What is the weightage of Physics in NEET 2022?

Physics Weightage For NEET 2022

The physics section is termed as a daunting section of NEET exams over the years by candidates as it involves conceptual clarity and a solid understanding of physics concepts to apply the acquired knowledge on numerical-based questions. This section is often termed tricky and long as it involves calculations and reasoning. But, when you prioritize topics based on their importance analyzed from previous trends, Physics just becomes a cakewalk on exam day. To assist you in the same endeavour, we have brought to you the Chapter-wise weightage of NEET Physics.
