2. Know the Important Topics for NEET Physics: Preparation of NEET physics requires candidates to possess knowledge about the topics which carry more weightage than others based on analysis of previous year question papers. This strategy can prove to be very helpful to candidates wondering as to how to prepare for NEET Physics.

 

NEET Physics Important Topics

  • Mechanics

  • Electrodynamics

  • Modern Physics

  • Heat and Thermodynamics

  • Optics

  • Simple Harmomic Motion

  • Waves

 

3. Build Conceptual Clarity: Candidates preparing for NEET Physics must always begin with a clear understanding of the concepts involved. In addition to learning the theoretical part of the concept, one must also learn to integrate the knowledge of the concepts in solving multiple choice questions and numerical based problems.

 

4. Choose Your Preparation Material: The main prep material for NEET Physics should be the NCERT. Candidates preparing for NEET Physics must ensure that they learn all the concepts included in the syllabus ad solve all the numericals including those covered in the example section of the NCERT. Additionally, candidates should refer to these books mentioned below to for practicing numericals and understanding how the concepts are applied.

 

  • NCERT Physics Class XI & Class XII

  • Concepts of Physics by H. C. Verma

  • Objective Physics By DC Pandey

  • Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick and Walker

  • Fundamental Physics by Pradeep

  • Problems in General Physics by IE Irodov

  • Objective NCERT at Your Fingertips (Physics) by MTG

5. Master Formulas: When it comes to NEET physics, formulas form an integral part of preparation. It is necessary that candidates know and learn all the formulas. One should develop a habit of maintaining a notebook with all the important formulas and their associated concepts.

6. Practice: It is an undeniable fact that NEET Physics preparation requires intense practice. Be it formulas, or numericals everything has to be thoroughly practiced. Regular practice introduces one to varied kinds of questions and also helps in learning to implement the concepts while solving the questions. Candidates should also practice solving previous year question papers of NEET Physics.

7. Time Yourself: Time is a very important factor in case of NEET Physics. Candidates must try and solve the NEET Physics question paper within a limited time frame. This will help in developing speed and boost confidence for the actual exam day.

8. Solve Mock Tests: Aspirants must solve mock tests online to have an idea of the actual exam day scenario. A host of practice centres are to be set up by the NTA that would be accessible even on Saturdays and Sundays. Since NEET will be held online for the first time in 2019, candidates are advised to take up as many mock tests as possible.

How to Prepare for NEET Physics - Topper Insights

NEET 2018 AIR 1, Kalpana Kumari, who scored 171 out of 180 in the subject, shares her take on NEET Physics and says, “Physics is lengthy so I tried to give more time to this section especially to chapters like Rotation”.

Himanshu Sharma, NEET 2018 AIR 3 discusses his strategy on how to prepare for NEET Physics and says, “Physics was my weakest subject. The toughest topics for me in Physics were thermodynamics and mechanics. I gained confidence in Physics with thorough practice and gradually gained confidence that I would be able to score good marks in the same”. Himanshu scored 170 out of 180 in NEET Physics.

Discussing his views on NEET Physics, NEET 2018 AIR 7, Krishna Ashish Agrawal who scored 170 out of 180 in the subject, says, “Physics was a little tricky for me so I tried to pay more attention to this section. Mechanics under Physics section was the toughest topic for me. I had a prepared schedule for each section and I tried to closely follow till the last days. I studied for 6-7 hours each day and believed in my teachers whatever knowledge they imparted me I followed it.”

 

How to Prepare for NEET Physics – What Experts Say

“For Physics, getting well-versed with the formulas is pertinent. Make a chapter-wise formula chart and practice as many questions as possible to get the important formulas at your fingertips. The most important topics in Physics include Mechanics and Electricity.” says academic expert and Head of T.I.M.E, Chennai, Anand Nagarajan.

Important study areas in NEET Physics have been analyzed by expert Aakash Chaudhary, Director of Aakash Education Services, who says, “On an average, 85% of the questions asked in NEET have an easy or average difficulty level. A large share of such questions is formula-based. Make a chapter-wise chart of all the formulae in Physics and pin it in front of your study table. It will be beneficial if you also learn all the relations as doing so will save a lot of time during the final exam. Emphasise on topics such as ‘System of Particle and Rotational Motion’, ‘Current Electricity’, ‘Semiconductor Electronics’, ‘Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter’ and ‘Optics’.”
