Never Lose Practice: Daily practice should be an integral part of NEET Chemistry preparation. Be it the equations, numericals from thermodynamics/solutions or organic practice; practicing daily is the only key to be able to process it all.

Take Mock Tests Online: With NTA introducing online NEET exams, it is necessary for candidates to solve mock tests online so as to be able to manage the allotted time and get familiar with the real day exam scenario. Aspirants will have the option to practice at the online test centres to be set up by the NTA across the country.

Revise: The more you learn the more you tend to forget. Revision is the only key to help prevent this aspect. Schedule revisions after each topic has been dealt with. Aspirants in Class 12 should continuously keep revising the syllabus of Class 11 to ensure that every topic is still fresh in mind.


How to Prepare for NEET Chemistry – Topper Tips

Rohan Purohit, NEET 2018 AIR 2 shared his preparation strategy with Careers360 where he said, “Initially when I started my NEET preparation, Chemistry was the toughest for me, Organic Chemistry in particular. Organic Chemistry being an applicative concept, my teachers asked me to solve as many problems in order to solidify my concepts.” Efficient practice helped Rohan obtain the perfect score 180 out of 180 in NEET Chemistry.

On a similar note NEET 2018 AIR 1, Kalpana Kumari who scored 160 out of 180 in the subject shared, “In Chemistry, I focused more on the Organic section”. On the other hand NEET 2018 AIR 7, Krishna Ashish Agrawal said, “Inorganic in Chemistry section requires a lot of learning so I focused a lot more on that part”. Krishna scored 165 out of 180 in NEET Chemistry.


Expert Insights on How to Prepare for NEET Chemistry

Expert Aakash Choudhary, Director of Aakash Educational Services, shares his views on how to prepare for NEET Chemistry where he says, “Chemistry is often regarded as the toughest subject by students. On the contrary, it is one of the easiest if you can develop an understanding at the basic level. This can be done by strengthening your concepts through elaborate revision of chapters and individual topics. Begin your preparation with ‘Physical Chemistry’ and treat each and every topic as a chapter in itself. Later, apply your concepts on MCQs and question banks. In ‘Inorganic Chemistry’, before starting a topic, look up to previous years’ question papers to understand which are the topics from which the maximum questions are asked. Repeat the formula chart activity (include formulae of important chemicals and minerals) as done in physics and memorise them daily. Frequently revise topics such as coordination chemistry and p-block chemistry to ensure maximum retention. Keep on trusting NCERT as far as Inorganic Chemistry is concerned. Other topics demand a clarity of concepts. Here, you can take assistance from study materials for additional references. It might take extra effort but you must maintain your confidence and consolidate your concepts. Approach easier sections first and then move on to difficult portions”.


Head of T.I.M.E Chennai and academic expert, Anand Nagarajan says, “In Chemistry, I always advise students to complete the topics of Physical Chemistry first while preparing for NEET. Read the concepts of Physical Chemistry from NCERT, and then test the understanding by practising questions from MCQs and question banks. For Inorganic and organic chemistry, make formula charts as was done for Physics and memorize the formulas and name reactions on daily basis. If any topic is taking extra efforts and time, skip it and approach the easier sections first”.

i have done my 10th from delhi but doing 11 th and 12th from up ...i wanted to know that as i m eligible for participating in neet from up if want admission in college of delhi ..how much will i have to score in neet?

Hello Rishu

Yes, you are eligible to write NEET from UP, even though you want to take admission in a college of Delhi. The admission is taken on the basis of your marks and rank, so it does not matter from which state you have given the exam. But you won't get the benefit of state quota.

Hope it helps you.
