Important Chapters in NEET 2018

Last Updated - May 05, 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. Which actually means that they need to be smart enough to strategize their preparation plan. Doing this might seem scary but is achievable as what is majorly needed is figuring out the important areas and topics to study. This is where this article comes to the rescue. Here we provide the detailed information regarding the important chapters that will help the students to strategize their study plan.


NEET 2018 Syllabus

NEET 2018 Syllabus will majorly cover the following three subjects:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology- Botany and Zoology

All it has been said earlier and seen above the syllabus is totally based on what the students have been studying the school. So, clearly it is crucial to focus on what is being taught in the 11th and 12th standard.

Moving on, when the CBSE released the information regarding the syllabus of the exam, it was announced 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 previous 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 Pattern

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

 Number of questionsTotal marksNumber to questionsTotal marks
Physics197626104
Chemistry166429116
Biology5321237148

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

In Zoology, students should primarily focus on Human Physiology, as it weighs 24 marks, which is the highest for the topics in this subject. Thus, the above table show presents all the information regarding the important chapters for the exam that the students should keep their focus on. It is common knowledge that not every students can master every topic, so the above table also help them to form a combination for high scoring chapters which they are good at, so that they can successfully increase their scores. All the best to everyone for their exam and before that for the preparations.
