Since this year, over 13 lakh candidates appeared for the medical entrance exam, we’ll find out what experts are suggesting on the NEET 2018 cut-off. The Physics paper was lengthier than last year with an increase in the application based and calculative questions.

As per Y K Jayaramappa, CEO, BASE academy, in comparison with previous year, this year’s NEET Biology paper was creative and thought-provoking. “There were two questions from zoology that were out of the curriculum. A few problems in physics section required lengthy calculations and the overall difficulty level was comparable to the last years’ paper,” said he. Therefore, the expert believes, the cut off may be between 95-100 for reserved category and for the general category, it is 125-130.
