NEET is a common entrance exam through which 15% of MBBS or BDS seats in various Medical/ Dental colleges of India is filled. CBSE conducts this exam every year in the month of May. It is considered one of the toughest exams of India. NEET Question paper consists of 45 question each from Chemistry and Physics and 90 questions of Biology.
Since the physics section of NEET exam contains a wide variety of theoretical concepts and numerical problems, medical students find it very difficult to prepare this subject for the exam. Physics preparation for NEET needs to be very strong with the fundamentals. It requires the problem solving and application skills which can be achieved or improved when the basics are clear.
Unlike the other two subjects (Biology & Chemistry), physics requires more hard work and focus because you will be facing both theoretical and practical questions in the exam
Here are a few tips to help you prepare for the Physics section of NEET:
1) Make a proper strategy:
Before jumping on to the preparation, you must be well versed with the pattern of exam. Start by analysing the whole syllabus, where you stand weak and where strong. This will help you making the weaker sections strong and stronger sections more strong.
2) Get your base and concepts clarified:
According to previous year papers, Mechanics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Electrodynamics and Modern Physics are the most important topics in NEET Physics. Understand the concepts and try to learn them well. Once you start visualising them, remember you have already learnt it. Physics cannot be muggled up you need to understand it.
3) NCERT on your tips:
For NEET, the text is NCERT and it is really important that you read this text thoroughly not only in physics but in all the other subjects as well to get a good percentage in your 12th board exams. Experts say that in order to prepare for NEET physics, aspirants should go word by word through their NCERT syllabus and also solve problems based on the types of objectives and questions given at the back of each of the chapters in the books.
4) Practice is the word:
Physics has a lot of numericals and need practice. It will help you develop speed & accuracy which plays a very important role in competitive exams like NEET. Narayana IIT Academy is that institute which can help you practice to improve Physics and your approach to solve a question.
5) Solve past year question papers:
This is really important and one of the best ways to practice physics before your NEET. Toppers claim that there were many topics they found common in two consecutive year question papers and this is a trend that the question paper setters usually follow.
Practicing these question papers would help in exam simulation and at the same time would also improve your accuracy speed. You will also get an idea about the question paper and also the types of questions that you would need to solve in NEET exam. Generally, these questions are not direct and hence, getting an idea on the type would help you a lot.
6) Make Charts:
Since you will be studying basics of Physics, making charts and keeping track of it on a daily basis will prove very useful in learning hands-on and will help in revision. Have all the formulas on your fingertips. By the end of your preparation and before you appear for NEET, they should become a part of you.
In NEET, you need to answer 180 questions in 180 minutes. Hence, mostly those questions are asked in Physics which can be answered in a minute. If your basic concepts are clear and you have learned all formulas, you can easily secure over 100 Marks in Physics. All the very Best
