NATIONAL ELIGIBILITY CUM ENTRANCE TEST (UG) 2020 (NEET (UG) - 2020) conducted by National Testing Agency(NTE) is a national level entrance examination which is held for admission in MBBS\BDS, etc. Candidates, who are interested to pursue their careers medical, will have to appear for the NEET exam. Although NEET 2021 exam dates are not yet announced by NTA, the exam is tentative to be held on May 2, 2021.

the Ministry of Education refused regarding the reduction in NEET 2021 exam syllabus
Exam Pattern for NEET 2021:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CBSE cut down 30% of its syllabus, which might impact the students appearing NEET this year. A lot of confusion arose from the reduction of the CBSE class 12th syllabus, basically from the students appearing entrance exams after their board exams. Various questions like 'Will NEET 2021 syllabus be revised?' or 'How to prepare for NEET 2021 without syllabus?' were being asked by the student, through various social media platforms. Union Education Minister, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, put an end to all these questions by addressing in a seminar "The students will only have to study revised syllabus for their NEET, boards and other competitive entrance exams."
Deleted chapters in CBSE impacting NEET :
|Subjects||Class 11||Class 12|
|Biology||11 chapters||5 chapters|
|Physics||some topics from 9 chapters||some portions from 10 chapters|
|Chemistry||Some topics and portions from 14 chapters||Topics from 16 chapters|
Deleted syllabus from CBSE impacting NEET 2021:
The question in these topics and chapters Human physiology, plant physiology, evolution have carried high weightage in NEET in the past years. Other chapters are Transportation in plants, digestion, and absorption, locomotion and movement, ecosystems, environmental issues. Some of the sub-topics were also deleted, like, in neural control and coordination, sub-topics like reflex action; sensory perception, sense organs, and the elementary structure and function of eye and ear have been removed. However, questions on the central nervous system can still be asked in NEET 2021.
Chapters in Physics are all interlinked to each other. So the deletion of some portion of the chapters with no knowledge of students about how to solve problems might be a trouble to them. “Momentum and Newton's second law of motion” is removed from the CBSE syllabus. If Linear momentum is not understood well by students, they will find it difficult to understand the application of Angular momentum and also while solving problems based on Newton's second law of motion. Many concepts from the laws of motion chapter have been deleted. Concepts like Rotational equilibrium, conservation of angular momentum, etc. need basic knowledge from the Laws of Motion. So here the students might feel some hurdles to solve problems in NEET 2021. This deleted syllabus in Physics will impact the students in the NEET exam.
In chemistry, two important concepts like “Activation energy, Arrhenius equation” have been deleted. These two concepts are important for chapters like Solutions, Equilibrium, Surface Chemistry as well. Now, in case a question is asked from the chapter - Solutions. While the question may ask about Raoult’s law or Henry’s law or can't-Hoff factor, it will start with a chemical reaction equation with the value of activation energy given there. In such a situation, a student may not know the formula for the activation energy and consequently, will lose marks for the whole question.
No matter the reduction, students need to learn the whole syllabus for NEET. Some students might feel less burden on boards for the reduction in the syllabus, but the students who are appearing for the entrance exam might feel some problem in the exam. The interdependency and basic knowledge on some subjects might be a disadvantage of learning without one another.

There will be 3 sections in the question paper. The number of questions will be increased this year to include the choice for a reduced syllabus. The type of questions will be Multiple Choice Questions. A total of will180 questions need to be attended, 90 questions from Biology (Botany + Zoology) and 45 questions each from Physics and Chemistry, in three hours. Four marks will be awarded for every correct answer, and a wrong answer will cost you minus one mark. Un-attempted questions will be given no marks.
