NEET 2018: Qualification Statistics

 

Gender-wise Qualification- A balanced dais

 

Though like previous years, NEET 2018 saw more number of female participants than males,  there was a balanced dais between their passing percentages as close to 56% aspirants from respective genders qualified the exam. However, the statistics of the result of NEET 2018 show that the number of transgender candidates registering, appearing and qualifying NEET was limited to one this year.

Category-wise Qualification- OBC outperforms

 

CBSE released the category specific NEET result statistics for reserved categories for the first time this year. As detailed in NEET result 2018 statistics, candidates belonging to OBC category have surprisingly outnumbered the General category candidates, with 3,27,575 OBC candidates qualifying for further MBBS/BDS admissions against 2,68,316 from general (UR) category.

Nationality-wise Qualification- Absenteeism, a concern

 

Besides Indian nationality, candidates from NRI, OCI, PIO and Foreign nationalities also appeared for NEET 2018. As per the statistics of the result of NEET 2018, the pass percentage in all the nationalities is highest among OCI candidates. One notable thing here is the rate of absenteeism among nationalities other than Indian. The overall average rate of absenteeism in NEET 2018 was 4.28% similar to previous year, but it was highest among non-Indian nationalities, with as many as 16.59% of Foreigners remaining absent from NEET 2018. The high absenteeism among non-Indian nationalities could be attributed to the lack of overseas exam centres of NEET, thereby CBSE making it compulsory for overseas candidates to come to India for appearing in the test.

State-wise Qualification- The best and the worst

 

Maharashtra recorded the highest number of candidate registrations and in contrast, has seen the lowest percentage of those candidates qualifying the NEET 2018. Similar is the case with Tamil Nadu. Rajasthan and Delhi have emerged as the best performing states, with about 74% of their candidates qualifying the test.

The statistics of NEET 2018 results give Delhi another reason to celebrate as the state recording the highest number of toppers in Top 50. As many as 8 NEET 2018 toppers among top 50 comes from Delhi, with Gujarat closely following the league with 7 toppers registering a space in top 50. However, pass percentage in Gujarat, i.e. number of candidates from the state qualifying NEET 2018, is a cause of concern with it being even below 50%.

 

Best performing state: Delhi can be graced with the title of India’s best performing state in NEET 2018 as per the NEET 2018 result statistics. The state has outshone all others by recording highest pass percentage and bagging the highest number of toppers on the top of that.

Worst performing state: Maharashtra is the worst performing state, followed by Tamil Nadu with these states recording highest number of examinees in NEET 2018, but farring worst with lowest pass percentage (~39%), as per the NEET result 2018 statistics. The challenge becomes much graver for these states as they have highest number of government MBBS seats in the country.

Healthy pink, but not winners: Uttar Pradesh and Kerala have given the highest number of NEET qualified candidates to the country and have registered an above average (56.27%) pass percentage. Yet, both of them fall short on various parameters. For example, none of the toppers in top 50 candidates of NEET 2018 belong to Kerala, against three toppers among top 25 coming from the state in NEET previous year.

About NEET 2018 Cutoff

 

This year saw an increase of 16.49% in the number of registrations, yet the qualifying score of NEET 2018 saw a sharp decline compared to 2017. The drop in NEET cutoff score could be a function of the likely increase in MBBS seats comparatively to previous year, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana contributing their 15% government MBBS seats in All India Quota (AIQ) admissions and the higher difficulty level of exam this year earlier dubbed by many experts.

i have 49.33% aggregate of pcb am i eligible for neet ? does this aggregate marks include marks of english ?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 8th Dec, 2019
Hello there!

Greetings!

No , your marks in English is not considered to check your eligibility for neet examination, you need to just pass your English examination, it is aggregate marks in pcb i.e Physics, Chemistry and Biology which is considered to check your eligibility. You haven't mentioned your category but in order to be eligible for Neet examination you need to get at least 50 % aggregate in pcb in your class 12th board examination from a recognized board if you belong to general category ; while it's only 40% aggregate in pcb for obc, sc and st categories , 45 % aggregate in pcb for pwd category. So if you belong to general category then you are not eligible for neet examination but if you belong to any other category then you are eligible for neet examination.

Thankyou

Mam i had not mention my name and date on my photo and my ear is also not visible due to short hair. Can i reupload a new photo mentioning above those criteria in correction window.Mam i am very much tensed that if my application get rejected.I cant concentrate on my study. Please mam help me...

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 8th Dec, 2019

Tulsi, you can upload a photograph in NEET application form only once. The next time you have to upload is when NTA thinks your photograph doesn't meet the guidelines and sends you a notification at your registered email and mobile no# asking you to upload another photograph that falls within the guidelines. I repeat, you cannot upload a photograph for the 2nd time unless you have been asked by NTA. So, if NTA finds it faulty, they themselves will ask you to change the photograph. Or else you can be assured that the photo uploaded was good enough. There is nothing that you can do right now and also nothing to be worried about either. Please focus on the preparation because the fact is that NTA gives chance ti correct images.

If Ive marked my category as EWS in neet then can I change it back into UR if I didnt get my EWS certificate ready on time?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 8th Dec, 2019

NTA will open its correction window from January 15th to January 31st. In case you cannot get your EWS certificate by then, you have the feasibility of changing your category in NEET application form. So you still have approximately 40 days to get a EWS certificate.

Hi I am student of pcmc after 12th and wanted to go for mbbs so I joined b. Pham and completed it so is there any chance for me to write neet and go for mbbs? As I have completed 12th pcmc and b. Pham in biology.

Aditya kumar Student Expert 8th Dec, 2019
Hello there!
Greetings!

  • No you are not eligible for neet examination as it compulsory to have biology/Biotechnology , Physics Chemistry and English in your 10+2 but as you told you haven't studied Biology at 10+2 level, so unluckily you are not eligible for neet if you have done b pharma.

You can check the neet eligibility criteria provided below :-

  • You need to get at least 50 % aggregate in pcb in your class 12th board examination from a recognized board if you belong to general category ; while it's only 40% aggregate in pcb for obc, sc and st categories , 45 % aggregate in pcb for pwd category.

  • To be eligible for Neet 2020 you need to be at least 17 years old or more by December 31st, 2020 .

  • There's no upper age limit for neet 2020.

  • There's no attempt limit for neet examination.

  • Students appearing for Class 12 th boards in 2020 are also eligible for neet 2020.

  • Recognized open boards like Nios etc, private students are also eligible for neet 2020.

In case if you still want to do mbbs then you need to first study biology as an additional subject and then you can appear in neet examination next year.
