Lack of interest and concentration

Do not ignore NCERT book
Try not to avoid any topic from NCERT books because each topic of your syllabus is very important. 70% of the questions in the NEET exam come from NCERT so, try to cover each and every topic of NCERT.
As we all know that we should not take time for granted and set time duration for our studies. Before starting your preparation, set time duration for at least 6 months to prepare for the exam.
Avoid too many reference books
After completing their NCERT books, students turn towards the reference books for further studies. Try to limit the reference books as different reference books have different methods of approach which creates a lot of confusion.
Don’t disturb your sleeping pattern
