Brijesh Maheshwari, director of the Allen Career Institute, said that NEET’s paper overall was normal this year. So students can score more marks this time. Cut off is also likely to be more this time.
There was confusion among students regarding the language of each question in Physics and Biology. Physical chemistry was easy in the chemistry. In other subjects, there was a general paper like last year, but some questions remained different this time. At the same time, the NCERT syllabus was completely followed. Difficulty level was low. According to the marking pattern, 4 marks will be given for each correct answer. 1 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. No marks will be given or deducted for unanswered questions.
Physics paper was average. Out of the 45 questions, 17 questions were based on 11th class and 28 questions on 12th class syllabus. The level of 33 questions in the paper was easy and 11 were moderate. There was only 1 question whose level is considered difficult. 10 questions were asked from Mechanics Topic. While 5 questions were asked from Heat Topic, 2 from SHM & Waves, 14 from Electrodynamics, 4 from Optics and 10 from Modern & Electronics Topic. Basic Math and Vectors, WPE & Circular Motion in Mechanics, Sound Waves and Doppler Effect in SHM and Waves, Thermal expansion in Thermal Physics, Heat Transfer, EM in Electro Dynamics and Wave Optics in Optics, no questions were asked.
Chemistry paper gave relief to the students. The paper was easy. A total of 45 questions were asked, of which the level of 25 questions was quite easy. Similarly, 17 questions were of moderate level and 3 questions were difficult. The maximum 24 questions were based on 12th class syllabus.

Apart from this, 15 questions were asked from Inorganic Chemistry and 14 from Organic Chemistry. The level of paper of inorganic chemistry was similar to the year 2019. While the paper of Physical and Organic Chemistry was easier than the year 2019. Almost all the topics were covered but, no questions were asked from Chemical Equilibrium, IUPAC Nomenclature, and Isomerism Topics.
The paper of Biology was easy this time but it was lengthy as well. The level of total 41 questions in the paper was quite easy, 34 medium level and 7 questions were of difficult level. Maximum questions were based on NCERT syllabus. It covered 48 questions from class 11 syllabus while 42 questions were asked from 12th class syllabus.
