Navigating NEET Preparation Amidst Board Exams

As NEET aspirants gear up for the upcoming entrance exam, many find themselves grappling with the dual challenge of preparing for the Class XII board exam and the competitive NEET simultaneously. Government school students like Sheela A. and T. Harini have had to put their NEET preparations on hold to focus on the board exams, with some considering a gap year if unable to qualify.

Compounded by the vast State Board syllabus and the learning loss experienced during the pandemic, students face hurdles in strengthening their conceptual foundation. Access to NCERT books, crucial for NEET preparation, remains limited for many, highlighting the disparities in educational resources. Despite these challenges, students persevere, seeking alternative learning avenues and government coaching to navigate the complexities of NEET preparation amidst board exams.
