NEET Cut off 2019 - Percentile Mode

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 Cut off 2019 – FAQs

Question: What does the minimum qualifying percentile of NEET cut off signify?

Answer: 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.

 

Question: Is securing the NEET 2019 Cut off percentile ensures admission to the medical and dental colleges?

Answer: 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.

 

Question: If a candidate qualifies NEET, then is s/he eligible to participate in the counselling process?

Answer: 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.

 

Question: Why does the NEET Cut off percentile remain the same while the Cut off marks vary every year?

Answer: 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.

 

Question: Will the NEET score be considered for admission to medical courses outside India?

Answer: In order to obtain admission to medical courses abroad, candidates will be required to score at least the NEET cut off 2019 score. This implies medical aspirants are required to qualify the NEET exam. This is just one of the eligibility criteria, the admission will depend on the requirements of the respective institute or country that the candidates are seeking admission. 

 

Question: Does scoring marks equal to or more than the NEET cutoff score makes the candidate eligible for the counselling of state quota seats?

Answer: 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.

 

Question: Will the NEET cutoff 2019 be considered valid in the next academic year as well?

Answer: 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.
