neet mds score is 285 just one mark less cut of is i can get mds seat in tamil nadu under oc .pvt colleges is also good enough.

sathwika 19th May, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Neet mds is the entrance exam conducted for getting seat for good college for medical courses as you scored 285 marks out of 620 and 1  mark less than the cutoff an i think you maynot get seat in the private colleges in tamilnadu state as you are under oc category you have very less chances to get seat in the private medical college for the neet mds and if not you have to go under management quota but we should pay huge amount of fee for the college and if it is top college they charge large amount of fee better attempt entrance examination for the universities if you score good marks they may give you concession so study well and ALL THE BEST for your future and i think my suggestions and knowledge may be helpful to you.

Thank you!!


when will be revised cutoff score for neet mds be given?

Rishu Gupta 2nd May, 2020

Hi Krishnaja,

As per last year previous cutoff, it is high in starting of the counselling. It will revised because the seat was empty after the last round of counselling or it has been decreased due to vacant seat. So, if the situation occurs this year also, so after last round cutoff will be decreased.
