Guidance is a very important aspect in qualifying the entrance exams. The NEET and AIIMS are the toughest medical entrance exam in India. In the year 2021, NTA will hold NEET-UG whereas AIIMS Delhi will conduct the AIIMS MBBS entrance test. Here is the complete expert guidance and study plan to crack NEET 2021 and AIIMS 2021. Follow the timetable provided by subject teachers. The weekly study material and separate schedule for Class 11th, 12th appearing, and 12th class pass students.
The analysis given in this article will help you in cracking the NEET/ AIIMS examination. Let us begin our journey with a quick recap of the examination format, i.e. MCQ (objective type). The especially of this kind of format is the huge syllabus with no possibility of revision. The time frame of preparation is sufficient enough, only for a single proper reading of content pertaining to the syllabus. This format is more scientific as compared to the subjective one, provided you have the temperament and confidence regarding your preparations
The question part also has uniqueness in this kind of format, i.e. questions can be framed on each and every line of the syllabus content with infinite patterns and numbers. That’s why a proper reading of each and every line of the syllabus is essential and it is the reason only, why a small prescribed syllabus appears very huge to the aspirant in this format. Thus, the contrasting features of an objective examination format include.
- Huge syllabus
- Questions with 4 appropriate options as answers
- Unlimited number and type of question framing is possible
- Unlimited type of question framing possible
- No pattern fixation
- Always with surprises for the students
- Characteristically seen in competitive examinations
However, due to its more scientific nature, this format appeals more to aspirants. It is my personal experience that if someone has done a proper reading of concerned topics, then he/she can easily segregate the correct answer in the first go, in this type of format. Cramming or mugging of content part is strictly prohibited while the role of long-term memory and a different set of problem-solving skills is very crucial to succeed in this format.
Study Plan NEET, AIIMS 2021
Step 1 Accumulation of rough work volume and calculation of tentative time available in a year.
This can be exemplified as – Suppose we are in the first week of April, then we have 11 months 1st of March as the time available. It comes of about 330 days in total. Physics Chemistry and Biology include about 51 chapters in total (approx. estimated for one class only either 11th or 12th. ) This, we have roughly 6.5 days available to complete 1 chapter.
Step 2 Target Fixation 1 (Generalised Monthly Target Fixation)
In broad sense, it looks very simple as 7 days (approx.) are available for 1 Chapter of any of the subjects. But in this step we look for first minor detail of the work volume. The rough estimates calculated in Step 1 were stipulated for a time study of the lesson only. We also know that one-time learning of the chapters is insufficient to give requisite results. That means we actually require atleast 2 months for revision and at least last 1520 days for rapid revision. Hence, in real sense, the tentative available time can be splitted into
- Learning phase
- Consolidation phase for (6-8 weeks)
- Rapid review or revision phase (last 2-3 weeks)
From this splitting, it is very clear that the real learning phase is squeezed to 8 months (i.e. 240 days) from roughly an estimated 330 days. This simply indicated that the rough estimate of 7 days per chapter now becomes 240/48=5 days per chapter. Now, for actual calculation, we have to remove at least 30 days from the scheduled time of the learning phase in lieu of festivals or other kinds of holidays during which it is very difficult to study with proper strength. So, practically we have approximately 7 months or 210 days in a year to complete. NEET syllabus at least once which means we have only about 4 days (210/48) per chapter to the max.
Step 3 Target Fixation 2 (Specific Monthly Target Fixation)
The generalized time distribution given in Step 2 requires further attention according to your need. Here adjustments according to your class and requirements (work volume) are to be made, e.g., The generalized time distribution may vary for a class 11th student as compared to a class 12th or 12th pass students.
|In Class 11th||In Class 12th|
|State of Preparation|
|For the consolidation phase|
|Rapid revision phase|
For Class 12th Students Board Exams takes place in the Month of March
After the boards till NEET rapid review is required with more emphasis on Class 11th syllabus as compared to Class 12th syllabus.
