CENTRAL Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) in an eat manneron Sunday. Over 30,000 candidates appeared for the examination conducted at 54 centres in city. Nagpur was divided into A and B parts as per the number of centres. The students were given different time slots forthe entry to the exam centres. One time slot was of between 7.30 am and 8.30 am, and the other was of 8.30 am and 9.30 am.

Though CBSE declared every thing much priorto the examination, some parents and students failed to follow the same, due to which they faced inconvenience. Dr Sanjay Deshpande, noted Sexologist and a parent, said, “Today, I went to drop my daughter for NEET. There was a huge rush of students and parents at the centre. Many students came alone and some of them forgot to bring many important things like admit cards,proforma and photos.Some of them were un aware about the dress code also.

Fortunately, other parents helped these boys andgirls. Even the authorities also tried to help them in every possible manner.” Dr Sameer R Phale,aprofessional teacher who has been teaching Biology since 1995, said,“Biology paper was overall easy except two questions those were beyond the scope and limitations of NEET syllabus as recommended by Medical Council of India (MCI). We are now demanding full credit to these two questions for the benefit of the students.” Dr Phale has been training CBSE, ICSE and State Board students for various pre-medical tests(PMTs) including AIIMS and NEET-UG besides KVPY, IISc, IISER, NISERNEST, etc.

According to Rakesh Parashar, Head, Medical Division, PACE IIT and MEDICAL, Nagpur, the papers of Physics and Chemistry were lengthy and calculative, specially Physics paper. He said, “Biology was largely based on NCERT book.

The students who studied NCERT Biology, the paper was high scoring.Never the less, there were few questions of Zoology section which were not from NCERT book. Students who were able to manage the time distribution properly will certainly be able to score good marks in this exam. He was delighted about the performance of his students in NEET 2017 and expects a good result by them
