Amid lockdown when even the coaching institutes, schools and every educational institute is closed, students should rely on the mock test. Sharma also said, “Students are advised to practice mock series during last months. One should try to appear for a mock as per the time of the real exam, so their body clock is also tuned-in for the NEET. However, practicing mocks alone is not enough, one should analyse their answers, where they have gone wrong, what are their shortcoming – is it lack of concept clarity or focus of time management and then work on it.”
