NEET 2021 Exam Pattern Changed: Optional Questions Introduced, Total No of Question Increased



NEET 2021 Exam Pattern: The National Testing Agency has made several changes to the NEET 2021 examination design. The National Testing Agency has agreed to introduce internal alternatives for the NEET 2021 examinations, with the goal of rationalizing school board syllabus reductions. According to the exam format, the NEET UG 2021 examination contains Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, with Part A and Part B.


Revised Exam Pattern: According to the new design, the first section of the question paper will consist of 35 mandatory questions, while the second section will consist of 15 questions, of which students must answer ten. According to the information provided, each subject will have two portions, each with 35 and 15 questions, resulting in the same total number of questions and time usage. This was introduced to help school boards rationalize their decision to reduce the syllabus. For the JEE Main examinations, a similar option was introduced, in which candidates will be offered 30 optional questions from which they must answer 25. 


Marking Scheme: In the JEE Main, there will be no negative marking for optional responses; however, in the NEET 2021 tests, there will be negative marking for erroneous answers. According to the marking scheme, correct answers will receive four points, while incorrect ones will receive one point. If more than one option is proven to be accurate after the Answer key challenge process, all or any of the numerous correct or best answers marked by the students will be granted four marks. The online application process for the NEET 2021 examinations was just launched by the National Testing Agency. Students who want to take the NEET UG 2021 exams can go to the official website to finish the registration and application process. The NEET-UG 2021 examinations are planned to take place on September 12, 2021, according to the dates provided.


NEET:  The National Entrance Cumulative Eligibility Test, or NEET, is a national-level entrance exam for Indian medical schools. The National Testing Agency conducts it once a year (NTA). The President signed the National Medical Commission Act of 2019 on August 8, 2019. The National Medical Commission Act of 2019, Section 14, requires all medical institutions, including those controlled by other laws, to administer a common and uniform National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to undergraduate medical courses. As a result, NEET will be used to admit students to AIIMS, New Delhi, JIPMER, and other AIIMS-affiliated institutes for MBBS programs (NMC Act, 2019). The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare's Directorate General of Health Services is in charge of accepting online applications, conducting the entrance exam, releasing the results, and delivering the All India Rank to the NTA.
