​Low marks in NEET 2022? Options other than MBBS you can consider

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, or NEET, is the main entrance examination for students seeking admission to medical courses in India. A low score in NEET can be disappointing, but it doesn't mean that your dreams of becoming a doctor are over. There are many other options available to you, such as BAMS, BHMS, B.Sc in Nursing, and B.Pharm. Here's a look at why these options might be a good fit for you.
 

Reasons why NEET scores might be low in 2022


» The pandemic as a reason for low NEET scores
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on all aspects of life, including education. The closure of schools and colleges across the country has disrupted the academic calendar and put immense pressure on students who are preparing for competitive exams like NEET.
The pandemic has also resulted in a decrease in the quality of teaching, as many teachers have been forced to switch to online mode of teaching which is not very effective. Moreover, many students come from underprivileged backgrounds and do not have access to quality resources or proper guidance which puts them at a disadvantage.
All these factors are likely to result in lower-than-expected scores in NEET 2022.
 

» Changes in NEET syllabus as a reason for low scores
Another reason why NEET scores might be low in 2022 is due to changes in the syllabus. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) for admission into MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, and veterinary courses offered by various colleges across India.
The syllabus for NEET is decided by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and it is reviewed every year. In 2020, there was a major change in the syllabus with several topics being removed and new topics being added. This created confusion among students as they did not know what to expect in the exam.
As a result of this change, many students were not able to properly prepare for the exam which is likely to lead to lower scores in 2022.
 

» Lack of proper NEET preparation as a reason for low scores
Another reason why NEET scores might be low in 2022 is due to lack of proper preparation by students. Preparation for such a competitive exam requires dedication, hard work, and consistency over a period of time. However, many students start preparing only a few months before the exam and this is not enough time to cover the entire syllabus thoroughly.
In addition, many students do not have access to quality resources or experienced teachers which hampers their preparation process. As a result, they are not able to perform well in the exam leading to lower-than-expected scores.
