All the rest topics of Physics for Class 11 and 12 are same as the old draft syllabus.



After reviewing the feedbacks related to the draft syllabus for NEET-UG, Medical Council of India(MCI) has declared the final syllabus for  National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to MBBS courses across the country.

The new syllabus is established after reviewing the various syllabii of state boards, NCERT, CBSE and COBSE.

The new syllabus establishes a uniformity across the country while including the major areas related to medical education from various parts of the country.
