More than 1.5 million candidates have registered and about 1.35 million have appeared for the NEET 2019. This is the first time the National Testing Agency (NTA) is responsible for the conduct of the NEET examination.

There were 4 versions of the question paper in every centre for NEET 2019 – P3, Q3, R3 and S3 were the versions in Kerala. The order of subjects in each version was different; likewise the options for each question were shuffled too in different versions; the total marks and the number of questions in ALL versions were the same.

Further analysis of the NEET 2019 paper is given below:

The Physics part can be categorized as moderately difficult. The difficulty level was significantly low compared with previous year NEET Papers. Questions from Class XI especially, more of it from Mechanics, constituted a whooping 61% of total marks in Physics; about 30% to 40% questions were theory and concept based and only rest of the questions were numerical based.

A student with thorough basic subject knowledge and some insight into applying the basic rules in to problems should be able to feel content about his/ her performance. Topic wise analysis and difficulty wise analysis for the Physics part of NEET 2019 are provided below:

Chemistry part of NEET 2019 was considered overall as easy by the students. With the Physical portions of Chemistry eating into Organic portions of Chemistry, the paper was definitely easier than 2018.

Also questions from Physical chemistry were found to be easy to moderate type. All questions are based on NCERT Syllabus and actually few questions were exactly as given in NCERT exercises. Students who had made a thorough preparation based on NCERT question and previous year questions may find this part to be quite easy

Majority of the Inorganic questions were found to be easy with one or two questions may be considered as moderate level. Again thorough preparation based on NCERT text book is sufficient to perform well in this area.

The data given below shows the same:

Biology part of NEET 2019 has been the intriguing part of the three subjects. Having said that, one should also mention that, almost all questions were based on NCERT Texts. Few questions (constituting about 9% of scores) were highly difficult and few more were slightly deviating but linked to the concepts in NCERT.

Equal weightage is given to both +1 and +2 syllabus; but comparatively higher number of questions originates from areas of Human Physiology and Genetics. No representation of chapters - Photosynthesis and Organisms and Population.

Few of the Match the following type questions, carried an extra element on Column II, which created confusion and dilemma among students. Lengthy and conceptually twisted questions were also there and these questions are the deciding factor of student’s scoring and rank position. Only two of the 90 questions were direct numericals.

The difficulty analysis of the paper clearly shows that the Biology part is of moderate difficulty level.

From Zoology, Human Physiology and Genetics & Evolution together represented about one third of the total marks. Below given is the representation of major areas in Biology part of NEET 2019.
