Neet Mds cutoff come down again?! my score 171obc if still many seat r left.... after mop up round still seat r left the ill revised again?! help me out
In general, there are 2 Rounds and a Mop up round that are conducted. This year for NEET MDS 2020, the cut offs have been reduced by 18.935 percentage which is approximately 66 marks across all Categories. Now the new Cut offs are as follows:
General PWD: 26.065
And the revised marks are as follows:
General PWD: 204
Those Candidates who have secured the cut off now will be eligible for Mop up round conducted by the MCC and remaining rounds of State Counselling. But the chances of cut offs being reduced after Mop Up round are nil because the vacant seats are filled either through Stray vacancy round or transferred back to the respective States. The OBC revised cut off is 188 and you scored 171 and unfortunately they cannot be revised again.

No, it is not necessary.. its just that you are eligible for attending mop up round, since you have not been allotted any seats..In the end its always your choice..
And also, your deposit would be refunded not immediately but definitely..later you might be asked to apply for the refund and they would verify it and deposit it in your bank account.. But your entire amount may not be refunded certain percentage might be taken for participation and other things...chances are that 80%-85% would be refunded.
