As for NEET 2021, it is tentatively scheduled in May 2021.
So, students are urged to make a comprehensive study plan, and for that, knowing and understanding the syllabus is a must. Let’s browse through the essential tips and tricks to prepare a perfect NEET 2021 study plan here below.
How to put together a smart study plan for NEET 2021?
With the reduction in CBSE Syllabus for 2020 to 2021, it may impact NEET 2021 syllabus as well. So, stay tuned for official updates. Students have to be prepared with whatever the changes that the NTA will decide. Given below are some of the most effective factors of a smart study plan, that will help you crack the NEET 2021 exam with flying colours.
- Make the syllabus familiar
Let’s face it, the NEET Syllabus is vast, with students being overwhelmed whenever they lay their eyes on it. However, don’t worry about the exam much, because being familiar with the syllabus can make this mountainous task seem a lot easier. Make sure you keep glancing at this syllabus frequently, as soon as you get it in your hands. This will make the concepts seem easier and ultimately help a lot in knowing where you stand in your study preparation.
- Quality Study Material
You will be recommended many of the study materials, not just by your tuitions, but also by the authority of NEET 2021. Those are adequate enough, but along with that, you are supposed to be collecting relevant study material to prepare for this year, including texts as well as question and sample papers.
- Make a comprehensive but simple timetable
Study timetables will not be effective – they give the students a clear sense of how to proceed with their studies. The timetable doesn’t have to be extravagant in its preparation – just a simple timetable, but comprehensive and covering all the syllabus one should be made by the students. The students are advised to spend more time on making a personalized timetable so that they get more than enough time to not only study but revise as well.
- Make quick notes
Just studying and byhearting is not the key to wholesome learning and not at all a recommended move if you are wishing on cracking the NEET 2021 exam. Make sure that you have fast notes while studying so that they can be the anchor you can fall back on while revising or even before going to the exam. If you want to be successful in NEET, make a separate book for these notes – this book will be the key in your revision time, making it easy and comfortable.
Study Plan For Memory Retention and Practice
Given below are some tips which will help you stay regular on your studies and also ensure that you do not forget what you have learned in the past few days-
Once you are done with your initial studying, spend a day without touching anything from your study. Then dive in for a revision with a legitimate NEET Revision Plan, and it should be a thorough revision. Make sure your timetable dedicates enough time for revision. Peruse the notes that you made while studying and go through the topics that you found particularly hard during studying. Take help of online options, including Google and YouTube, so as to help you revise even more comfortably.
- Solve sample papers and mock tests
NEET Sample papers and mock tests are available in plethora, not just online, but also in your classes or from those who’ve appeared for the exam before. The students actually benefit the most from solving sample papers and appearing for mock tests. Not only do they give you an adequate sense of timing, but also makes sure that you are ready for any kind of questions that come in the NEET exam 2020 and NEET 2021; because these sample papers and mock tests will help you whenever you appear for it.
- You come first
Students think over exhausting themselves would make sure that they are successful in their NEET 2021 exam. However, that’s not the case at all. Whatever you have planned in your timetable, you have to add enough time to get rest and relax from all the exam hullabaloo. Proper diet, a little bit of exercise and breaks in between the study sessions are important. No exam is worth you tiring yourself; and if you are happy and healthy, you can concentrate more properly and have a better chance of passing your examination with excellent grades.

