NEET 2021 Syllabus Reduction: For Direct MBBS Admission.
As the syllabus of Class 11 and Class 12 board exams for mbbs admission had been reduced, a reduction in NEET 2021 syllabus is unavoidable. Let’s see which chapters are going to be reduced and changed.
NEET 2021 syllabus for MBBS Admission 2021
NEET 2021 syllabus for MBBS Admission is mainly dependent on the reduction in topics of Class 11 and Class 12.
Looking into the COVID-19 situation in India, As all the schools are conducting classes and test online, However, online education is not totally same as classroom studies.
With difficulties faced by the school teachers in completing the syllabus online and conducting tests for the students, So authorities were requested to reduce the syllabus for these classes.
On July 7, 2020 the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced a reduction in the syllabus for Class 11 and Class 12 by 30-40 percentage.
It has been announced on January 18, 2021 that the NEET 2021 for mbbs admission will be conducted on the bases of syllabus reduced by CBSE,
But on January 19, 2021 the Education Minister clarified by saying syllabus was cut by 30 percent due to COVID-19, therefore in the upcoming NEET 2021 exam for mbbs admission, the candidates will have more options to answer the questions.
With this candidates preparing for NEET UG 2021 for admission in MBBS and BDS are eager to know whether the syllabus for this entrance test will be reduced OR not.
NEET syllabus 2021 is also expected to be revised, So In this article we have prepared a list of the topics which have been excluded from the syllabus of the Board examinations.
