Sir, can anyone please tell me that for the eligibility criteria of neet, that is 50 % aggregate in pcb in hs, is this marks included for both theory and practical or only in theory ?? I got 50 in physics (theory =22, practical=28) am I eligible ??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 20th Nov, 2019
Yash, for you to be considered for NEET, you should complete your 12th and pass in all subjects. And score a minimum aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Now your marks will be a mix of both theory and practicals. So you have to pass both in theory and practicals in all subjects but score 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It is 50% for General Category, 45% for PWD and 40% for OBC,SC,ST. Now it isn't clear which board you studied in. But if 22 means pass in theory, then you are good to go.
