Questions worth 224 Marks can be considered easy overall, 308 marks of moderate level and only 188 marks are considered difficult by Venper Team.

    Overall the paper was found to be quite easier than NEET 2019. Compared to last year all subjects were found to be on easier side. Questions in Physics were not as calculative as last year and were conceptually simple. Biology section had maximum questions from NCERT but around 10 questions were bit tricky.
