When it comes to preparing physics for NEET, one has to understand that this subject is an interesting mix of concepts and numerics. The preparation of this topic should be centered around the two basic goals: to gain the conceptual clarity and the application of concepts in solving the numerical problems efficiently.
As with any competitive exam, including NEET, the mantra for all students should be “Efficient preparation equals excellent performance”.
With regard to NEET, physics is usually considered mentally the most challenging and hardest subject to score. However, a thorough analysis of last year’s questions has yielded tips to score well on this topic:
• NCERT: the base is beautiful: Students should read the NCERT thoroughly. When you’re flipping through the NCERT books on physics, make sure you read between the lines. While reading the NCERT, the student should try to get into the examiner’s mind and identify the concepts and lines from which the questions may be asked. Also, NCERT’s exercises should not be skipped as they contain very interesting and conceptual issues. It’s worth noting that in 2021 most of the physics questions were based directly or indirectly on NCERT.
• Less is more: It is very easy to wander and get lost in the myriad of books available in the market today. Although, as one practices a large number of questions, the grip on the subject increases, the quality of the questions attempted should not be underestimated. The student must adhere to relevant books such as NCERT and study materials. With only a few months to go, one cannot afford to lose track.
• Practice makes perfect: Since physics is a numerically heavy subject, practicing more and more quality questions will improve the student’s understanding of the subject. The student must thoroughly solve all the questions from the past year and also try last year’s NEET papers as mock tests. The students should try the test series available to them and clear all their doubts regarding the attempted test before the next test.
• Units and dimensions
• Laws of Motion
• Work, energy and strength
• System of Particular and Rotation of Movement
• Mechanical properties of liquids
• Current Electricity
• Moving Charges and Magnetism
• Beam optics and optical instruments
• Wave optics
• Dual nature and radiation of matter
To summarize, the main preparation tips in physics include focusing on the fundamental concepts, practicing the application of these concepts through extensive problem solving so that no question appears to be a new format. Studying the NCERT is the essential foundation and practicing through test series in a time dependent format is a must.
