Q:   Has there been any change in the syllabus of NEET 2024?

A:

The NEET 2024 syllabus has been released by NTA, the exam conducting body as per the recommendation by the National Medical Commission (NMC). There are certain changes in the NEET syllabus for the 2024 exam. A number of chapters and topics have been removed from Physics, Chemistry and Biology. On the other hand, certain topics and chapters have been added and some of the topics have been modified. NEET syllabus 2024 will be released officially again by NTA along with the information bulletin for the exam. In the past few years, the NEET syllabus had remained unchanged even though the exam pattern was changed in the last two years, barring 2023. The NEET 2024 syllabus has been changed by NMC as a response to the NCERT syllabus change. NMC released the syllabus after a plea was filed before the Delhi High Court Bench seeking a direction to the concerned authorities to provide the updated and final NEET 2024 syllabus.

Q:   What is the syllabus of NEET UG?

A:

NEET UG Syllabus is divided among 4 sections- Physics Chemistry Zoology Botany All these 4 sections hold same marks for the examination and all the sections have 45 questions to be attempted in 45 minds itself. From the link NEET Exam Syllabus you can check the complete syllabus and important topics for 11th and 12th for Physics, Chemistry, and Zoology & Botany. More than 75% Biology syllabus is asked from NCERT, so it is mandatory for the candidate to pay the complete attention to NCERT of class 11th and class 12th. 

Q:   Is the NEET syllabus tough?

A:
The NEET syllabus is same as that of Class 11 and Class 12 CBSE Board exam syllabi. Hence, it is not that difficult or students need not study anything additional apart from their school or Board exam studies. However, the difficulty level of the exam depends on the question types, which is generally tricky in nature, which makes the difference in the difficulty level. The best way to tackle the NEET syllabus is through revision and taking as many mock tests as possible. According to experts and previous years' NEET analysis, Physics section is the toughest followed by Chemistry and Biology. Moreover, toughness is subjective and it depends on the preparation level and aptitude of students.

Q:   Why has there been a change in the NEET 2024 syllabus?

A:

The National Testing Agency (NTA), has clarified the reason behind changing the NEET 2024 syllabus. NTA has stated, "Due to the COVID-19 scenario, various School Boards deleted portions of each subject's syllabus. The deleted portion is still not being taken back by these Boards. The deletions were not uniform across various boards. Hence, a number of requests were received by the NTA for the revision of the syllabus." Last year, before the NEET exam, several students and parents asked NTA to release the rationalised NEET syllabus. Since the syllabus of NEET was already released before the rationalisation took place, NTA released the revised NEET syllabus, as per the NMC recommendations much ahead of the NEET 2024 exam, which is scheduled to be held on May 5.

A:
Make a study schedule for NEET giving Biology Physics and Chemistry equal weight. Consistency is key; it is preferable to study for the same number of hours on both days rather than studying all night one day and resting the next. Take into account your optimal study times. Plan your schedule taking into account your strengths and how your energy changes throughout the day. Make a list of the topics you want to cover this week and work towards achieving your daily or weekly goals. If you are unable to stick to your schedule, identify the problem, make a strategy to address it, and try again. If any subject or topic requires more time than provided, or if a test is scheduled for the next day, your schedule should allow for flexibility. Be dependable. The most crucial ability you need to pass NEET is daily study. Get your work done on time. You shouldn't put anything off. Avoid using social media and other distractions as much as possible.

Q:   I am a PCB class 11th and preparing for NEET. Is Maths compulsory to qualify for NEET?

A:
Hope you are doing great. Here is your answer to your query. Maths is not compulsory for NEET you have numerical in Physics but you do not required Maths to solve them. If you had the background of Maths in class 10 then you can solve the numericals in Physics. Infact you are being a PCB I highly recommend you to don't choose Maths because it is very tough and involve a lot of Maths. So then why you need again in NEET. So you can. Choose Maths as a optional subject why because you are already having PCB in your 11 class. So I think Maths is not compulsory subject for NEET. As you are PCB you can solve those basic mathematics questions with you knowledge. Hope this information helps you.

There is no sectional time limit in the NEET exam pattern. According to the experts, candidates should keep around one hour for each subject and 20 minutes for revision. Candidates must prepare a fool proof time management strategy while taking mock tests. They must follow different approaches and then finalise on the most convenient one.

