Biology, Physics & Chemistry Preparation for NEET

Preparing for the NEET exam involves a lot of planning and dedication. Due to its vast syllabus, it is recommended to follow a planned and systematic approach in completing the course. The first step towards NEET preparation is to understand the pre-requisites for the examination. You must thoroughly scan the syllabus of NEET. Besides the syllabus, you must make a note of the weightage of various subjects, so that you can plan your NEET preparation. Get an idea about the exam pattern by scanning a few previous years' question papers. Start by clearing the basics of Physics, Chemistry and Biology subjects. It is always better that you understand the concepts before moving to the depth of the topic. If you are preparing for the NEET exam during your academics, ensure not to ignore board exams to be eligible to appear in NEET 2020. Since the NEET exam includes the NCERT syllabus of Class 11 and 12, it is ideal to start the preparation of NEET from Class 11 to minimize the pressure of corresponding board exams and NEET preparation.

As per the sources, among all the three subjects, Biology is the easiest to attempt, and Physics is relatively tough. The difficulty level of Chemistry has been identified as moderate. After identifying areas of strength and areas of improvement in each subject, aspirants should create a timetable and plan preparation time for each subject in a day. As per the syllabus, aspirants should invest 100% time in Biology preparation, while 85% of attention should be devoted to chemistry and 75% to physics.

In the Physics section, theoretical questions are easier to attempt, and numerical questions are more difficult. In the NEET Biology section, the Zoology section is considered easier than Botany. Mechanics and Electrostatics are the two prominent topics in the physics section. While in Chemistry, the question paper is dominated by reactions. Many reaction-based questions are being asked in Chemistry and Biology contains questions from both Botany and Zoology.

Chapter-wise Weightage

There is always a dilemma on what topic to focus more rather than wasting time on less important topics. The chapter-wise weightage will help in the preparation of NEET which is evaluated based on the analysis of previous years’ question papers. This will allow the candidates to identify the importance of a topic and the number of marks it is likely to fetch. In terms of the weightage, biology has double the weightage (360 marks) in comparison to physics (180 marks) and chemistry (180 marks). Find below the weightage of each chapter from Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.
