Number of students that are sitting for NEET 2018 at a single exam centre is more than 500. CBSE has accommodated 13.26 lakh candidates in 2255 centres all over India. Today, the board is conducting national level medical entrance exam NEET 2018, on basis of which, medical and dental colleges in India will offer admission in over 60000 seats.
As is being reported live from the centres, students have started arriving at the exam centres from much before 7:30 AM. Shalini who is appearing for NEET for the first time says “My reporting time is 7:30 AM. I had visited the centre yesterday and it had taken me around 45 minutes. However, I left home at around 6:15 AM thinking that it is better to arrive early than late!”
We will keep reporting on NEET 2018 throughout the day. Just after exam, we will bring to you exam analysis: it will talk about difficulty level, question distribution, weightage of chapters, and expected cutoff. After that AglaSem will publish NEET 2018 answer key. In addition, candidates will get to download solutions in PDF format for physics, chemistry, biology.
NEET 2018 First Reporting Slot Opened At 7:30 AM
Like Shalini, many other students have also come very early to the centres. As the clock ticks by, more and more students arrive. At the main gate of the centre, a clock has been set up as per guidelines of CBSE so that candidates can know exactly what timing is being followed. This clock is set exactly as per clock on NEET 2018 official website cbseneet.nic.in.
Students who were given the time slot of 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM have started queuing up for frisking. Many were concerned over the dress code implementation; as of now, no serious concerns have been raised. Students are being checked thoroughly to avoid any case of malpractices.
Next slot for entry is 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM. Many students of that slot have also already arrived. Some can be seen waiting in cars flicking through notes, few are talking to each other, and a few can be seen nervously pacing around. Tension is palpable in the atmosphere.
Best Of Luck To All For NEET 2018
NEET is an exam for which several students spend years to prepare. Some have dropped a year after class 12th to prepare. After working hard for long hours and burning the midnight oil, a student gets three hours to win the race; as winners say, “Winning has nothing to do with racing. Most days don’t have races anyway. Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up”.
Now paper will start at 10 AM. That will be when students can start solving questions and mark answers on OMR sheet. Three hours later, they can turn in their sheets and come out of the hall with their question papers in hand.
On a parting note, this quote is fitting with the situation, “This is not the end, this is not even the beginning of the end, this is just perhaps the end of the beginning.”
