Having applied for the exam, the first step would be to start preparing for the test. Since the competition is high and seats less, qualifying with a very good NEET score will require some amount of good preparation. While there are no hard fast rules to crack NEET, some basic guidelines have to be followed to qualify with a high score. some important rules to know are:

Understand the NEET Syllabus - This will allow candidates to know which chapters they have to study in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This will also allow them to have an idea of the depth of the topics and syllabus to be covered

Know the NEET Exam Pattern - Well, knowing how many questions to answer, time limit within which to answer the questions, marks awarded, negative marking if any - these are some tips that will ensure that candidates are well conversant with the exam and will know exactly how things will be in the actual exam.

A timetable just for you - Having a daily schedule with a provision that allows candidates to keep track of the levels of their preparation will do wonders for preparation purposes. This timetable should allow for week wise and month wise strategy for preparation. Adhering to this is an important factor for success in NEET.

Mock Tests and Sample Papers of NEET - Studying alone will not help. Practice helps perfect it. So the past question papers, mock tests and sample papers are good tools for this. Candidates can understand how best to strategize, improve their speed and manage their time on the exam day.

Stress Free NEET Preparation - While it is a fact that the immense competition builds on the stress on any NEET aspirant, it is also true that a correct plan will reduce some of  the stress. Candidates must keep to the timetable but also give time to their minds to relax. No one can study all day long and this is something that needs to e understood well. So some time to relax with hobbies, activities like singing, listening to music, playing a game or two, spending time with friends etc is equally important.

The official date schedule released by NTA clearly mentions that NEET 2020 is a pen and paper based exam to be held in three hours. Candidates have to mark their answers in the NEET OMR sheet provided to them at the exam centres. NEET question paper will contain questions from Biology (Botany+Zoology), Physics and Chemistry. NEET Syllabus is of 10+2 standard. The detailed exam pattern of NEET 2020 is as follows.

Every exam has its share of happy students who have done well and students who may not have performed as per their expectations. What can be always learnt from all is how to adapt in case of adverse situations, how best to make out of a bad situation, how to overcome all odds etc. Student reactions for NEET 2020 will be provided on May 3 from the exam centres while the exam is held and after it concludes. However past year student reactions can give a glimpse into those last minute thoughts before the commencement of the exam and the mixed feelings once the exam is done.

NEET 2019 - post exam student reactions 

Most students agreed that a major chunk of the questions asked were NCERT based. The paper was found relatively easy as compared to NEET 2018 with Physics and Biology being found easier compared to Chemistry. The scoring could be higher on account of the easy paper with NEET cutoffs expected to go higher than the previous year.

Some of the pre NEET reactions in 2019 are

Keshab who was writing NEET for the second time had undergone coaching from Allen Kota. His strategy was to aim and answer all question he knew to score a good rank. He felt he would do good in Physics which was his forte while depending on his intense preparation for Biology and Chemistry to pay off.

Shivam who was from Panipat was attempting NEET exam for the first time and was relying on his self study not having releied on any coaching. His strong point being Biology, he looked forward to do well in the exam.

Saaksh from Bahadurgarh, Haryana wished to pusue MBBS from AFMC. Biology being her strong point, she wished that this second NEET attempt of hers would be successful.

The analysis of any exam can be only given after the exam concludes. However, previous year exam analysis always helps understand what the trends may be like. NEET analysis for 2019 is given here to enable students to gain an insight from the experiences of those who have written the exam last year. The expert opinion has also been added as this adds to the weightage of what to expect, how best to prepare. The exam analysis for NEET 2020 will be updated here on May 3 after the conclusion of the exam.

NEET Analysis by Students who appeared in 2019

Mariam Khan from Aligarh, found that most of the questions were from NCERT. Having done her coaching from her home town, she felt that the paper was relatively easy and could have be tackled with strategic preparation. She found no glitches in the NEET exam that day.

Mayank for whom this was the second attempt, found Physics and Chemistry to be easy as compared to Biology. He felt that about 40% of the questions were from the NCERT syllabus and expected to score anywhere between 450-550 marks. His ambition is to pursue medicine from Maulana Azad Medical College.

For Sumita, this attempt was relatively easier compared to the 2018 one with Physics being more easy as compared to the other subjects. Again she felt that questions were predominantly from NCERT and faced no technical glitches in her exam.  

