    If we talk about NEET 2019 Physics section it was moderate in terms of length and difficulty. There are some formula based questions also. However, for better scores, the students were required to have a strong concept base along with the practical application of concepts. Candidates found that there are mostly questions asked from NCERT syllabus, around 60% of the NEET paper to be precise.

    As our experts say questions are taken equally from class 11 and 12 topics like Mechanics and Modern Physics dominated with around 50% of the section. Questions that appeared from topics such as Magnetic Effect of Current and Current Electricity were easy.

    Chaper Wise Distribution

    Name Of The Unit Number of Questions Weightage Marks
    Current Electricity 3 6.66% 12
    Electrostatics and Capacitor 4 8.88% 16
