Question Types in NEET EXAM

What is NEET EXAM? 

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), formerly the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) is an entrance examination in India for students who wish to study graduate and postgraduate medical courses and dental courses in government colleges and high rated dental colleges.

What is the NEET COURSE?

NEET UG Replaces AIIMS and MBBS. With AIIMS  and MBBS admissions also brought under NEET. NEET is the only medical examination for all candidates who wish to apply MBBS or BDS courses in the country.


NEET EXAM Is a Comprehensive Exam including questions from Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. This test will help you to get a proper idea about the type of questions that will be asked, in the exam pattern scheme. After giving the test, he/she can immediately check their own score.

NEET  Exam pattern: Why is it important?

Knowing the exam pattern of NEETExam is as important as knowing the syllabus. A candidate who is already aware of the exam pattern will have better preparation and will be able to perform much better in the examination. For example, a candidate who knows the exam pattern of NEETExam will know about the negative marking system. This will prevent him/her from marking the answers that he/she is not at all sure about.


Candidates must have cleared class 12th or with equivalent subjects ie: Chemistry, Physics, and Biology.


The Exam Analysis Of NEET Question Paper will help candidates get an idea of the difficulty level of the examination. With the help of this analysis, they can prepare well for exams.

The question paper of NEET is of moderate difficulty level. Among the Section, Biology paper comes easiest. The candidate who appears for NEET finds the Physics section lengthy and time-consuming.

Exam Duration: Exam Duration will be of a maximum of three hours.

Subjects: The Paper will be composed of four sections: Physics, Chemistry,  Biology, and Zoology.

Question Paper Language: The Language of questions will be in English, Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi and Urdu.


The physics section of NEET is almost a difficult section. It comprises of 45 questions and was dominated by questions from mechanics. Electrodynamics, modern physics and electronics together comprise 40%to 50% of the Physics section.


This section of the NEET question paper is dominated by NCERT based questions. The 45 questions that comprise this section had more theoretical questions this year. 60% of the total number of questions asked is easy and candidates could score well in this section.


The biology section is the easiest section in the question paper of NEET. 62% of the questions in this section are easy and 31% are of moderate level. Biology section of NEET exam question paper is a very very important section because it has the maximum weightage. Thus, this section being easy could help candidates score well in the examination every year.

Weightage Of Questions Of Each Subject:

  1. Physics:45
  2. Chemistry: 45
  3. Biology:45
  4. Zoology:45

Total: 180

All subjects will carry equal marks.

Negative Marking: There will be Negative Marking in all this NEET examination, one mark will be deducted for each incorrect response.

Candidates note down multiple answers for one question that will lead to negative marking.

How to prepare for NEET Exam?

The preparation phase of any examination can be broken down into only two parts: best preparation tips and the best books. To excel in any examination a candidate needs to be in a perfect combination of these important two. 

What are the minimum marks required to clear individual sections of NEET?

There is no section cut off for the upcoming NEET Exam. The merit list is prepared on the basis of the total marks scored by the candidate in the NEET examination.

Mock tests and sample papers

The preparation for any examination is incomplete without solving the NEET previous year’s mock test papers. NEET preparation also requires you to solve NEETsample papers and give the mock tests. There are three things that you need do while solving the sample papers/previous year’s paper

  • Try to solve the test at one time.
  • Try to set  time for yourself while solving the test
  • Analyze the result and try to figure out which topics you need more work done.

NEET preparation tips given above will help you kick start your NEETpreparation, but the ultimate preparation strategy has to be designed by you. Each mind is different, thus the preparation strategy will also be different according to one’s talent. Set your own space/rules, and strictly stick to it.

Foundation first:

The physics and Chemistry section of NEETcomprises both theoretical and numerical questions. Those who believe in mugging everything up everything can solve the theory portion, but what about the numerical(main) section? It is also important to understand the concepts and basics.

Example: Let’s take Ohm’s law for instance. There can be any two types of questions from this topic:

What does the letter ‘I’ stand for in Ohm’s Law in physics?

If you are increasing the voltage across a resistor, what will happen to the current?

In the above situation, candidates who have read the law find the very first question easy. The second question, on the other hand, require a knowledge of the basic concept of Ohm’s Law. It is therefore important to understand the concept and theory. As they say “You can’t build a huge building on a very weak foundation.”

Understanding the examination pattern of NEET Exam:

The next and important step for NEET preparation is to understand the type of questions that can be asked in the examination. Refer to the previous years’ NEET question papers and mock tests. You can also find out the topics which have more weightage in the examination by doing this method.

Smart-study is the key:

The syllabus for NEET Exam is vast, and it is practically impossible to know everything! It is therefore important to choose and study the right material and also be wise in selecting the main topics that have to be mainly prioritized. Also, NEET Exam is an undergraduate level examination and the candidate is not expected to solve B.Sc. level questions. This is where smart and intelligent study comes into action.

Best Books to Study In NEET Exam:

The markets are full of books on NEET preparation, but to excel in this examination, one must pick the right book one from a shelf. The best books for NEET Exam are those which help you understand the subject better. NEET books should be picked according to your level of preparation. 

Below are some of the important books one should refer to:
