NEET 2018 Expected Cutoff

NEET cutoff is the minimum score required in NEET 2018 to qualify the exam. The expected cutoff of NEET 2018 has been indicated by many experts and prominent coaching centres. The crux of NEET 2018 expected cutoff is given below. Giving his opinions on NEET 2018 expected cutoff, Mr. Anand Nagarajan, Academic Head of TIME Chennai said, "I think the qualifying cutoff score of NEET 2018 would hover around 150. Any score in excess of 525 should get the students admission in top colleges through the state quota channel." Dr. Amit Gupta, one of the notable medical education activists of India, in his NEET 2018 expected cutoff analysis with Career Point, shared on Twitter, "Expected cutoff for 15% All India Quota (2nd Round) UR category, Govt. MBBS seats 550 Marks {+5/ or - 5}; For category wise 85% State Quota cutoff, reduce 5 marks from last year's cutoff score."

 

As per NEET 2018 cutoff criteria, candidates are required to score at least 50th percentile (for general category, 40th percentile for SC/ST/OBC) to qualify the exam. Only those candidates who qualify by scoring NEET cutoff, will be considered for further admission process. Last year, the qualifying cutoff score for general category in NEET was 131 marks (out of 720). The official equivalent cutoff score of NEET 2018 will be released with the declaration of NEET result by June 5, 2018. Candidates can get a rough idea of the expected NEET 2018 cutoff as released by experts’ analysis from prominent coaching institutes here.
