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.
