NEET 2019; NTA Releases Study Material for Preparation

NEET 2019

NEET, intended for the students aspiring for getting admitted to the MBBS or BDS programs offered in the medical or dental institutes in India, is going to be conducted by the National Testing Agency from 2019 onwards. The exam is going to be held in the offline or the pen and paper mode and the date scheduled for the upcoming NEET is declared to be May 5, 2019. The online registration process has already begun and the applicants will be allowed to complete the application process till November 30, 2018.

In order to help the students in getting ready for the impending exam, NTA has released some official study materials for the NEET aspirants. The study tips and the preparation materials are arranged according to the suggestions of the experts in this field with the intention that both the freshers and the droppers would be benefitted from these materials. In addition to the guidance tips on how to get prepared for NEET 2019, the blogs section of the official website of NTA discusses important details like the dates, exam pattern, syllabus, application process etc.

Recently, NTA has uploaded academic lectures on physics, chemistry, and biology by renowned professors and IT professionals in the video format on its official web portal. These videos are also intended for NEET aspirants, in order to make the entire exam pattern clearer to them in lucid language. However, the students are required to keep this thing in their mind that the topics or the questions discussed in the videos or the study tips blogs are taken as instances only and they are in no way meant to come in the original exam papers.

Once a candidate is on familiar terms with the syllabus, he/she needs to know some helpful and functional preparation strategies. The preparation for the NEET is not an exception in this regard. According to the NTA, following are some of the preparation tips that may work effectively for all if applied correctly at the appropriate time:

  • Preparation should begin several months before so that the candidates do not need to hurry or have to leave any chapter unprepared
  • A certain pace should be maintained throughout the preparation period or else there might be a risk of leaving several chapters unread
  • Along with copious reading, continuous self-evaluation is necessary to check the level of preparation
  • Taking short breaks is indispensable as nonstop reading may harm more rather than doing any good
  • Registering for the NTA organized mock tests can be a vital part of the NEET preparation

When it comes to the preparation of any national-level exam like the NEET, there arises the obvious question of what to read and from where to read. To help students in these situations, NTA has released a list containing the names of the important chapters from each subject and a list of the names of the books to be consulted for a better understanding of all of the three subjects. Let us have a look at them:

Important Chapters

Subject Topic Why it is important
Physics Mechanics This area had a huge significance for itself as there were more or less 12-14 questions which were asked from here previously
Chemistry Organic Chemistry This topic, as seen in the previous years’ papers, dominated the question paper of chemistry and had more or less 14-15 questions related to it
Biology This subject was more of impartial in nature as more or less 6-7 questions are generally asked and all the chapters are uniformly covered


Important Books
