NEET UG 2013 Paper Analysis
The overall NEET 2013 exam paper quality can be rated as good. The questions asked in NEET-2013 are above average standard. If we talk about Physics, the level of questions is relatively higher than the previous year AIPMT exam. Although the exam is based on NCERT, however some questions are out of scope of NCERT syllabus. Question are asked from almost all chapters equally except the chapters like Oscillations. Additionally, one question is out of the topics specified in NEET-2013 syllabus (i.e. rolling of body without slipping). Standard of the paper is above the NCERT standards.
With respect to the Chemistry paper, it was a typical medical entrance exam test paper. Equal weightage was given to all the three sections i.e., Physical, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. There were less number of questions involving lengthy calculations rather more questions were of deep understanding level. A student having a very sound knowledge of basic concepts would score good marks. Although questions similar to questions given in standard NCERT book were asked but some of the good quality questions asked in the paper were from outside sources also. Students equipped with focused guidance for NEET would be able to crack this examination comfortably.
As far as Biology portion is concerned, the questions were of good competitive level. The questions and diagrams used in the paper are broadly from the NCERT. However, in some questions the statements given have some discrepancies. Some statements though, have been rectified in the new edition of NCERT, but the question framed seemed to be from the old edition with incorrect information. This has created confusion among the students. Some of the examples mentioned have not been mentioned in current edition of NCERT. For such questions, the student should be given the due benefit. Otherwise, the question paper has been largely appreciated among the students.
