NEET 2019 - post exam student reactions
Most students agreed that a major chunk of the questions asked were NCERT based. The paper was found relatively easy as compared to NEET 2018 with Physics and Biology being found easier compared to Chemistry. The scoring could be higher on account of the easy paper with NEET cutoffs expected to go higher than the previous year.
Some of the pre NEET reactions in 2019 are
Keshab who was writing NEET for the second time had undergone coaching from Allen Kota. His strategy was to aim and answer all question he knew to score a good rank. He felt he would do good in Physics which was his forte while depending on his intense preparation for Biology and Chemistry to pay off.
Shivam who was from Panipat was attempting NEET exam for the first time and was relying on his self study not having releied on any coaching. His strong point being Biology, he looked forward to do well in the exam.
Saaksh from Bahadurgarh, Haryana wished to pusue MBBS from AFMC. Biology being her strong point, she wished that this second NEET attempt of hers would be successful.
The analysis of any exam can be only given after the exam concludes. However, previous year exam analysis always helps understand what the trends may be like. NEET analysis for 2019 is given here to enable students to gain an insight from the experiences of those who have written the exam last year. The expert opinion has also been added as this adds to the weightage of what to expect, how best to prepare. The exam analysis for NEET 2020 will be updated here on May 3 after the conclusion of the exam.
NEET Analysis by Students who appeared in 2019
Mariam Khan from Aligarh, found that most of the questions were from NCERT. Having done her coaching from her home town, she felt that the paper was relatively easy and could have be tackled with strategic preparation. She found no glitches in the NEET exam that day.
Mayank for whom this was the second attempt, found Physics and Chemistry to be easy as compared to Biology. He felt that about 40% of the questions were from the NCERT syllabus and expected to score anywhere between 450-550 marks. His ambition is to pursue medicine from Maulana Azad Medical College.
For Sumita, this attempt was relatively easier compared to the 2018 one with Physics being more easy as compared to the other subjects. Again she felt that questions were predominantly from NCERT and faced no technical glitches in her exam.
Expert Analysis for NEET 2019
Mr. Shailendra Maheshwari (Career Point) found that "Physics questions were equally from Class 11 and 12 syllabus with emphasis on Mechanics and Modern Physics which covered 50% of the questions asked. Current Electricity and Magnetic Effect of Current questions were easy ones. Physical Chemistry dominated the Chemistry section with 19 questions while 14 and 12 questions were from Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, respectively. Biology paper was moderate with 40 questions from Zoology and 50 questions from Botany."
Resonance Experts felt that questions from Biology and Chemistry were moderate while Physics was difficult for most. They opined that 452 questions were easy, 200 were moderate and 60 were difficult. As the paper was relatively easier compared to 2018, the cutoffs could go high they felt.

Yes, NTA NEET 2020 exam has been postponed due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.
As per the new date, NEET UG will be held in the last week of May in offline mode.
The upper age limit to appear for NEET 2020 has been withdrawn. Candidate must have attained the age of 17 years.
Yes, admission to 15 AIIMS institutes located in India will be done based on NEET scores.
A total of 76,928 MBBS and 26,949 BDS seats along with 1207 seats of AIIMS and 2020 seats in the JIPMER will be filled through NEET 2020.
Yes, NTA had re-opened the facility to fill NEET 2020 application form for registered candidates from February 3 to 9, up to 11:50 PM. Candidates can complete step II, II, IV during this process.
Hello dear student,
Yes dear student AIIMS and JIPMER have been called off the shelves and like a these two bodies used to conduct their own entrance test for the students who wanted to get admission in Medical in MBBS or BDS. But they have combined in NEET only which will be conducted by NTA . This is the first time exam is going to be conducted like this but probably the possibility is that the cutoff will be higher in comparison to the past cutoffs of Neet. I hope this information is helpful to you
AS a total 1,67,102 candidates filled the form and about 1,60,888 appeared in the exam.
APPROX 60,000 students filled form for PGNEET 2020 and about 57,759 appeared in the exam.And for more information you can visit here :-
Its a difficult yet not impossible task.
Being a pcm branch student till 12th standard doesn't allow you to sit in the neet examination.
But yes, if you really wants to go for mbbs/bds/any medical field for your higher studies then you can opt biology as a course through private or nios boards.
According to different eligibility criterias of neet, nios or private board students are also eligible for neet exams.
The details of this are as-
NEET examination code 2:
Candidates who have completed a period of 12 years under Higher/Secondary examination or the Indian School Certificate Examination (ISCE), which is equivalent to Class 10+2 can opt code 2. However, the last two years of study must include English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology or Mathematics or any other elective as a major subject as prescribed by the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT).
Aspirants who have passed 10+2 from National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) or state open school, as a private candidate from state boards; with Biology/Biotechnology as an additional subject can apply under NEET qualification code 2.
Who can also apply code 2: It should also be noted that the qualifying examination code for NEET 2020 for droppers will also be the same. For instance, a candidate has passed qualifying examination from CBSE/ISCE or any state board in the year 2018, but wish to appear for NEET 2020, he/she can apply for the exam with Code 2.
For more details and informations you can check out the official sites too .
Hope this will help you out.
When two candidates get the same marks, then the issue is resolved using the tie breaker policy.
In case of NEET UG, the tie breaker policy gives more importance to Biology.
So, if A scores 300 in Bio and B scores 265 but their total score is same, then A is preferred.
Tie breaker policy doesn't include marks of Physics to resolve such issues.
Only Marks of Bio,Chem and then less number of incorrect answers and finally DOB are considered. (in the same order)
Hope this helps.
320 marks in NEET won't help you to get a seat in any government colleges of Kerala even if you are from OBC Category. Going by previous year home state quota cutoff, you should score at least 500+ marks in NEET to get a seat in government medical colleges in Kerala.
All the best!
