It is essential to read the NEET guidelines before sitting for the examination. Never choose two responses to a single question on the OMR sheet. If you do this, whether intentionally or unwittingly, the entire question will be disqualified and this will result in negative marking.

Avoid Multiple Response


You should not try your luck by answering questions you don’t know. You may feel that your answer sheet is incomplete and that you haven’t attempted many questions, but the best thing to do is to leave questions unanswered without taking a chance on them.

No Guesses


When a question paper is handed out to students in the exam hall, many of them become anxious about the questions they do not know. This will have an instant serious effect on those candidates, and they may lose attention, leading to a poor result.

Do not begin solving the paper by answering the most difficult questions. This will waste a lot of your time and cause a poor start.  You might not be able to finish your NEET-UG paper on time. As a result, all NEET candidates are advised not to waste their time.

Don’t Waste Time
