In-Depth NEET Exam Analysis 2018

Embibe performed a unique NEET Analysis of the 2018 offline paper. Having large amounts of student attempt data collected on our platform over many years and using Embibe’s Knowledge Graph gives us insights into the paper on various dimensions – difficulty, time to solve, important concepts and chapters, and likely student mistakes.

In-Depth NEET Paper Analysis: How Difficult Was the Paper?

Questions are rated on a difficulty scale of 1-10 (with 1 being least difficult and 10 being highest difficult) specific to an exam. The box plot below shows the distribution of difficulty levels of questions in 2018 versus those from the previous two years. We can see that in 2018, the average difficulty level was slightly higher than in the previous years.

NEET Analysis 1

The bar chart below shows the average difficulty level for each of the three subjects – Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. We can see that this year, Physics was, on average, the toughest section.

NEET Analysis 2

In-Depth NEET Exam Analysis 2018: How Long Was the Paper?

Questions are also assigned an Ideal Time (the average time it would take top students to answer the question correctly). For 2018’s NEET offline paper, the questions had an average ideal time of 63 seconds. The figure below shows the distribution of ideal times for questions in 2018’s paper versus the previous two years.

We immediately noticed that the NEET 2018 paper was much lengthier than in previous years.

The bar chart below shows the average question ideal time for each of the three subjects – Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. We can see that Physics and Chemistry questions were taking more time.
