The National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) examination is unanimously the single most qualifying exam to get into medical colleges. Every year, the NEET exam is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) across the country for admission to undergraduate medical education.

Preparing for the NEET exam must have a holistic approach as it is one of the most challenging competitive examinations in India. Students must be aware of the NEET syllabus and its weightage in the exam. NEET syllabus comprises subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology. Understanding the topic-wise NEET exam syllabus helps the students to prepare well alongside building their confidence.

Preparing for the NEET examination can be a time-consuming affair, and we, at Parishrama NEET Academy, believe that the students must have a systematic approach to their exam preparation. Our NEET coaching classes in Bangalore know that the first step is to understand the NEET UG syllabus inside out. NEET syllabus includes chapters from both class 11 and class 12 for the exam, and here are the details:
