The Chemistry section was also rated to be easier than last year. “It can be ranked one or two points higher than last year’s exam. It included questions from all chapters in Chemistry. There were six questions statement-based questions and two were assertion reason questions. This was unusual as last year there were only two statement-based questions,” said Saurabh Kumar.
“Most questions are based on NCERT statements, facts, and tables, so much so that statements were directly copied from NCERT without any changes. Additionally, the question paper is dominated by theory-based questions, having only 11 numerical. This year, Assertion Reason type of questions have been introduced in section A, and such questions demand deep clarity of concepts to answer correctly,” said Anurag Tiwari, national academic director, medical at Aakash BYJU’S.
NEET UG 2022 is a single medical entrance exam for admissions to MBBS, BDS, other program in various colleges across the country. The exam is conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA).
Botany paper : Meanwhile, the Botany paper was quite lengthy as many questions were long statement based making it time-consuming. This section was rated moderate to difficult, even though a majority of the questions were from NCERT, claims Tiwari.
Zoology Paper: In the Zoology paper, the questions were majorly statement-based and largely out of the NCERT syllabus. “The objective questions also had the presence of statements this time. The exam was easy to moderate, although a few questions could have tricked the candidates. However, this section was time taking, unlike last year,” Saurabh Kumar explained.
Errors in NEET UG: This year, experts have pointed out that the NTA has made some errors in the NEET UG Exam. In the Botany section, two questions have been raised to be incorrect, belonging to Living World and Anatomy of flowering plants. In Chemistry section, one question may have a typing error, leading to no match for the correct answer. Similarly, one question in the Physics section, based on the photoelectric effect, had controversial language wherein stopping potential values were interchanged.
