Which Entrance Exam is Easy to Crack – NEET or IIT JEE?

Every student appearing in 10th class examination has a question that which stream to choose for further education. Once the stream is decided, the stream is science. The question that comes after this is medical or engineering?

The answer to this question marks the beginning of a dream career. Students can decide which subject they are interested in. A good score in NEET leads to admission in a good medical college, while a good score in IIT JEE helps students get admission in a reputed engineering college.

Difference between IIT JEE and NEET

Both the exams are national level entrance exams and hold a lot of importance with respect to the higher education of the students. 

IIT JEE and NEET are both popular and tough national entrance exams. One of the most important differences between the two tests is the path of achievement. JEE will take you to one of the top universities in India, whereas NEET will take you to a medical school.

Another distinction is that JEE gives greater weight to Math, whilst NEET gives it to Biology.

Easy to Understand JEE vs. NEET

Both JEE Main and NEET are tough exams. Since these exams are conducted once in a year and limited number of seats are available, it becomes more difficult to crack them. Furthermore, medical schools have far fewer places than engineering schools. As a result, even though the questions are easier in NEET as compared to JEE Main, it makes the exam more competitive and adds another level of difficulty to NEET.

Following is the list of papers in order of difficulty:

Least Difficult – JEE Mains

Difficult – NEET

Most Difficult – JEE Advanced


NEET is a common medical entrance exam for medical students. It is difficult to compare both the exams. According to students who have cleared both JEE and NEET, JEE is a bit more difficult on paper than NEET. However, due to the high level of competition in NEET, getting into a good medical college is challenging.
