Prior to starting with the blueprint of NEET exam, one should be completely aware of what is NEET with reference to. So, NEET is an undergraduate examination which stands for National Eligibility cum entrance test. This test is for those students who wish to do any graduate medical course whether it is MMBS or BDS or postgraduate course like MD OR MS from any medical college. The college can be private as well as Government College. NEET exam has replaced all-India pre-medical tests (AIPMT) exam since last few years. NEET exam is conducted by the system of the central board of secondary education (CBSE). This exam provides most of the seats to candidates.

Here comes the pattern for this exam:

A number of questions:

The page is in the outward appearance of OMR answers. Examination hall itself will provide all the basic stationary to students; they don’t have to bring their own. There will be 180 questions in all. Questions are from three subjects i.e. Physics, chemistry, and biology. The division of 180 questions is in this way: 45 from physics, 45 from chemistry and 90 questions from biology.

There are objectives questions in the question manuscript. Every question will have 4 options and students will have to choose the most excellent suitable answer among those options. Also, there are diverse sets of question paper so that students don’t cheat. There are 4 sets of question paper in all. Though there are same questions in all the sets they are arranged in order like chalk and cheese. This means they are arranged in altered order.

The Medium of Language:

The question paper is conducted in 10 languages namely, English, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Oriya, Assamese and Kannada. Whichever language the student has selected, they will get the question paper in that language only. One cannot transform the language after selecting it at the initial case in point.
