NEET UG Biology Exam Analysis

The National Testing Agency or NTA successfully conducted the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Undergraduate), NEET UG 2024 on 05-05- 2024 (Sunday) in pen and paper mode in 13 languages as a common. Exam was conducted from 02:00 p.m. to 05:20 p.m. (Indian Standard Time) across 499 cities throughout India as well as cities outside India.


The Question Paper of NEET UG 2024 exam consists of 200 questions from which candidates had to attempt 180 questions. Each question had four marks. The correct answer gives four marks and the wrong answer deducts one mark. These 200 questions were divided into four subject-wise sections (Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology). Each of these sections has subsections (A and B). In Section A, all the questions were compulsory and in Section B, one had to attempt any 10 questions out of 15 in each subject.
