Detailed Syllabus for NEET Exam

 

If you are preparing for NEET Exam seriously you must thoroughly prepare every single topic mentioned in the official NEET syllabus. NTA notification about revision of NEET syllabus clrearly says that the syllabus is not revised and NEET 2019 syllabus is same as NEET 2018 Syllabus. Students who are attending various NEET coaching institute must realise that lot of extra concepts are taught by their NEET coaching instututes. This leads to wastage of efforts of students who do not have potential to qualify NEET with 600 marks or above.

 

Students who want to score above 600 should read this article

 

Students preparing for NEET Exam seriously must thoroughly prepare every single topic mentioned in the official NEET syllabus for 2019 NEET Exam. Most NEET coaching institutes teach several extra concepts that are not required as per the latest NEET syllabus. This leads to wastage of efforts of students who have potential to qualify NEET with 600 marks or above but ultimately fail to do so because of lack of awareness about latest Syllabus and pattern of NEET examination. Therefore, students who want to qualify NEET with a score sufficient to get them a government MBBS seat must stick to actual NEET syllabus and should avoid wasting their time in unnecessary topics. For their benefit, official syllabus for NEET Exam as per NEET Syllabus notification is provided here from NEET 2018 Brochure. Interested candidates can bookmark this page for quick reference.
