“I found NEET-2 easier than the previous exam which was held in May but there were several questions which were repeated from NEET-1. I found the chemistry questions difficult than physics and biology,” said Kritika Singh, a student.
Another aspirant Ashutosh Ranjan felt the paper was more difficult than NEET-1 because the physics and chemistry sections were quite tough.
Akanksha Dixit, who appeared in the exam, said: “I found the physics part quite difficult but overall NEET-2 was easier than NEET-1. I don’t think that there was any error in the question paper.”
People from across Rajasthan took the exam. “I have come all the way from Barmer. I am hopeful that my daughter will do well in the exam,” said Rekharam Jakhar, whose daughter Heena appeared in the exam in Jaipur.
