NEET Physical Chemistry

It’s the numerical section of NEET Chemistry. Understanding the concepts is crucial for Physical Chemistry. It’s difficult to interpret a numerical without understanding the related concepts. The students are advised to have a strong grip on all the concepts taught in NCERT textbooks. Also, maintain a list of important formulas and practice questions regularly. From this section, the probability of getting theory-based questions is quite less. However, with regular practice, you can score good marks from this section.

Organic Chemistry for NEET

The students are advised to understand and memorize all the equations, formulas, and reactions given in NCERT textbooks. Memorize the names of various compounds that constitute reagents, subtracts etc. To gain command over this subject practice variety of questions from reference books as well.

Inorganic Chemistry for NEET

It is the easiest section of NEET Chemistry. Most of the students complete this section in very less time as numerical and formula-based questions are not asked in this section. The students are advised to understand the basic concepts taught in NCERT textbooks thoroughly.

NEET Chemistry Preparation Tips:

Formulate a proper Preparation Strategy: Planning plays a crucial role while preparing for a highly competitive exam like NEET. Instead of having a long-term goal, create small and achievable goals. This will allow you to monitor your progress more clearly. Prepare a weekly study plan and target certain topics each week. Focus on your target and work hard to achieve it within the specified timeframe.

Refer NCERT Textbooks: Several times the questions asked in NEET exam are picked directly from the concepts taught in NCERT textbooks.
