    However, while attempting questions asked in Section B candidates can choose to attempt any 10 Questions out of 15. The table below carries the structure of the Biology section in NEET exam. How to Prepare for NEET Biology with EduRev? Notes | Study Biology Class 11 - NEET
  • Biology Syllabus for NEET: Class 11 and Class 12 questions are evenly distributed across the NEET Biology syllabus. It contains approximately 38 chapters from the combined 11th and 12th-grade curriculum. The syllabus of NEET biology 2022 is as follows: 

(i) Class 11

(ii) Class 12

Step 2: Strategize and focus on topics with high weightage

While studying Biology for NEET you should be aware that the Biology syllabus is extensive and requires in-depth knowledge.
It is advised to split the syllabus for biology into 3 parts, for easy preparation. Generally, the question types for the exam will be from three types of chapters, they are:

  • Must-Do: It includes questions from topics such as Animal Respiration, Reproduction & Development, Animal Nutrition, Animal Tissues, Biotechnology, Ecology and more.
  • Do Only if you have sufficient time: This section includes chapters like the Anatomy of Flowering Plants, Animal Kingdom from Porifera to Echinoderms, Microbes and Origin of Life, Growth Repair, and Regeneration, Biodiversity etc.
  • Do or Die: The category covers important topics like Photosynthesis, Cell Structure, Plant Morphology, Plant Nutrition,  Genetics, Monera, Plant Kingdom, and many others.

NEET Biology Weightage
 You should focus on preparing for topics with high weightage as these can help you score more marks. Additionally, it will help save time for revision and strengthen your preparation for most important chapters. 

Botany 

Genetics and Evolution
Weightage = 21.28%


The very necessity of studying this part is because of the weightage that this unit carries. 
Ecology and Environment 
Weightage = 19.15%
Since Ecology and Environment is second highest in terms of weightage, a thorough understanding of the chapter is essential. 
Plant Physiology 
Weightage = 17.02% 
The weightage given to the segment is not something one can ignore, so that makes this unit very vital. 
Cell Structure & Function 
Weightage = 14.89%
A cell is the most fundamental unit of life and so its study is very intriguing. Along with this, the weightage of the unit makes this segment important.
Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants  Weightage = 8.51%
This segment deals with the important process of reproduction in the plants. As plants are the ultimate providers of food to all organisms, their continuity on the earth is of utmost importance. So, this makes the unit worth studying.  
Zoology 

Human Physiology 
Weightage = 27.91%

The study of the function of the human body is known as Human Physiology and it’s natural to find the topic intriguing. 
From the exam perspective also, this segment comprises the maximum percentage of weightage. 
Biology and Human Welfare 
Weightage = 18.60%
The topics are of general interest and make us aware of how biology can be used for the welfare of mankind. A considerable weightage in the exams also makes it essential to study.
Reproduction 
Weightage = 13.95%
Reproduction is an interesting topic as it involves the processes right from conception to the birth of human beings. The topic carries a substantial weightage as well.
Biotechnology 
Weightage = 11.63%
Biotechnology is basically the application branch of biology, so it is interesting and informative. The technological aspect of Biology is catered to through biotechnological tools. A substantial weightage is also a factor that makes the study of this segment crucial. 
Biomolecules
Weightage = 9.30%
Understanding the highly essential molecules that make up the body is vital for the functioning of the body and also for NEET’s prep.


Although you should cover all the topics given in syllabus, but emphasizing more on important chapters according to weightage will give you better results.
