Studying for the NEET exam could be a little bit easier if the weightage of the chapter you study is known. This helps the students to focus on the chapters which weigh most first, then focus on the chapters that have less weightage at the last. Knowing the weightage will make the process more effective and save a lot of time for the students to cover a lot of topics. NEET exam consists of questions from three main subjects, they are Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Almost all of the questions which will be asked for the NEET exam will be from these three subjects.

NEET Exam Pattern – 2022 

Exam mode Regular pen and paper
Exam Duration 3 hours and 20 minutes
Exam Total Question 200 Questions. 180 needs to be answered
Exam Subject wise questions Physics – 35 +15 Questions

Chemistry – 35 + 15 Questions

Botany– 35 + 15 Questions

Zoology – 35 + 15 Questions

Exam total marks 720 marks
Exam mark scheme +4 for every right answer

-1 for every wrong answer

0 for unattended answer

The exam will be conducted like any other classic regular pen and paper with strict rules for malpractice. The students will be given a total of 3 hours and 20 minutes to attend 180 questions. If the student answers all the 180 questions they can score a total of 720 marks. For every correct answer a total of 4 marks is issued, for every wrong answer a negative mark is given. Unattended answers will be assigned with no marks.

Biology holds the maximum number of marks in the NEET exam. Students must concentrate on biology a lot more than Physics or Chemistry. The weightage of the marks in Biology almost covers half the marks in the NEET question paper. Thus biology acts as an important subject in preparing for the NEET exam.
