Atharv Tyagi: The exam was very tough. But I have given my best performance and confident that I will clear the cutoff. I found Chemistry to be the toughest section followed by Physics and Biology. Since Biology was the easiest section, I have attempted maximum questions from this subject.

Nalini: My paper was average in terms of the difficulty level and my performance. However, I am hopeful about clearing the exam. Biology section was very easy. Chemistry was up to the mark but Physics was very tough. I am not supporting the re-introduction of NEET as this curbs the chance for private medical colleges. I had alreadyapplied for other exams which might get scrapped and my preparation would go in vain. But I can’t do anything against the Supreme Court judgment hence focused on preparation.


Prem Sharma: The exam was moderate. Biology was easiest and Physics and Chemistry were on the tougher side. As per my performance, I am hopeful about clearing the test. I am not supportive of the court’s decision on NEET but I did not let that distract my preparation/performance of today.


Tanvi: The paper was very tough for me. I found the Biology and Physics sections to be tough and Chemistry to be of average difficulty level. There were no issues regarding wrong questions. I am not in favour of the announcement of NEET. At least it should have been implemented from next year. This would have eased the tension from the candidates of this year.




Abdul: The exam was tough for me. I could not get much time to prepare. Physics was tricky, Chemistry was also tough. Biology was easiest for me. I am doubtful whether I would be able to crack the exam or not.


Jyoti: The exam was of moderate level of difficulty. For me, Biology was the easiest section and Physics was a bit difficult compared to Chemistry. There was no wrong question or any glitch in the paper. 


Aksa: The exam was difficult. In terms of subject wise difficulty, Biology and Phyysics were tough and Chemistry was moderate. The court should have taken the decision regarding NEET earlier. I have taken AMU Medical entrance exam apart from AIPMT/NEET 2016.


Riya: The exam was on the expected lines. I found Biology to be the easiest section and Chemistry toughest. I am not confident about cracking the paper since I have attempted as many questions as possible but not too sure about the accuracy.

The exam has been conducted in 1,040 examination centres in 52 cities across India and abroad. The exam has been taken by around 6 lakh test takers out of 6,67,657 registrations. Approximately 2,300 MBBS and 300 BDS seats in 200 medical and Dental colleges of India are there.


The Central Board of Examination (CBSE) had replaced AIPMT 2016 with the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) Phase 1 on April 28, 2016 following a Supreme Court order to scrap all state- level medical entrance tests.

Hello there!


I am extremely sorry to tell you but you haven't mentioned the name of the college for which you are interested in knowing marks required in neet to get a seat, let me know it so that I can help you with relevant and detailed informations.

How can I prepare for neet exam in 15 months

Rehan Alam Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

15 months are more than enough for you to get into your dream medical college. The most important thing you need is just be consistent throughout your journey. Prepare everyday and with a proper fixed time table.

You should also familiarize yourself with the syllabus and prepare with the pace which suits your need and do not depend upon your school's pace.

Then go through all the NCERT textbooks and if you can afford, then buy some coaching material or better you should join one coaching as it will help you with the consistency part.

Hope this helps. Thank you.
