Is Coaching Important For NEET?

Most medical aspirants think of this when they start preparing for the NEET-UG exam. Before answering why coaching classes are important or not for the preparation for NEET, one needs to understand what are the benefits of Coaching classes. How it is helpful to students preparing for the NEET-UG examination.

Are you determined and independent enough to handle the pressure that comes with preparing for a competitive exam such as NEET-UG? Do you feel stressed due to classroom competition? Do you perform well with self-study? Do you have the time and resources to afford a good coaching centre?

Last year around 2.5 lakhs applications were received by NTA for the NEET-UG examination. There is such tough competition to crack the medical entrance cum eligibility examination that you need to be fully prepared and gather all relevant information regarding exam patterns, exam syllabus bifurcated according to topic weightage. Hence, many students prefer to take help from coaching classes as such institutes provide doubt- clearing sessions, mock tests, previous year’s question banks, and tips, and tricks to score well, apart from completing the syllabus in the stipulated time. However, some students feel pressurized by the competition in the coaching institutes and get demotivated by it losing focus on their individual performance. Sometimes students can’t find a suitable coaching institute in their area.

Coaching institutes shift their focus to increase their reputation and goodwill and put unnecessary pressure on students to perform as per their expectations rather than focusing on the individual development of the students and helping them reach their goals.

Can you prepare the whole syllabus on your own?

Before opting for any coaching class whether online or offline, you should have a clear vision of your expectations from these classes. You need to answer the above question for yourself. If you have confidence in preparing the whole syllabus on your own. Self-study is what you’re comfortable with then you can skip coaching classes in your NEET preparations. But if you’re someone who needs to focus on subjects from the ground level and brush up on your basics, we would recommend attending coaching classes, it can be online as well.

Do you have a strong hold on the basics of the subjects in the NEET examination?

If you have a strong understanding of the basics of every subject and you’re confident that you can solve every type of question including numericals and diagrams and labeling, reactions and derivatives then you can skip coaching classes and move on to other difficult topics but don’t underestimate revising the basics from time to time.

Are you determined and independent enough to handle the pressure that comes with preparing for a competitive exam such as NEET-UG?

NEET-UG is a difficult exam not because of its lengthy syllabus but because of its intensive competition ratio. There are lakhs of students who apply for the NEET-UG examination but only a few can even qualify for it. Hence, you need to be absolutely confident that you can qualify for the examination without any additional help.

Do you feel stressed due to classroom competition?

If you feel pressured and discouraged by the cut-throat competition that prevails in coaching classes amongst the students and it makes you feel that you cannot manage time for self-study after school hours and coaching classes then you should opt for online coaching classes.
