repeat the same mistakes again

Self analysis after the tests is a very important part of increasing your marks in NEET. It lets you think about the concepts that you applied at the time of the exam and also add-ons to your memory, the answers that you got wrong (especially in Biology) and there are less chances of getting a similar question wrong again in the future.
