National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test – NEET


NEET 2022 was conducted on July 17, from 2 pm to 5.20 pm. According to the NEET 2022 analysis and student reactions, the exam was of moderate to tough difficulty level. Experts from coaching institutes are preparing the NEET 2022 answer keys and solutions which will be released for each question paper set and code in due course of time. NTA is expected to release the provisional answer keys of NEET 2022 in the first week of August. The final answer keys will be released along with the NEET 2022 result tentatively in the first week of September.

NEET 2022 was of moderate to tough difficulty level. Physics was the toughest and lengthiest section followed by Chemistry. Biology section had the highest weightage but was of easy difficulty level. According to candidates, more weightage was given on the Class 12 syllabus of NEET. Overall, the exam was on the expected lines. A Majority of the candidates found the extra 20 minutes helpful. They also expressed their relief upon the conclusion of the exam.

As per the data released by the Ministry of Education, Jaipur saw the largest number of test-takers, which was 52,351. On the other hand, the lowest number of candidates appeared in West Sikkim, which was 105. Dubai had the highest number of NEET candidates from the category of ‘Candidates Outside India’. The number stood at 646. On the other hand, Bangkok, Thailand saw the lowest turnout in the international cities where NEET 2022 was conducted, with six candidates appearing for the test. Around 95 per cent of the total registered candidates have appeared for the exam.
