Revision in simple words can be explained as Revisiting the concepts learnt. Revision plays an inevitable role while preparing for a competitive exam like NEET. Experts suggest two main advantages of revision. The first one being a recollection of concepts and the second being boosting confidence. Toppers often claim revision as their secret to topping the NEET Rank list.
The majority of the students who are preparing for the NEET exam often fail to understand the importance of revision and often end up in a state of depression wherein they question their recollecting capacity.
It is at this point that students find the Basidia Learning app as their best companion. Concepts, purely based on NCERT are well segregated and explained in simple language so as to make the process of learning easy. Basidia app has an exclusive segment on revision wherein revisions can be scheduled soon after completing a set of MCQs or Mock tests.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts NEET (UG) once in every year. The competition for the NEET exam is beyond imagination since every year around 15 lakhs of students appear for the NEET exam. The huge number of applicants itself proves the competition rate.
What is Revision?
As mentioned earlier, revision can be considered as revisiting the learnt concepts. According to educationalists, revision means ‘to read things again’. The word revision can be split into two- “Re” meaning again and “vision” meaning see. It is important that you need to read and understand the concepts at least once before revision because only then revision makes sense.
Why is Revision important for NEET Preparation?
The revision process is an essential aspect of NEET preparation. The habit of revising should build in time from day one of your preparation. Lack of proper revision makes the entire effort put in vain as the students would not be able to recollect concepts.
The importance of NEET revision can be given as follows:
- Brushing up of concepts studied earlier
- Better understanding of the concepts
- Better recollection of concepts
- Improves retaining capacity
- Improves subject knowledge
How to Revise for NEET 2021?
Revision is the key to success in the NEET exam. There are certain strategies to be followed to make revisions effective and efficient. Given below are some of the revision techniques followed by the NEET toppers during their days of NEET preparation.
1. Make a Revision schedule
The first step before beginning your preparation for the NEET exam is that you need to draft a timetable for yourself. It is important to allocate two slots, particularly for revision. The time slots can be based on your convenience but it is advisable to have one revision slot in the morning, before beginning the day’s preparation and one in the evening, at the end of the day’s preparations.
2. Use Notes wisely
Preparation of notes while studying a particular concept is very essential. These notes alone would suffice for revision. While preparing notes keep the below points in mind:
- Notes should be neat and tidy
- Try to break down complex sentences and write them in simple sentences, preferably in the form of bullets.
- Highlight important points
- Assign a separate notebook for formulas
- Use different colour pens while writing headings or subheadings
3. Be thorough with NCERT
The base for NEET preparation is considered to be NCERT textbooks. Frequent revision of NCERT textbooks of Physics, Biology and Chemistry is found to be an efficient method for better recollection of concepts.
4. Practice, practice and practice
Practice as many questions as you can during the revision slot. This will help you judge how good you are at remembering concepts and formulas. If you are unable to recollect, you can refer to your notes and make concepts clear in a better way.
5. Resolution of doubts
It is only when you revise certain concepts, you will get to think deeper about the subject and most often you end up with a variety of questions, to which you may not be able to find an answer. In such instances, do not hesitate to seek help from your teachers or friends. Do not pile up your doubts. It is a must to get all your doubts cleared from the previous concept before moving on to a new concept.
6. Do not cheat yourself
Never keep things pending for the next day. Students often say “I will do it tomorrow”, but unfortunately tomorrow never comes. Missing a day’s revision messes up your entire preparation plan. Piling up concepts for the next day would only help you in building up unwanted stress and anxiety. Revise daily and keep stress at bay.
