NEET Physics Syllabus 2024: The National Medical Commission (NMC) has updated the NEET UG Syllabus 2024. The syllabus revision exercise involved the deletion of some major chapters and topics from all subjects. The National Testing Agency (NTA) will conduct NEET 2024 based on the revised syllabus only. Therefore, students must have the latest and updated syllabus with them and make their preparation plans according to the contents prescribed in it. Checking the NTA NEET Exam 2024 syllabus should be the prime task for all medical aspirants as the syllabus is the blueprint of the exam, and it will help you understand what topics you need to study and how much weightage each topic carries. Being thorough with the syllabus will also help you stay focused and avoid studying unnecessary topics. In this article, we have provided the detailed syllabus of Physics for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2024 that will be conducted by NTA, the National Testing Agency in India. The syllabus mentions the list of topics from class 11 and class 12 Physics that will be covered for NEET 2024. You can read and download the complete NEET syllabus in PDF here.
