Importance of Doubt Clearing

Read and understand the NCERT books for better performance in your NEET 2020 exam because the NEET exam pattern is the same as the NCERT Books of Class 11th and 12th for the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.
Enrolling yourself for coaching classes has long been considered the first step towards cracking the NEET, however, this trend is starting to slip. Recent studies show that, for the students who cleared the NEET, the number of students who had joined a coaching class is lower than the number of students who managed the feat with self-study.

Preparation for NEET requires a lot of hard work and determination, be ready to even go through many sleepless nights & missed birthdays. Imagine yourself with Dr. in front of your name to comeback from any setback on preparation. Simply completing the syllabus is not enough! If you want to have an edge over your counterparts you need to step up your game.
This means practicing a variety of problems and revising diligently while following a meticulous study plan that recognizes your strengths and takes care of all your weaknesses. To get your doubts solved or questions checked there is no better place than Kunduz!
