NEET Botany questions were tricky - Botany paper was not at all lengthy and easy to moderate in terms of difficulty. Only a few questions were tricky and seemed difficult to moderate level but most of the questions were asked based on the NCERT syllabus. While, most of the questions were straightforward from the NCERT textbooks. Many questions were factual in nature with a few concept-based questions as well.

NEET-UG Zoology questions were twisted - Zoology was moderate in terms of difficulty and questions were asked based on the NCERT syllabus. Many questions seemed easy at the first glance, but they are twisted and require precision and focus on the keywords.