Expert Analysis for NEET 2019

Mr. Shailendra Maheshwari (Career Point) found that "Physics questions were equally from Class 11 and 12 syllabus with emphasis on Mechanics and Modern Physics which covered 50% of the questions asked. Current Electricity and Magnetic Effect of Current questions were easy ones. Physical Chemistry dominated the Chemistry section with 19 questions while 14 and 12 questions were from Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, respectively. Biology paper was moderate with 40 questions from Zoology and 50 questions from Botany."

Resonance Experts felt that questions from Biology and Chemistry were moderate while Physics was difficult for most. They opined  that 452 questions were easy, 200 were moderate and 60 were difficult. As the paper was relatively easier compared to 2018, the cutoffs could go high they felt.

Only students who qualify in NEET will be eligible for the counselling subject to certain regulations.

NEET counselling is generally held in two rounds followed by a mop-up round for any vacant seats left after the first two rounds. Candidates must apply for the counselling as per their eligibility. An important point to note is that all candidates who qualify in NEET 2020 will be eligible to apply for the All India counselling. However, for the respective state counselling processes, admissions will be based on factors like domicile, residency in state etc. Candidates must check whether they meet the state admission criteria before applying for the state counselling.

NEET seat allotment will be based on the All India Rank of the applicants, choice of colleges entered, seat availability, reservation criteria etc.

Aiims and jipmer has cancelled then the cutt off of neet would be low or high

Apoorva Student Expert 30th Mar, 2020

Hello dear student,

Yes dear student AIIMS and JIPMER have been called off the shelves and like a these two bodies used to conduct their own entrance test for the students who wanted to get admission in Medical in MBBS or BDS. But they have combined in NEET only which will be conducted by NTA . This is the first time exam is going to be conducted like this but probably the possibility is that the cutoff will be higher in comparison to the past cutoffs of Neet. I hope this information is helpful to you

Thank you

i have physics, chemistry maths with computer science and English. is there any way i can be eligible for NEET like doing bio from open school or appearing as private candidate if Im willing to take a drop year?

Shruti Jha Student Expert 29th Mar, 2020


Its a difficult yet not impossible task.

Being a pcm branch student till 12th standard doesn't allow you to sit in the neet examination.

But yes, if you really wants to go for mbbs/bds/any medical field for your higher studies then you can opt biology as a course through private or nios boards.

According to different eligibility criterias of neet, nios or private board students are also eligible for neet exams.

The details of this are as-

NEET examination code 2:

Candidates who have completed a period of 12 years under Higher/Secondary examination or the Indian School Certificate Examination (ISCE), which is equivalent to Class 10+2 can opt code 2. However, the last two years of study must include English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology or Mathematics or any other elective as a major subject as prescribed by the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT).

Aspirants who have passed 10+2 from National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) or state open school, as a private candidate from state boards; with Biology/Biotechnology as an additional subject can apply under NEET qualification code 2.

Who can also apply code 2: It should also be noted that the qualifying examination code for NEET 2020 for droppers will also be the same. For instance, a candidate has passed qualifying examination from CBSE/ISCE or any state board in the year 2018, but wish to appear for NEET 2020, he/she can apply for the exam with Code 2.

For more details and informations you can check out the official sites too .

Hope this will help you out.

Good luck.


In Neet marks which sub mark plays an important role in deciding the seat whether physics or bio?? . If suppose 2 students got the same marks how will be the ranking in AIR whether it depends on physics percentile or bio percentile???.

Saisrinandan Ch 29th Mar, 2020


When two candidates get the same marks, then the issue is resolved using the tie breaker policy.

In case of NEET UG, the tie breaker policy gives more importance to Biology.

So, if A scores 300 in Bio and B scores 265 but their total score is same, then A is preferred.

Tie breaker policy doesn't include marks of Physics to resolve such issues.

Only Marks of Bio,Chem and then less number of incorrect answers and finally DOB are considered. (in the same order)

Hope this helps.



If i get 320 marks in neet will i get mbbs seat in govt College in India. since i belongs to OBC category. I am from state Kerala, District Palakkad

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 30th Mar, 2020

320 marks in NEET won't help you to get a seat in any government colleges of Kerala even if you are from OBC Category. Going by previous year home state quota cutoff, you should score at least 500+ marks in NEET to get a seat in government medical colleges in Kerala.

All the best!
