Effective study plan based on the distribution of topics

  • For the first 4 chapters, NCERT is a must-read to build a strong foundation.
  • For chemistry, students should cover all the topics as they are all inter-related and leaving out on a topic can affect one’s understanding of different yet connected topics. For instance- equilibrium and electrochemistry are inter-related
  • Chemistry is a moderately difficult section in the exam. The questions range from theoretical and reasoning based to practical.
  • Students should focus more on application based questions.
  • NEET 2019 is expected to have more questions from class XII syllabus as compared to class XI. Last year there were 24 questions from class XII and 21 from class XI.
  • Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry are extremely important and carry the maximum weightage.
