Expert opinion on NEET difficulty level due to AIIMS and JIPMER
Apart from the NTA DG, we also have Mr. Pramod Maheshwari (Chairman & Managing Director (CMD), Career Point Group & Chancellor, Career Point University) and Prof. Ravindra Kumar Kondamudi (Executive Dean for NEET And Senior Physics Lecturer, Sri Chaitanya Educational Institutions), who shared their thoughts about change in the NEET difficulty level, as well as, pattern after the merger of AIIMS and JIPMER.
As per Mr Pramod Joshi: "The pattern and syllabus of NEET would not change. Those students who were writing AIIMS and JIPMER earlier were also writing NEET, so the set will not change. NEET is still the same competition that it used to be. Rather the opportunity has been increased, as AIIMS and JIPMER now a part of NEET, and students should be worried to prepare for AIIMS and JIPMER separately There is nothing to worry about as far as NEET pattern is concerned"

On the other hand, Prof. Ravindra Kumar said: “For the past two years, JIPMER and AIIMS were conducted online, which is clearly different. As a teacher, in my opinion, the JIPMER question paper was easy; however the AIIMS pattern is totally different. When I observed the previous year AIIMS paper of Physics was very tough. The question paper framed under the syllabus was crossing the boundaries that were trouble with AIIMS. So, for NEET, the NTA frames the question paper and syllabus. NTA is making good precautions to frame a good number of questions without crossing the boundaries. Since the paper will be set by the NTA, candidates must not worry. Paper will not be going to be tough.”

Is Coaching mandatory to clear NEET?
In the conversation, Joshi has also shared that the objective of NTA is to create the exam on the level of International standards, which means matching the difficulty level of the exam to the population that is appearing for it. Unfortunately, that is not the case for now, the level of the test is much higher than the level of the population and that is why there is a need for students to go and take coaching classes to match up the level. NTA is trying hard to bridge that gap between the level of paper and the population of the candidates.
In order to fill the gap between the paper and students, the authorities are doing psychometric analysis of the students who have cleared the entrance exam last year in order to gradually adjust to that level. So that in future, going to the coaching centres will not be a computation but a voluntary activity for those who want to study with coaching help. Psychometric analysis is a technique that is done in order to make sure that the final test meets the objectives and standards that were intended.. With psychometric analysis, authorities can ensure that the exam and every subsequent version of it continues to meet the high standard quality.
Explaining further, the Director General also stated that the motive behind forming a question paper is not to beat the student. The idea of conducting a test is to select the best candidates who are suited for the particular purpose. The authority is constantly working on improving the questions asked in the question paper. And by improving the quality of the question paper, the students will not have to take coaching from outside, if an aspinats is good at something, he/she will be able to clear the exam.
“Learning also happens outside the classroom”- said Vineet Joshi

The cut off marks changes every year depending on total number of candidates appeared, difficulty of exam, number of seats available etc. In 2019 a candidate with 325 marks belonging to SC category secured seat in Adichunchanagiri Institute of Medical Sciences, Bellur, Mandya.

Iam from general category. What if i score 230 marks in NEET 2020....am i able to get admission in Mahatma gandhi medical college jaipur???? Im from Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan... please reply
The cut off in 2019 for Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Hospital, Jaipur was 470 marks for general category under 85% state quota counselling. Considering previous year cut off marks you may not get seat in this college with 230 marks. You need to score above 470 marks to have decent chances of getting seat in this college as cut off may increase or decrease depending on total number of seats available, total number of candidates applied, previous year cut off etc.
