Q:   How many questions are necessary to attempt per section in NEET?

A:

The number of questions you should attempt per section in NEET can vary depending on various factors, such as your level of preparation, speed, accuracy, and the difficulty level of the exam. However, it is generally advisable to attempt a sufficient number of questions to maximize your chances of scoring well. In NEET, there are typically 180 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) divided equally among three sections: Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (Botany and Zoology). Each section consists of 45 questions, with each question carrying four marks, and one mark deducted for every incorrect answer (negative marking). To determine the number of questions you should attempt per section, consider the following guidelines: 1. Aim for accuracy: Quality is more important than quantity. It's better to focus on answering questions accurately rather than attempting a large number of questions with a high chance of making mistakes. Accuracy helps you accumulate marks without losing them due to negative marking. 2. Cover the syllabus comprehensively: Ensure that you have prepared all the topics in the NEET syllabus. This will give you the confidence to attempt questions from various areas and maximize your chances of scoring well. If you are well-prepared, you will be able to attempt a higher number of questions per section. 3. Prioritize your strengths: Identify the topics in each section that you are most comfortable with and have a strong grasp of. Start with these questions as they are likely to be answered correctly, boosting your confidence and helping you accumulate marks quickly. 4. Time management: NEET has a strict time limit, so it's crucial to manage your time effectively. Allocate a certain amount of time to each section and aim to answer questions within that timeframe. Avoid spending too much time on any single question, as it can eat into the time you have for other questions. 5. Leave enough time for revision: It's important to have sufficient time at the end of each section to review your answers and make any necessary corrections. This ensures that you haven't made any silly mistakes or overlooked important details. Ultimately, the number of questions you attempt per section will depend on your personal strengths, time management skills, and level of preparation. It's a good idea to practice solving previous years' question papers and mock tests to get an idea of your speed and accuracy. This will help you gauge how many questions you can comfortably attempt within the allotted time and make adjustments accordingly.

Q:   What is a good score in NEET?

A:

In general, a score of 600+ is considered to be good for NEET which will ensure a high rank. However, given the high level of competition, if you wish to get admission to one of the top 10 colleges, then you must score above 700. But if you wish to get an MBBS seat and any of the decent medical colleges in India, then a score of 600+ is required. At the same time, a score of 550 or above may also fetch you an MBBS seat at a medical college towards the end of the counselling rounds. On the other hand, if you are aspiring to pursue a BDS or a B.Sc. Nursing, then a score above 500 should be able to fetch you a seat at a good Dental or Nursing colleges in India. Having said this, by if your score is lower than the marks mentioned above, you need not feel demoralised or demotivated. There are a lot of other medical specialisations or courses through NEET scores and you will always have a good option according to your score.
