Each course obviously requires certain eligibility. The prerequisites to give NEET PG2021 are listed below. All of them are mandatory and not having even one of them fulfilled won’t be counted as eligible.

  • Qualification: Candidates should have an MBBS degree or a provisional pass certificate. The certificate should be approved by the Medical Council of India (MCI).
  • Registration: The candidate should have a permanent registration certificate of the MBBS degree.
  • Experience: The applicant should have at least a year of internship experience by or before 31st March 2021.


NEET PG 2021 has a very vast syllabus and the questions are not known for being straight forward and easy. The preparation should be thorough and wholesome. Here are a few tips to help you prepare and clear NEET PG2021.

  • Planned Studying: Studying is way more effective when you do it systematically. Making a proper study plan or a timetable will give a sense of achievement and confidence at the end of every day.
  • Study Material: NEET is a national level exam and it is not known for being an easy one. You will have to level up.
  • Note making: Whenever you study, make sure you make notes and efficient ones at that. The notes should be such that you can visit them at the time of the exam and they provide a quick recap.
  • Difficult topics first: The logic behind doing the difficult topics first is so that you can revise them before the exam. If you start doing the crucial and difficult topics right before the exam would risk a blackout.
  • Practice: I think this is the most important part of your preparation. You can study all you want, but none of it would be of use if you don’t learn its applications. Practicing more and more would also increase your confidence. You should do as many mock test/sample papers as you can.
  •  Sleep: I know it may seem like cracking NEET would lead to sleepless nights, but your brain needs to work efficiently when you study. Sleep is like the fuel to your brain and without proper sleep, studying would be useless. Students should have at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
