The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET) exam 2017 today, i.e. May 7 in offline mode in 10 languages at 1972 exam centres in 103 cities.

The pattern of the NEET-2017 was same as that of last year. Physics took time, chemistry was tough and biology based largely on NCERT textbooks.
According to some students, the exam was easy but Physics part was a bit difficult. 

Expected cut-off:

"The cut-off for general category would be between 380 and 410," says the expert Rajshekhar Ratrey, VP Educational Content.

The exam consisted of 180 objective type questions (four options with single correct answer) from Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany and Zoology). The duration of the exam would be of three hours.

A total of 11, 38,890 candidates appeared for the exam.

Quotas for admission:

Accordingly, admissions will be made in all India quota seats, state government quota seats, state/management/NRI quota seats in private medical/dental colleges or any private/deemed university and central pool quota seats

About the exam:

The exam was conducted for admissions to MBBS/BDS courses in medical/dental colleges run with an approval of Medical Council of India/Dental Council of India under the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

Highlights of NEET 2017:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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

4. CBSE continued with its tradition of 7% ambiguous questions.

5. 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.
