my daughter completed 12th in cbse board in 2016. she now want to write neet 2020.what should be the qualifying code she should enter . is it code 2

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 20th Nov, 2019
Has she studied anything between 2016 and 2020? The qualification code depends on this. If yes, please mention the course she has studied after 2016.

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.
