The Struggles of NEET

Author: Dr. Sindhu

NEET is a placement exam led for undergraduates and med school aspirants across India. This test is considered the gateway for medical students into reputed institutions. Any undergrad who needs to get a seat in one or the other government or private clinical school should be able to crack the NEET assessment. 

Everyone knows that the NEET test is perhaps the hardest test in India. Indeed, there is no exaggeration in that. But why is it so difficult is the real question? 

Below are some of the many reasons to help answer this.

  • Difficult Subjects 

The subjects are the initial ones at fault here. NEET has three subjects-Chemistry, Physics, and Biology to get into MBBS, and these three subjects are intense. Physics is perhaps the hardest subject for the majority of the aspirants. For certain applicants, physics might appear excruciating, most of the physics topics that are tested have no clinical relevance. In any case, it is important for the aspirant to excel with thorough practice, which often needs extra coaching. So, what about students that come from families who can’t afford coaching?

  • Limited Time

The time gap between the board exams and NEET is only two months, and the syllabus for the test is a ton. It turns out to be difficult for the undergrads to get ready for the test in such a short period time. It’s difficult for the aspirants to finish the whole syllabus on schedule and move on to the NEET online test series to assess themselves. This is quite possibly the most well-known reason why aspirants fall behind in the assessment. The absence of time builds the trouble of assessments.

  • The Competition 

More than 8-9 lakhs of students go after the NEET test each year. There is outrageous rivalry among aspirants which makes it extreme to break. Even the top-scorers are unable to achieve the marks they aim for. The extreme subjects, competition, with a ton of pressing factors from people around the students makeS NEET even more difficult. On the off chance that the applicants try sincerely and plan as indicated by a timetable, they will endure the test.

  • Absence of Self-Assessment 

Evaluating yourself during preparation is fundamental to get a decent comparison of what is lacking and what needs improvement. Self-assessment is a key factor to identify your strengths and weaknesses. It helps one adjust their work accordingly and helps achieve the aimed score.

  • A lot of Stress 

Stress is a significant issue for the applicants showing up for any entrance exams. The undergrads that are under pressure may accomplish more slip-ups in the main assessment. Each aspirant ought to know not to be excessively upset and lose their concentration at that point or before the assessment which could result in them committing errors. Because honestly, there are more rewarding and lucrative professions.

  • Health Concerns

Over 30% of competitors that are trying for entrance exams will in general fail in them because of last-minute medical problems. Not having sufficient rest, consistent pressure, extreme preparation are some of the reasons for so. Not really focusing enough on their wellbeing, and becoming debilitated/dull at the hour of the test makes it all the very difficult in the end and takes a toll on their mental health.
