Best Way to Prepare for NEET Physics

Best Way to Prepare for NEET PhysicsThe National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is the annual entrance examination held for admission into MBBS and BDS courses into medical institutions across the country. It is held for 3 hours and includes 4 sections: Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology. Each section has 45 multiple choice questions (MCQs), 180 questions in all. A majority of the NEET aspirants find Physics to be the toughest. Follow the study techniques we have listed below; you would no longer find the theoretical concepts and numerical problems of NEET Physics to be too demanding.

Stick to NCERT textbooks

NEET Physics includes syllabus from both Class XI and XII. Make NCERT Physics textbook your major study companion. Understand the concepts clearly and train yourself to apply the concepts in solving numerical problems and MCQs. Do not skip any topics. Even in difficult topics, learn basic definitions and concepts. If at all you need to leave out any topic, do not get anxious and pick it up few days prior to the examination. Know the weightage by chapter to draw out your study plan. Make sure to solve all numerical problems given in NCERT textbook to get a firm grip over the topics.

Additionally, it helps to follow standard competition books for solving MCQs. Online study resources like video tutorials, lectures and mobile apps can be used as add-ons to enhance learning.

Learn formulae

Learning formulae and derivatives thoroughly is the most important step to cracking NEET Physics. Write down all the formulae in a note pad for quick reference and revise them periodically.

Solve previous year question papers

One of the proven ways to clear NEET Physics is to solve past year question papers meticulously. This helps you to stay familiar with the exam format and the type of questions generally asked.

NEET Physics commonly does not have direct questions. They are framed in such a manner that it requires you to apply theories, concepts and formula to solve correctly. Hence, exposing to a variety of question styles will help you understand concepts better and gain accuracy over time.

Devote more time to solve a good number of formula-based questions. Approximation technique is recommended to solve lengthy questions. The more you practice, the more you would be at ease to answer fast.

Write short notes

We know NEET Physics topics are quite exhaustive and challenging. It may not be humanly possible to go over all the topics days before the examination. Make it simpler jotting down topic-wise short notes of important formulae, concepts and theorems for easy recall. It would certainly be a handy guide to do your last minute review just before the examination, making it an almost complete brush-up of the entire syllabus.

To make it even better, it is recommended that you get yourself registered with an online tutoring portal that works in sync with the latest changes in exam structure, study material and syllabus. You just do the learning part while the rest is handled by experienced tutors. What is the take-away? Personalized one-to-one learning and better results for you to shine at the examination desk.

Take mocks

Taking timed mock tests in a typical exam-like environment helps to gain speed and precision. Mock tests also help you analyze how exam-ready you are and identify the topics you are strong or weak at. This scrutiny would give you a clear idea on what needs more of your attention.

Clear doubts on time

Never postpone clearing doubts. You will lose precious time if you are going to get into the habit of ‘let me do it later'. As soon as you know you are not clear about a particular concept or topic, take help from teachers, friends or online study resources. This ensures no pile-up and no anxious moments at a later stage and gives you better clarity then and there.
