The question paper of Physics is based mostly on NCERT concepts but it is moderately helpful because some concepts need a detailed explanation that is not available in them. Through detailed analysis of multiple question papers of NEET since 2008, important chapters of physics have been laid out along with an approximate number of questions to be expected from different chapters.

Effective study plan based on the distribution of topics:

  • The topics related to ‘Optics and Modern physics’ are comparatively easier to score in and it is advisable to study this section well.
  • The topics mentioned in ‘Mechanics’ are all inter-related and therefore, should be studied well.
  • Covering ‘Mechanics and Optics and Modern Physics’ well will allow students to cover 25 questions in the physics section.
  • Since Electricity and magnetism covers a major portion of the physics section, candidates are advised to focus well on this portion.
  • If time-management is becoming difficult and a student needs to prioritize their study material, it is advisable to study selectively from the section ‘Properties of Bulk matters and Heat’.
  • Physics is generally the toughest subject out of all three subjects.
  • Out of 45, there were about 8 difficult questions in Physics last year.
