Physics is a subject of concern for many candidates preparing for AIPMT 2016, which is scheduled to be conducted on May 1. According to experts, the paper is tough because questions are application oriented, which means nature of questions are usually based on how a thing works rather what a thing is.

It is not only the variety of theories, derivatives and mathematical equation that Physics pose, but the right applications of concepts of the same make it vital for scoring good marks in AIPMT or other medical entrance exams.

Majority of the candidates who appeared for AIPMT last year found Physics to be the toughest among all the other sections. The paper was lengthy and mostly numerical based. Most of the questions came from Electrodynamics, Mechanics and Modern Physics.

“The physics paper in AIPMT 2015 was difficult. The difficultly was high as compared to the previous year. The question booklet had 44.4% (20) questions from class 12 and 55.6% (25) questions from class 11. Questions asked from class 12 are generally difficult than class 11”, says Aakash Chaudhry, Director AESPL (Aakash Educational Services).


Here Careers360 brings you a detailed picture on Physics in AIPMT based on last year’s paper analysis:


Important Topics of Physics in AIPMT:

The physics section of AIPMT roughly covers the following chapters:

  • 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

Focus on Concepts of Physics:

According to Aakash Chaudhry, some of the important sections 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 have clear concepts in these areas. It is all about clearing concepts and implementing these concepts and procedures in solving maximum MCQs in entrance exams. This is what works in AIPMT”, he says.

According to toppers candidates from Biology background must emphasize on theoretical questions related to modern Physics because they are too easy and having very less calculations. For example in Heat and thermodynamics chapter majority of questions are on P-Y graph or principles of thermodynamics which are easy to solve.


Books Recommended for Preparation:

Khushi Tiwari AIR 2, AIPMT 2015 recommends that NCERT books of Class 11 & 12 helped her a lot in AIPMT preparation. She says, “I have found NCERT books to be very simple and helpful, especially in Physics and Biology subjects. I found NCERT books easy in comprehending concepts as compared to other books. I used to read these books regularly along with other study materials”. 

Tejaswin Jha who secured AIR 1 in AIPMT 2014 also emphasizes on importance of NCERT books for AIPMT preparation. He says, “NCERT is the best way to clear your base and concepts in subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Once the base is clear, scoring in AIPMT is easier for anyone. One must study NCERT books seriously along with other reference materials to score good marks in the entrance exam.”

Below are the some recommended books for Physics Preparation: 

  • 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

  • New Simplified Physics: A Reference Book for Class XI and XII by S.L Arora

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:

  • Improves your speed in solving the question paper.

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

  • 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 2016

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

Analysis of Physics Question Paper in AIPMT 2015:

Analysis of Physics Question Paper from Career Point:

The question paper of Physics was above average in terms of difficulty level. The question booklet had 25 questions asked from class 11 syllabus while 20 questions asked from class 12 syllabus. If compared to previous year AIPMT exam, this year physics’ paper is little tricky and around 8 to 10 questions were very difficult to solve.

Hii aspirants

let me clear your doubt.

No there is no question from gk and English grammar section in neet 2020.

There will be 120 Multipe choice questions in exam which will belong to physics, chemistry and biology only.

I hope my answer will help you out

Good luck


how can I prepare for neet from now to score more than 600+ marks . can u help me to make a proper timetable

Apoorva Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019
Hello dear student,
It's all in our head to be very honest if you will study for Neet now also then also you can get really very good marks and you can qualify Neet with flying colours. It's just that whatsoever you want to study and you are preparing you should prepare it with full concentration that will help you to score good marks. When you make a plan of a day and you choose some topic that you go going to study today of the day you are studying so make a habit of solving around 50 MCQs of a single topic so that it broaden up your mind about the questions that can be asked in the exam. And after this it's better if you solve previous year questions as is it gives you an idea what sort of questions are important and what kind of question can come in exam that really helps. I hope this was helpful to you.
Best wishes

how many marks need to sit in the exam of neet

Apoorva Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019
Hello dear student,
As you want to know the minimum eligibility criteria of marks in class 12 boards to give neet . Dear student as you have not mentioned your category so I would be telling you about the general and reserved category criteria kindly look for yours.
For general category student minimum marks required to give Neet is 50% marks as an aggregate in physics chemistry and biology while this changes for the reserved category students. which is for SC/ ST they need to get at least of 40% marks in physics chemistry and biology as an aggregate I hope the information is helpful to you.
Best wishes

before neet form is there any other forms for being a repeater?

Apoorva Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019
Hello dear student,
Earlier there were so many different exams to become a doctor but now need is the only exam for the medical student to get admission in different areas of medicines including MBBS, BDS, BHMS, Ayurveda medicines, unani medicines extra. So even if you are a repeater that is not a problem you just have to give Neet and you have to prepare only for Neet and on the basis of marks that you will get in NEET it will tell you in which stream of medicine you can take admission. I hope you are aware of this information that aims and jipmer are the exams who used to take separate exams now they will also merge with Neet. I hope this was helpful
Best wishes

I have 4 year gap between 10th and 12th(nios) will my neet form will be accepted or not

Aditya kumar Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019
Hello there!
No , there will be no problem , you are eligible for neet even if you have 4 year gaps between your 10th and 12th as to be eligible for Neet the condition is that a general category student needs to have passed class 12th with 50 % in pcb aggregate,  while it's 40% for obc , sc, st.  So , if you fulfil this with criteria then you are eligible for neet,  also there's no upper age limit for neet so you don't need to worry about that as well.
Prepare well for neet.
