NEET 2018 SYLLABUS
NATIONAL LEVEL OFFLINE TEST
NEET Syllabus 2018 will include questions from the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of class 11 and 12. Medical Council of India (MCI) lays down the NEET Syllabus. A detailed review of all the state board syllabi is taken into consideration to establish uniformity across the country. As per the official notification, NEET 2018 Syllabus and NEET 2018 Exam Pattern will be exactly same as it was in the year 2017.
There are a total of 180 questions divided equally among these sections. Each question is of 4 marks while 1 mark is deducted for every incorrect answer.

The expected topic-wise weightage in NEET Syllabus 2018 has been given in the tables below for each section in detail.
Mechanics and Magnetism have continued to be NEET favourites for a few years now and carry maximum weightage. Therefore, students are advised to keep them on top of their priority list for NEET 2018.
|NEET 2018 Important Chapters||Weightage of Chapters in NEET 2018|
|Dual Nature of Matter & Radiation||7.3%|
|Magnetism & Moving Charges||6.3%|
|Rigid Body Dynamics||5.6%|
|Work, Energy, and Power||5.2%|
|Kinetic Theory & Thermal Properties of Matter||2.0%|
The question paper is based mostly on NCERT concepts but it is moderately helpful because some concepts need a detailed explanation that is not available in them. Here are a few books you can refer to for a better idea of the NEET 2018 exam pattern and clear understanding of concepts.
|Physics for Medical Entrance Examinations||D.C. Pandey|
|Concepts of Physics||H.C. Verma|
|Fundamentals of Physics||Halliday, Resnick and Walker|
|Objective NCERT at your fingertips for NEET AIIMS- Physics||MTG Editorial Board|
|Complete NEET Guide||MTG Editorial Board|
|NEET 2018 Physics Guide- 5th Edition||Disha Publications|
|NEET Important Chapters 2018||Chapter Wise Weightage for NEET 2018|
|Organic Chemistry – II||5.6%|
|The d and f Block Elements||4.4%|
|IUPAC & Isomerism||4.0%|
|Thermodynamics and Thermochemistry||3.8%|
|Haloalkanes and Haloarenes||2.2%|
|Chemistry in Everyday Life||1.3%|
|Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids||1.0%|
NCERT should be on your fingertips as almost 30-35 questions are asked from here. Make use of help books for practice papers and sample questions. These are some of the best ones:
|Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry||O.P. Tandon|
|Bull’s Eye Chemistry NEET Edition 2018||Seema Saini and K.S. Saini|
|40 Days Chemistry for NEET||Sudhanshu Thakur|
|Objective Chemistry for NEET Vol. 1&2||R.K. Gupta|
|Organic Chemistry||Morrison and Boyd|
|Important Topics for NEET 2018||NEET 2018 Chapter Wise Weightage|
|Human Physiology Biological Classification Molecular Basis of Inheritance||12.0%|
|Molecular Basis of Inheritance||8.2%|
|Human Health and Diseases||4.3%|
|Biotechnology: Principles and Processes||3.1%|
|Microbes in Human Welfare||2.7%|
|Strategies for Enhancement of Food Production||1.4%|
Students are highly recommended to be thorough with NCERT since that is where most of the questions will be asked from. Almost 70-75 questions of Biology are expected directly from NCERT which is the foundation text. In this section, the only use of reference books is for sample papers and mock tests.
