What is the expected NEET UG 2022 cutoff - Learn Careers360 Analysis

The question paper of NEET 2022 was an overall average paper, if we talk subjects wise then physics and chemistry were easy-moderate. Most of the questions in physics were formula based and mostly based on one concept whereas in chemistry most of the questions were NCERT based. Biology was moderate to difficult range considering the fact that it was more time consuming and yet times too confusing and more than 1 option seems to be correct. Along with these, a lot of statement-based questions were there which made the biology session relatively difficult.
