To make sure that you practice daily and complete the NEET syllabus on time, you need to decide on a study schedule. Plan ahead how much time it will take to study the entire Neet Physics and Chemistry syllabus for NEET 2021. You can create a monthly, weekly or quarterly schedule. Make sure that you study consistently. This does not mean that you need to study for longer hours. Just focus on the quality of your learning. 

3. Pick The Best Study Material 

Better learning is possible with better study resources. So must collect all the study resources for NEET. Raghav, who is doing online NEET preparation with askIITians, says that he started with NCERT books and revised all the fundamental Physics and Chemistry concepts. This helped him set the right base for advanced NEET concepts. Here are some other NEET reference books that you may consider: 

  • Physical Chemistry by P. Bahadur 
  • Physical Chemistry by O.P. Tandon 
  • Organic Chemistry Objective by Arihant 
  • Organic Chemistry by O.P. Tandon 
  • D. C. Pandey Objective Physics 
  • Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker 
  • Concepts of Physics by H. C. Verma

4. Find a Mentor 

Scoring 150+ marks in NEET Physics and Chemistry is no walk in the park. There will be setbacks, doubts, nervousness and uncertainty at times. You need someone to guide you at every step of your NEET preparation. This is also the time when you need expert career guidance and advice.

5. Solve Papers 

This is one of the most important NEET exams tips for students. No matter what you do, but do not miss solving sample papers and previous year question papers for NEET. Solving previous year papers helps you understand the exam pattern and marking scheme. It will help you understand how well you are prepared for NEET and how much more you need to practice. Solving NEET sample papers will help you increase your problem-solving speed so that you can solve maximum questions in a short time.

This is quite obvious but while preparing for the exams we often overlook the quality of our learning. Our only goal is to achieve the best score. We cram concepts and problem-solving tricks just to make sure that we complete the syllabus quickly. But, if you want to score 150+ marks in Neet Physics and Chemistry in NEET, you must focus on concept clarity. Whether it is the practical applications in Physics or chemical reactions in chemistry, you must focus on understanding the concepts well.

8. Get your Doubts Solved 

Simran, one of the students at askIITians who is pursuing NEET preparation online in Dubai told us that solving her doubts regularly helps her a lot. She compiles a list of her doubts every day and asks them from her teachers whenever she gets time. She aims to solve all her doubts by the weekend. She never lets her doubts pile up which helps her understand all the concepts in a better way. If you also want to score 150+ marks in Physics and Chemistry in NEET 2021, do not let your doubts stay unsolved for long.
