please tell me what is the cut off in neet for rohtak medical College in haryana for sc category

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020

We do not have 2019 data yet. But in 2018, under State quota 460 marks secured a seat in Pt. Bhagawat Dayal Sharma under SC Category. Now this is 2018 data and cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. In 2019, the general cut offs increased by 15 marks and the individual cut offs increased by 60-75 marks. So if you want a seat in Rohtak Medical College in 2020 under SC Category, you should aim for atleast 525 and above.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 20th Jan, 2020

Your 12th marks have no bearing for securing a seat in MBBS in NEET. The factors that determine your chances in MBBS are your NEET score, Category and rank in the merit list. You did mention your Category and score but haven't mentioned the State that you hold the domicile of. Can you please help us with the State you belong to so that we can help you with relevant information.

dear sir/mam ,my phy +chem+biology total marks in state bord is 127 so i will get admission to the mbbs private/goverment to any collage through the neet or not

Aditya kumar Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020
Hello there!
Greetings!

You didn't mention the category you belong to dear.

Your PCB aggregate marks is 127 i.e 42 percent.

Now , to get into medical colleges you need to write neet examination for which you need to be eligible for it , now to be eligible for Neet examination you need to get at least 50 percent aggregate in pcb if you belong to general category while it is only 40 % aggregate in pcb required if you belong to obc, sc or st category.

So , with 127 marks i.e 42 % aggregate in pcb you are eligible for neet only if you belong to obc, sc or st category,
But if you belong to general category then you are not eligible for neet examination .


I hope that you find this helpful

Thankyou

Sir please help me preparations neet and beak memory

NAVNEET PANDEY 20th Jan, 2020

Hello uday

To get good marks in NEET you need to study very hard,

As the competition in NEET is very high and also the numbers of applicants is increasing every year.so it's really very important to prepare correctly.

For NEET it will be good if you study all your NCERT thoroughly and as NCERT have a very simple and a good source to clear all the basic concepts in chemistry and physics. Study and practice numericals in physics and chemistry as much as you can,also buy mock test papers for practice.

As you will understand what are your weakness and how can you fix that.

You can also do a crash course if you can as the material provided by the coaching institutes are really useful.

And if you can't don't feel bad just study hard.

For weak memory

  1. Always revise what you've studied periodically.
  2. Meditate.
  3. Eat healthy and green vegetables as much as you can.
  4. Learn some memory sharpening techniques.they help a lot.
