Can i get into any private mbbs college with neet score of 150. For st category
Actually cut off marks for medical colleges keeps changing every year depending upon various factors like number of students that appeared in the exam, kind of marks obtained by them , toughness level of the examination etc.
But as per previous year trends 150 marks is quite low if you want to get a Government quota seat in private medical college , with 150 marks you may get a management quota seat in private medical colleges but fee is insanely high for the same and it will cost you an arm and leg.
Last year in Karnataka 410 marks was the lowest marks for St category for getting a government quota seat in private medical college for MBBS and it was for Shridevi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Hospital, Tumkur
So, you need to get at least 450 marks in NEET 2020 even if you want to get into private medical colleges for Government quota seats
