With just six months left for NEET PG 2023, the preparation of all aspiring candidates is in full swing. But what if we tell you there's a way to make your prep more productive and fruitful?
In addition to developing a thorough understanding of a subject, it's also vital to ensure that the learned material is rightly stored in the brain's recesses and can be swiftly pulled out when you finally appear for the exam.
Focused and planned preparation can help you enhance knowledge retention. So, during the final months of your prep, pay attention to the most important topics instead of poring over the entire study material of a subject. In this blog, you will find a list of high-yield topics for pediatrics that will cover you for the upcoming NEET PG 2023.
Every year, 15-20 questions in the NEET PG exam are asked from pediatrics. Therefore, PrepLadder, with the help of our expert faculty, Dr. Meenakshi Bothra, has come up with a list of high-yield topics for Pediatrics. Take a look.
