NEET (UG) exam is conducted by an autonomous organisation called the NTA – National Testing Agency. Qualifying this exam will provide admissions into various medical courses like BDS, MBBS, BAMS, BHMS, BUMS and BSMS. Also, the National Medical Commission Act (2019) made it a compulsory exam for every medical aspirant to enter their desired institutions. Now, let’s have a quick look at the registration process and syllabus for this exam.
This eligibility-cum-entrance exam is a 3-hour duration test. The exam timings are provided on the admit card, along with the date and venue. The NEET (UG) is an OMR-sheet based MCQ assessment that has two sections (A and B). Section A has 35 compulsory questions, and section B has 15 questions, out of which candidates can attempt any 10.
Each subject (Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Physics) has 45 such questions to be answered. Thus a total of 180 questions are to be attempted in 3 hours. Each question carries 4 marks, and unattended questions carry no marks. But, each incorrect answer will fetch a -1 mark.
NMC (National Medical Commission) has devised this syllabus after reviewing various state boards, CBSE and COBSE curriculums to ensure uniformity. The focus subjects for NEET are Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Also, it is mandatory for the candidates to have studied these subjects in their Class 12.
