NEET cut off for state quota seats
NEET 2019 Cut off is stipulated in the form of percentile instead of specific marks. Percentile represents a number where a certain percentage of scores fall below that number. Hence, it relies on the candidates’ performance when compared to the performance of others. For instance, the NEET Cut off 2019 which is 50th percentile for unreserved category candidates, implies that a candidate is required to score more than 50% of candidates belonging to the specific category. The percentile mode of NEET Cut off 2019 also ensures that factors like the number of test takers and the preparation level of test takers are also taken into consideration to maintain the fairness of the exam.
NEET cutoff percentile is the relative performance of a candidate against the performance of all the candidates. This implies, the percentile score of the candidate will reflect the percentage of students who have scored below that particular candidate. As per the information released by NTA, the percentile will be determined on the basis of highest marks scored in the All India common merit list. Therefore, the marks of the topper will be considered against the marks of a candidate to calculate NEET cut off percentile.
The tie-breaker criteria are used to allot NEET AIR when two or more candidates score equal marks. On the basis of the tie-breaker criteria, the NEET merit list 2019 will be prepared. The below-mentioned steps in the order of preference are followed to break the tie:
Marks in Biology in NEET 2019: Candidate who obtains more marks in the Biology (Botany and Zoology) section will be given preference over the one who has scored lesser marks.
Marks in Chemistry in NEET 2019: If the above criterion fails, then the candidate obtaining more marks in the Chemistry will be placed above those with lesser marks.
Number of Wrong Answers: In case the tie remains after considering the above-mentioned criteria, then the candidate who has given least number of wrong answers will be preferred over the ones with more number of incorrect number of responses.
Age: If the tie still persists, then the candidate who is older in age will be preferred over the younger ones.

The result has been declared on June 5. The mode of release of NEET 2019 result is only online. The NEET result which is issued in the form of a scorecard will contain the marks scored in the exam and NEET AIR. The scorecard also confirms whether the candidate has qualified the exam on the basis of NEET Cut off 2019. With the NEET AIR, the merit list is prepared most likely by NTA and provided to DGHS and state counselling authorities. NEET 2019 merit list will be prepared in two formats - an overall merit list and category-wise merit list.
The counselling of NEET 2019 has begun on June 19. A link to register for NEET counselling 2019 has been provided above on the page. Candidates who will score more than or equal to the NEET Cut off 2019 are eligible to participate in the counselling process. The counselling for 15% All India Quota seats is conducted by DGHS on behalf of Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) in two rounds. DGHS is also the responsible body for conducting the counselling for Deemed and Central Universities, ESIC Colleges and AFMC, Pune. The counselling authorities of state and union territories will be in control of the state quota seats in government and private colleges, management quota and NRI quota seats in private colleges. Interested candidates must register themselves with respective counselling authorities in order to participate in the counselling processes. The number of seats for each category will be displayed by the regulatory bodies before the NEET counselling 2019 starts.
Since, the admission to medical and dental courses is taken on the basis of the merit cum preference, therefore, the seat allotment result is declared after the counselling process is concluded. The seat allotment result for the first round of counselling has been declared on July 1, 2019. NEET seat allotment 2019 indicates the allotted college and course to the candidates after each round of counselling. The least score of a candidate which has obtained admission in a particular college will become the NEET Cut off 2019 of that particular college.
The minimum qualifying percentile of NEET cut off implies the cut off required to be considered eligible for the admission process. The percentile depends on many factors like the number of students taking the exam and the difficulty level of the question paper. It also depends on the performance of all the test takers.
Candidate who secures the NEET 2019 Cut off percentile only becomes eligible to participate in the counselling process. The Cut off score to obtain admission to medical and dental colleges will be different and can only be stipulated after the result of all the counselling processes are declared.
Candidates qualifying the exam will be eligible to participate in the counselling process. It must be noted that mere qualification does not ensure admission to a medical or dental seat.
NEET Cut off percentile has been provided by Medical Council of India and Dental Council of India and is fixed at 50th percentile for unreserved category candidates and 40th percentile for reserved category candidates. The percentile depends on the relative score of all the candidates who have appeared in the exam. Therefore, the corresponding marks to the percentile vary each year as the performance of candidates will also be different.
The eligibility for state quota seats depends on the state counselling authorities. Candidates seeking admission to state quota seats will be required to at least obtain marks equal to NEET 2019 cut off but this sole requirement will not make them eligible for the state quota seats. There could be domicile requirements as well.
No, the result of NEET is valid for one year only. Therefore, the cutoff of NEET 2019 will also be considered for that particular year.
The qualifying percentile of NEET is 50 percentile for Open, 40 percentile for SC, ST and OBC candidates. The corresponding marks will be released at the time of announcement of result.
The cutoff depends on various factors like the number of candidates appearing in the exam, their performance, and sanctioned seats. If any of these factors change, cutoff may also change.
The qualifying percentile is different for candidates belonging to different categories. Also, the qualifying marks will only be declared at the time of declaration of NEET result 2019.

Hello Shreya .
As we all know that earlier AIIMS was a little difficult exam for all the aspirants. Now this year as all Neet AIIMS JIPMER are combined together so the chances are that the exam will be a little bit difficult but it will be not as much as AIIMS earlier.
Hope you get it.
Hello dear aspirant.
First of all selection has two meanings in this case one is to qualify Neet and other is to get a government college in a course.
Now as from this year onwards Neet JIPMER and AIIMS are combined and hence there will be rise in cutoff it will be around 115-125 for pH to qualify Neet. Next thing is to get a good college you have to be at around 550+ for MBBS and slightly lower for BDS bhms bums BAMS etc in government colleges.
Hope it will help you.
