90% of NEET 2020 Questions were from Darwin App - Best NEET Preparation App

NEET 2020 result has been announced by the NTA on October 16. More than 14 LAKH aspirants appeared in this one of the toughest entrance exams at the UG level. Many institutes have been claiming that most of the questions were from their modules or question bank. 

We too decided to dig deeper for the sake of tons of ‘thank you’ emails in which our users mentioned how Darwin’s question bank proved a game-changer for their NEET 2020 prep; how they managed to solve so many questions within seconds as they were an exact repeat from Darwin. What we found was kind of expected, but we were still surprised by the results.

There are few more insights that we found worth sharing.

Repeats from Previous Year Papers

Darwin has always paid emphasis on the importance of previous year questions as they are the examiner’s favorite. In almost every NEET, 75% of questions are similar to the previous year’s questions and if you have read and practiced that question once, you can easily answer them on the basis of the concept. This year’s NEET too observed a similar pattern. As per the analytics, at least 15-18 questions from each section (Botany, Zoology, Physics & Chemistry) were similar to previous year papers. At Darwin, we have more than 30 years of previous year questions. And, this is not limited to NEET, we have covered questions from AIIMS, old AIPMT and even regional medical entrance tests like MH-CET to leave no stone unturned.

Don’t Ignore the Explanations

Practicing old questions from these tests should be your priority but apart from this don’t forget to read the explanations where the concepts are not clear, even if you get that MCQ right while practicing. Don’t try to mug-up the solution and answers. Conceptualize them with explanations given on Darwin and train your brain to find patterns. This way, you will get an advantage over the competition. 

More and more students are participating in NEET each year and the competition is certainly going to get tougher in the upcoming years. It is therefore important for you to take each step meticulously in the journey of NEET preparation. Hard work alone won’t work, channelize your energy in the source which will give you maximum output with minimal effort.

All the best!