 

Q:   Has the NEET 2024 exam pattern changed?

A:

The NEET 2024 exam pattern was announced by NTA in the information brochure. The National Testing Agency, the conducting body for NEET released the information bulletin, notification and application form on February 9, 2024. The exam pattern of NEET 2024 remained the same this year. The NEET exam pattern had undergone changes over the past two years in terms of structure and duration. The continuation of the same exam pattern has brought a sense of relief among students as they need not change their preparation strategy or look for new practice papers. Moreover, the previous years' NEET question papers would suffice for preparation and practice purposes.

 

How to Prepare for NEET 2024 Syllabus

NEET preparation is a time-consuming affair and it should be done with a systematic approach. The first and foremost step is to know the syllabus for NEET UG properly. The best part about the NEET syllabus 2024 PDF download topic-wise is from the Class 11 and Class 12 syllabi and students are already familiar with the key concepts. However, NTA has released the syllabus in English only and candidates opting for regional languages or Hindi would have to look for the syllabus in Hindi or the respective regional languages. Such candidates can seek the help of their teachers and mentors to provide them with the NEET syllabus 2024 PDF download in Hindi or other languages. To prepare for the NEET new syllabus, candidates should follow the steps given below:

  • Be thorough with the concepts: Students should know the concepts of the important topics from the NEET subjects. They should ensure that there is no gap in their understanding. In case of any doubts or queries, they should approach their mentors or teachers. Suggesting on the strategy to complete NEET syllabus, Saurabh Kumar, Chief Academic Officer, Vidyamandir Classes says, "Make sure that the complete syllabus is covered in the first three months, which includes portions from both Class 11 and 12. Since aspirants might be fresh with the Class 12 portion of the NEET syllabus, the initial time should focus on covering the Class 11 portion to rewind things. And most importantly do not opt to study new topics/ concepts at the last moment."
  • Strategy for subject-wise NEET syllabus completion: Candidates must focus on completing the NEET syllabus for each subject. While doing so, candidates may note that even though the weightage of NEET Biology syllabus is higher, it would not be tougher than Physics. On the other hand, the number of topics in Physics or Chemistry may be lower, but the difficulty level, vis-a-vis time taken to complete the syllabus would be higher. Talking about this, Saurabh Kumar mentions, "Though the Biology portion (Zoology and Botany) may be a bit easier in comparison to Physics, which has a higher number of theoretical and numerical questions. Biology students need to focus and practice more in the Physics section." 
  • Refer to the best books: While there is no dearth of books to prepare for the syllabus of NEET 2024, students should be careful in selecting those. The factors that need to be kept in mind include the coverage of the NEET syllabus, language quality and reading experience, practice questions and solutions and edition. NCERT is the best and the most popular book to refer to for NEET 2024 preparation. Hence, they should first complete the NCERT books and after that, they should move on to other NEET preparation books or study materials.

  • Get enough practice: As they say, practice makes a man perfect. In order to test whether the preparation of a particular section of the NEET 2024 section is complete or not, candidates should take NEET mock tests or solve practice papers regularly. After that, they should analyse their performance to know where they can improve further. 
  • Analyse strengths and weaknesses: Analysing one's strengths and weaknesses is very important as it helps the student understand where he/she is standing in comparison with other candidates. With less than a month to go for the exam, it is high time that they focus on their strengths and don't stress over their weak areas. However, before leaving out a topic completely, students should check its weightage and then decide. 
  • Revision: Regular revision is key to NEET preparation. After completing each chapter from the NEET 2024 syllabus, prepare notes on the key points along with charts, tables or diagrams to make it easily comprehensible. Browse through the revision notes on a regular basis to not lose touch on those topics even after completing the basic preparation.

Q:   How do I prepare for NEET along with my 12th?

A:

 

  • NEET syllabus covers your class 12 board topics and concepts. Utilise your school time well for board exam preparation. Study from NCERT textbooks for NEET and Boards. For NEET advanced concepts and problems, study from coaching modules.

Managing Class 12 Exams and NEET exam

The best time to start preparing is as early as possible, say from class 10 onwards. Building upon concepts from that juncture is necessary, saving all the last-minute rush. If not, it can hinder both performances of board exams and NEET. Studying along with class 12 syllabus will provide an effective retention capability.

