is neet 2020 will be easy or tough ?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019
This cannot be predicted unfortunately. But the difficulty or ease of the exam will decide the cut offs. If the exam is easy, the cut offs will increase. But if the exam is difficult, the cut offs will decrease. So eitherways there are pros ad cons. You beed to be prepared for both.

If aiims is cancelled and the college will be decided by neet 2020 marks then what would be the expected cut off for aiims rishikesh.

Aditya kumar Student Expert 14th Nov, 2019
Hello there!


Now that AIIMS has been cancelled and admission to all the aiims is going to be conducted on the basis of marks obtained by you in neet and it is going to be for the first time, it's really difficult to predict what marks will fetch you a seat in Aiims , Rishikesh but it is for sure that getting into aiims will be the priority of students and thus cut off will be high for aiims so you need to score at least 600 + marks to get into Aiims Rishikesh better aim to get between around 650 marks to be on safer side.


what will be the cut off of mbbs for ur category in ap state in neet 2020 ?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 14th Nov, 2019
Hello there!


Neet cut off for general category is 50 th percentile, usually it is around in between 120-140 marks as per past year trends, for example neet 2019 cut off marks for general category was 134 marks but neet cut off marks keeps changing every year depending upon several factors like number of students that appeared in the exam, kind of marks scored by students, toughness level of exam etc . You need to try to score at least 550+ marks if you want to get into government medical college, for example in the year 2018 , the lowest marks that fetched a seat in government medical college in AP was 539 marks and it was for Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Ongole for general category.
