NEET Preparation Tips: In conversation with Mr. Narendra Kumar Yadav - Founder of NEET Sarthi Group

Students are facing a lot of problems regarding NEET 2021 Examination Dates, Exam Pattern, Syllabus, etc. To lower these worries a bit I had a chance to speak with Mr. Narendra Kumar Yadav, Founder of NEET Sarthi Group

In this interview, Mr. Narendra Kumar shares his opinion on NEET Preparation Strategy, Expected New NEET Pattern, Changes in Syllabus, Books recommended for preparation, Mock test attempts, and much more.

Here are the excerpts from the Interview :

Harshita :Choosing the right Books and Preparation material have always been a concern for many students preparing for NEET as they don’t find enough past NEET aspirants around them. So, according to you which are some of the best books for preparation that you recommend for each of the 3 sections and overall preparation?

Narendra Sir: We recommend Ncert fingertips book for NEET biology and for Chemistry Fundamental Problem in Organic Chemistry by SKC Sir and Physics by D.C.Pandey & We also recommend students to practice thousands of exclusive NEET pattern Questions available on NEET Sarthi App

Harshita :Students in Class 11 and 12 start NEET preparations while some start preparing even before that. According to you what would be the most suitable time for them to start their preparations for medical examinations like NEET?

Narendra Sir: Some students start preparing for NEET as early as possible like from 9th standard to be more focused on clearing the exam. Whereas Some may only start preparing from 11th or 12th onwards. I think students should start at least from 11th class because the most important thing is to get a strong foundation.

Harshita :Giving enough Mock Tests and good Mock Tests have been a concerning point for a lot of students before giving NEET. According to you what should be the right approach that a student must follow for giving Mock Tests before NEET?

Narendra Sir: Mock test having exclusive NEET or NCERT based questions should be practised more & more, so that Students can judge their level of preparedness and accuracy fairly. They should avoid mock test having irrelevant questions because it might decrease their confidence. We keep all these things in our mind while preparing mock test for NEET Sarthi test series.

Harshita: It is always advised that a student who is preparing for NEET examination must go through the previous year papers of exam, according to you why it is important to solve the previous year question papers and how they are helpful for the student?

Narendra Sir: Yes, it is very important as previous year questions (PYQ) help to understand exam pattern and level of questions being asked now a days. they can also expect repetition of some PYQ in Physics and Chemistry.

Harshita: Even though most of Class 11 and 12 NCERT books cover the relevant syllabus for NEET Exams. Can you suggest some books apart from these which might offer help and relevant knowledge to the students during their preparations?

Narendra Sir: No doubt students should focuse more on class 11th & 12th NCERT books but question practise / regular test are equally important for getting good score in NEET exam. Reference books suggested by me is a part of your choice. Apart from these they must get benefited if they practise chapter wise question & attempt Live Tests provided by NEET Sarthi, KOTA.
