How to Score Good Marks in NEET? Secrets to Scoring 600 plus Marks

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney

In the context of India’s most difficult medical entrance examination i.e. National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), to score great marks demands extraordinary preparation, dedication, a lot of practice and many more factors, of course. If you have ever thought of donning in white jacket with a stethoscope around the neck, you have got to be very stringent with your NEET preparation strategy. And honestly speaking, cracking NEET and scoring more than 600 marks is not that easy. The applicant needs to understand the number – 600, first.

Have an Analytical Mind – The NEET Exam Pattern 2019:

How can you score without a proper plan? Since you are looking forward to the ways of how to score good marks in NEET, you must understand that there are three subjects carrying 720 marks in total. All questions will be objective type. There will be 180 MCQs. You must get 150 questions correct. One incorrect answer would result in the deduction of 1 mark. We mean to say that there is negative marking scheme for NEET exam. Hence, the plan, the strategy and the technique should be precise and perfect. In case, you are confused about a couple of answers better attempt 165 MCQs and be on the safer side.

Meticulous Practice for Physics & Chemistry, Soft Practice for Biology:

Speaking of the subjects and their scoring records, it has been observed that Physics is the toughest paper, followed by Chemistry (it is also considered as the scoring subject). For Biology, you can get little lenient.

Study Books and Study Mantra:

Instead of stressing on many books, follow a few, yet simple materials and stand out in the exam. NCERT books are highly recommended by previous years’ NEET toppers. Materials from NCERT are simple and help establish a strong foundation. Moreover, students who are well-familiarised with the syllabus of Class 11th and 12th get an edge over others.

How many hours a day do NEET aspirants spend on studying? Some say, 15 hours; others say, 12 hours. This means there are no fixed hours of study. If you are in a good mood and feel like studying for long hours, go ahead with it. You will be able to remember more. It is always better to study one hour with your heart and soul in it than studying aimlessly for 8 hours.

Focus on Important Topics for NEET Exam before Taking NEET 2019

For someone who dreams of becoming a medical practitioner is advised to make a strong reading habit. Reason being the competition is so tough and stiff.

It’s time to target NEET 2019. The first thing a medical aspirant must do is to get his hands on the latest syllabus. With the right syllabus starts the right preparation. In the words of Rashmi Bhardwaj (who is gearing up for the second attempt in 2019), “Honestly, it starts with the NEET syllabus. Unless you have access to the right materials, the chances get tougher and tougher. All my faculties stressed on following the NCERT books. And they were absolutely correct because 60-70 per cent questions were from the NCERT books. Hopefully, I will clear the exam in my next attempt”.

Open School and Private Candidates are unable to apply with NEET Exam 2018

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET Exam is the entrance exam for students who want to go for graduation in medical course, dental course or postgraduate course in government or private medical colleges of India. This is a national level exam, but it was not meant for open school and private candidates. So, students from open school and private candidates were not entitled to appear in NEET 2018. These students don’t fulfill the minimum eligibility criteria for NEET exam 2018.

However, after the intervention of the Honorable High Court, Delhi the organizing authorities allowed the open and private candidates to appear in the NEET exam 2018 as per the public notice dated 01/03/2018 from CBSE, Delhi. But, despite the order from the Honorable High Court, Delhi; a number of students are unable to apply online due to some technical glitch on the online application website for NEET Exam 2018.

What was the “technical glitch” with NEET online application form?

The eligibility criteria for NEET Exam 2018 disqualified open school and private candidates to appear in it. This was the reason that they didn’t keep a provision for open school and private candidates in their online application form.

Later, after the intervention of the Honorable High Court, Delhi, CBSE had withdrawn the restriction for open school and private candidates for appearing in NEET exam. Here, came the technical glitch as earlier it was not meant for open school and private candidates; so there were some mandate options to fill some details, which is not applicable for open school and private candidates.

How the technical glitch got noticed?

So, due to this issue; despite the order from the High Court, students were facing issues with it. Due to this issue, there were some complaints registered with NIOS authorities; who took it further with CBSE for resolution. As per the official spokespersons from CBSE; “We are working on the problem. The students can fill only their Class XII details in the box and the system should accept.”

The NIOS officials also acknowledged the same as; “the issue could be solved only on Monday, the next working day. Board officials termed the problem a technical glitch.”

What is the solution for technical glitch with the NEET online application?

The CBSE released a public notice for the same as a solution for that technical glitch on 05.03.2018 stating; “it is informed that candidates from Open School and Private Candidates when submitting their application form for NEET (UG), 2018, may submit details as suggested below under the information of Class XI.”

  • Place of Study – AS APPLICABLE
  • State where Class XI School/College is located – AS OF CLASS XII
  • District where Class XI School/College is located – AS OF CLASS XII

The last date for applying with NEET Exam 2018 is 09.03.2018 (Friday) up to 23:50 Hrs. (IST) and successful payment of online fee is 10.03.2018 (Saturday) up to 23:50 Hrs. (IST); so students are advised to fill their online form as earliest possible and pay online fee too. However, the court is about to decide, whether the students from open and private candidatures will be allowed to write the exams or not.

