Practice to become better
Practice is the most important activity. While you complete the topics from NCERT, keep practicing objective type questions from NCERT Xtract. Don’t leave the practice part for end when you complete the syllabus. Keep practicing questions from topics you have completed. Mock tests, practice papers and sample papers are available online.
Another thing which you need to follow is analyse the mock test when you are done. Without analysis you will not be able to find out your weak areas for NEET exam.
On last note, please remember that NEET paper being Biology-centric doesn’t mean that you can ignore Physics and Chemistry. Both subjects are scoring and have to be prepared well
