There are questions in 10 different languages as opted by the candidate in the NEET Application Form. Candidates cannot change or opt for any other medium during the exam. Physics section in the NEET Exam is considered to be the most time consuming and difficult section in the NEET exam. However, last year Chemistry took over this position and was the most difficult section.

As per the analysis of the previous year, the maximum weightage of difficult questions were asked from Chemistry followed by Zoology. Physics had moderate difficulty level in the exam. Botany was the easiest section in the NEET Exam. Read the article to get complete analysis of NEET.

Difficulty Level in NEET 

Previous Year NEET exam was moderate level written exam with maximum scoring questions. Candidates can have a look at the sectional difficulty level. However, the paper was slightly difficult than the last years’. Hence, Cutoff for NEET was set higher than the previous year cut off.

SubjectDifficulty level 2016Difficulty level 2015

A total of 720 Marks on scale of easy, moderate and difficult was divided as follows

  • Questions worth 220 Marks were Easy
  • Questions worth 324 Marks were moderate
  • Remaining 176 Marks were from the difficult section.

Marks-wise difficulty level

The maximum questions in NEET 2017 exam were of moderate difficulty. The easiest section in the exam was Botany while the hardest was Chemistry with the highest marks of difficult questions. Zoology was again one of the toughest sections. Given below is the graph with distribution of marks for every section as per the difficulty level:

Questions wise difficulty level

The maximum number of difficult questions were from the Chemistry section in the previous year NEET Exam. The maximum niumber of difficult questions were asked from the chemistry section in the exam followed by Zoology. Though, Physics had the maximum number moderate level questions followed by Botany. Thus they were moderately difficult. Check the graph to know the number of questions in each section and their difficulty level:

Students opinion

A total of 4.7 lakh students registered them for the test at designated centers across the country. They also analyzed paper from the point of view of a student.

Opinion of students regarding NEET 2016 is mentioned below:

  • Physics was comparatively easier from last year. It offered a kind of relief to the students.
  • The question paper, this year, followed NCERT syllabus. Last year it was different. If anyone would have prepared from NCERT, the test was not a tough nut to crack at all.
  • Organic chemistry was a bit tricky. This subject is usually easy but it was tough this time.
