How To Prepare For NEET Physics Section?
For the past two years, Physics was considered to be the toughest section in the NEET exam. It is framed so because, the medical students should be strong with the fundamentals of physics so as to understand the diagnostic procedures and the instruments used in diagnostics.
Based on the analysis of the previous year question papers, NEET physics have more questions from chapters like Dual nature of matter and radiation, Magnetism, Thermodynamics, Work, power, and energy, modern physics, and Mechanical properties,these chapters should be given priority in your study plan whereas, the chapters such as the Semiconductor, kinematics, waves, electric field, and alternating current had lesser number of questions. Mostly the questions were numerical and time consuming.
Physics is a subject which cannot be learnt bye-heart. It can be learnt only by understanding the concepts first and then trying to apply it to your daily life. This will not only improve your analytical skills but also will help you in knowing the right concept to be applied for a right problem.
Apart from the NCERT books, practicing with the HC VERMA’s book; designed especially for the entrance exams will help you in grasping concepts easy and quick.
How To Prepare For NEET Chemistry Section?
In 2016, chemistry was considered the second toughest section as most of the questions were tricky but in 2017, students felt that the paper was moderate in terms of difficulty. However, the questions were still tricky but those who were clear with the concepts felt it easier to attempt. Understanding the basic concepts in chemistry enable the medical students to gain knowledge about the chemical reactions that happen in our body.
Chemistry as a subject is classified into three major portions namely the physical chemistry, organic chemistry, and the inorganic chemistry. Previous year papers have most of the questions from the chapters chemical bonding, basic concepts of chemistry, aldehydes, equilibrium, alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes, ketones and carboxylic acids, and the s, d, and f block elements. These topics should be given priority whereas lesser number of questions were asked from chapters such as Alcohol, phenol, ethers, solutions, haloalkanes and haloarenes.
As you can see, organic chemistry occupies major part of the exam hence preparation should start with that chapter. It actually involves patience in dealing with the concepts as it takes more time to understand them clearly. Apart from the NCERT books, reading the book ‘Organic Chemistry’ by Robert Thornton Morrison will enable you in grasping concepts.

And, the most important chapters according to the experts include: Animal kingdom, Reproduction, and Plant physiology as most of the questions were based on these chapters. Other chapters like Biotechnology and its applications, breathing and exchange of gases, mineral nutrition, digestion and absorption has lesser number of questions.
Almost all of the questions in biology are direct and easy. Thus, reading NCERT books and having a thorough knowledge on the chapters is more than enough to crack the exam.
Apart from the strategy of preparing subject-wise, you should also have an overall strategy of preparation like making a study table, making concepts clear, revising several times, and practicing more number of previous questions along with attempting mock tests will help you in getting a perfect score in the exam.
