How to Prepare for NEET Physics - Topper Insights

NEET 2019 AIR 2, Bhavik Bansal , who obtained full marks 180 out of 180 in the subject, shares his take on NEET Physics and says, “Physics is lengthy so I tried to give more time to this section especially to chapters like Rotation." Talking about the best books for NEET 2020 Physics, Bhavik shared that, "Students these days try to ignore Physics NCERT, thinking that it is not required. But it is well written and difficult to understand. Another book named as NCERT Exemplar can be considered as the bible for candidates who has Physics as their weaker section."

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’.”

Aniket Sharma 29th Mar, 2020

hi Muppasani,

No according to neet eligibility PASSING Higher secondary (12th ) with the Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology and English subjects, and 50% marks in the qualifying exam is the minimum qualification for general category candidates to take.
By the time the compartment results are announced admission are done in many(almost all) College's but there aresome College's where Seat are still left vacant, one can get admission in these colleges. There are different rules for different colleges/universities regarding compartment.

I hope this answer will help, all the best for the future!!