Listed below are some pointers to consider managing both these exams effectively:

1. Planning – Set goals, frame a time table

  • Framing a time table considering preparation for both the exams is crucial
  • Dedicating slots especially for NEET is important while also simultaneously preparing for board exams

2. Execute plans

  • Do not sideline board exam preparation while preparing for NEET
  • Follow the time table and stick to the plans
  • Perform a daily, weekly and monthly check for adherence to the set time table. Analyze the performance
  • It is suggested to start out with weekly plans inculcating preparation for both tests
  • Dedicate weekdays for studying and learning concepts and weekends for revisions and practising

3. Subject-wise preparation

  • Take a subject one at a time rather than studying all subjects together
  • Identify weak areas in all subjects and devote more time to improve in such areas
  • Understanding the preparedness for each subject of NEET makes it easier for students to plan their course of action

4. Syllabus

  • Though the syllabus more or less remains the same for both tests, the test varies in the skills in which students are assessed
  • For this, particularly NEET, requires in-depth learning rather than mere learning from the surface or rote memorization tactics
  • Work out a syllabus plan for common chapters. While studying the chapter, prepare thoroughly so as to be able to answer for both tests
  • Interlink similar topics between different chapters
  • Choose the right mix of books to get hold of course material. Study from related sources to be able to answer a few beyond NCERT questions of NEET. This is because NEET demands more than average preparation.

5. Practice Tests for the run-up

  • These tests are extremely important for NEET. While starting out, ensure to take up at least one practice test under ideal exam scenarios
  • Simultaneously also make slots to solve previous years’ question papers of NEET and board exams

Perks of Preparing for Class 12 Exams and NEET

There are innumerable benefits of preparing for board exams as well as NEET. At times though it becomes difficult to prioritize between both, as clearing both is essential. However, with a never-to-give-up spirit, it is certainly possible to ace both these tests. A testimony of which are previous years’ toppers. Here is a breakdown of the various benefits of preparing for both simultaneously:

1. Extension of topics

While you are preparing for board exams, the basic concepts even for NEET remain the same. Since NEET is comparatively a tougher test, it requires an extension of existing topics, already learnt from NCERT. This is known, as a major part of NEET syllabus is based on class 11 and class 12 NCERT syllabus. It serves as an added advantage as separate time need not be devoted to exclusively studying for NEET, given the similarity.

2. Nature of questions

Both these tests have numerical-based questions, wherein board exams require a demonstration of a step-by-step write-up. While NEET requires the correct response only. Hence, it becomes challenging in NEET given the time constraint. Therefore, the process of attempting questions in both tests remains the same, which is yet another benefit of preparing simultaneously.

3. Simultaneously preparing for NEET just requires minimum efforts and time while studying for board exams given the continuum. There is a flow, conducive for learning. This engages one in the groove laying an effective foundation and strong groundwork only fuelling NEET preparation.

 

Q:   How can I score 400+ marks in NEET?

A:
Scoring 400+ marks in NEET requires dedicated preparation and a strategic approach. Here are some tips to help you achieve your goal: Understand the exam pattern and syllabus: Familiarize yourself with the NEET exam pattern, marking scheme, and syllabus. This will help you understand the structure of the exam and allocate your preparation time effectively. Create a study schedule: Develop a comprehensive study plan that covers all the subjects and topics within the available time frame. Allocate sufficient time for each subject, giving more emphasis to the subjects in which you are relatively weaker. Focus on NCERT: The NCERT textbooks are essential resources for NEET preparation. Study the NCERT thoroughly, as many questions in NEET are based directly on its content. Pay attention to the concepts, diagrams, and examples provided in the NCERT books. Make concise notes: Create concise and organized notes while studying. These notes will serve as a quick revision tool and help you retain important information. Practice with previous years' question papers: Solve previous years' NEET question papers to familiarize yourself with the exam format, types of questions, and time management. This will also help you identify recurring topics and understand the level of difficulty. Take regular mock tests: Mock tests are essential for assessing your preparation level and improving your speed and accuracy. Take regular mock tests to simulate the real exam environment and identify areas that require improvement. Analyze and learn from mistakes: After every mock test or practice session, analyze your mistakes and areas of weakness. Understand why you made those mistakes and work on improving those areas in subsequent study sessions. Focus on weak areas: Identify the subjects or topics in which you are relatively weaker and allocate more time to study and practice those areas. Seek help from teachers, mentors, or online resources to clarify doubts and strengthen your understanding.

