The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET)-UG 2019 was held on May 5, 2019 by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The exam was held in a single session in offline mode i.e. it was a pen and paper based exam.
NEET is national-level Medical Entrance Examination for aspirants who wish to pursue MBBS/BDS courses in various government or private medical colleges affiliated by the Medical Council of India. The exam was conducted from 2 pm to 5 pm across various examination centres across India barring Odisha wherein NEET has been postponed owing to the destruction caused by Cyclone Fani.
Our Subject Experts say that Overall NEET 2019 Paper was of moderate difficulty level. Physics was the most difficult of the three subjects while Biology was the easiest but lengthy. The same sentiment is reflected in students as well.
Pramod from Thane said that in Biology, there were a lot of conceptualized questions. While in Physics & Chemistry, there were comparatively more direct questions.
Another student Tejal said that she found Physics little bit tougher compared to other 2 subjects. "I am hopeful of getting 500 out of 720 marks", she added.
"Most of the questions were based on NCERT textbooks. There were almost 7-8 questions directly taken from previous year's question paper and NCERT textbook. An aspirant who has studied from NCERT, will be able to score well in the exam," said Kaushik Sivaraman, CEO of Edumate Plus.
He added that as per the past experiences, Chemistry paper seems to be believed as easy but in most cases students marked wrong answers.
