Adapt yourself and attune your body cycle in accordance with the exam schedule. Begin your day early, have your breakfast and sit to take your NEET 2019 practice test like you would do on your NEET 2019 Exam Day.
Revise Only What is Required
Read and revise only NCERT. Toppers, teachers, examiners and experts, all advice that NCERT is enough for NEET 2019 preparation. Do not add up to last moment pressure and confusion by going through any extra books. Go through and ingrain what your teachers emphasized as important.
