When studying textbooks, actively engage by scribbling down the data on a piece of paper. Writing enhances understanding and retention, even if the notes are messy. Your scribbled notes reflect your own insights, making them more relatable and memorable. Students should scribble every time they read their textbook.

 2) Visualize your data

Visualizing information aids data retention. It can be done by following techniques

(a)    Chunking: Break up long pieces of information into manageable parts for easier recall.

(b)   Mind map and infographics: Create visual representations to associate concepts with images, color and spatial placement.

(c)    Flashcards: Write down information concisely on cards for portable and convenient study sessions.

(d)   Mnemonics: It is techniques to encode and retrieve information, making studying engaging and fun.

Visualization techniques facilitates easier recall. It encourages creativity, allowing students to explore different interpretations and interdependency of concepts.
But, visualization can be time consuming. Student should strike balance between elaboration and efficiency. To make it more effective, student can seek feedback from teachers or guide to ensure accuracy and clarity in their visual representation.

   3) Spaced repetition

Revisit study material at increasing intervals to reinforce memory retention. Utilize techniques like flashcards, mind maps and mnemonics for effective space repetition. Spaced repetition promotes long term memory retention and optimizes study time by focusing on reviewing material when it’s most likely to be forgotten.

  4) Feynman techniques

Teach concepts to others or yourself to identify area of struggle and improve understanding. Teaching encourages active engagement and deepens understanding. Feynman techniques foster peer collaboration and knowledge sharing.

But it does have its own cons. Without external feedback, student may overlook inaccuracies or misunderstanding in their explanations. Seeking help from teachers and guide can help identify and address areas needing improvement.


When following any of the methods practice active recall, i.e., force your brain to recall as much as possible without looking into your notes.

Remember, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to memorization. Mix and match techniques based on subject, difficulty level and personal preference. Avoid coping others’ methods; instead find what works best for you to optimize your study routine and maintain mental well being.

By incorporating these scientifically proven memorization techniques into your NEET preparation you’ll enhance understanding, retention and recall, ultimately paving the way for success in the examination.
