Dr Sethumadhavan

  NEET 2017 held on 7th May 2017 was comparatively easy for the students. Subject wise analysis reveals that Physics was bit tough when compared to Chemistry or Biology. Most of the questions were direct in nature. Students find Physics as difficult because of time constraint. Says students who were attempting the exam for the first time. Compared to 2016 Kerala had Thrissur and Kannur as examination centres other than Trivandrum, Kochi and Kozhikode. 11 lakh students across 104 cities through 2200 institutions have written NEET- National eligibility Cum Entrance Test conducted by CBSE. Exam key will be published by CBSE on 8th May 2017. Compared to last year’s question paper, the question paper was comparatively easy and the repeaters expressed happiness after writing the examination. NEET envisages admission to 59000 MBBS and BDS seats across the country. Admission to allied health and Agriculture degree courses in Kerala will be through NEET. The courses include Ayurveda, Homeo, Sidha, Unani, Agriculture, Forestry, Veterinary Science and Fisheries.
3 hour NEET entrance test consisted of one paper containing 180 objective type questions (four options with single correct answer) from Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany and Zoology) to be answered on the specially designed machine-gradable sheet using Ball Point Pen provided by CBSE at examination centre. CBSE will release the NEET 2017 Answer Key of the questions soon and it will be giving opportunity to the candidates to challenge in case of any ambiguity in the answer on the website

But board has not specifically advertised any date for the release of the answer key, for exact date of display of answer key, candidates may remain in touch with website.
Once the Answer Keys are published, candidates will be given an opportunity to make online challenge against the Answer Key on payment of Rs.1000 per answer challenged. NEET results will be announced on 8th June 2017. Compared to previous years this year admission for the above said courses will be through Centralised allocation process. For example in Kerala it will be through Commissioner for Entrance examinations and in Karnataka it will be through Karnataka Entrance Authority and so on. Since the difficulty index will be comparatively less compared to previous years, there is a possibility that cut of marks for NEET will be put 20 percent higher compared to 2016. Counselling for all the seats except NRI seats will be through Centralised Counselling at the State level.15 percent of the seats will be available under All India quota.
