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’.”

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 15th Aug, 2020
if any particular exam cancel and you have gotten the admit card for any fixed date so the exam conducting authorities will provide you the admit card again if the exam will going  to conduct again, in this situation the funda of issuing admit card is on the basis of shurity that the exam is going to held on  that particular date so I would suggest you to  prepare according to the coming date don't consider that it is going to be cancel or not that will help you to fix your mind.
Best of luck.

I got 8.8 grade in my class 10.In my neet application i should convert that grade into percentage and i should enter that percentage.By converting i m getting 83%.But instead of 83% i entered 8.8.Will i face any problem during addmission process?

Anurag Khanna 14th Aug, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

For NEET application your 12th percentage matters which should be above 60% for General category now if you have entered your CGPA by mistake then it would be accepted and if it would not be accepted then you will receive an e-mail from NTA requesting you to made the required changes and if you have not received an e-mail till now then they might have accepted your application or it is under process.

You need not worry because now this is the headache of NTA because if they will find any kind of error in your application they would inform you and request you to correct that error and if you will not made it by the time then your application will be rejected.

So just stay focused n your preparations.

I hope this information cleared your doubts.

Good Luck!!


what will be the documents required in neet if I am a bsc 2nd year student

Chhavi Srivastava 14th Aug, 2020
Hi , in order to get eligible for NEET UG you just need to be minimum of 17 years of age on or before 31 december of the year of applying . Talking about marks you need to score a minimum of 50% which is an aggregate marks of physics chemistry and biology in 10+2 if you belong to unreserved category,45% for PWD and 40% for SC/ST/OBC. There is no upper age limit for NEET UG exam . So for NEET you need only your 10+2 marks and documents like
Neet admit card
Neet score card
10 class certificate for date of birth
Caste certificate of applicable
PWD certificate of applicable
Id proof
Provisional allotment letter

neet 2020 exemption for abroad is possible ??to cancel the neet 2020 in abroad.pls tell

priyaankasarkar Student Expert 14th Aug, 2020
There was a PIL filed in the Supreme Court requesting for an exemption from NEET for foreign admissions to MBBS. And the Supreme Court has directed MCI to look into it. It might take a while for any response. At this point in time, there is no clear notification regarding the same. A parents body has filed a PIL in the Supreme Court requesting for JEE Mains and NEET to be postponed further due to the increased cases. And they have come up with 10 reasons as to why NEET should be further postponed. And Parents body from Gujarat also filed a PIL requesting NEET and JEE Mains to be conducted as per schedule without any delay. Supreme Court is yet to pass an order on it. So until there is an official notification regarding this from either NTA or MHRD, we have to assume that NEET will be conducted as scheduled on September 13th. There are 34 days more to go for the D day and anything might happen. If Supreme Court accepts the PIL, it might then ask MHRD and NTA to file in their petitions and then a call will be taken accordingly after all the pleadings are heard. So while it is still under hearing, we cannot say anything at this point in time. States like Kerala already have started taking precautionary measures to set up exam centres in the State. And NTA also did inform the Supreme Court that it cannot hold NEET abroad this year. We have to wait to hear from either NTA or MHRD regarding the same. Until then the only wise thing to do would be to prepare for NEET as if it is going to happen on September 13th so that if the schedule doesnt change, you are not thrown off the guard. And if you are preparing for NEET, you may as well try our NEET Knockout package:https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/ . And because you have 34 more days to prepare for NEET, you may as well use this opportunity

I got 19 marks in physics theory . Including practical I got 45marks. Am I eligible for the Neet entrance.. please help me I want to know.

Khushi Jain 14th Aug, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Don't lose your hope. As per the NEET UG entrance exam eligibility criteria you just need to score aggregate of 50% of all the three subjects if you belong to general category, aggregate of 40% if you belong to OBC category and aggregate of 45% for PWD.

Good luck!!
