What are NEET Cut Off Marks?

Let us discuss the meaning of Cut-off marks before moving further.

Cut-off marks are the minimum number of marks required by a candidate to pass/ qualify any exam. Candidates secure above the cut-off marks means he/she has qualified the exam and vice-versa. It is tough to get a seat in a medical college if a candidate score marks below the cut-off.

Cut-off marks depend on various factors like-

  • The number of candidates who appeared in the entrance exam.
  • The level of difficulty of questions asked in the exam.
  • Availability of seats in medical colleges.
  • Marking scheme
  • Previous year cut-off marks

On the basis of the aforementioned factors, the NEET cut-off marks list was prepared by NTA (National Testing Agency). And on the basis of this cut-off list, candidates will be called for counselling and granted admission to shortlisted medical colleges. Every medical college has fixed specific cut-off marks on the basis of which candidates are granted admission.
