How to Prepare for NEET From Class 11 - Detailed Study Plan For NEET

NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance test) UG will be held on the 5th of May,2019 in more than 100 cities, which will be playing host to this event. This day is a crucial milestone for medical and dental aspirants who wish to be placed in top medical schools in India. It is a 3-hour paper with 180 questions. Each question carries a +4/-1 marking system. In this article, our main agenda for discussion is preparation time and daily time table required for NEET success.

11th standard NEET Preparation Timeline

NEET 11th Standard Physics Preparation Timeline


This is the initial phase of the preparation cycle. Hence, to make the foundation strong, all the basic concepts must be covered in detail. We have tried to divide the timeline by topics.

Physical world and measurement are easy to learn the topic and generally has simple questions which require the knowledge of formulas. But the key here is to remember the formulas for at least 2 years, thus needing attention to details. Laws of Motion and Kinematics is basic Newtonian physics which is a must-know for any science student. It is probably one of the most disliked topics as not only it can be confusing, simple questions can turn out to be very complex.

September - November

Questions involving Motion of System of Particles and Rigid Body require clear fundamentals.

Gravitation, on the other hand, is found as a straightforward topic by most students. But the amount of calculation can always be a tricky situation here.

December- March

Work, Energy and Power is where Physics starts taking major turns from this section. It is very important to understand these three topics before moving forward in this subject. Tricky questions can also be expected from this section. Properties of Bulk Matter is an underrated topic which can carry a good amount of weightage in the paper. A seven-day span should be spent on understanding the theory before diving into problem-solving.

April - May

Thermodynamics is one of the key topics for NEET preparations and, it is a tough topic to grasp. Thus, a minimum of fourteen days should be spent on concept understanding and extensive problem solving. Behavior of Perfect Gas and Kinetic Theory would be another topic that plays a meaty role in medical field. Finally, Oscillations and Waves would require knowledge of basic physics and a lot of attention!!

NEET 11th Standard Chemistry Preparation Timeline

May - August

Basic Chemistry is fun to learn and has a lot of weightage in competitive medical examinations. The first four months of preparation must consist of extensive practice of problems in these topics:  Some Basic Concepts of Chemistry, Structure of Atom, Classification of Elements and Periodicity in Properties.

September - November

Once the initial phase is completed and the concepts are looking good, it is time to dive deep. Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure along with States of Matter: Gases and Liquids, need extra-work as they tend to be problematic.

December - March

The new year would require learning new and harder topics like Thermodynamics, Equilibrium, Redox Reactions, Hydrogen, s-Block Element (Alkali and Alkaline earth metals) and Some p-Block Elements.

April - May

The final stage of the class 11th medical prep would be revolving around Organic Chemistry with some Basic Principles and Techniques. Hydrocarbons and Environmental Chemistry would follow once students are familiar will basic organic chemistry concepts.

NEET 11th Standard Biology Preparation Timeline

May - August

Introduction to biology is one of the exciting courses no doubt as students prefer to excel in this field. Diversity in Living World would be the topic to carefully maneuver during the first few months of preparation in 11th standard.

September - November

Structural Organization in Animals and Plants is the next topic in line which requires critical attention and memory. Cell Structure and Function can also be covered if a student is willing.

December - May

The second half of this year would be spent on Plant Physiology and Human physiology. They are a must-know topic for future doctors and dentists requiring detailed attention.

12th Standard NEET Preparation Timeline

NEET 12th Standard Physics Preparation Timeline

Standard 12th physics is a whole different ball game and hence must be studied with caution. These are our suggestions of topics according to a monthly schedule.

May - August

Electrostatics and Current Electricity are the foundation stones for Magnetic Effects of Current and Magnetism. There are multiple theorems and proofs which must be understood.

September - November

The second phase of Physics prep involves Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Currents along with Electromagnetic Waves.

December- March

Optics is a huge subject and thus we dedicated three months for preparation. Miscellaneous topics like Dual Nature of Matter and Radiation, Atoms and Nuclei, Electronic Devices should be covered during this phase itself.

NEET 12th Standard Chemistry Preparation Timeline

Since the last two months of the XII standard involves board examinations, most of the topics should be ideally covered by March right before the boards.

May - August

The topics considered for four months of prep are: Solid State, Solutions, Electrochemistry, Chemical Kinetics, Surface Chemistry, General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Elements.

September - November

Inorganic chemistry topics like p-Block Elements, d and f Block Elements, Coordination Compounds are next on the list.

December - March

The last phase of would end up with organic chemistry. These are the topics: Haloalkanes and Haloarenes, Alcohols, Phenols and Ethers, Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids, Organic Compounds Containing Nitrogen, Biomolecules, Polymers, Chemistry in Everyday Life.

NEET 12th Standard Biology Preparation Timeline

Once the final year of school has started, there would be little time for recollecting everything. Thus, preparation for biology must be finished early for allowing room for revision time.

May - August

Reproduction and Genetics and Evolution are very important topics, but they must be covered within this time.

September - November

Biology and Human Welfare along with Biotechnology and Its Applications should be one the completed list by the end of November.

December - March

Ecology and Environment would be the final puzzle to complete. This phase will require extensive and exhaustive revision and practice of previous year problems.

NEET does not repeat questions from papers older than three to four years. Students are advised to practice lots of questions and join coaching institution like Allen if they feel it is needed.

All the best!
