can i score 680 and above in neet 2020..if Im prepared at a good level?

Pompi 6th Apr, 2020
Hello Aspirant!

Even the topper will be one of the strugglers among you. So, absolutely it is possible. To score 680+ marks in NEET will be a challenging goal indeed. But goals are meant to be achieved.
So, if you work really hard and are prepared at a good level, then you can certainly secure a good AIR and high marks in the test. Scoring 680 marks and above will also fetch you a seat in your dream medical college, depending on the highest marks obtained, no. of applicants and seats available.

Just remember that thousands of students sit every year for this exam with 1-4 years of dedicated hardwork. And if you are from General category, competition will be additionally tough for you.

But, with your strong determination, you can make it possible for sure.

All the very best!

can I get seat in aiims from good score in neet 2020 and exact 50%in my board exams ??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 6th Apr, 2020

Om, good score means nothing less than 650-675. This is because AIIMS cut off percentiles have been nothing less than 93 percentile even for Reserved Categories. And cut offs do change every year. Cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam.

That set aside, AIIMS requires a minimum aggregate of 60% in Physics, Biology, Chemistry and English. It is 60% for General Category and 50% for Reserved Categories. This has been the norm when AIIMS was conducting its own entrance exam. Now that AIIMS will conduct its admission through NEET score, there might be 2 ways about it. Either AIIMS will follow its conventional 60-50% or AIIMS will follow NEET aggregate criteria. We need to wait to hear from AIIMS.
