The most important undergraduate medical exam of the country, AIPMT 2015 will be held on 3 May, 2015. While all the three sections of the CBSE conducted All India Pre Medical/Dental Test- Physics, Chemistry and Biology are equally tough, Physics is usually the subject that aspirants tend to be most nervous about.

That is generally the case because of the variety of theories and mathematical problems that Physics pose. It is not only about derivatives and formulas but the right applications of the same that makes the preparation for AIPMT 2015 Physics so vital for cracking AIPMT.

 Here Careers360 brings you a detailed picture of the practicing tips for Physics for AIPMT, which features both experts and toppers of previous years.


Get ready for Physics

AIPMT 2015 is a 3-hour Multiple Choice Question based paper. The paper consist of 180 questions in all from Physics, Chemistry Zoology and Botany with each section being allotted 45 questions each.

The physics section of AIPMT roughly covers the following sections:

  • Physical World and Measurement

  •  Kinematics

  •  Laws of Motion

  • Work, Energy and Power

  • Thermodynamics

  • Oscillations and Waves

  • Electrostatics

  • Current Electricity

  • Magnetic Effects of Current and Magnetism

  • Electromagnetic Waves

So, what is the mantra that you should follow to crack this section?

Get your concepts right:

According to Aakash Chaudhry, Director AESPL (Aakash Educational Services Pvt. Ltd.) some of the important areas of physics that an aspirant should focus on are kinematics, laws of motion, electrostatics, magnetic effects of current and modern physics.

“It is imperative that you clear concepts in these areas. It is all about clearing concepts and implementing these concepts and procedures in solving maximum MCQs. This is what works in AIPMT”, he says.


Shailendra Maheshwari, Director (Academics), Career Point says that candidates should be conceptually strong so as to be able to write the answers as per any exam pattern.

“Important Derivations and formulas should be on finger tips”, he says.


According to Mr. Maheshwari, Heat and Thermodynamics, Waves, Optics, Modern Physics are some of the topics in Physics that an aspirant should focus on.

Keys areas of focus in Physics:

According to Mr. Maheshwari of Career Point the key areas for focus in Physics are:

1. Theoretical Questions related to Modern Physics are too easy and having very less calculations, therefore,  students of biology must emphasize on that.

2. In Heat and thermodynamics majority of questions are of P-Y graph or principles of thermodynamics which are easy to solve

3. First solve direct formula based questions of any topic.

4. In case if any question is of lengthy calculation then first try to solve through approximation or as per options.


Open your books

According to Mr. Chaudhry, as part of a strong preparation aspirants must thoroughly read NCERT books as most of the questions in AIPMT 2015 are from NCERT. “Aspirants should go through the NCERT textbook word by word and should have complete mastery over it. Aspirants must do a lot of practice in solving the objective problems based on NCERT pattern” says the Director.

NCERT books should, in fact, form the very basis of your preparation. Tejaswin Jha who topped AIPMT 2014 with 682 marks out of 720 says that studying NCERT books rather than heavy weight expensive study material was the mantra behind his success.

Below are the books you should refer to as part of your preparation for physics:

  • Concepts of Physics by H.C.Verma

  • NCERT Physics: CBSE PMT set of 3 Volumes by Anil Aggarwal

  • Concept of Competition Physics for CBSE PMT by Aggarwals

  • NCERT- Physics Part 1 and Part 2

Solve previous year’s question papers:

 One of the best ways to prepare for the Physics is by referring to and solving previous year’s question papers. As, Thermodynamics, laws of motion and modern physics are some of the popular topics aspirants are bound to find many questions from these topics.

Practicing from previous year’s papers not only familiarizes you with the AIPMT physics paper pattern but also improves your speed and accuracy.

This is why you should practice from previous year’s question papers:

  1. Improves your speed in solving the question paper.

  2. Gives you an idea about the pattern and kind of questions one can expect from physics.

  3. Generally, questions in AIPMT are not direct but framed in such a way that it requires multiple theories and calculations to reach a conclusion. Solving question papers gives you an idea about the variety of questions that can come in AIPMT 2015.

  4. Usually, question papers follow a similar pattern. You can also plan your preparation strategy by checking the questions, which came in previous years.

Mock test:

Mock tests are the most important aspect of your AIPMT 2015 preparation strategy. Mock tests are and easy way to increase your speed and efficiency. Most importantly, it gives you an idea of where you stand in your preparation and what you need to achieve to crack one of the most vital undergraduate medical exam in the country.

Lovedeep Singh Dhingra scored perfect 180 marks in Physics and fetched an overall score of 680 out of 720 in AIPMT 2014 says, “Solving sample papers and mock tests helped me mentally prepare for actual AIPMT exam day. On the exam day, I could control my nervousness during the exam duration as I was already accustomed to exam time pressure during my mock tests.”

i had bilateral profound hearing loss and got cochlear i eligible for neet under pwd..?...?. am i actually eligible for neet 2020?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Dear Banu, under Rights for persons with Disabilities under Benchmark disabilities, auditory disability should not exceed 40% to be eligible for PWD reservation in NEET. Now you haven't mentioned the disability percentage and so that it makes it difficult to guess. MCI has approximately 20  approved disability assessment centres which are listed in You can get assessed at one of these centres. If the disability is more than 40% then you are not eligible for PWD reservation but will be considered for category reservation if applicable.


m i eligible for neet 2020 counselling because i have a betterment marksheet from ahsec ie state board with 60% aggregate in pcb i m feeling very depessed plz help me out

Aditya kumar Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019
Hello there!
Yes , of course you are eligible for neet with 60% in pcb aggregate in your improvement exam as to be eligible for Neet, a general category candidate needs 50% aggregate in pcb, while it is only 40 % for sc, obc and st category. So , with your 60% aggregate in pcb you are eligible for neet and you will not face any problem. Work hard and prepare well for neet and clear it with flying colours and fulfil your dream of becoming a doctor. Good luck

Please confirm if NEET 2020 is the entrance exam for applying for JIPMER and AIIMS for 2020. Has separate entrance for these 2 institutions been scrapped?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019
Hello there!


Yes , now there will be no separate exams for AIIMS ug and Jipmer ug, these exams have been scrapped off , now these exams have been included in neet and now from 2020 , admission to all the medical colleges of India including all the aiims and Jipmer will be basis of the marks obtained by students in neet. So , now neet is the only gateway to all all medical colleges of India,  so you need to prepare well for it. Good luck
