After going through the above-mentioned chemistry syllabus, students will get the proper hold of the subject demand and the topics which they need to study deeply for NEET exam. But this alone will not solve the purpose. To make your selection very sure in NEET examination, students need to understand the importance of every chapter and what weightage does the chapter carry in the NEET exam. 

Bewise classes has analyzed the last 15 year papers to understand what NEET examination look for in a student and what are the important chapters of Chemistry for the exam. To make students understand what the importance of each chapter in NEET Chemistry syllabus is, we have come up with a chapter wise weightage scheme which is further segregated in three parts namely Physical, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. This will help students to easily understand the subject and the major focus areas of Chemistry for NEET examination. This will be beneficial for students who are looking forward to cracking NEET examination with good marks.
