  • The paper contained a balanced mix of questions from Class 11 and 12. 
  • In Physics, the theoretical questions were easy, but some tricky numericals were asked. Within Biology, some students found Zoology to be easier than Botany. 
  • In Physics, most questions were asked from Mechanics and Electrostatics, While candidates found Chemistry to be more dominated by reactions. Biology contained a good spread of all the topics from Zoology and Botany. 
  • Most candidates expressed their satisfaction with this year's paper. This might, in turn, indicate that NEET 2018 cutoff could go a little higher compared to preceding years. Last year, NEET cutoff for general category was 131 marks (out of 720).

NEET 2018 Analysis by Coaching Institute Experts

Besides the feedback of NEET takers, the analysis of NEET 2018 was also provided by some prominent coaching institutes as given below. The detailed in-depth NEET analysis by coaching centres indicated overall difficulty level of the paper, subject and topic wise question distribution in NEET 2018 and much more.

Besises the detailed analysis of NEET 2018 by other coaching institutes, Mr. Anand Nagarajan from TIME, Chennai, said while sharing his insights about NEET 2018 analysis, "Overall level of difficulty in Physics was a bit higher than last year. Other subjects were on expected lines. I would put the ratio of questions asked from Class 11 and 12 to be 45% and 55% respectively. Questions from Electrostatics, Mechanics and Electronics dominated Physics, while in Chemistry more questions were asked from Physical followed by Inorganic and Organic Chemistry. In Biology, there was an even spread. Nothing outside of NCERT was asked. I think the qualifying cutoff score of NEET 2018 would hover around 150. Any score in excess of 525 should get the students admission in top colleges through the state quota channel."
