NEET 2021 Exam Syllabus

NEET helps the Medical Institutes to evaluate the students based on their intellect as well as reasoning. Experts at TG Campus®, through their experience, have compiled a NEET 2021 exam syllabus that will help you prepare for NEET.

NEET 2021 Syllabus

In accordance with the official notification, NEET 2021 Syllabus and Exam Pattern will be exactly same as it was for the year 2021.

Therefore, it is expected that there would be a total of 180 questions which would be divided equally among the different sections.

Each correct answer would be awarded 4 marks while for every incorrect answer 1 mark would be deducted.

NEET 2021 Exam Syllabus Topic-wise Weightage

Based on the last year's pattern, the expected topic-wise weightage for NEET Syllabus 2021 has been given in the tables below for each section in detail.

Weightage of Physics in NEET 2021

  • Physics is in general the toughest subject based on questions asked, out of all three subjects.
  • NEET 2021 Exam is expected to have lengthy and time-consuming questions in this section.

It was also found that Mechanics and Magnetism would have maximum weightage in the NEET 2021 exam. Therefore, students should try to give the maximum focus in NEET 2021.

Modern Physics 13.3 %
Ray & Wave Optics 8.8%

Weightage of Chemistry in NEET 2021

  • The next in difficulty level ladder is Chemistry which is considered to be a moderately difficult section in the exam.
  • The section contains questions from theoretical and reasoning based to practical.
  • Though the NEET exam also has many application-based questions. Thus, the students should focus on the application-based questions as well.
  • NEET 2021 Chemistry section would be expected to have more questions from class XII syllabus as compared to class XI.
  • Based on the past NEET Examinations, the Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry are one of the most important portions and carry the maximum weightage.
Important Chapters Weightage
Chemical Bonding 12.5%
Basic Concepts 10.0%
Chemical Equilibrium 8.2%
Carbonyl Compounds 7.1%
Coordination Compounds 6.7%
Organic Chemistry-II 5.6%
Reaction Mechanism 5.2%
The d and f Block Elements 4.4%
IUPAC & Isomerism 4.0%
Thermodynamics and Thermochemistry 3.8%
Chemical Kinetics 2.2%
Haloalkanes and Haloarenes 2.2%
Chemistry in Everyday Life 1.3%
Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids 1.0%
Environmental Chemistry 0.8%
Section Wise Weightage in Chemistry:
  • 34% Organic Chemistry
  • 34% Inorganic Chemistry
  • 32% Physical Chemistry

Weightage of Biology in NEET 2021

  • The biology section is further divided into Botany and Zoology. Each of these sections have 45 questions.
  • The Biology section is considered to be the easiest out of the three sections and therefore helps in students to secure maximum marks.
  • Based on the trend of past papers, the NEET 2021 Exam would be expected to have more number of questions from Human Physiology and Plant Diversity.
