This year, India will surpass China with an expected growth of 7.7 per cent, a jump of almost 1.5 per cent from the projection made in January, according to a new UN report.
“India is now projected to grow by 7.6 per cent in 2015 and 7.7 per cent in 2016, surpassing the growth of China,” said the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs(UNDESA) report.
Earlier in January, the UNDESA report had stated that the GDP of India will be 6.2 in this year.
“This revision, mostly reflects a higher growth trajectory in India, where the recent changes in methodology and data sources have resulted in a considerably higher official growth figures for the past two years,” said the latest report.
The recent UN report concurred with reports from other international companies like World Bank and the International monetary fund(IMF), that India will have a faster growth rate in the future.
“Overall, I think the authorities in India have done a very good job over the past two years and this is actually reflected in some indicators,” Ingo Pitterle, a UNDESA Economic Affairs Officer and India expert said.
“In 2013 India was grouped among the fragile economies of Turkey, South Africa, Indonesia and Brazil. And now, you look at the same variables, they look very different,” Pitterle said.
“When you look at the currencies side, the Indian Rupee is the only currency that has held up well here, which is a sign of confidence by investors and the international community in the Indian economy”, he said.
The report also pointed out to string of factors to give a clear view that India was having a very sustainable economic condition.
“The rupee has done better than most currencies, inflation is down, monetary policy is prudent, current account deficit has declined, external imbalances have reduced and oil prices have softened”, the report said.
NEET Examination is organized every year for the students who aspire to study graduate medical courses like MBBS, BHMS, BAMS, and BDS in the prestigious medical colleges of India.
The NEET paper consists of three sections Physics, Chemistry, and Biology; with a total of 720 marks- of which 50% weight is given to biology, and rest 25% to each of physics and chemistry. Nowadays, more than 3000 students secure over 600+ marks; which means the students have good command over all the three sections. So, you need to be well enough in all the three papers to secure a good rank in NEET exam, and by putting a little extra effort one can turn their dreams to the reality of securing a seat in top medical colleges.
Chemistry being one of the top scoring subjects, an aspirant can maximize the chances of getting good rank by dedicating additional time to this subject, during their preparation. First thing that you need to do is to go through the NCERT textbooks of XI and XII and while doing you have to know how to read between the lines. This will help you clear the basic concepts and cover every topic which is considered important from the NEET point of view. If you manage to gain good command over the NCERTs, then you can start reading some high-level books like Modern’s ABC book of chemistry, Concise inorganic Chemistry by JD LEE etc. Avoid being selective. Read the topics included in the syllabus thoroughly and remember the formulas. Remembering the formulae will help to answer the question that are directly asked which in turn will save your time, and by doing so you can give your time to the questions that are

Practice the numerical from physical chemistry and derivations has to be practiced multiple times. Remember each and every point from inorganic part as most questions are directly asked from that part. In organic chemistry, understand the mechanism and practice them a number of times. Follow these steps and you will for sure get 130+ in Chemistry.
During the examination, avoid attempting the questions from the topics which you are not sure of and attempt these questions only when your total attempt count is low.
