The outperforming states

Besides Rajasthan and Delhi, states like Haryana and Andhra Pradesh have also recorded a high success rate with as much as 73 per cent candidates qualifying for counselling from both the state, followed closely by Chandigarh at 72 per cent. Some other southern Indian states with a good qualifying percentage of candidates are Telangana (69%), Kerala (67%) and Karnataka (64%).

Manipur performs best amongst North-East states

Amongst the seven sister states from North-East, only Manipur has managed to reach a success percentage of 63, while the others have witnessed less than 50 per cent candidates qualifying for counselling from these states.

Exam centre allocation may have cost TN candidates heavily

The controversies that surrounded centre allocation for Tamil Nadu candidates outside the home state also reflected in the qualifying percentage of candidates from the state. Tamil Nadu is only third from bottom in the performance chart. The state has only 40 per cent candidates qualifying for counselling.

According to the official data on NEET Results, the Tamil Nadu witnessed only 45,336 candidates qualifying for counselling out of the total 1,14,602 appearing for the test from the state. According to the experts, centre allocation outside state might have resulted in poor performance of candidates from Tamil Nadu.

Many candidates from the state were allotted centre outside Tamil Nadu which led to protests where students and parents demanded re-allocation of test centre within state. The TN candidates had also filed a petition before the Madras High Court, demanding re-allotment of their exam centres to locations within the state.

Also, the TN candidates getting exam centres outside their state were deprived of their opted Tamil language paper as the question paper in a particular regional language is not made available outside that particular region.

Can i join agbsc collage by writing NEET only ??And what are the cut off marks for it???

Arya 18th Nov, 2019

Hi Anita,

For a B.Sc. in Agriculture, you do not need to write NEET. The admission to this course, which basically focuses on agricultural sciences, is decided on the  basis of the candidates' score in AIEEA which is conducted by  the  Indian Council of Agriculture. For eligibility to this examination, one should have passed 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Mathematics as the compulsory subjects. Some of the best colleges for Agriculture in India are:

  • Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana
  • Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbature
  • Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar

This is a four-year course and the average salary of a B.Sc. Agriculture degree holder is Rs. 6.74 LPA.

My parents are from Kerala working in UP. I am born and brought up in UP, studied xth and xiith in UP and have birth certificate from UP. is a domicile certificate needed to apply neet 85% quota in UP?

Naveen Meena Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant, you don't need any domicile certificate for applying to 85% STATE QUOTA. As per the rules any student who has completed 10th and 12th from UP will not be required to provide domicile certificate during counselling.

Your 10th and 12th marksheet are proof that you are permanent resident of this state so there's no need to provide domicile certificate.

All the best

Hope this helps
