NEET Student Reactions 2018 – Post exam
Soumyajyoti: The exam was of moderate to tough difficulty level. I found Physics to be the most difficult and lengthy section. Chemistry was of moderate level but Biology was the easiest.
Varun: NEET 2018 was very tough. Numerical in Physics, especially thermodynamics was tough. Biology had more of Human Physiology questions which were easy.
Apeksha: The paper was really tough. The Physics section was so lengthy and time-consuming that I spent maximum time on that section. Unfortunately, I could not spend much time on Biology due to this and the questions were easy. I am regretting my time allocation strategy now. Chemistry was of moderate level of difficulty.
Kashish: The exam was really difficult for me and three hours was not enough for such a lengthy paper. However, I had gone through all questions before and attempted maximum questions from Biology. Hence I am keeping my fingers crossed. However, there were a lot of disturbances in the exam centre due to noises.
Shivakshi: Physics was really lengthy and hence I left out several questions unattempted, which were calculation intensive. Few Chemistry were easy. I focused on Biology as that was the only section I was comfortable in. Around 75 questions in Biology were not from NCERT.
Vikas: I had taken coaching from Aakash Institute since 10th standard and after my exam, I must say that I had taken the right decision. I already had a plan in place and I could execute it properly. I am happy with my performance and optimistic about a good score.
Annu: For me, the paper was moderate. Since Physics is my strong point, I did not find it to be too tough. I tried to attempt as many questions from Physics as possible. The topics included Kinetic, Thermodynamics, Inorganic Chemistry, Human Physiology topics were covered.
