Anurag Tiwari, National Academic Director (Medical), Aakash Educational Services Ltd shares his analysis of the NEET 2021 Paper 12th September 2021 (Evening shift).

The NEET 2021 consisted of a total of 200 Questions divided equally among all four subjects, namely Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology. Each subject is further divided into Section A with 35 questions and Section B with 15 questions (out of which only 10 questions are to be attempted) comprising a total of 50 questions.


Physics

  • Difficulty level – Moderate to Difficult
  • Numerical dominated the paper with 70 per cent which is greater as compared to previous years.
  • No controversial question.
  • Tricky questions are asked from Optics, Semi-Conductors, and Photoelectric Effect
  • 4-5 trickier questions also present in both sections A & B
  • Paper was lengthy

The Physics section is of moderate to difficult level. With 70% numerical based questions, we can say this year’s paper is dominated by numerical which is greater as compared to the previous years’. Questions asked from Optics, Semi-Conductors, and Photo-Electric Effect are tricky. 4-5 trickier questions are asked in both Section A & B. However, there is no controversial question. Overall, the Physics section is lengthy.

Chemistry

  • Difficulty level – Easy to Moderate
  • Most of the questions are based on the NCERT figures, facts and tables
  • Most of the questions are based on the fundamentals discussed in the NCERT
  • A large number of statement-based questions are asked
  • A question based on the acidic strength of Halogen Acids is repeated
  • A good number of numerical are asked
  • Approx. 3 Questions based are on graphs and Approx. 5 Questions are of matrix match type
  • Not very lengthy

The Chemistry section is of easy to moderate difficulty level. Most of the questions are based on the NCERT figures, facts and tables. Also, a large number of state-based questions are asked. A majority of questions are based on the fundamentals discussed in the NCERT textbooks. This year a good number of numerical are also asked. There are approx. 3 questions that are graph-based and approx. 5 questions that are of matrix match type. We can also see a question on the acidic strength of Halogen Acids is repeated.

Zoology

  • Difficulty level – Moderate
  • Certain questions appear to be easy at the first glance, but they are twisted and require precision and focus on the keywords
  • The surprise factor is a question on Earthworm which only those would have attempted who were well versed with NCERT
  • Questions are based on the NCERT syllabus.
  • Chapters from Biotechnology have dominated strongly (11-12 questions)
  • The Paper is highly NCERT centric, yet 3-4 questions appear to be highly interlinked requiring deep understanding.
  • In the unit on Human Physiology, approx. 4 questions are asked from Locomotion and Movement 

The Zoology section is of moderate difficulty level. Certain questions do appear easy at the first glance but on careful reading, they are twisted and require precision and focus on the keywords. Questions are NCERT based with a surprise question on Earthworm which only those students could have attempted who are well-versed with the NCERT syllabus. Questions from Biotechnology have strongly dominated this section with approx. 11-12 questions. While the paper is highly NCERT centric yet 3-4 questions appear to be highly interlinked requiring deep understanding. In the unit on Human Physiology, approx. 4 questions are asked from Locomotion and Movement.
