Previous Years NEET Papers
Previous Years NEET Papers : Since the past few years, the NEET exam has replaced all state level and other medical entrance examinations (except AIIMS and JIPMER) as the common medical entrance exam for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in medical colleges across the country. Earlier, NEET was conducted by CBSE, but from 2019 onwards, it will be conducted by the newly set-up National Testing Agency (NTA).
Previous Years NEET Papers for exam preparation
The exam consists of multiple-choice objective-type questions on Physics, Chemistry and Biology from Class 11 and 12 syllabi. The topics are largely those covered in the NCERT textbooks for class 11 and 2, however, one may need to study the topics in greater detail than given in these books. Some popular books for the NEET exam are Fundamentals of Biology, Class 11 and Class 12; JD Lee’s Concise Inorganic Chemistry for NEET; Plancess AIPMT Physics; Objective Biology for NEET; Botany for NEET; Plancess Zoology for NEET.
The NEET exam consists of a single paper of fixed duration – 3 hours and must be completed within the allotted time. Thus, it is necessary to practice sample papers and previous years’ papers regularly to improve speed and accuracy. Wiley’s 17 Years’ Solved NEET Papers 2002-2018 consist of AIPMT and NEET papers from 2002 with solutions. There are also 3 mock tests at the end of the book. Ideally, you should start doing one mock test a week at least 8-10 months before the exam and increase it to 2-3 papers a week 2 months before the exam. Make sure you keep a log of questions you’ve done incorrectly and revise these repeatedly. Also, look up the solutions to all questions, even the ones you’ve done correctly.
Besides using previous years NEET papers, you can also refer to the books Objective Physics for NEET, Objective Chemistry for NEET, Objective Biology for NEET. These contain questions from previous years’ NEET papers, as well as additional questions for NEET, arranged in a topic-wise manner. Solving as many questions, as accurately and as fast as possible is the key to cracking the NEET exam.
