When it comes to preparing for NEET Physics, students usually find it quite challenging as it constitutes a wide variety of theoretical concepts and a vast array of numerical problems associated with each concept. The NEET Physics 2019 analysis shows that most of the questions were based on numerical problems involving extensive calculations. The Physics section was not only tougher than the other sections but also comparatively lengthier.
In order to ace NEET Physics, mere learning of concepts is not enough. Students need to understand the concepts thoroughly and master the application of concepts to numerical problems.
NEET Physics consists of a total of 45 questions that sums up to a total of 180 marks in the exam. Here are a few insights into the exam as well as some key points that can help students to give a practical edge to their preparation plan.
- The NEET (UG) 2020 will consist of a total of 180 Multiple Choice Questions with four options and single correct answer and will be of 720 marks. In Physics section, 45 questions will be asked from Class XI & XII NCERT Syllabus (29 Chapters) excluding the chapter, ‘Communication System’.
- Each question will carry 04 (four) marks. For each correct answer/best option, candidate will get 04 (four) marks. For each incorrect answer, 01(one) mark will be deducted from the total score. To answer a question, the candidate will have to find, for each question, the correct answer, / best option.
The most recommended book other than the NCERT textbook is Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma Vol. I & II. The NCERT textbook is a must for Modern Physics particularly Semiconductors. Students should thoroughly go through the NCERT textbook and solve all the Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Very Short Answer Type Questions (VSAQs) of NCERT Exemplar of Class XI & XII.
NEET PHYSICS PREPARATION TIPS
Focus on the Fundamentals
Physics section is all about theoretical concepts and numerical problems. Hence, having strong fundamental knowledge is a must. It is also important to work on your problem solving and application skills in order to score well in the Physics section.
Solve Test Series
One of the best ways to prepare for exams like NEET is to solve a Test Series. Test Series comprises of a number of tests based on the actual exam pattern. It includes a variety of different types of questions that can be asked in the exam. It builds your test taking skills, helps evaluate your preparation level and improves your speed and accuracy.
Focus on Chapters with More Weightage

Students should thoroughly practice previous years’ question papers to get familiar with the exam pattern. NEET Archive provides access to the past ten year’s questions. Practicing these questions can help you understand the variation and difficulty level of questions.
Make a separate notebook for all your formulas. Learn them every day. Practice more and more questions based on these formulas. Apart from that, memorize all the important definitions and focus on the fundamentals. When you master these two, you can solve almost every problem.
