Despite a huge syllabus, NEET UG Chemistry is the most scoring of all three sections. The majority of the topics included are NCERT-centric, which have been covered already in Classes 11 & 12, so aspirants are not completely new to the chapters. If students have conceptual clarity and are well-versed with the formulae and the periodic tables, then securing good marks in NEET Chemistry 2022 section should not be that difficult. Furthermore, regular mock tests and sample papers to enhance accuracy and speed also serve well in preparing for the entrance exam.

Importance of Solving NEET Chemistry Question Paper

The Chemistry section in NEET UG often goes sidelined by students due to the vastness of the syllabus. However, it must be kept in mind that the section carries 25% of the total weightage, and leaving out a chunk of this portion may cost a lot. Aspirants who are aiming for the top medical colleges must devote time to solving question papers of previous years as that will help them greatly in the preparations. 

Approximately 40% of the questions asked in the exam appear from the NCERT solved examples and previous question papers. This means by solving NEET Chemistry sample papers and referring to NCERT textbooks, students can easily attempt 25-30 questions. Moreover, the habit of solving NEET question papers makes students familiar with the question pattern and the areas that need more practice and trains them in time management skills, which is very important for time-based competitive exams. 

How to Attempt NEET 2022 Chemistry Question Paper?

The right approach when attempting NEET 2022 Chemistry question paper should be to start with formula-based questions that are easy and direct. After that, they can proceed to the slightly difficult ones that require applying conceptual knowledge. That way students can save some time for revision. Ideally, the target should be to answer all 45 questions in 30-35 minutes and then revise for the next 15 minutes.
