The NEET 2023 question papers with solutions PDFs were released by various coaching institutes after the conclusion of the exam. NEET previous year question papers had four sets, E, F, G and H which were further divided into six sub-sets. The NEET question paper is available in 13 languages

Q:   How many Sets are there in the NEET question paper?

A:
There are generally four Sets of NEET question papers, which are further segregated into six parts. The names of the NEET 2023 question paper Sets and codes were E, F, G and H. The multiple Sets and codes in the NEET question papers ensure that there is no malpractice in the conduct of the exam. The names of the Sets and codes of the regional NEET question papers are different from the English ones. While distributing the question papers of NEET invigilators had to ensure that they did not give the same set question paper to two consecutive candidates. Once candidates are given the NEET question paper by invigilators, they need to check whether the question paper and test booklet, or answer sheet is of the same code. In case of a mismatch, they need to bring the matter to the invigilators notice. In case they submit the NEET test booklet with a different code from that of the NEET question paper, their exam will stand cancelled.

Q:   Do all the Sets of NEET 2023 question papers carry the same questions?

A:
Although the questions are the same in all Sets of the NEET 2023 question paper, the order of the sections and questions vary from set to set. The different order of the sections and questions ensure that there is no malpractice conducted during the exam. Even if some questions are absolutely different in separate Sets or languages, the topics and chapters covered and difficulty level remain similar to ensure normalisation. Hence, it can be said that NTA Sets a common question paper carrying 200 questions, after which the questions are distributed across four Sets and six subsets of the NEET question paper. The subjects, and the questions within the subjects are shuffled for each of the NEET question paper Sets. This allows a parity in terms of topics covered and difficulty level, as well as allows avoidance of malpractice.

Q:   What type of questions are there in the NEET question papers?

A:
The question types in the NEET question paper is objective and multiple-choice type. Each question carries four answer options. The difficulty level of the questions range from moderate to tough. The questions are asked from the prescribed NEET syllabus. Since NEET is a paper-pencil-based test (PBT), test-takers are given OMR sheet wherein they have to mark the correct answer option through blue or black ballpoint pen provided at the exam centre. While leaving the exam centre, candidates will have to submit the test booklet or the OMR sheet and rough sheet booklet to the invigilator. They will be allowed to carry the NEET question paper with them, outside the exam hall.

Q:   What is the difficulty level of NEET UG?

A:
The difficulty level of NEET 2023 was easy to moderate. As compared to last year, the difficulty level of the exam was easier. While Physics was the toughest section last year, this year it was of easy level. Chemistry was of moderate level of difficulty last year. This year, the difficulty level was the toughest for this section. The Biology section consisted of Botany and Zoology. Botany questions were tougher than that of Zoology. The majority of the questions were NCERT-based, which were of easy difficulty level. There were some analytical questions, which were tough. Overall, the difficulty level of NEET 2023 subjects was moderate and the paper was manageable according to the candidates.
 

Q:   What is the correct way of answering the NEET question paper?

A:
Candidates will be provided with OMR sheets. They will have to shade the correct answer option corresponding to each question uniformly with a ballpoint pen which would be provided to them inside the exam hall. They should fill only one answer option circle, otherwise, the response will be considered as wrong and would result in negative marking. They will have to do the rough work on the NEET question paper, in the space provided. While answering the NEET question paper on the OMR sheet, candidates must be careful that they select the correct question number and fill up the correct answer option. There are cases where candidates solve the question and deduce the correct option, but make a mistake while filling the OMR sheet by not checking the question number or the answer option carefully. Such mistakes can cause a negative marking of one mark.
 

Q:   What if I find a question that is out of the syllabus or with wrong answer options in the NEET question paper?

A:
In such a scenario, test-takers should report the question or questions to the invigilator or exam authorities and not attempt the question. The exam authorities will review the questions and in case the doubt is confirmed, marks will be rewarded to all candidates. It is advised to candidates that in case candidates come across such a question, they should move ahead and attempt other questions in accordance with the number of questions to be attempted. Attempting extra questions will not fetch any extra marks. Hence, test-takers must select the questions carefully. In case after raising objections it is found out that the question or the answer option is wrong, then NTA will award marks to all candidates. NTA has identified and shared the marking scheme for such situations: a. If more than one option is found to be correct then Four marks (+4) will be awarded to only those who have marked any of the correct options. B. If all options are found to be correct then Four marks (+4) will be awarded to all those who have attempted the question. C. If a question is found to be incorrect or the Question is dropped then Four marks (+4) will be awarded to all those who have attempted the question. The reason could be due to human error or technical error.

