What are the changes in NEET PG 2024?
Changes to the NEET 2024 Exam
The National Medical Commission (NMC) has implemented several revisions to the NEET UG 2024 entrance examination. Regarding the syllabus, the number of chapters has been reduced from 97 to 79, with certain topics removed from physics, chemistry, and biology, while also introducing new topics. The goal of these syllabus changes is to focus on core concepts.
Additionally, the exam questions have been adjusted to increase the number of single-choice questions. This change aims to make the test more challenging and reduce the potential for guessing answers correctly.
The exam pattern now involves grading the test on a total of 720 marks. Each subject area of physics, chemistry, and biology is divided into two sections (Section A and Section B). Furthermore, Indian citizens seeking to pursue medical studies abroad must qualify for and pass the NEET UG 2024 exam.
Previous years of NEET data show the difficulty level is considered moderate to difficult. Specifically, general category candidates needed a score ranging from 720 to 137 marks to pass, while scheduled caste/scheduled tribe/other backward caste candidates saw a passing range between 136 to 107 marks.
What is the paper pattern of NEET PG 2024?
The National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) 2024 exam paper will consist of 200 multiple choice questions spread across three subjects: Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (Botany and Zoology). Each subject will carry 45 questions, with a total of 720 marks available.
It is anticipated that the NEET 2024 exam format will remain consistent with the prior year. According to the NEET 2024 scoring guidelines, each question carries 4 marks and 1 mark will be deducted for each incorrect answer.
The maximum score allocated for each section of the NEET 2024 exam is 180 marks, with 140 marks available in Section A and 40 marks in Section B.
