NEET PG is a highly competitive exam which demands focused and dedicated preparation coupled with the determination to get through the exam.
Studying seems to be a monotonous activity to most of the candidates. Candidates generally get bored at some instance or the other while studying.
This article will share tips on how to combat boredom while studying for NEET PG Medical.
One of the underlying aspects of effective study is identifying the right place. Discover a place which is free from distractions since distractions are counterproductive to learning.
Select a place which is well-lit and temperature controlled.
You can also prefer places like the library for study since the environment is peaceful and free from distractions.
Do not choose an environment which is ‘too comfortable’ since it will lead to distractions and boredom. Avoid studying on a bed or a chair which is ‘too comfortable’.
Always prefer a chair that helps you keep your body erect while studying.
Once you start studying a certain topic you will start generating interest in it. Switching to another topic might take away the interest.
So try to cover that topic from all the subjects. For eg. You can combine Physiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Medicine and Paediatrics to study one topic. Similarly you can combine Anatomy, Pathology and Surgery.
Candidates often end up getting bored when they are unaware of what they need to accomplish in life.
Plan your goals prior to commencing any preparation. Introspect on what you need to accomplish in life. Setting clear objectives will help you to keep away from boredom.