The COVID-19 pandemic has rendered everything into chaotic confusion, but the students are advised to not lose their hearts and still study as hard and dedicatedly as possible. There is always the question of how to prepare for all of the competitive examinations, even more so for the NEET examination, may it be of the previous year or even NEET 2021.
The tips and strategy for NEET 2021 mentioned in this article will not only help the students to concentrate on their studies but also increase their chances of appearing in the top ranks. Concentrate and focus is the mantra for cracking the test!
It is being reported that NTA is considering revising the dates of NEET 2021. This is due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the delayed NEET 2020 Exam Dates. The postponing of the current year dates of NEET and JEE Main has already caused trouble with the academic calendar for students. The decision on NEET 2021 dates would be taken only after the situation of COVID-19 spread is under control and schools are set to re-open.
For now, schools and colleges are shut until 31st July 2020. There’s varying response from various authorities over reopening the schools and colleges and thereby conducting the exams that have not been conducted due to the country-wide lockdown. However, most of the universities are conducting open-book online exams which are now being seen as the new normal.
Delay in 2020, Means Delay in 2021
The dates for NEET 2020 have been postponed twice since March 2020. Considering the gap of around 2 months, it is unlikely that the COVID-19 situation in the country would come under control so soon. This could mean another delay in the NEET 2020 exams. The new date for NEET 2020 is 13th September 2020.
If that happens, it is likely that the NEET 2021 Application Forms could not be released by Nov-Dec 2020. Moreover, the possibility of conducting the JEE Main January 2021 session by NTA will also come at a halt. The dates for a lot of other exams might coincide such as CBSE Boards, NEET (UG), JEE Main and JEE Advanced. This will put pressure on authorities, as well as, hamper the performance of students in respective exams. This is also another reason why NEET 2021 dates might be shifted from the expected dates.
Another reason for this delay could be the inappropriate time for preparation. Most of the students start their preparations from class 11th. Delay in class 10th results and admissions to class 11th have caused a gap in preparations of NEET and other competitive exams. Similarly, students of class 11th and 12th are deprived of classroom education due to closure of schools and coaching institutes amid COVID-19 pandemic. This has deteriorated their preparations for the NEET 2021 examination.
In such a situation, it seems that the best option for NTA would be to postpone the dates for NEET 2021. Another relief that can be provided is a reduction in the NEET Syllabus for students, similar to the revised curriculum of CBSE, that has been released recently.
The closure of schools and delay in results due to the countrywide lockdown amid COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the academic calendar by over 5 months for students. The Ministry of Human Resource Development received around 1.5k suggestions from educationists on reducing the curriculum from class 9th to 12th. Accepting the suggestions, CBSE has decided to reduce the 30% of class 11th and 12th syllabus. As per the notice, the core concepts have been retained while a few topics from various NCERT and CBSE books have been deleted. Education Minister of India, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal, also tweeted about the reduction in CBSE Syllabus.
📢Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalize syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts.@PMOIndia @HMOIndia @HRDMinistry @mygovindia @transformIndia @cbseindia29 @mygovindia

CBSE confirmed the reduction in the class 11th & class 12th syllabus for 2021. However, there is no clarity on reduction of syllabus for Class 1st to 8th.

What Topics Have Been Deleted For Class 11th and 12th?
CBSE has reduced the syllabus proportionally to the time lost. Classes usually resumed in April for Classes 12th and, in July for Class 11th (after 10th results). Many students want the government to reschedule the academic calendar without removing any topic.
Students can check the revised CBSE 2021 curriculum by visiting this page – CBSE Revised Curriculum 2021. Given below is the list of topics and chapters removed from the syllabus of PCB for Class 11th and 12th.
- Topics/Chapters removed from Physics – Check here
- Topics/Chapters removed from Chemistry – Check here
- Topics/Chapters removed from Biology – Check here
The reduction is being appraised by many students while a few are criticising this move. On one hand this reduction will help students to focus on core topics effectively, while on the other hand, it could also mean less knowledge of certain topics.

How Will This Impact NEET 2021 Syllabus?
NTA or MHRD has not announced any reduction in syllabus for the NEET 2021 exam or JEE Main 2021. NEET syllabus has been very similar to the CBSE curriculum in the past few years. However, there are some topics which are crucial to learn advanced concepts. Due to possible differences in the curriculum now, students might have to depend on the coaching institutes for grasping these advanced concepts.
NTA has clarified that there is no reduction in the syllabus for current year exams. NEET 2020 has already been postponed until 13th September 2020 due to exponential growing cases of the COVID-19 disease. Coaching Institutes usually start classes as early as April but are currently offering online classes to students, which also started around April 2020. While these institutes are trying to cover all the topics, it is yet questionable whether subsidising knowledge will help the students or deter their overall education quality?
