NEET Chemistry syllabus is something that is ignored by most medical aspirants. In fact, most students either invest too much time in Physics or too much in Biology.
However, when it comes to NEET( National Eligibility cum Entrance Test), the pressure put on students is high and intense. Yet, the pressure is quite understandable and genuine as NEET is regarded as one of the most important single largest medical entrance examinations in India.
However, it is even more important to remain calm and follow a systematic approach for preparing chemistry NEET in 2021. With pressure, comes the tricks and tips to prepare for the chemistry NEET examination.
This guide discusses 10 main preparation tips for the chemistry NEET examination by which you can score excellent marks within a month.
This will not only assist students to prepare better but will also assist them to analyze the importance of basics. Read on to find 10 excellent tips to crack the NEET Chemistry 2021!
NEET Chemistry Preparation Tips
Time is highly elastic. However, with the correct guidance, it will be quite possible for NEET aspiring students to handle all the 3 subjects with ease. Below are 10 tricks on how to prepare NEET Chemistry for 2021. Without any further ado, let’s get straight into the discussion.
Tip 1: Know what to target!
Usually, NEET comprises questions that belong straight from the NCERT level, to the higher level. Hence, your plan must encompass all. The first and foremost step to prepare for NEET is to know your syllabus well.
Chemistry NEET includes 3 sections. Make sure you pay attention to each one of them equally. Ideally, NEET questions are not that hard or tough or the easiest one which requires basic IQ.
It entirely depends on the preparation of the student. This is why NEET asks for a wide range of skills and applications. When it comes to preparing Chemistry NEET, make sure you go through the previous question papers to check the pattern and level of the questions.
Usually, they are allocated with an easy twist. However, for most students, attending 180 questions in 180 minutes becomes a huge challenge. Hence, when you know what to target first, you can cope up with the time perfectly, be it in terms of preparation or appearing for the examination.
Tip 2: Reference books are important!
There are several chemistry NEET reference books available in the market. A few excellent set of books for chemistry theory and MCQs are from Arihant and Objective Biology from Dinesh.
For physical chemistry, you can refer to O.P Tandon if you want to get the best results. This is not a must, however, it will help you to a great extent.
In case you want some advanced knowledge in Organic Chemistry, you can refer to Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd. For Inorganic Chemistry, refer to the Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D Lee.
Tip 3: Practice practice practice
Reading the formulas included in physical chemistry or only going through the mechanisms in Organic chemistry will leave you shaking in your examination when you realize that you don’t practice them.
Hence, after you learn any formula in physical chemistry or any mechanism in Organic Chemistry, make sure you practice and go through all the problems regardless of their difficulty level so that you can get a clear concept of each one of them in the right direction.
To be more precise, unless you practice a problem sum, it becomes extremely difficult to apply it to any law or concept when you sit for your examination.
To be honest, only the ones who are highly intelligent and exceptional can crack the NEET problems without solving them. Hence, make sure you don’t skip the problems and keep a thorough practice of all.
Tip 4: Time Management
First and foremost, never neglect chemistry, because it looks easier than physics to most of the medical aspirants. The trick here is, if you find something easy, make sure you go through it more and more again and again so that you score the maximum marks out of that segment.
Never rush to a topic for the sake of completing it. Make sure you manage your time wisely by dividing it for all the major topics of each subject accurately.
Distribute your timetable as per your school. Don’t study difficult chapters one after the other continuously.
Eventually, this will do nothing but create a mixture of all the concepts inside your head thus creating difficulty in memorizing or recalling them later at the examination hall.
One excellent piece of advice is to remember that it does not matter in which portion of the paper do you score more unless you score much higher than the rest of the aspirants or competitors.
In fact, while you are in the examination hall, try keeping at least 50 minutes for NEET chemistry. Try solving biology papers within 50 minutes as well. This gives you extra time to carry on with the calculations and problems of physics included in physical chemistry.
Tip 5: Don’t skip Inorganic Chemistry
This is a major misconception that Inorganic Chemistry involves nothing but mugging up. As a result, students must only go for it at the last moment before the examination.
However, on one side this is quite wrong, and on the other, it is not applicable for many. Make sure you learn each chapter involved in Inorganic Chemistry by heart throughout the year little at a time.
By doing this, what happens is, little sections get instilled in you, and by the time you sit for your exam, it doesn’t become a load for you thereby making it difficult. Cutting out the time for Inorganic Chemistry during the examination gives you more space to focus more on other portions right before your exams.
Tip 6: NCERT factor
You should follow several reference books for getting a clear concept of all the chapters. Moreover, make sure you practice a huge amount of MCQs from different books.
However, before doing all of these, ensure getting familiarised with every topic in NCERT chemistry books.
Although you might think that a certain portion is too basic to come in the exam and you skip it, chances are there you can find 80% of NEET questions from your basic NCERT book. All and all, do not underestimate small, basic, and easy questions.
Tip 7: Refrain from trying new things immediately before your exam
Let’s just be honest. It is impossible for any student to grasp each point noted in a certain chapter or understand new things just 4,5 days prior to the examination.
If you were unable to do it in your previous years, it is better to keep that portion untouched thereby hoping that minimal or no questions come from that portion.
However, it completely depends on the IQ level and ability of the students. maximum students get confused with the rest of the prepared part when they try something new prior to the Chemistry NEET examination thereby creating panic and anxiety.
Tip 8: The final week revision
It is highly recommended that you go through the whole NEET-UG 2020 syllabus for chemistry thoroughly in the last week prior to sitting for the examination. Although it is understandable that it is a huge task, these 7 days are going to be the most important for you and can be life-changing as well.
The more you revise in the last week, the more everything settles in your brain. The syllabus stays fresh, and you can answer each question easily without even wasting more than 1 minute on 1 question.
Tip 9: The last day prep
Create a brief list of chapters, topics, or portions, notes that you are completely aware of and are confident with, but keep forgetting. Create another list of portions that create anxiety inside you and which you are dicey about.
Make a list of formulas from the Physical chemistry portions in one single place so that you can roll your eyes on it thoroughly before sitting for the examination. Creating notes with selected portions is much better than Sitting with 10 books and getting panicked
Tip 10: Stay Healthy (mentally and physically)
The most important trick for preparing your mind up for cracking chemistry NEET is to take utmost care of your mental health and physical health. Stay hydrated and try to consume healthy non-spicy food from a week before the examination.
Get a good sleep and do not skip sleeping at night. Stressless, manage your time wisely, do some fun stuff in between study intervals and stay positive to help your brain function perfectly.
With this, we come to the end of this guide. Although preparing the best for NEET is challenging with so many competitors, you can still ace it by following the above-listed points sincerely on a daily basis.
By managing your time, sleep pattern, entertainment, and study hours make sure you stay positive and happy. Do not overstudy or overstress! With proper management and calculations, you can crack NEET wisely!
