NTA has published NEET 2021 Physics Syllabus on its official website. Physics section carries 25% weightage out of 180 total marks of NEET 2021 exam. To check the NEET 2021 syllabus, you have to visit nta neet.nic.in.

Since NEET (UG) is now the only examination for admission in medical institutes in India, hence, the difficulty level might reduce. But to secure admission in a top-tier medical course, you have to solve NEET previous years question papers and sample papers with utmost dedication. It will also help you to understand the weightage of the questions of each section.

3 subjects are assessed in the examination – Physics, Chemistry, Biology. NCERT books of class 11th and 12th for each subject are extremely important while preparing for NEET 2021. Specifically, NEET 2021 Physics Syllabus is considered to be the toughest among the three subjects.

So, what should be the first step to start your NEET 2021 preparation? To begin with, aspirants should know the syllabus of each subject. Even though the NEET 2021 syllabus has not been announced this year, it is expected to be same as 2020.

Chapter-wise difficulty in NEET 2021 Physics Syllabus 

Given below is an analysis of difficulty of questions bifurcated chapter-wise. As the table below suggests, NEET Physics Syllabus requires deep knowledge of each topic. Specifically, the number of easy questions has completely vanished in the past few years. Considerably, almost all the questions in NEET Physics are moderate or tough. Furthermore, the major getaway from this is that due to a higher difficulty level, competition in NEET is saturated towards the top 10% to 20% of the candidates only.

Unit Number of Questions Easy Moderate Difficult
Mechanics 17 0 16 1
Heat and Thermodynamics 3 0 3 0
Properties of matter 3 0 2 1
Electrostatics and Capacitor 4 0 4 0
Current Electricity 3 0 3 0
Magnetism, Magnetic Effect of Current and AC 5 0 4 1
Modern Physics 6 0 5 1
Ray and Way Optics 4 0 4 0
Total 45 0 41 4

NEET 2021 Physics Syllabus: Preparation Tips

NEET Physics syllabus is considered as difficult due to confusing patterns and also because it includes a wide range of scientific principles and numerical problems. Again, the top experts will not deny this fact. Hence, you should clear your concept first. Afterward, to cover the whole syllabus from 0 to 100, the students should follow a strategy.
