FAQ's on NEET - How it affects medical aspirants
Q. 1. How does a common entrance test benefit me?
Ans. Today, the total medical exams in the country are about 50 and every serious aspirant takes an average 10 tests. Besides, it is commonly believed that some private entrance tests, including state entrance tests can be rigged. At the least, they are not full proof. Remember how a CM’s daughter in Bihar stood 1st rank in an MBBS entrance test? So a single and credible entrance test is being conducted to prepare an all India merit list of all medical aspirants. Such a test will benefit the more meritorious to apply into good private medical colleges also, while competing for their own state quotas.

Q. 2. I have appeared for NEET 1. Can I appear for NEET 2?
Ans. Yes. You can. However, you have to give up all your claims on the results of NEET 1/AIPMT 2016 which was conducted on May 1. It is not the best the two. Only, your NEET 2 score would be considered for all admission purposes.
Q. 3. What was the need for NEET 2?
Ans. As the state and private medical entrance tests have been barred, NEET 2 will be an opportunity for those aspirants who did not take the AIPMT 2016 or NEET 1. However, students who appeared in NEET 1 protested that the others are getting more time to prepare. Hence the NEET 1 examinees have also been given an option to appear for NEET 2 by foregoing all claims in NEET 1 results.
Q.4. I have reservations in my state. Would I have the same if considered under NEET?
Ans. Yes. NEET is only a comprehensive merit list to be used as an inter-se merit list. No reservation policies are being changed. It is only the preparation if an all India merit list to be used inter se.
Q. 5. The Exam is in English only. What is the reason?
Ans. Medicine, the world over is taught in English. Most scientific terms don’t have language inferences. Once you pass the exam, you will have to learn the subjects in English. Hence, the exam is being held only in English.
Q. 6. What happens to a candidate who had a bad day on the day of the exam? Earlier, he could make amends in another exam?
Ans. That is true. Every such move has pros and cons. This is a good first step. When you consider states like Tamil Nadu which admits students on marks scored in class XII exams, a bad day in any of the subjects can ruin their chances. This drawback will be for any exam.
Q. 7. I am from Andhra Pradesh. How would my rank at NEET affect my chances?
Ans. Andhra as a state will derive its own merit list of candidates from the NEET merit list and give admissions. Besides, the better performers will also have a chance to get admission into some of the good deemed universities and moving there, thus freeing a few more seats for the Andhra candidates within the state.
However, we at Careers360 acknowledge that if you are an Andhra state board candidate you may be at a disadvantage vis a vis a CBSE board candidate from the same state. This applies to possibly all state board applicants. You can put pressure on your own states to reserve seats according to the board you have taken.
Q. 8. I am from the Christian community and apply for CMC Vellore under our own quota. Would I be affected?
Ans. As I said earlier, no rights under any quota/reservation are being affected. CMC Vellore will draw up its own merit list belonging to the Christian community from the all India merit list and will apply quotas on the same.
Q. 9. What happens to some of the private tests that I already appeared?
Ans. They become null and void. You will have to appear in NEET 2 to lay any claim for admission.
Q. 10. Does it apply to PG Medical seats also?
Ans. No. This is only for undergraduate medical aspirants for this year. But in subsequent years it applies to both PG and UG courses.
Q. 11. What happens if I get a good rank under NEET 2 but denied a seat in a college, though a low ranked student has got admission in my category?
Ans. You can take that college to court and get that seat allocated to you provided the other admission criterion remain the same.
Q.12. My advice to all students regarding appearing in NEET 2.
Ans. Apply for NEET 2, prepare well, take it with all seriousness and try to get the best rank possible.

Hello dear student,
Yes dear student AIIMS and JIPMER have been called off the shelves and like a these two bodies used to conduct their own entrance test for the students who wanted to get admission in Medical in MBBS or BDS. But they have combined in NEET only which will be conducted by NTA . This is the first time exam is going to be conducted like this but probably the possibility is that the cutoff will be higher in comparison to the past cutoffs of Neet. I hope this information is helpful to you
AS a total 1,67,102 candidates filled the form and about 1,60,888 appeared in the exam.
APPROX 60,000 students filled form for PGNEET 2020 and about 57,759 appeared in the exam.And for more information you can visit here :-
Its a difficult yet not impossible task.
Being a pcm branch student till 12th standard doesn't allow you to sit in the neet examination.
But yes, if you really wants to go for mbbs/bds/any medical field for your higher studies then you can opt biology as a course through private or nios boards.
According to different eligibility criterias of neet, nios or private board students are also eligible for neet exams.
The details of this are as-
NEET examination code 2:
Candidates who have completed a period of 12 years under Higher/Secondary examination or the Indian School Certificate Examination (ISCE), which is equivalent to Class 10+2 can opt code 2. However, the last two years of study must include English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology or Mathematics or any other elective as a major subject as prescribed by the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT).
Aspirants who have passed 10+2 from National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) or state open school, as a private candidate from state boards; with Biology/Biotechnology as an additional subject can apply under NEET qualification code 2.
Who can also apply code 2: It should also be noted that the qualifying examination code for NEET 2020 for droppers will also be the same. For instance, a candidate has passed qualifying examination from CBSE/ISCE or any state board in the year 2018, but wish to appear for NEET 2020, he/she can apply for the exam with Code 2.
For more details and informations you can check out the official sites too .
Hope this will help you out.
When two candidates get the same marks, then the issue is resolved using the tie breaker policy.
In case of NEET UG, the tie breaker policy gives more importance to Biology.
So, if A scores 300 in Bio and B scores 265 but their total score is same, then A is preferred.
Tie breaker policy doesn't include marks of Physics to resolve such issues.
Only Marks of Bio,Chem and then less number of incorrect answers and finally DOB are considered. (in the same order)
Hope this helps.
320 marks in NEET won't help you to get a seat in any government colleges of Kerala even if you are from OBC Category. Going by previous year home state quota cutoff, you should score at least 500+ marks in NEET to get a seat in government medical colleges in Kerala.
All the best!
