IAM a A.P girl I got 81.05 % in Jan nee main 2020 ...I want to prepare better for April sessions but ipe exams are near ....Can my state board preparation is enough for mains ...plz give suggestions

Akshat Sidharth 30th Jan, 2020
Hello Sampath

Congratulations on your score.You have achieved a very decent score but it can be improvised. First of all your board preparations are not enough but it can be the most of it.If you are voraciously preparing for your boards you just need to solve a few previous years papers and try to take some mock tests available online. This much preparation would be enough to let you secure a good percentile in Jee Mains April session.
So prepare hard.

Wish you good luck for your future endeavours.

IAM in class 11 I need to know about what kind of nee books can be prepare for her main and advance

Naufal Mohamed 9th Jan, 2020
Firstly make sure to have a strong foundation in the topics of physics,chemistry and mathematics from your NCERT text book of 11th and 12th grade. This should be more than enough to get you a decent score. It you are aiming for a higher rank then go for HC Verma  for physics and RD Sharma for mathematics. Also do high order thinking level questions from NCERT Exemplar.

my dob is 19 jun 2004 can I give meet 2020

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 3rd Dec, 2019


NEET is a National level Common Entrance test to get admission in various Medical and veterinary Colleges in India to pursue MBBS course. Speaking about the Age eligibility criteria , the candidate must be minimum 17 years of age as of Dec 31,2020. You will be 16 years of age at that time. So you are not eligible to apply for NEET 2020 exam.
