Chemistry was of moderate level of dificulty with questions from the known areas.

Except for few questions of Physics section, Candidates were satisfied with the examination. PrepLadder has brought the reviews of the candidates taken after the examination.

Student Reactions (NEET Phase 1)

Pratiyusha, Delhi: The exam was a lot easier than I expected. Biology was the easiest of all sections and maximum number of questions were directly asked from NCERT. Chemistry was easy too except for few questions, however I was able to answer most of the questions in this section. Physics has always been my nightmare and physics in the exam too was not less than horrifying nightmare due to the lengthy, tricky and calculative numericals which consumed a lot of time. I hope that I did good in the exam overall. Talking about the NEET, I was very scared as State exams will be quashed and this was the only chance, I believe that State level exams should have been conducted, but however NEET wasn’t that bad.

Yadwinder, Chandigarh: The exam was a little tough for me especiallt Physics and somewhat Chemistry too. But I did my best and I am certain that I will make it to the merit list.

Nandita Rana, Kurukshetra: Biology Section was superb and I did amazingly well in this section. Chemistry was okay. But Physics was not that cool. How I performed in Physics, bothers me a bit. But, I am hopeful that I will clear the exam.

I had applied for many other exams which might get scrapped and my chances of getting a seat in a good Institute through state level exam would go in vain. But I can’t do anything as it is the verdict of Supreme Court.

Prem Arora, Mumbai: The exam was difficult for me as my major focus was on preparing for State level exams which were to be conducted few weeks later but now with Supreme Courts order my chances have nearly been eliminated to get a seat in reputed Medical college.

Tanvir Duggal, Ghaziabad: Physics was tough but other sections were moderate for me. I was able to do only few selected questions of Physics while I managed to attempt strong number of questions in Chemistry and especially in Biology section. I was distracted and my studies suffered with the changes made in the examination. But now nothing could be done. I could have done better without this unnecessary stress.

Aqqib Mushtaq, Lucknow: The exam was toughbut I managed to attempt a good share of questions which will help me clear the exam. The decision about replacing the exam created a lot of mental pressure. This decision should have come either a 2 or 3 months before the exam of later after the exam.

Pratibha, Bangalore: Exam was good. I was amazed and happy to see the Biology section questions. I did amazingly well in Biology and Also in Chemistry but Physics somehow got me and I struggled getting some answers correct.  

Akshay, Delhi: The exam was difficult especially because of the mental pressure created because of SC’s judgement. I was confused with this news and my head was messed up because of this. However I took the exam and I think I did better than I expected.

Riya, Dharamshala: The exam surprised me, especially the Biology section. It was very easy and I answered many questions in this section. I was prepared for physics no matter how hard it was but I did good in this section too. But, my chemistry is not that strong especially organic chemistry. So in this section I did average. Overall I am hapy with my performance.

Sahil, Shillong: Exam was difficult especially Physics, I fear numericals, I just hate them. So except physics, I did good in rest of the exam. Whereas talking about Replacement of AIPMT by NEET, now nothing could be done exam is done so better forget it.

The exam was conducted in 1,040 examination centres across India and abroad. Around 6 lakh students took the test out of 6,67,657 registrations. 

On the verdict of Supreme court, the Central Board of Examination had replaced AIPMT 2016 with the NEET Phase 1. Other State level exams can be scrapped and only NEET will be gateway examination for admission to MBBS and BDS exam.