FOR CLASS 12th PASSED STUDENTS
For a normal 12th students the schedule remains more or less the same as written above. However, this time distribution requires major changes for a Class 12th pass student. For them the problem lies in the fact that they have to cover up almost double the syllabus within the same stipulated time. The tentative time distribution for a Class 12th pass students is as follows;
Start Date Either Last week of June or First week of July.
- For the learning phase – By the end of January or mid-February (Max.)
- For consolidation phase – By the 3rd Week of March (Max)
- The period for rapid review – Last week of March + Days of April till exam
Step 4 Matching of Time Availability with Work Volume
After getting almost accurate time availability and as we already have work volume we can develop a synchronized pan which fulfills all our demands and suits to all need.s The procedure requires the calender-wise allotment of work and can be molded month-wise, week wise or day wise. A sample of week wise such a work distribution is given below. Accordingly, you can also prepare the same for yourself and it can easily change into month wise or day wise pattern.

- All the topics of General Chemistry are very important to build the foundation of chemistry. As most of the chapters of general chemistry involve numerical that’s why it is also important to have a good practice of Numerical. For this sake it is advisable to devote a separate one day for problem practice.
- Stoichiometry, Photo-electric Effect, Bohr’s Model, Hydrogen Spectrum, Quantum Numbers, Periodic Properties, Hybridisation, VSEPR Theory, Dipole Moment, Resonance and more the concepts of importance as most of the direct questions in NEET are asked from these concepts frequently. Remember, all of these topics belong to class 11th syllabus and the approximate coverage of this portion in NEET reaches to approximately 15%.
- For stoichiometric calculations develop your own shortcuts and it is also suggestive to use approximation technique in calculations to save time. The atomic structure has overlapped with the Modern Physics portion of physics, so an in-depth study of this portion will prove very helpful in gripping the Modern physics portion as well.
- The topics of interest in physical chemistry are Gas Laws and Gas Equation especially van der Waal’s modification, Concept of Entropy, Gibb’s Free Energy, various enthalpy related problems in connection with chemical equations,Le Chatelier Principle, Solubility Product, Common Ion Effect, pH, Buffers,Salt Hydrolysis and its Applications, Electrochemical Series and its Applications, Electrochemical Cells, Nernst Equation and Batteries(especially corrosion).
- Direct questions can be easily framed on these topics. Some questions of mixed nature are also seen. The topics mentioned above for learning with direct solved examples will be beneficial.
- It is advisable to take electrochemistry with redox as the latter is helpful in understanding the former. Try to develop direct formulas for solubility product, pH, and salt hydrolysis to save time.
- Inorganic chemistry is very vast and requires a picturization technique to capture, i.e. repeated readings (without memorization) are required to capture the topics.
- The topics of special interest are H2 O2, s-block Elements (especially Li, Na, K, Be, Mg and Ca) and their compounds, among p-block B, C, N, O, F, P, S, Cl and Xe with special reference to oxyacids of N, P, S, Inter-halogen compounds and compounds of Xe.
- The emphasis must be laid on the structures in case of oxyacids and compounds of Xe.
- The study about compounds like NH3, HNO3, H2SO4, H3PO4 from properties point of view is very important.
- Ithe n case of HNO3 emphasizes more on type of nitrogen oxide or related product formed during the reaction rather than the oxidation product.
- Elements of the 2nd period are called naughty elements as all of these show different properties than the fellow members of their group due to their small size. Most of the questions framed and asked on these elements only.
- Questions on Boron are very frequent.
- The other topics of special interest in physical and inorganic chemistry are Solid State, Colligative Properties, Chemical Kinetics with special emphasis on Order and Molecularity of Reactions, Pseudounimolecular Reactions, Radioactivity in Relation to Chemical Kinetics, Catalysis in General, Colloidal State, Lanthanide Contraction, the Variable Oxidation States in Transition Elements, Nomenclature and Isomerism in Coordination Compounds, VBT and CFT in Coordination Compounds.
- Organic chemistry,whichis also called conceptual chemistry demands correct orientation to be captured.
