I am from obc category then how much % do I need to get qualified in neet

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

Qualifying Neet and getting a government college seat both are two different things. Last year neet qualifying marks were 107-133 but you can't even imagine of a good or average college at this score. Being a OBC category candidate you have to score around 580+to get a government college.

Hope it helps..

good luck..
