NEET 2023 Syllabus The NEET 2023 syllabus comprises three subjects, namely Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The syllabus is the same as that of CBSE Class 11 and Class 12. However, a few topics of the syllabus are not taught in these classes. Candidates are advised to go through the syllabus before they start preparing for the entrance test. It is expected that the NEET syllabus 2023 will remain the same as that of last year.
NEET 2023 Exam Pattern The exam pattern of NEET was changed by NTA last year. The total number of questions was increased from 180 to 200. However, the number of questions to be attempted was 180.
