NEET Test Prep: Tricks to study Current and Electricity for exams

The NEET (National Entrance Eligibility Test) is a standardized test for medical examination. Here, candidates are eligible to apply for examination after class 12th. This examination is basically for the medical aspirants who want to take admission to prestigious medical colleges in India. Also, every year millions of students apply for the same.

Moreover, the core syllabus includes Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of classes 11th and 12th. Hence, proper understanding and accurate preparation are a must from the candidates’ end. But, there are NEET aspirants who often get puzzled by Physics questions. Especially, they face challenging Current and Electricity Questions. So, for them, we brought this write-up showcasing effective tips and tricks to study the respective module.

Don’t Underestimate the Kirchhoff’s Law

Undoubtedly, there would be plenty of circuit-based questions in the NEET paper. So, the fundamental knowledge to solve such a question is Kirchhoff’s Law. Every single circuit-based question will be based on the same concept. Hence, underestimating or ignoring its importance will lead to negative results. There are two major flaws in the theorem.

First, the voltage law. The second, the current law. Besides, there would be general theorem-based questions, but they won’t carry enough weightage in the paper. Hence, understand this law thoroughly, practice several questions from different learning resources and get good results in the NEET examination. As of now, candidates have digital resources like online tutorials, PDFs, and online content to get command over the concept.

Know the circuit phenomena

We all know the current flow in one direction. So, while solving circuit based questions, remember to take one direction only. For instance, if you started calculation in the clockwise direction of flowing current, then stick to it. Do not change it to anti-clockwise. By doing so, there is a higher chance of getting wrong solutions and losing precious marks. Remember, every mark carries value.

Hence, stick to basics and be confident in what you are solving. There are many cases where candidates land up getting wrong answers to capacitors questions. Therefore, we are recommending knowing the circuit phenomena first and then solving questions. Having basic knowledge before solving complex electricity questions is required to come up with flying colours.

Freedom of learning

Today, candidates have the freedom to study from any study materials they prefer. There are no limitations to studying from books. Also, they can download free learning materials or NEET available on the internet. Moreover, they can avail of affordable test series and practice questions available online. Several learning portals are available where candidates can rigorously study anytime, anywhere.

Basically, the NEET is based on the Class 11 and Class 12 syllabus (Only the Science stream). So, referring to old school notes and homework will help candidates ace a good score in the examination. Reviewing those study materials once again will recall basic concepts, and it also saves time for preparation. Hence, it is advisable to study from different sources.

Stick to basics

The syllabus won’t change, and basic knowledge will remain the same. Sometimes, candidates try to over prepare by referring to JEE books. Remember, the syllabus pattern of NEET is completely different. Candidates avail of such JEE solutions to prepare Physics and Chemistry syllabus. Therefore, many good performers in board exams land up getting poor scores.

Refer to last year’s question paper, and you will know that the Electricity and Current modules based questions are completely different from the JEE paper. Hence, follow the NEET exam pattern and stick to it. There is no requirement for extreme preparation. It will only lead to academic burden and mental stress.
