Tips For Preparing NEET Physics

NEET physics preparation usually is the toughest for most medical aspirants as it involves a wide variety of numerical problems and theoretical concepts. Most medical aspirants prefer to study all the available topics thoroughly and they tend to apply a similar method of preparation for all the subjects. But NEET physics preparation requires a different approach to study and preparation must be focused more on practicing the numerical problems combined with theoretical concepts.

NEET physics 2021 preparation requires more effort in understanding every concept first and applying the same for the vast array of numerical problems. If not prepared with a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of Physics and application of the same in numerical questions, students might not get the clarity to solve the problems in the examination. Every student should clearly study NEET physics with proper planning and here are NEET PHYSICS preparation tips for the upcoming examination. 

NEET physics 2021 analysis shows that most of the questions were focused on numerical problems which needed detailed calculations.NEET physics syllabus carries equal weightage from both 11th and 12th which has 6 prime units and here is the % of weightage from NEET physics 2021.

S. No Unit Name % of Weightage
  Mechanics 37.8%
  Modern Physics 13.3%
  Magnetism and Magnetic effect 11.1%
  Ray and Way topics 8.8%
  Electro statistics and capacitor 8.8%
  Current electricity 6.6%
  Heat and Thermodynamics 6.6%
  Properties of Matter 6.6%

Here are few important topics from 11th and 12th physics that needed more time and concentration on the theoretical concepts and their application in numerical problems.

Class 11th Physics Class 12th Physics
Law of Motion Current electricity
Heat and Thermodynamics Electro statistics
SHM and Waves Electromagnetic induction and alternating currents
Kinematics Electronic devices
Work, Energy, and Power Atoms and Nuclei
Properties of Bulk Matter Gravitation
The motion of a system of particles and Rigid body Dual Nature of Matter and Radiation


Be Practical and Stop Evading

Students preparing for NEET physics should be more practical than being fantasies that they could get easy questions or fluke answers. The candidates that are particularly having the attitude to avoid the difficult topics especially in Physics should stop evading, and start practicing the difficult numerical problems more and understanding the basic concepts. Students should also keep in mind that not to spend too much time also on Physics subjects rather than study the important topics on a weightage basis that will yield more results.

Systematic and prompt study plan

The total study plan should depend on the level of perseverance and speed of learning the concepts. Don’t deplete your energy levels as NEET requires consistent focus, accuracy, and speed in learning. Try to solve it systematically, if you plan to study physics during the day or night make sure that you are energetic and interesting enough to understand the concepts. While solving the problems do not waste your time on one question, skip the same if you are unable to solve it and move on to the next one. Later check with your faculty about the solution and the easiest and fastest way to get the solution.

Start from Basics

Starting from understanding the basic concepts and their application techniques in numerical problems is the right method of preparation for NEET physics. Conceptual clarity is the key for scoring a good percentage in NEET as well thorough focus on the problem solving and implementation of concepts into numerical problems helps one to get a good score in Physics.

Syllabus and Exam pattern

The very first step to start your preparation is to understand thoroughly all the topics / the complete syllabus that is required to prepare. And also check the exam pattern and methodology that is followed in NEET and the marks for each question. Each correct answer in the NEET examination carries 4 marks and every wrong answer loses 1 mark. NEET physics carries a total of 45 questions for a total of 180 marks.

Focus based on Weightage

Instead of studying the entire syllabus blindly, dividing your focus as per the weightage allotted by the NEET examination is the right method to prepare. The same can be verified in the official sites of NEET or through questions papers from the previous examinations. This smart method of learning will give you more productive results and save plenty of time and energy.

Don’t compete with JEE students

NEET physics preparation should not be like JEE preparation, there is a vast difference in both the examination’s questioning patterns. Students that are appearing for NEET should concentrate on the pattern of questions from NCERT books instead of completely torturing themselves with JEE level questions. Solving JEE physics papers once in a while might be acceptable, but completely concentrating on that level of questions is not advisable.

Check the previous question papers

Solving the questions from the previous question papers provides the students with the required practice and acquaintance with the exam model. Solving the previous NEET papers helps you to identify the type of questions that are asked frequently, the time you are taking to answer the questions & solving the numerical problems helps to analyze your own accuracy and speed of solving each question and to reduce the negative points in the main examination.

Do as many Mock tests

Online mock tests will help the students more to perceive their level of understanding of the basic concepts of NEET Physics and how much more preparation is needed in the future. Do as many as possible mock tests chapter/concept-wise and also on the full syllabus to get a better acquaintance with all the syllabus, on your preparation, and the degree of your readiness for the examination.

Make a list of all the Formulas

Make sure to prepare a list of all important formulas in a chart and paste the same in front of your study table or bed. Check the formulas every day and revise them repeatedly and memorize all the relevant concepts.


  • NCERT PHYSICS BOOKS of 11th& 12th
  • Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma
  • Objectives of Physics by D.C. Pandey and SatyaPrakashArya
  • Problems in General Physics by IE Irodov
  • Understanding Physics by D.CPandey
  • Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and walker
  • Cengage Physics NEET for everyone by C.P. Singh
  • Fundamentals of Physics by Pradeep
  • Objective NCERT at your Fingertips (Physics) by MTG

Note: The main preparation material for NEET physics should always be NCERT books from 11th and 12th and all the other books can be served as references. But not to rush for all the books to refer go with few books that you are more connected and able to understand the references to practice more problem-oriented concepts.
