NEET PG 2022 overall review of NEET PG 2022

Overall, the NEET PG 2022 exam was a straightforward exam – with cherry red macula & Torres bodies & crumpled paper appearances & G6PD deficiencies. A few tricky questions: is the child with tender hepatomegaly & mild jaundice having icteric leptospirosis? There’s nothing to suggest DHF / Chikungunya & it’s definitely not hepatic encephalopathy!

Detailed analysis of NEET PG 2022 exam

As per the experts of Aakash:

  • A lot of OBGYNs! Again, mostly straightforward. IUCD – contradictions; manual sweep for retained placenta; mid-pelvis (IBQ).

  • As expected, several questions on contraception.

  • A couple of questions on ectopic pregnancy.

  • 75 image-based questions – but about 30 of those didn’t really need an image – like the one on hemolytic anemia having splenomegaly as the accompanying clinical finding.

  • Many clinical scenarios – again a lot of them where the clinical scenario wasn’t relevant at all: for example, the 4-line description of cholera case, only to turn around and ask the receptor for the toxin!

  • Quite a lot of questions from molecular biology & biochemistry – straightforward facts.

  • Surgery was simple – exploratory laparotomy for perforation-peritonitis & stab wound; intussception.

  • Tricky question on the inhaled foreign body: flexible bronchoscopy is risky in a hypoxemic patient & foreign body removal is easier with rigid bronchoscopy. Reduced air entry was the answer.

  • Scleromalacia perforans – the one important ocular complication of RA.

  • HLA-DQ2 seen in celiac disease.
