NEET 2018 Important Topics

Last Updated - February 20 2018

NEET 2018 is scheduled for May 6, 2018. Everybody knows that this exam is a life-altering for many (if not all) medical students. Once the students choose the medical stream, they are advised to start preparing for NEET exam. For this, they rush to the academies and institutes that would help and guide them.

 However, what they do not acknowledge is that the syllabus for the exam is what they study in their 11th and 12th standard. This is where this article comes to the rescue. Here we offer the detailed information regarding the important chapters that will help the students to strategize their study plan. Doing this might seem scary but is achievable as what is majorly required is figuring out the important areas and topics to study. Which actually means that they required being smart enough to strategize their preparation plan.

Syllabus for NEET 2018

NEET 2018 Syllabus will majorly cover the following three subjects:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology- Botany, and Zoology

All it has been stated previously and seen above the syllabus is totally based on what the students have been pursuing the school. So, completely it is crucial to focus on what is being taught in the 11th and 12th standard.

Moving on, when the CBSE announced the information regarding the syllabus of the exam, it was released that “the Syllabus of the NEET (UG) 2018 will be exactly same as it was for NEET (UG) 2017.”  Thus, it becomes easier to figure out the important chapters using the pattern of earlier year paper.

Before explicitly listing out significant chapters for the preparation let’s discuss a little about the distribution of marks for each subject. It has been notified to the students that Physics and Chemistry weigh 45 marks each and biology Weighs 90 marks (45 each for botany and zoology). Check NEET 2018 Exam Format

However, for making things easier, the table below offers the students with the information regarding the division of marks on the bases of the number of questions from an 11th and 12th standard.

Now that the students have an idea of the marks distribution, let’s finally move on to the important chapters. To make things organized the important chapters are offered subject wise with all the necessary information.