- Initial chapters are the fundamental chapters of this segment. IUPAC Nomenclature and Electron Displacement in a Molecule gives the idea of structures of organic compounds, while Isomerismindicates the relationship between the structure and the reactions of organic compounds. The exposure to type of organic reactions is required then to develop the complete logic.
- The chapters of utmost importance are HydrocarbonsandAldehydesand Ketones.
- The chapters of moderate importance are Halogen Compounds, Alcohol, Phenols and Ethers, Carboxylic Acids and their Derivatives and Nitrogen Compounds. Questions on trends in the acidic and basic strength are frequently asked.
- Chapters like Biomolecules, Polymers and Chemistry in everyday life although look unimportant but every year 1-2 questions each from these chapters are visible in NEET and other competitions. Hence a proper capturing of these chapters is also essential.

- The Topics related to classification in general and animal classification care less described in NCERT and have moderate importance in AIMPT/NEET however, their importance is elevated in other medical entrance exams.
- In spite of the fact that these are less described in NCERT, their importance for application-based questions cannot be neglected, i.e. it is advisable to go through each and every line of NCERT for revision purposes. Each of these lines is a summary of a major description regarding the individuals.
- The topics of importance are Virus, Bacteria, Plantae and Animalia.
- Cytology serves as the basis for the study of plants as well animals. Grip this particular unit with the help of randomized testing as it is the key to study other connected topics like Histology, Anatomy, Physiology and Genetics. Direct solo questions from this portion are of lesser occurrence nowadays, however, mixed type questions of cytogenetics are more frequent.
- Secondary Growth in Anatomy along with the Structures and Functions of Conducting Tissues are of greater importance as compared to the other portions of this unit. Try to grip this portion with the help of flow charts and diagrams.
- Morphology of Plants is of moderate importance in all medical entrance exams nowadays. However, this portion is also very important for understanding the basics of anatomy and physiology.
- Photosynthesis is the most important topic among all the topics of plant physiology. The key to capturing this chapter along with Cellular Respiration is to amalgamate their flow charts with organic chemistry and repetitive readings of the flow charts.
- Among Animals Tissues most of the direct questions are asked upon the destination of various type of epithelia. Among the connective tissues, blood and bone require special attention.
- After NEET 2013, the morphology of earthworm and cockroach gained more importance and you may find direct questions from these two. Flow charts and diagrams both play a crucial role in revisions of morphologies of plants as well as animals.
- Animal Anatomy and Physiology is a portion of moderate value but it has a different role also for the medical aspirant. Chapters of this portion play a vital role in the studies of Medical College too. So here, one must take these chapters as the foundation for their 1st semester in Medical College. You may found direct as well as indirect (applied) both type of questions from this portion. All the topics in this portion have almost equally important, however, Neural and Chemical Coordination has a certain edge.
- In Genetics, the Molecular basis of inheritance (Including mutations) and genetic disorders are of more role value as compared to the Mendelian Genetics portion. Direct questions are usually asked from this portion only.
- The Mendelian genetics and other portions like multiple alleles, sex determinations, sex-linked inheritance, crossing over, linkage and cytoplasmic inheritance etc., however, play a vital role in developing the foundation regarding Genetics. Questions from these portions can be asked as fillers.
- Evolution is important as its scope is very vast. One can felt its presence through NEET (Phase 1) 2016.It begins from the origin of Earth and reaches up to Human Evolution. Most of the questions from these chapters are of the generalized type with the involvement of the application as well. Nowadays direct questions from this unit are mostly discarded, instead in serve direct applied questions with self-approach are given importance.
- As mutation and genes serve as the basis of evolution also, so from both of these units direct and indirect questions can be framed easily.
- The applied biology segment of your study requires maximum effort as it contains all the portions of the highest importance and current relevance. Most of the questions in various examinations are asked from these chapters and are of the applied type. All of these have connectivity with your previous portions too e.g. biotechnology requires a proper touch of molecular genetics, likewise, ecology has genetics, morphology, anatomy, etc in its basis.
