  • The exam will be 3 hours long; in pen-and-paper mode
  • The question paper will be available in English or Hindi
  • The question paper will consist of 45 questions each from Physics and Chemistry and 90 questions from Biology; making it a total of 180 questions
  • 4 marks will be awarded for each correct answer, while 1 mark will be deducted for each incorrect answer
  • The paper will be worth a maximum of 720 marks


  • It is very important to have a thorough understanding of the NCERT syllabus which is the main material for the type of questions set by CBSE.
  • Certain subtopics are extremely important for NEET. If you find that you are weak in a subtopic listed in the above article, spend more time reading that first; for these topics are and have been in focus for the past few years.
  • Don’t just read stuff;remember it. NEET won’t test you solely on your concepts; there’ll be a lot of cramming required as well. Read about how to remember stuff you read here.
  • Solve past year papers and sample papers. Find as many NEET/AIPMT question papers and sample papers as you can and then attempt them. Allow yourself only 3 hours for each paper and ensure you attempt them in an exam-like atmosphere to help you manage time and deal with pressure.
  • Analyse your performance across tests and come up with a good strategy to tackle the real paper.
  • Consider keeping revision notes. Maintain them by jotting down any new formulas or concepts you come across, in the form of bullet points. These will come in handy when the exams are close and will help you revise much faster. Without these notes, you'll have to resort to reading through the entire chapter again, which will only waste valuable time.
  • Practice is half your NEET preparation. Try solving different types of problems in Physics, and improve your speeds in Biology and Chemistry. Toppr offers you an extensive question bank where you can practice fresh questions to test your knowledge, accuracy, and speed.