Note: The NEET 2022 question paper PDFs and solutions have been provided by experts from top coaching institutes in India. The official NEET question papers of 2022 will be provided as and when they are released by NTA.

Q:   Who sets the NEET question paper?

A:
NTA is the authority behind the question paper of NEET. The questions are sent in by different professors and NTA selects the questions for the examination. No single person is responsible for designing the question paper. Generally the NEET question papers are set by an expert committee or panel of subject experts who later review the answer key challenges. Candidates may find questions from previous years' NEET question papers as well. This is why experts suggest solving previous years' question papers for NEET preparation.
 

Q:   Are candidates allowed to carry the NEET question papers outside the exam hall?

A:
Yes, candidates are allowed to carry the NEET question papers outside the exam hall after completing the exam and submitting the OMR sheets. Since NEET is conducted in a single day and single slot window, there is no restriction on taking the NEET question paper outside the exam hall. NTA also uploads question papers of NEET for each year and sets/codes on the official website. Moreover, experts from top NEET coaching institutes also release the question papers of NEET for one or multiple Sets along with solutions and answer keys. Candidates can refer to the solutions and NEET answer keys to calculate the estimated score in the exam. Based on this, they can also decide which questions to file objections against, once NTA would release the provisional NEET answer keys and open the challenge submission process.
 

Q:   Is it useful to solve the previous years NEET question papers?

A:
Yes, in fact solving the question papers of previous years is an integral part of the preparation phase. They help the candidate familiarise themselves with the paper pattern and help them prepare an exam day strategy. Students must ensure that they solve the NEET question papers in a proctored manner, I. e. within the stipulated timing and duration and in one go, without any breaks. Students should ideally start solving the previous years' NEET question papers once they complete the syllabus. Another way to utilise previous years' NEET question papers is to solve the subject-wise questions separately, after completing the syllabus of each subject, students should solve the subject-wise questions from NEET question papers followed by the full-length question paper.

Q:   What is the ideal time and method to take NEET mock tests?

A:
Candidates must ensure that they take the NEET mock test in a proctored manner within a simulated environment. Hence, ideally students should take mock test in the exam timing, from 2 PM to 5.20 PM, without any break. This would help them get adjusted to the exam taking environment. Moreover, the test should be taken without any break. It must also be ensured that they take the test in a quite environment either alone or with a group of fellow NEET aspirants. Creating a simulated test-taking experience is important. While a number of students take the NEET mock tests at coaching institutes, some prefer to take it at their home. Irrespective of the location, the above factors must be followed to get the best out of the NEET mock test.
 

Q:   Should I opt for sectional or full-length mock test for NEET?

A:
During the preparation period of NEET both sectional as well as full length mock tests are useful. The sectional mock tests have to be taken after completing each subject. This would help you to gauge your preparation level and also help in understanding the areas of improvement. Once the entire NEET syllabus is completed, you should take full-length mock tests to assess the entire preparation. Generally students tend to take the NEET mock tests three to four months prior to the exam. Hence, when it comes to the final stage of preparation, ideally students should take full-length mock tests. However, if a student wants to revise a particular section or subject, then it is advisable that they take sectional mock tests or revision or practice purpose.
 

Q:   How should I analyse my NEET mock tests?

A:

NEET 2024 mock tests must be analysed by the mentors of experts after the tests where they would point out the mistakes and suggest rectifications. They would also help in improving a faster and more effective way to solve a particular question. The analysis will help students identify their strong and weak areas and based on this, a better and improved preparation strategy would be suggested to them by the experts. Abiding the feedback based on the NEET 2024 mock test analysis will help improve their performance. At the last month before the test, there is not much scope left for the preparation. Hence, at the last few days before the exam, after the analysis of NEET mock test, aspirants should focus on finalising the test-taking strategy.

  • Now use the following formula to calculate your marks

Marks scored = (Total no. of correct answers*4) - (Total no. of Incorrect answers)

Example: Out of 150 attempted questions, you got 100 correct.

Marks scored = (100*4)-50 = 400 – 50 = 350

*Note that no marks will be deducted for the questions that have not been attempted by the candidate.

First, they should understand the reason for not scoring well in those areas. It could either be lack of conceptual understanding, or silly mistakes. In case of the former, they should go back to the basics and study each chapter and topics carefully. They must not leave any doubt or query unattended.

They should solve the questions separately on the space provided for rough work, and then shade the answer option on the OMR sheet to avoid such errors. Revision after completing the exam is also important.
