NEET Zoology – Facts You Didn’t Know
Fact No. 1 – Biology – The Run Up To Score Better
Dislike Physics and Chemistry being part of NEET? This is for all those candidates who are Biology enthusiasts but have to cover Physics and chemistry as well since it is included in the NEET syllabus.
Where Physics comes with its own sets of formulae, derivations and cumbersome numericals and chemistry with its reactions etc, Zoology is free from them all. It is much easier compared to Physics and chemistry and hence can be mastered for a better score at NEET. Subsequently, while striking a balance between all subjects, if an easier subject like zoology can be mastered, an edge over others can be gained at your NEET attempt.
Fact No. 2 – Diagrams to the rescue
It is a fact that questions on diagrams in the Zoology section of Biology are recurring questions. Over the years, questions on various diagrams and illustrations covered in NEET syllabus have been appearing, if previous trends were closely examined. Diagrams are often overlooked by students as the content is given more importance since it is an objective question-based test rather than descriptive. This assumption can cost you heavily as questions on diagrams are frequently asked. Pay more attention to them.
Fact No. 3 – Most Scoring Chapters
If previous trends are deciphered, a maximum number of questions, over the years have been appearing from chapters of Human Physiology, Animal husbandry and Biotechnology, animal tissues and Biomolecules and so on. In NEET 2020 for instance, 12 questions appeared from the Human Physiology unit alone! One must carefully analyse these areas in Zoology and master them to easily score. Complete comprehension of these key concepts can set the ball rolling for you.
