In the exam held Wednesday, the physics section was comparatively difficult. Anurag Tiwari, National Academic Director (Medical), Aakash Educational Services Limited said, “Physics section was not only more difficult than the sections in the exam today but in comparison to phase-I of NEET 2020, it was on a slightly higher difficulty level.”
Most students found chemistry to be easy to moderate while the biology section was found to be easy. In comparison to phase-I, both chemistry and biology were easier this time.
The paper was largely based on the NCERT syllabus. Even the theoretical questions were from the NCERT textbook including many solved examples, said Tiwari.
In the physics section, there were more numerical-based questions. Other questions too required tricky calculations and overall the exam was lengthy, he added.
