Highlights of NEET 2017:
• Most of the questions were based on concepts given in NCERT. One can conclude that 60-70% of the complete paper was a clear reflection of NCERT.
• Overall, questions involved different level of skills – some being knowledge-based and others being of the analytical type. Questions in physics required knowledge of different concepts and thus were time consuming. However, there weren’t too many questions based upon diagrams this time.
• One has to agree, a change in trend was witnessed this year as the bar of difficulty level was definitely higher since questions required exceptional calculation skills. While in biology, a major fraction of questions were from Class 11, but in physics and chemistry, questions from both class 11 and 12 syllabus were asked.
• CBSE continued with its tradition of 7% ambiguous questions.
• Many options that in questions, particularly in biology, were beyond the NCERT textbook information. This comes as a warning to future NEET aspirants, who might need to include some extra reading to prepare for the exam next year. This year, clearly, more emphasis was laid on application-based questions in all the three subjects.
