Achieving a score of 340+ in NEET Biology is a formidable goal for aspiring medical students in India. In this post, Stuti Arora (an MBBS student, who scored 347/360 in biology in NEET 2021) will tell you how to study for NEET to score 340+ in Biology. With a little more effort, you can score 350+ in NEET Biology.
How to Score 340+ in NEET Biology?
Follow the below study tips to score 340+ in NEET Biology :
1. Keep NCERT your core book
You can study extra also, from reference books, but make sure it is relevant and you do not deviate from the actual NEET syllabus. Revise NCERT textbook as many times as you can.
2. Study everything in NCERT Biology
Study everything that is given in NCERT for scoring 340+ in NEET Biology, be it the description below the diagram, various tables and structures given (biomolecules). Everything means everything.
3. Remember diagrams very very carefully
Remember all the diagrams in NCERT Biology. There are questions from diagrams almost every year in NEET (except 2021).
4. Examples are important in Biology
Learn examples, especially of chapters- plant kingdom, animal kingdom, morphology of flowering plants etc. Take a page and write all the examples of a particular chapter on it so that you do not have to open your book in order to revise the examples.
5. Making notes for NEET
It depends entirely on you whether you want to make notes or not. I made notes of only those chapters which I found difficult to understand and retain, for example, animal kingdom, plant kingdom.
6. Chapter-wise strategy to score 350+ in NEET Biology
- Go into a little bit detail in chapters like biotechnology, microbes in human welfare, like studying a few extra examples of these chapters.
- For the 1st and 2nd unit of class 11th (kingdoms, morphology, anatomy etc. one), don’t go into so much extra detail. Make sure you are able to differentiate between the various plants & animals. You should know which species belongs to which kingdom and the characteristics of that kingdom.
- Know the difference between cristae and cisternae, NADP and NADPH (these are the only ones I can remember right now).
- Study the diseases given at the end of chapters of human physiology very very carefully especially that heart attack, cardiac arrest and heart failure. It may come in the form of match ups.
- Practice all the cycles given in mineral nutrition, photosynthesis and respiration in plants chapters. You should know what products are formed at what steps, how much ATP is formed from a particular process, etc.
- Read principles of inheritance, molecular basis of inheritance, evolution, very very carefully. You never know what is gonna be asked in the exam. Make sure you know transcription, translation, just know everything in those chapters. There’s nothing that can be missed in these chapters. Learn the brain capacities of various species of human evolution.
7. Solve MCQs of each chapter
Solving MCQs in Biology will help you to know what type of questions are asked in the NEET exam and will also help in increasing your speed and accuracy.
8. Give mock tests and solve previous year papers
This is must do for NEET : Solving mock tests and previous year questions of NEET. I would say initially you should do the last 10–12 years papers. And if you have time, you can go for 20–25 years.
9. Keep revising all the stuff in Biology
Revision is very important to remember things for a longer time. Whatever you studied in a week, revise it all on Sunday (or whenever you feel fine to do). Regular revision keeps all your learning intact for the exam.
10. Don’t forget about things outside NCERT
What I did for extra material was that I wrote it in the NCERT so that when I had to revise a particular chapter, I only had to open NCERT. I did not make separate notes for it. If the extra material was a bit too much, I wrote it on a page and pasted it on the first page of the chapter.
I hope the above tips will be of some help to you and you score 350+ in NEET Biology!
All the best.
