JEE or NEET Preparation for State Board Students

How to Prepare for NEET from Class 11 – Preparation Strategy & Tips

The Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) and the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) are competitive exams conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). A high JEE Main score can increase your chances of getting into a top engineering institute, while more NEET marks can help you secure a seat in one of India’s top medical colleges.

In India, students from ICSE, CBSE and several state boards appear for these exams to secure admission in a reputed college. However, if being a student from a state board is bothering you, don’t worry.

Just because your syllabus differs from the NCERT syllabus followed by CBSE students, it doesn’t mean you cannot compete well in JEE 2021 or NEET 2021. Study materials such as JEE Main sample papers, NEET notes and other important learning materials are within your reach. So, let’s look at some of the highly effective IIT-JEE and NEET preparatory resources for state board students.

Before we begin with the preparatory resources, here’s a tip to overcome the syllabus dilemma for state board students:

If you check the topics in the JEE Main syllabus and NEET syllabus, you’ll find that most topics have already been covered in your state board syllabus. Mark the topics which are not present in your state board syllabus to set aside the list of extra topics that you need to study for these exams.

Clear concepts from your state board books and go through the extra topics in the NCERT textbooks.

Another thing to note is that you may find extra topics in JEE Main Chemistry. For JEE Main Maths and JEE Main Physics, the topics are part of your state board syllabus.

Be careful not to study the same topics from various textbooks because you may end up getting confused or laidback. Instead, just follow NCERT solutions to practise the different types of problems related to concepts which are part of the extra topics. In this way, you can prepare for these exams without worrying about syllabus topics.

Some of the top JEE Main and NEET preparatory resources for state board students are listed below:
