How much marks is require in neet for admission in iisc

Apoorva Student Expert 31st Mar, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

IISc is one of the prestigious institution of the country and getting admission there is obviously not so easy. The admission process is dependent on the merit list prepared considering for NEET. The requirement is that students should secure a minimum of
60% - General
54% - OBC-NCL
54% - EWS
30% - SC/ST/PwD

in the NEET exam. As it gets difficult to predict exact score because the cut-off changes every year.
Hope this is helpful.
Best Wishes!
