With about 1.33 million students battling for 66,000 seats in the medical and dental colleges in the country, the NEET Exam finally took place on Sunday, the 6th of May, 2018.
While different students had different opinions, most of them said that discluding Physics, the paper was a piece of cake. The students were disheartened because the Physics section was particularly lengthy and tricky.
The experts agreed and added that most of the students would have been confused in handling the Physics questions since a lot of questions based on detailed concepts were thrown in.
With the recent confusion over strict guidelines issued by CBSE for the paper, the Delhi Court finally intervened and the Sikh Students were able to take ‘kada’ and ‘kirpan’ inside the Centre but they had to reach the center an hour earlier.
The questions were mostly NCERT based with easy calculations and Biology was simple. The students were overall satisfied and many were confident of clearing the exam.
