NEET or National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is one of the prime entrance tests for medical students. The test is critical to qualify as it opens several potential options for students who are aspiring to pursue undergraduate or postgraduate medical courses in private or government medical colleges. The preparation of the NEET Physics is often considered intimidating, as it involves a wide syllabus with critical theoretical aspects and related numerical problems. The NEET Physics question paper comprises questions from the Class 11th and Class 12th syllabus, which makes it a complex subject, overall.

NEET Physics section comprises a total of 45 questions which sum up to a total of 180 marks. The marks obtained in NEET Physics section have high weightage in the overall result of the examination. These marks form the base of admission procedure of the best MBBS and BDS courses in reputed institutions.

In order to prepare for NEET Physics, a student has to focus on every segment of the syllabus and develop a thorough understanding of all the theoretical and numerical concepts. In this blog, we will discuss more NEET Physics section and help you prepare for NEET 2019:

NEET Physics Topics:

When preparing for NEET Physics, it is important to have the practical knowledge of what you are preparing; otherwise, you would mug up everything, which does not help when dealing with the numerical aspect of the subject.  To start with, let us know the different topics under NEET Physics:

  • Mechanics
  • Electrodynamics
  • Modern Physics
  • Heat and Thermodynamics
  • Optics
  • SHM and Waves

Each topic has different weightage and thus while preparing them, you must know which topic you need to focus more. Here is a chart with the weightage details of each NEET Physics topic:

S. No. Topic Weightage
1 Mechanics 28.89%
2 Electrodynamics 22.22%
3 Modern Physics 17.78%
4 Heat and Thermodynamics 11.11%
5 Optics 11.11%
6 SHM and Waves 8.89%

How to prepare for NEET Physics? Preparation tips on Physics for NEET

Tip 1: Know the exam pattern and the syllabus

To start with, check the exam pattern and the entire syllabus that you have to prepare for NEET. This will help you make a strategy for the preparation. To advance the preparation, analyze the marking scheme for the physics section.

Tip 2: Understand the concepts:

Mechanics, Heat & Thermodynamics, Electrodynamics, and Modern Physics are the highest rated topics for NEET Physics, according to the analysis of the yesteryear’s papers. It is important that you should thoroughly go through these concepts so that you can prepare for the numerical.
