Tie-breaker is a situation where two or more candidates obtain the same number of marks in the NEET. In such situations, there are three ways to select the final candidate. Below candidates can check the three ways to solve the tie- breaker:

  • The first way to tackle tie breaker is to give preference to the candidate with higher score in Biology subject

  • If still, the tie-breaker situation persists then the candidate with higher scores in Chemistry subject will be given more preference

  • Lastly, if the above two methods cannot decide the final candidate then the candidate with higher Date of Birth (DOB) is given the utmost priority

After SC declared NEET as a single entrance exam for admissions to MBBS and BDS seats across India, all state level and institute level exams have been declared invalid.

You have less chances based on your marks to get MBBS/BDS college. If you want you can try for paramedical courses.
