cbse-305_050116094427Nagpur: The All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Test (AIPMT) popularly known as NEET Phase 1, a common medical entrance exam was held today i.e. May 1.

The exam was comprised of 180 objective type questions based on physics, chemistry and biology (Botany & Zoology) and was held for a duration of three hours i.e. 10 am to 1 pm.

Here we present you the analysis of the AIPMT 2016:

Physics was above average. It was calculative. Few questions were asked from NCERT and as much as 40 percent of the questions were tough; similarly, 40 percent were medium while only 20 percent of the questions were easy. Some of the questions were repeated from the previous years’ papers.

In Chemistry, the difficulty level of the questions was on the higher side compared to last year’s exam. Approximately 1/3rd of the questions were from class 11, while the rest were from class 12. Many of the questions were not from the NCERT textbook. Two questions had “two options” that were correct while in another question none of the correct option was mentioned.

The Biology portion had more of less questions of average level. The questions from Class 11 and Class 12 were almost of same number. Some of the questions were not covered from the NCERT textbook. One of the questions had wrong options as none of the options justified micronutrients (asked in the question). Maximum weightage of the questions were from Cytology, Physiology, Genetics and Ecology. The paper was relatively on the easier side as compared to the last year’s exam.
