90% of candidates will close their books immediately when somebody says “your exam’s been postponed!”

You’ve got an extra 20 days before the NEET-SS 2023 exam. Will you use it to rise to the top and earn your dream super speciality?

This delay might be a blessing for your NEET-SS exam preparation, but it can also be a curse if not utilised properly.

1. Don't Break the Rhythm: Keep Studying

The first and most important point is to avoid losing your momentum. We understand that it is tempting to take a break or relax for a few days when an unexpected delay occurs. However, this can be disastrously counterproductive. 

Think about it like this: you have been preparing rigorously for the exam and in the process have finely tuned your study rhythm. Taking a break will weaken this rhythm instead of refreshing you or making your preparation more effective. 

It is absolutely essential that you maintain the same intensity and focus. This involves sticking to the same study hours, techniques, and commitment. The only change you need to make it tweak your study schedule so that it is sustainable over the next 20 days. 

If you need help in doing this, here are some tips to help you stay on track:

  • Set Short-Term Goals: Divide your remaining syllabus into smaller sections. This will make it easier to set daily or weekly goals. Achieving these milestones will give you an instant sense of accomplishment and motivation to continue.
  • Stick to Your Routine: Continue waking up and going to bed at the same time. It takes a lot of time to create a routine and become good at sticking to it. Don’t regress. Your body and mind are accustomed to this routine now and deviating from it can disrupt your productivity.

Remember, consistency is key. By maintaining your study rhythm, you'll ensure that the extra 20 days don't go to waste.

  • Analyze Your Performance: After each test, conduct a thorough analysis of your performance. Identify areas where you scored well and those where you struggled. Focus on improving your weak areas. 
  • Time Management Practice: Grand Tests also enable you to fine-tune your time management skills. When you understand how to allocate time for different sections and types of questions, you will be well-prepared for the real deal. 
  • Review and Revise: Use the insights gained from these tests to adjust your study plan. Do not be afraid to change your course of study. That’s what GTs are for; to help you find the right direction of study for maximum performance.

3. Keep Revising Constantly

These extra 20 days can be a game-changer if you make the most of them for revision.

Here's how you can approach revision effectively:

  • Create a Revision Schedule: Dedicate a significant portion of your daily study time to revision. This will help you commit information to long-term memory. You can allocate different slots for different subjects or topics. Remember to stick to your schedule religiously.
  • Use Revision Aids: Utilize flashcards and mind maps to make the revision process more efficient. You can find find these under Treasuers on the PrepLadder app. Using these tools can help you condense complex information into easily digestible chunks.
  • Prioritize Weak Areas: Identify the topics or subjects where you're less confident and prioritize them in your revision schedule. Consistent revision of weak areas can turn them into strengths.
