We do not have 2019 data yet. But in 2018, under State quota, 508 marks secured a seat in Balangir Medical College under General Category. That was the cut off. Now cut offs change every year and are dependant on various factors like no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. Considering all these facts, you should atleast aim for 550 and above.
