NEET 2019 syllabus

The Medical Council of India (MCI) takes into consideration the class 11 and 12 syllabi across different states before finalizing the syllabus for the NEET exam. With three subjects – Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, students are expected to be proficient in all topics without exception. In this article, we will share the NEET 2019 syllabus and also talk about some good reference books.

NEET 2019 Syllabus

The NEET exam has one paper of 180 questions which is divided equally among different sections. It is derived from three subjects – Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. The exam is in an offline mode (pen and paper mode) and carries 4 marks for a right answer and deducts 1 mark for every incorrect answer. Here is the subject-wise syllabus:

Physics

Some other points about NEET 2019 syllabus

  • The NEET 2019 syllabus is the same as that of 2018.
  • You can access the detailed syllabus at NEET’s official website – www.ntaneet.nic.in. Click on the information Bulletin of NEET -UG 2019 and scroll down to the Appendix-I.
  • This is the final version of the syllabus and there will not be any further changes to it.
  • Under any circumstance, do not skip any topic. The questions are asked from varying topics and you cannot predict which ones might get included.
  • Refer to any other books if you find the need to understand concepts.

Summing Up

While we have listed the topic names, you must visit the NTA’s website and download the detailed syllabus. This will ensure that you don’t miss even a single sub-topic. Remember, the competition is fierce since lakhs of students compete for a very limited number of medical seats. Therefore, ensure that you have the detailed syllabus with you before you start preparing for the exam. Good Luck!