FAQs Regarding NEET 2024 Syllabus

Read the important Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on NEET 2024 syllabus. 

Q:   Can NEET 2024 questions be out of the syllabus?

A:

The chance of a NEET question coming out of syllabus is low. As per the previous years' analysis, the questions were within the NEET syllabus only and the topics or chapters were evenly distributed. In case candidates encounter any question which is out of the syllabus, they must report it to the invigilator. In case test-takers know the answer and is sure of the accuracy, then they can attempt the question. Otherwise, they should leave the question unattempted. If it is proved that the question is out of NEET 2024 syllabus, NTA would cancel the question and award full marks to the candidates.

 

Q:   Where can I get the NEET syllabus 2024 PDF in Hindi?

A:

NTA officially released the NEET 2024 syllabus in English. Candidates opting for the exam in Hindi or other regional languages can check their Class 11 and Class 12 syllabus attuned to the NEET syllabus, from their teachers or mentors and request them to provide them with the NEET syllabus 2024 PDF download in Hindi or other regional languages. Hindi medium students can refer to their Board exam syllabus and crosscheck the topics or chapters. Aspirants should also go through previous years' NEET Hindi question papers to understand the question types, topics and difficulty level.

 

Q:   Are NCERT books enough to complete the NEET syllabus?

A:
Yes, NCERT books are sufficient to complete the NEET syllabus. A number of past years' NEET toppers have claimed that they referred only to NCERT books for preparation. NCERT text books ACT as the base to complete the syllabus and develop conceptual clarity and understanding of the topics and chapters. However, for practice purposes, students may refer to other books and resources as well. It is advised that while starting the NEET preparation, candidates refer to the NCERT books and move towards other books and advance resources after that.
 

Q:   What is the ratio of the NEET syllabus from Class 11 and Class 12?

A:
There is no specific or defined ratio of Class 11 and Class in which questions are set from the NEET syllabus. It varies from year to year. Based on the previous year NEET question paper analysis, it has been observed that the ratio of the Class 12 syllabus is higher than that of Class 12 syllabus. Here we present the subject-wise ratio of Class 11 and Class 12 NEET syllabus based on last year's analysis. Physics Class 11 - 42% Class 12 - 58% Chemistry: Class 11 - 42% Class 12 - 58% Biology: Class 11 - 53% Class 12 - 47%. .
 

Q:   What is the minimum marks to be scored for qualifying in NEET?

A:

Candidates belonging to the General category should secure 50 percentile. Those belonging to the PwD General category has to secure 45 percentile. The NEET cutoff percentile for the reserved category candidates is 40. The exact qualifying marks or cutoff scores will be announced by NTA along with the scorecards. This year, General category candidates had to score minimum 137 marks to qualify for the exam. The highest score secured in NEET 2023 was 720 out of 720, obtained by two candidates.

 

Q:   Is class 11th and class 12th biology sufficient for NEET?

A:

Although, 360 marks will be asked from biology section only. Around 320 marks will be from NCERT only, i.e. from class 11th and class 12th NCERT text books provided you go through each and every line of it and grasp it well. But to predict the level of difficulty in questions you must go through NCERT MCQ books for practice. And yes I said 320 marks only can be covered in biology section through NCERT but if you are aspiring for more, then of course class 11th and class 12th is not sufficient. And, one must focus equally on physics and chemistry as well. 

 

Q:   Is Earthworm topic included in NEET 2024 Biology syllabus?

A:

No, the topic or chapter on earthworm is not included in the NEET 2024 Biology syllabus. The NEET syllabus for 2024 has undergone changes wherein certain topics have been removed and various topics have been added from other state Boards. In the NEET 2024 revised syllabus, there is no mention of the Earthworms topic. Under the unit of Structural Organisation in Animals and Plants, the topic of 'Nervous and reproductive of an insect and Frog.' Based on last year's syllabus, it is estimated that the insect is cockroach, along with frog.
