hey! This is my second attempt I am a dropper as i attended neet in 2019 I studied my 1st PUC and 2nd PUC from Karnataka board .... what should my qualification code be ?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 13th Dec, 2019
Hello there!

Greetings!

Since you are dropper and has passed out from puc board from Karnatka you need to choose the code 3 as code 3 is for those who have passed their Intermediate/Pre-Examination degree in Science stream from any recognised Indian University/Board or other body with Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology and English as a compulsory subject.

You are eligible for neet examination only if you have passed in Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology and English individually and must have obtained a minimum of 50% marks taken together in Physics, Chemistry and Biology/Bio-technology 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.
