    Physics is often considered as the most challenging subject for NEET aspirants as it deals with a large range of theoretical to quantitative numerical based difficult questions. To ensure a good score in NEET, all you need to do is overcome the fear of Physics. In this article we discuss multiple tips in covering Physics, based on the demand of the examination. 

    National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is an all-India pre-medical entrance test for students looking to pursue various medical courses like MBBS, BDS, and AYUSH (BAMS, BUMS, BHMS, etc.) in government as well as private institutions.

    NEET examination is conducted every year by the National Testing Agency (NTA) for 200 marks consisting of four subjects including Chemistry, Physics, Zoology, and Botany, each having a weightage of 25 per cent. Hence it is important to have a perfect strategy to deal with Physics questions so that you can solve most of them.

    All the subjects in NEET are equally important and every subject requires a specialised strategy. In this article we discuss Physics strategy for NEET wherein 10 tips shared by our Physics experts have been provided which will certainly help you score well in the examination.

    Below are top 10 tips to solve Physics which are important for NEET preparation as well as during the examination.

    Top Tips While Preparing For NEET Physics

    1. Go through 20 most important concepts. There are certain concepts which are repeated in the examination year after year. You must go through all the important concepts listed below before the exam as the probability of questions from such topics is very high. This is a part of the smart strategy which helps in scoring high marks in the Physics section. This is more important for people who have a paucity of time and have still not covered the syllabus. They should definitely go through these concepts. Revise theory, formulas, numericals and previous year questions of the topics mentioned in the table which is at the end of this article consisting of concepts along with the number of times such concepts has been asked in the last 5 years of NEET Examination.

    1. Read the syllabus. Reading the syllabus properly is essential as it gives an idea about the topics from which questions can be asked in NEET. Also it has been observed that students start reading chapters directly from the books and end up reading chapters which are not mentioned in the NEET. Hence, reading the topics mentioned in NEET syllabus is an important aspect of the preparation.

    1. Read and analyse previous year papers. Previous year question papers are the best guide to prepare for NEET. Go through Previous Year Questions (PYQs), you will be able to assess the general difficulty level of the questions asked, areas from where most questions are being asked and important topics which need extra emphasis.

    1. Refer only relevant books. Difficulty level of Physics questions in NEET doesn't match books like Irodov, S.S. KROTOV etc. Generally students start practising questions from these books and end up losing time for other subjects. Hence it is recommended to go for NCERT based books which are more relevant for the NEET. You can also refer to MTG fingertips, DC Pandey for NEET physics etc.

    1. Practice NCERT exercise questions. One should practice NCERT exercise questions first and not go for additional exercise questions as the difficulty level of additional exercise questions is not relevant for the NEET. However if one feels that he or she has already completed exercise questions and has sufficient time, you can go for additional exercise.

    1. Make short notes. Considering the enormous syllabus that has to be covered, making short notes can help in last minute preparations. Hence, make short notes of every chapter which you can cover in 2-3 hours in the last few days before the examination. Short notes for a chapter consist of four to six pages out of which two pages should be allocated to formulas and concepts, two pages for important points and the rest two pages which must be left blank for further addition if you get any important point while attempting mock tests.

    Tips To Follow While Attempting The NEET Physics Section

    1. Start answering questions which are easy. In the Physics section, there are some questions which are concept based and are easy. While some questions involve numericals with heavy calculations which take more time. Hence you must try to cover easy questions first and then go for relatively difficult questions. Also in some questions, you might feel stuck and end up wasting more time. Avoid such a situation, if any question is taking more time, leave that and move to another question as time management is an important aspect in NEET.

    1. Use elimination tricks. In the Physics section, elimination techniques can help you solve 1-2 extra questions. Also, it will help you save some time during the examination. However, this must be used when you are not able to solve the question using your conceptual knowledge. In this, you can use dimensional analysis from options or do reverse engineering which means use each option to verify the question. There will be at least one option out of the four which will satisfy the question and that will be the correct option only. While attempting previous year questions and mock tests, you can observe that in some questions this trick helps.

    1. Highlight/circle the key words. There are some words like EXCEPT, NOT CORRECT, OTHER THAN, etc. that need attention as sometimes these words are missed while reading the questions. So to avoid this mistake, you can highlight such keywords while reading the question.

    1. Maintain speed and accuracy for better tIme management. Considering the high cutoff in the NEET, speed plays an important role. Aso there is always a chance of silly mistakes while doing mathematical calculations, hence you need to be extra careful while solving a numerical problem. Speed and accuracy can be improved if mock tests are practised on a regular basis.

    As mentioned above Physics is the subject in which many NEET aspirants face difficulties. To score well in the examination, Physics cannot be neglected. Hence a perfect strategy as provided in this article to ace NEET Physics is sure to help you secure highest scores.
