Filling an OMR answer sheet for NEET 2023 can be a challenging task. It is important to
avoid common mistakes such as leaving answer bubbles blank or filling the wrong
answer bubble. It is also important to double-check the accuracy of the answers before
submitting the OMR answer sheet.
Before filling the answer sheet, it is important to remember that the OMR sheets are
evaluated by computer software which is sensitive to scratches and overwriting. This
means that only properly filled black bubbles will be read and any other marks may
cause the OMR sheet to be rejected.
When filling the OMR sheet, the first step is to fill in the boxes with the necessary
information such as the 10-digit roll number, the test booklet number and the booklet
code. Make sure that no other information is written on the sheet.
The next step is to fill the fields such as the candidate’s name, father’s name and
mother’s name in the box provided, in running handwriting.
The exam paper is for 200 minutes and contains 200 MCQs, of which 180 are to be
answered. Each section has 50 questions, divided into two sections – Section A and B
For Section A, 35 questions in each subject must be answered, from question numbers
001 to 035, 051 to 085, 101 to 135 and 151 to 185. In Section B, any 10 questions out
of 15 can be attempted in each subject from question numbers 036 to 050, 086 to 100,
136 to 150 and 186 to 200.
When filling the OMR sheet, make sure that only one option is marked for each
question. Additionally, don’t forget to sign and time the declaration column with running handwriting.
Finally, make sure that the booklet code that is printed on the OMR sheet matches the
one provided on the test booklet. If there is a discrepancy, inform the invigilator and get
both the answer sheet and the test booklet replaced.
It is important to note that in the event of any discrepancy for a specific language, the
English version will be considered as the final version.
