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.

Shehzeen Alam: I have appeared for my Class XII board exam from CBSE board. It is my first attempt and I have prepared on my own, without enrolling in any coaching. Biology and Chemistry are my strong areas. I am little weak in Physics but hopefully, I will be able to attempt sufficient number of questions accurately.
Debashish Biswas: This is my first attempt of NEET and it is the only medical entrance test I am appearing for. Although I have not taken coaching, I have faith in my preparation. I am from Agra and done schooling from CBSE board.

Shweta Prajapati: I am from Uttar Pradesh board and took coaching from Stay Ahead. Biology is my strong area, hence am planning to attempt maximum questions from this section, followed by Chemistry and Physics respectively.

Rohit Kumar: I belong to Rewari, Haryana and completed schooling last year from CBSE board. This is my second attempt. Last year I attempted based on self-preparation, but it was not enough I believe. This year I joined Aakash Institute. Biology is my forte and I have devised my strategy accordingly.

Vipul Kumar: I am from Delhi, CBSE board and did my 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. Apart from NEET, I am also appearing for B.Tech entrance test of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi. I have done self-study from NCERT and Arihant books and appeared for mock tests.
