NEET Syllabus

The Ministry of Education had earlier clarified that the medical entrance test, NEET, will be held as per the syllabus determined by NTA irrespective of the reduction in 2021 board exam syllabus.

“The exact pattern for NEET (UG) 2021 is yet to be announced. However, in view of the reduction of the syllabus by some boards across the country, the NEET (UG) 2021 question paper will also have options on the lines of JEE Main,” an official statement from the ministry read.

“The syllabus of JEE and NEET will remain unchanged for the year 2021. However, unlike previous years, this year the candidates will have options to answer the questions in JEE and NEET examinations,” it added.

As per the current NEET paper pattern, the exam has 180 questions for a total of 720 marks.

NEET Last Year

Last year, NEET 2020 was conducted on September 13 and October 14 amid the COVID-19 restrictions. The medical aspirants had to face several problems such as travelling to examination centres in absence of proper public transport and wearing gloves and masks during the examination. This year, the situation remains the same with respect to the COVID-19 outbreak.

NEET 2020 dates were declared on May 5 following a whole lot of confusion regarding the mode of examination. There had been talks about the cancellation of NEET 2020 due to rising COVID-19 cases but after repeated calls from the candidates to hold the paper, the government had finally announced the dates.
