A question that is often asked by NEET aspirants is – “How many hours should I study to crack NEET?”
Here we are looking at the ideal study hours that are required to crack NEET examination. Does the number of study hours really matter in NEET preparation? Are there any minimum hours you need to study each day to crack NEET?
How Many Hours of Study is Required to Crack NEET?
On an average, a daily 6-8 hrs is considered good for NEET. The time you need to study will differ depending upon your IQ, whether you are a quick learner or takes time to absorb things. What matters a lot is the quality study that you do and not the number of hours.
Avoid long study hours if it results in fatigue, small breaks after 45–60 minutes of study can improve your productivity.
If you are starting the NEET preparation late, when only less than 6 months remain, then you may need to put more effort (number of hours) into your studies.
The best thing to follow in your NEET preparation is – Don’t focus on hours. Focus on topics.
Some topics take less time to complete, some take more. So numbers of hours can vary. Plan out your schedule – What topics have to be completed today, how they are to be completed, if you do not complete a topic today then how it should be managed with tomorrow’s studies, etc.
“You should never measure the number of hours you study. What matters more is that you should study with full concentration whenever you study.” – Mohit Bhatt (IIT Roorkee)
The above advice is given for JEE exam, but it also holds true for NEET entrance test.
There are no minimum study hours for NEET
During NEET preparation, you have to study consistently, whether that is learning concepts or solving problems. But your study hours can be flexible depending on your strength and weakness for the subject.
When your mind says it’s enough to study a subject for the day, it’s okay to move on to another subject. The adjustment is fine as long as you are finishing your daily work and assignments.
To clear NEET with a very good rank, you need to focus on time management and pattern of solving questions. This can be only achieved by serious dedicated practice and questions solving. As long as you are achieving your daily/ weekly goals, the number of hours are not that important.
Study regularly and consistently.
All the best!
