It is beneficial for you if there are common chapters as you will not need to prepare them separately. This will give you ample time to concentrate on the parts of the syllabus that are not covered.
Important Focus Areas for NEET 2018 are:
Physics – Mechanics, Optics, Thermodynamics and Nuclear Physics
Chemistry – Mole Concept, General Organic Chemistry, Periodic Table, Chemical Bonding, Coordination Chemistry
Biology – Ecology and Environment, Genetics, Cell Biology; Morphology, Reproduction and Physiology of Plants and Animals; Basics of Biotechnology

Tips and Tricks to ace the NEET Exam
1. Strategy to Revise Biology for NEET
In NEET , you will face 90 questions in biology. That means you can score maximum 360 marks, accounting for 50% of the score. Half of it would be on botany and rest half would be zoology.
You can easily score above 300 in Biology, by mastering NCERT biology books.
When you are studying a chapter from NCERT, make notes. If you have come across any useful tip about a topic in any other book, then make a note out of that on a sticky note, and stick that on that chapter on your NCERT book. This way during revision you can refer the notes for exam from one place only, instead of jumping from one book to another.
2. 5 things you must do to revise biology for NEET in 3 months
- See, understand, memorize all diagrams with labellings.
- Revise NCERT from beginning to end.
- Jot down important points – most often asked in exam – in one place.
- Also jot down things you keep forgetting in one place.
- Practice MCQs chapter-wise, and also solve past year papers, sample papers.
3. Strategy for Physics revision for NEET
I overheard a teacher once telling her students, “Biology will help you qualify, Chemistry will help you score and Physics will help you ace the exam.” This cannot have been better put.
There are two types of questions in physics: (i) formula based (ii) conceptual.
Thus, to ace the physics section, you need to do two things.
- Read, write, revise all formula.
- Understand all concepts well.
Mechanics, thermodynamics and kinetic theory, electrodynamics, optics and wave optics, modern physics are really important, contributing to the majority of the paper.
4. Strategy for Chemistry revision for NEET
Chemistry – physical, inorganic, organic – has a slightly different approach.
A common myth is that inorganic chemistry should be studied in the end as it involves mugging, but mostly it does not help if you study like that. How much ever you try to mug up a complete section of chemistry towards the end, it will not be easy to remember everything on exam day. So, be regular with all of chemistry.
Physical chemistry requires remembering formulae, knowing where to apply them, and be quick in calculations. Rather than doing only easy questions while preparing, attempt really tough ones during preparation.
Inorganic chemistry, as suggested earlier, should be done consistently. Yes it does involve memory skills, but also it helps a lot if you understand why something is happening rather than just trying to remember it. So grasp that logic and study inorganic chemistry.

5. Solve Previous Years Question Papers and Mock Tests
As you know there will be 180 questions in NEET Exam, that is to be answered in 180 minutes, that means you have 1 minute per question. So, the time constraint is the biggest challenge for all the aspirants.
But you can ace this challenge, by practicing Mock tests and NEET Question Papers for Previous Years. Solving mock tests will help you in your exam preparation as well as performing revisions. As, you will come to know your weak areas and also, it improves your speed and accuracy to solve the maximum number of questions in less time.
Practicing Previous years papers will give you an idea about the type of questions asked in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test and you can make up your mind for the upcoming one.
I hope this article will help you in scoring good marks in NEET.
Happy Learning! 🙂
