The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET-UG is an entrance examination in India, for students who wish to study graduate medical course (MBBS) and dental course (BDS) in government or private medical colleges and dental colleges respectively in India. NEET-UG (Undergraduate), for MBBS and BDS courses, is currently conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE).

With the number of medical aspirants on the rise with each passing year, NEET is evidently an extremely competitive exam. The competition is only getting tough with each coming year. There is no trick or short cut to clear this exam except for being thoroughly prepared foe any kind of question.

There have been several students who have fared successfully in NEET without enrolling in any coaching institute. Every student is unique in their style of studying. Each student has an approach towards the subject that is unique to that particular person. Some might go berserk looking at the syllabus in its entirety. Coaching Centres are a boon for such students.

There are a lot of factors to decide upon while coming up with a preparation strategy. These include the chapters one would like to start with, devising a reasonable timetable that one can comfortably stick to, adequate break times and enough time at the end for revision.

A NEET aspirant must firstly understand what it takes to beat the spiraling competition. He/she must be up to the task as this is only an uphill battle. In fact, only in the year 2017, over 8 lakh students had applied for approximately 30,000 MBBS seats within the ambit of NEET.

Most NEET Coaching Centres offer 1 year /2 year programs or crash courses for preparation. By carefully choosing a programme that caters to your requirements, one can reap the benefits of studying under the guidance of an experienced individual. They will also be able to give you a strong foundation on the subjects. You will also feel more confident towards the end of the course.

One must weigh pros and cons before taking any decision. Coaching Centres make for a strong argument:

Coaching centres will follow a set schedule and procedure. They will have a focused time table to cater to different subjects, revision sessions, Q&A sessions, mock tests, exam schedule etc. There will be proper discipline in one's way of study.

Self-study is more suitable for those who still want to move along at their own pace. However, you should keep in mind that it can be difficult to stay in line with self-made schedules.

There is a large variety of books meant for NEET available in the market. A major dilemma that students face is what book or material they should refer.

In coaching centers, the experts refer relevant reference books and past year papers to create customized study material for their students. 

Students that are preparing on their own must be constantly updated with any changes in the exam pattern, revised syllabus etc. and can refer textbooks recommended by any coaching centre.

They prepare relevant time tables to ensure that students are comfortably able to prepare the entire curriculum. By being a part of coaching centres, concepts like time management can be inculcated in a student.

In some cases, coaching centres can be on the expensive side. Transportation or odd timings might be a problem. However, the pros clearly outweigh the cons. Unless you have a good reason not to join a coaching centre, you should at least give it a go.
