When to Fill NEET OMR Sheet – After Solving a Question, Completing a Section or Finishing the Whole Paper?

Filling NEET OMR Sheet

A question that is often asked from past NEET-UG aspirants is – “When did you fill the OMR sheet in the NEET exam? Is it after completing a section, solving the PCB fully, or after solving each and every question?” What is the right method to fill the NEET OMR sheet?

In this post, Aditya Vikram (AIR-187 in NEET 2016) will try to answer this question of upcoming NEET aspirants.

When to Fill OMR Sheet in the NEET Exam?

Should you fill the NEET OMR sheet after solving the entire paper or after each question? No, it’s never after solving the entire paper, nor after solving each question. If you fill the full OMR sheet after solving the complete NEET paper then:

  • It increases the chances of mistakes as you will be filling a bulk of 180 questions at a stretch.
  • You will be always worried while solving the questions that you have to fill the OMR sheet too.

Reasons for not following the second method is that if you fill the NEET OMR sheet after each question:

  • It takes your attention out of the sheet.
  • Plus if you don’t answer consecutive questions and if you have skipped a question in between and if you have the habit of filling the OMR after each answer then it is very likely that you will fill the previous consecutive question that you had skipped in the question paper.

Right Method of Filling the NEET OMR Sheet – After Completing a Section

So my method of filling the NEET OMR sheet was that I used to complete one section, say Physics and fill the OMR of that section and then proceed to the next. This saved me from the worry that I will have to keep time to fill the OMR sheet at the last, plus it was a more efficient way as it helped reduce mistakes.

Try to keep yourself at the safest side possible.
