Instead of appearing in all subjects  for improvement, he/she can reappear for any number of subjects he/she wishes for improvement.  The percentage marks in this situation will be calculated by considering the marks obtained in 2017 or 2018, whichever is higher, in the respective subjects, in his/her two attempts in 2017 and 2018.

Well both the papers had 54 questions and maximum marks of 183. The partial marking was there this year also in multiple options correct answer type questions.

PHYSICS: Overall physics was the of medium difficulty level out of the three subjects. Paper-2 was more challenging. The new matching questions this year were easy.

CHEMISTRY: This year this should prove to be the most difficult section. Paper tested the application of concepts and scoring high in chemistry wont be easy

MATHEMATICS: It was easiest of all. Paper 1 was easier and paper 2 also was not much challenging. This should be the most scoring section this year.

Its clear that cutoff want be as low  as was in the last two years

Still need to wait for more reactions to be able to come up with an accurate prediction for this year.

Physics Analysis
Paper was overall a balanced paper with almost equal number of questions from class XI (22/45)and XII (23/45)Syllabus.The paper had questions involving rigorous calculations. 
The above chart shows the break up of marks in terms of easy, medium and difficult.
In Code A , two questions Q.No. 8 and 26 had errors and none of the given options are correct.
In Q.No. 18 two options were same and both were correct.
In Q.No. 3 the ratio asked should have been the inverse of what was actually asked.
Chemistry was less calculative and more conceptual. Some questions specially in organic were way beyond the NCERT syllabus students study. Here 29/45 were from XII and 16/45 were from XI class syllabus. In terms of easy, medium and difficult the breakup is as shown below

This was perhaps the easiest one and we expect students to score very well here. Paper was NCERT based though some questions were out of NCERT . Here 39/90 were from XII and 51/90 were from XI class syllabus.

NEET 2017: Last 14 Days Preparation Strategy

NEET 2017 is scheduled on 7 May. Students who aspire to become doctors are already into the last phase of their preparation.The last stage of preparation is the crucial juncture and it can make or break your performance in the exam.  Below are the few suggested guidelines from my side for your help:

1. Previous year papers: Well instead of trying the available mock tests of famous institutes or books it is wise to practice the previous year papers of actual AIPMT/NEET. Just try to attempt last five years paper in real test environment. Even you needn't attempt all papers if you have time crunch.This will help you in getting a feel of the examination, what to expect, how much to attempt, how not to waste time.

2. Identifying Your Scoring Areas(Crack the Biology Part): After practicing these papers you should have an idea about which topics you can and should focus to score marks.
Frankly speaking you don't have much time now to build up confidence over a topic which you have hardly studied till now so smartness suggests that instead of working on your weaknesses it is more wiser to work on strengths. Remember there's no sectional cutoff .Most of the students try to focus too much on Physics since they find it the most tough. If you are not scoring more than 100 in mock tests in physics, its better to give more time to biology and chemistry. Scoring 300 in biology is far easier than scoring 120 in Physics for such students

3. Work on Speed and Accuracy: NEET requires you to answer 180 questions in 180 minutes. So unlike JEE speed here is far more important. Plus you get penalized for incorrect answers so speed with accuracy is utmost needed to crack this exam. So in these last days always keep a watch on the clock while practicing questions. Don't get stuck on a question, if you don't know or can't sove it in a minute, leave that and move on. There is no negative marking for leaving a question.

4. Positive Attitude and Self Belief: Irrespective of how much you have studied and prepared till now, you have to maintain a positive attitude because worrying too much about what you haven't done won't improve your performance. 
Mostly XII appearing students because of Board examinations feel themselves not connected with objective pattern and many negative thoughts starts creeping in. Avoid all such negative thoughts and just believe in yourself. Remember these magical words "I CAN AND I WILL".
