NTA NEET 2020 paper analysis: The students who appeared for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2020) on September 13 found the paper easy. According to Tanmoy Bashak, a NEET aspirant, “It’s 100 per cent NCERT. The questions were quite easy. Even physics which is considered difficult in past years, was the easiest of all. The chemistry and biology portions have two-to-three tricky questions.”

Over 15.97 lakh candidates appeared in the exam that was conducted following strict COVID-19 guidelines. Like JEE, a proportion of students and parents were against the conduct of medical entrance exam considering the health risk, but Tanmoy, among others supported the government’s move. “At the time of solving the paper, I mistakenly removed the masks and chill for a moment, but the invigilator appeared before me within a second and instructed to wear the mask properly.”

There is no difficulty level in the paper, physics was easiest, chemistry and biology had some tricky questions.”
