The overall level of the NEET examination was between easy to moderate. Most of the questions were based on NCERT textbooks. There were no surprises in the exam. The pattern was similar to that of last years. No section was particularly difficult. There were almost 7-8 questions directly taken from previous year’s paper and NCERT textbook. The questions were direct. An aspirant who has studied from NCERT, will be able to score well in the exam. The expected general cut off for NEET qualified would vary between 125-135. But for admissions in colleges the cut off may vary 510-520.

On the whole, Physics section was easy, however, some students faced difficulty in Physics numericals. Chemistry section was of moderate difficulty level. Whereas Zoology and Botany were a mix of factual and easy conceptual questions with high weight-age given to Microbes in Human welfare in Botany and cell the unit of life having in Zoology respectively.
