Biology  (Botany + Zoology )90 (45 + 45)360 (180 + 180)
Total180 Questions720 Marks

Scheme of marks in NEET 2020

  • It is alright to skip questions if you don’t know the answer.

NEET 2020 papers and their pattern examination

NEET 2020 for Physics

  • Electrodynamics can have almost 9-10 questions.
  • One of the most important topic having maximum weightage is Mechanics.
  • Most of the questions involve lengthy calculations.
  • So, it is necessary to remember all the formulas.

Pro Tip – Go through the ‘Points to Ponder’ section at the end of each chapter in Physics and the examples given in NCERT Books for better understanding.

NEET 2020 for Chemistry

  • A load of questions came from the class XII syllabus for NEET 2019.
  • Application based questions have also increased in number.
  • Organic Chemistry has gained prominence than Inorganic Chemistry, so 16-17 questions from Organic Chemistry is a possibility.
  • Combination questions are formed taking two different concepts together.

Pro Tip – Attention needs to be paid to the Chemical Bonding and Coordination Compounds. They will consume a lot of time and will have a lot of weightage. Go through the NCERT books of class 11 and 12.

NEET 2020 for Biology

  • Botany and Zoology comprising of 45 questions each will be present.
  • Almost 46 out of 90 questions werwe from the class XII syllabus in NEET 2019.
  • NCERT syllabus is where the Maximum questions are asked from. Hence, the students should spend more time on NCERT, instead of reference books.

Pro Tip – Human Physiology has the highest weightage. Genetics too has been a favorite of NEET over the years, and along with Human Physiology, they both cover almost 30 questions in the Biology section.