Technical glitch faced by NIOS and private schooling applying for NEET Exam 2018; Solution!

The NEET Exam 2018 is about to conduct on the 06th May’ 2018 this year, for admission in undergraduate courses of MBBS and BDS across India. This entrance exam is mandatory to apply for MBBS and BDS courses in various government and private medical science institutes. Initially, the eligibility criteria dishonored the same for open school and private candidates. Later, the intervention of the Honorable High Court, Delhi; CBSE made the amendment in the eligibility criteria for open school and private candidates.

What is the stand of CBSE for eligibility of open school and private candidates for NEET Exam 2018?

NEET Exam 2018 is the entrance exam for admission in undergraduate courses in medical and dental institutes of India. Students, who are aiming to study for MBBS or BDS in India, they need to appear and qualify for this exam.

This year, CBSE is conducting the NEET Exam 2018 this year. They have released the official eligibility criteria for the same. And, as per the initial notifications; students who are from NIOS/State Open School or private students were not eligible to appear NEET. Also, students who have passed Biology as an additional subject were not allowed to apply NEET Exam 2018.

This was considered against the interest of the students who were not able to make it as a regular student or who have completed their +2 with Biology as an additional subject. Later, the issue has been registered with NIOS by students, in order to get an equal opportunity to decide their dream career with medical science.

The same has been taken up to the Honorable High Court of Delhi; which came into the favor of open school and private candidates on 28th February’ 2018. The CBSE accepted the verdict and later on 1st of March they have released a public notice for the same. After the verdict, the following students are also eligible to apply for NEET Exam 2018 as given here.

Apart from the above mentioned amendments; other conditions of NEET will remain same for this year. Now, these students can also apply for the NEET Exam 2018.

What was the technical glitch with NEET Exam 2018 online application and what is the solution for it?

The Honorable High Court of Delhi and NEET exam 2018 organizing authority grant permission to students from open school and private candidates to appear in the exam, which was not there before. After this decision; students from open school and private candidates can also apply for NEET.

But, here came a twist; as NEET was not meant for open school and private candidates; so there is no provision for these candidates to mention their qualification details (especially the class 11th details) and neither they can skip some of this information; it has been declared as a technical glitch in the online NEET application for open school and private candidates. The same has been brought in the notice of CBSE; after that CBSE released another notice with the latest development with it.

  • Place of Study – AS APPLICABLE
  • State where Class XI School/College is located – AS OF CLASS XII
  • District where Class XI School/College is located – AS OF CLASS XII

Students can take reference from the above information and apply online for NEET Exam 2018 this year. The mentioned “technical glitch” has been fixed successfully with it.

Should You Drop NEET 2018 by a Year to Prepare Better?

“I want to be a doctor” – You might have answered so to your class teacher when asked during your school time. Now that you are all grown-up, it’s time to achieve what you have dreamt once.

NEET is the only central level entrance examination to get admission to MBBS and BDS courses. This year, the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is going to be held on May 6. With a couple days to spare for the last day to submit the NEET 2018 application form (March 9), aspiring candidates don’t want to take any chance by waiting till the last moment. While most of them have already submitted the application form, there are still a good number of candidates contemplating over appearing the exam. They are in the notion that dropping a year would enhance the preparation and score better when appear the exam next year.

How to Know If Dropping a Year or Two Is Good?

A recent study by a leading educational magazine, most NEET aspirants, when asked about dropping a year, said that they are not well-prepared for the entrance exam due to lack of time; some said they are not quite confident about their chances; and others said they are more focused on the Board examinations. All these statements have valid points – it’s okay! Cracking the toughest entrance exam is not a piece of cake. Applicants must have 55{56616362fbff030623cdc1a764e361ba30723d58364aefe96fbffdd47beb6523} in subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Since it has a vast curriculum and there is high rivalry, it can certainly distress the students. Maybe all these aspects lead a NEET aspirant to rethink before appearing the test.

Seek advice from elders, contact previous years’ candidates who have attempted and cleared the test or if possible, take a piece of paper and note down the pros and cons of not appearing the exam for a year. This way, the exam burden can be lessened to some extent.


  • You will have enough time to understand the complete NEET exam pattern, syllabus and other important things related to the entrance examination; hence, the preparation will be based on the same.
  • Taking early decision (the idea of dropping the exam) can help you appear in board exams with less stress; and you can possibly score better.
  • Taking up mock test and practicing previous years’ question papers will come in handy tremendously.


  • The major disadvantage of not appearing the exam will increase the stress of clearing it next time. The expectations from parents, relatives and teacher go high.
  • Self-study wouldn’t be enough as it involves a lot of self-restraint and commitment.
  • The fear of lagging behind and not matching up with friends in starting college together.
  • You will miss out on getting first-hand exam experience.

To appear or not to appear is completely your own decision. But being focused and sticking to it with great dedication and complete conviction will certainly help you get into your favorite medical college.
