I am from kolkata. how much minimum do I need to score in neet ug 2020 to get into aiims kalyani?

Aditya Kumar Student Expert 24th May, 2020
Hello pratiksha

It is extremely difficult to predict marks required by you to get a seat in AIIMS kalyani or any other AIIMS

As it is the first time ever when AIIMS  will be offering  admission through neet examination, also marks required to get a seat will depend upon various factors like kind of marks obtained by students in the examination , toughness level of the neet examination etc.

Also, seats are very limited in AIIMS ,
keeping these things in mind you should target around 650 marks at least in your neet examination if you want to get a seat in Aiims kalyani if you belong to general category

I hope that you find this helpful

Thank you
