NEET Chemistry is divided into three sections, namely, Physical, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. It has been observed that most of the questions are theory-based and can be solved by those who have read the NCERT books thoroughly in Chemistry.
Step 1: Decode the Exam Pattern and SyllabusSs
- Exam Pattern: Chemistry will have 2 sections i.e. A and B containing 35 and 15 questions respectively. However, while attempting questions asked in Section B candidates can choose to attempt any 10 Questions out of 15.
- Chemistry Syllabus for NEET: The NEET Chemistry syllabus carries equal distribution of questions from Class 11 and Class 12. It comprises around 28 chapters from the curriculum of Class 11 and 12 combined. EduRev provides you the complete syllabus information you can click here to go through it.
- NCERT Importance: In Physical chemistry, NCERT is not that much important. But for Inorganic Chemistry, NCERT is important and is the most vital source. In organic chemistry - Nomenclature, Isomerism are base and NCERT must be done thoroughly for them.
NEET Chemistry Syllabus Topics
(i) Class 11th Syllabus
(ii) Class 12th Syllabus
Step 2: Make a list of the most Important Topics
- In Chemistry, some topics become very important as questions come from them directly, so it becomes necessary to practice those topics as much as you can.
- Thermodynamics, States of Matter, Solid State, Equilibrium, Surface Chemistry, Purification and isolation of metals, Polymers, Biomolecules, Chemistry in Everyday Life, p Block elements & s-Block elements, Isomerism, Nomenclature, Inorganic bonding chapter, Redox Reactions are the important chapters from Chemistry.
Step 3: Concept Building
- Read theory carefully: Theory is the most important aspect as it will help in building the concepts, solving questions after reading will make you better at it. For concepts and questions, EduRev has compiled a complete course of Chemistry Class 11 & Chemistry Class 12. This course provides you 400+ tests to attempt for complete chapters as well as topic wise tests are also available. Theory is available in the form of precise docs and videos by best faculty.
- Important chapters: Biomolecules, polymers, chemistry in everyday life must done from NCERT. You can find the NCERT books for all the chapter of chemistry in EduRev platform also, to read Click here.
- Importance of NCERT: NCERT is very important for Organic & Inorganic Chemistry. You should read each and every line from it and do all the questions given in the book.
- Learn Formulas by heart: All formulas should be on the tips. Collect all formulas on one single place. It will help you while doing questions as well as you can go through the formulas altogether any time you want.
- Attempt PYQs: Analyse questions through PYQs and mark those concepts in which you are weak. When you know what are you weak areas, without waiting for anything else you should start working over it. You can start attempting PYQs subjectwise right now from EduRev platform, Click here.
- Important chapters of Inorganic Chemistry: Chemical bonding + Periodic table cover 50% of inorganic chemistry, revise this through NCERT and do lots and lots of questions as well. You can also read concepts and practice questions from here also for both Chemical Bonding and Periodic table. EduRev has compiled very concise notes based on NCERT so it will help you to cover the chapters in less time and with more understanding.
- Named reactions: In Organic chemistry, reactions given in NCERT should be on finger tips of the aspirants preparing for NEET chemistry. Named reactions along with their mechanisms are important which are mentioned in NCERT. You must learn them by heart.
- Mind maps can help you a lot in understanding and remembering the things, you can go through mindmaps of chemistry, EduRev has provided, which are completely based on NCERT.
Step 4: Make short notes from NCERT
- Mind maps: You should make your own notes of NCERT for referring again and again. Revision can be done through mind maps also. EduRev gives the opportunity of chapter-wise mind maps which aids in better planning. Check it out here.
- Tables and charts: According to toppers, you should make short notes in tabular form which makes memorizing easy and effective. The IUPAC names in organic chemistry, periodic table in inorganic chemistry and formulae in physical chemistry are really important and should be on your fingertips. Note them down on a paper and keep them handy.
- Make notes: Try making notes in the side margin of the NCERT textbook so that the important points do not get missed out while revision. Also, if while studying, a doubt-arises in your mind, note it down in the side margin. In this way, that doubt is cleared in your mind every time you do revision.
Step 5: Practice, Practice & Practice!
Step 6: Take up Mock Test and PYQs
- For checking the level of your preparation you should start attempting mock tests, even if your preparation is completed just for one subject, you should start attempting subject mocks. EduRev provides you with Chemistry Subjects Mocks for your excellent practice in Chemistry.
- When you are attempting complete mocks, you will start learning management of time as well as the discipline to sit straight for 3 hours. For complete mocks Click here.
- You must mark the important and tricky questions while attempting the mocks and go back to them from time to time.
- PYQs are important, You must give lots of previous year question papers so that you will get yourself inlined with the pattern and type of questions coming in NEET Chemistry. You can find previous 10 years questions papers on EduRev platform, Click here. As well as you will find Chemistry PYQs of 31 years on our platform, click here.
- Arrange OMR, give mock tests on that, attempt full paper combined with all subjects.
EduRev provides All India Rank (AIR) & in-depth analysis after every test that you attempt. You also get to know the average time taken by the students across the country to attempt a particular question. Continuous analysis & improvement is really important for every NEET aspirant.
Step 7: Revise Consistently
- Do frequent revision of NCERT Chemistry. To read, click here.
- You can also revise chemistry through NEET Revision notes of EduRev, which are made in reference with NCERT.
While revising, you may come up with doubts, do not leave them without clearing.
Write extra content or questions along margins in NCERT so that doing revision will be easy.
Revision of your own notes can help you a lot, so revise as much as possible.
Revise important formulas and named reactions of organic chemistry again and again from your formula book.
Revise through PYQs and master the subject by revising more and more. You can attempt Subject wise PYQs of chemistry from EduRev as well as you can attempt 31 Year Chapter-wise Chemistry PYQs of chemistry from EduRev.
