NEET was a mixed bag: Students

By Saumyangi Yadav


The 2022 National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET-UG) was held on Sunday, July 17 at over 3,500 centers across the country and overseas. The exam was organized by the National Control Agency (NTA).

The candidate who took the exam said that the quiz was of medium difficulty.

Aarush Y, a medical aspirant told the Bangalore Mirror, “The botanical part was a bit long but not very difficult. For me, the hardest part of the questionnaire was Physics, as we expected. All questions came from NCERT syllabus only.



NEET (UG), which selects students for undergraduate medical courses, is said to be India’s biggest entrance exam. More than 18 lakh students had registered for this year’s newspaper. Of the 18.72 lakh applicants, over 10.64 lakh were women and 8.07 lakh were men.

Another student, Mohammed Afnan, said the exam was quite easy compared to expectations. “The paper was easy for the most part. It was a bit long but not very difficult. It was my second attempt and I hope to score at least 600+,” he said.

Although some students said the test was easy to moderate in difficulty and expected to get a good grade, other students did not share a similar sentiment.

Shruthi Singh, another medical aspirant who appeared for the exam on Sunday, said, “The quiz was long and also difficult for me. Physics was the hardest and the Chemistry part also took a lot of time. I don’t think I will be able to score well this year but I hope for the best.”

Students also said the quiz was easier than the NEET-2021 quiz. Over the past month, students and parents have called on the NTA and the union’s education minister to postpone the exam until August or September, saying many parts of the country were flooded and students weren’t had not had enough preparation time for the exam. However, the exam took place on the scheduled date.

Students who appear for both NEET and Common university entrance test (CUET) this year are also tense about their preparation for CUET. “I place my hopes on CUTE because my NEET exam didn’t go well but also CUET less than a month ago and I don’t think I can prepare well for that too,” said Shruthi Singh.

Students will be able to get a better analysis of their exam once the official answer key will be announced soon by NTA.
