NTA will declare NEET result 2020 by June 4. Only aspirants securing the minimum qualifying percentile will be considered qualified. NEET 2020 cutoff is the percentile to be secured to qualify the entrance test. Out of 14,10,755, as many as, 7,97,042 candidates had qualified in the offline exam in 2019. Using the qualifying percentile, the authority will prepare the merit list. Based on the All India Rank (AIR) in NEET merit list, qualified students will be called for NEET 2020 counselling process for admission to 15% All India Quota (AIQ), 85% State Quota seats, Deemed/Central universities, private institutes, ESIC and AFMS colleges. Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on behalf of Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) will conduct NEET UG counselling for allotment in 15% AIQ seats, all seats from Deemed/Central Universities and other ESIC as well as AFMS colleges. The admission to MBBS and BDS seats through NEET will be done on the basis of rank secured, preferences of courses as well as colleges, availability of seats, reservation criteria and other factors. While the remaining 85% state quota seats will be allotted by the respective state counselling committees on the basis of NEET UG scores.

NEET UG cutoff 2020 is the minimum percentile to be secured by aspirants to qualify the test. The cutoff percentile to qualify NEET 2020 is decided by MCI prior to the conduct of the exam and is also stipulated in the Graduate Medical Education Regulations (1997). Candidates belonging to the unreserved category must secure not less than 50th percentile in NEET UG, while the reserved category candidates and PwD candidates (reserved categories) must secure a minimum of 40th percentile. However, PwD candidates belonging to the unreserved category are required to secure at least 45th percentile in order to qualify the exam. 

The corresponding marks to the minimum qualifying percentile will be disclosed with the release of NEET result 2020. The cutoff score varies every year as it depends on various attributes of the exam like the total number of students taking the exam, seats available in a particular academic year and the difficulty level of the test paper. To allow candidates to have an idea of the cutoff marks, the previous years' NEET cutoff has been made available below.

Mode of Counselling: Online, Offline

NEET counselling 2020 will be conducted by Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on behalf of Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) for 15% AIQ, 100% Deemed/Central universities, ESIC and AFMS. The seats of the government medical and dental colleges have been divided in 15% All India Quota and 85% State Quota (except for erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir where all the seats are in control of the state authorities). The counselling for remaining 85% State Quota seats and private universities will be conducted by various state authorities where the respective colleges are located.

NEET 2020 counselling conducted by MCC will be held in two rounds for AIQ seats, while a mop-up round will also be organised to fill the vacant seats in Deemed/Central universities, ESIC colleges and AFMS institutes. The allotment of seats in NEET UG counselling 2020 will be done on the basis of All India Rank, preferences of colleges as well as courses, seats availability, reservation criteria and other aspects.

The mode of conduct of the counselling is online or offline depending on the rules laid down by the state conducting bodies. Candidates who will qualify the NEET 2020 exam by securing equal to or more than the cutoff percentile will be eligible to participate in the counselling process. In order to apply for the state counselling processes, candidates will be required to fulfill the domicile rules of the particular state as applicable.

Steps in counselling vary from state to state. While the All India counselling is completely online till the allotment is done, the state wise counselling slightly varies when candidates have to get their documents verified to establish thier domicile status. This is the case with most states with some exceptions. Also to be noted is the fact that other state students dont have eligibility to apply in many states but in some states where they can, the seats open are private unreserved ones only.

How to study physics and chemistry for neet? what are important topics? which tricks help us?

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019
First you need to make a daily schedule. Study according to the schedule regularly. Go through the  whole syllabus. Choose best books for preparation. One of the greatest tips to crack NEET 2020 can be referring to the best possible books that can help you crack the NEET. Other than NCERT, practice H.C. Verma and D C Pandey For physics.
In Physics, Electrostatics, current electricity, Electromagnetic Induction & Alternating Current, Motion of System of Particles and Rigid Body, optics, thermodynamics etc.
In Chemistry, Solutions, Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure, Thermodynamics, Equilibrium,
Coordination Compounds etc.

how to score 330 in biology in neet

Apoorva Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student, biology is the easiest subject to target to get marks in NEET there are few things that you need to keep in mind to score maximum marks in biology. First thing consider NCERT to be a God and read NCERT line by line as many times as you can is questions that come in NEET revolves around NCERT only and if you have the idea about what they asking in question and if you have studied it in NCERT you can easily answer it. We usually avoid some parts and skip some also which is not going to help you if you want to score 330 in  biology section. If you want to score this much marks then there is nothing particularly important chapter rather all are very important chapters for you. Then they comes main point of solving previous year question papers and then solving MCQs related to every topic and rather say every chapter. Practicing more and more MCQs will only help you to gain marks. I hope this was helpful

best wishes


can I get bvsc seat through neet 2020 in ap state I belong to ur category I am from ap state ?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019

NEET is the entrance exam for admission to B.V.Sc. Once NEET results have been declared, AIPVT will release the counselling schedule and you need to apply accordingly. In short, yes with NEET score you can study B.V.Sc. But because you belong to General Category, your target should be nothing less than 500 for a seat in AP. A lot depends on the cut offs and no.of seats available and so you should aim for 550 and above.


rank in neet ug for this college admission?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019

You haven't mentioned your Category. Neverthless, in 2018 the ranks and score that secured a seat in UCMS under DU Quota has been as follows:

CATEGORY                           NEET SCORE                        CLOSING RANK

General                                      581                                          3005

OBC                                            533                                         10094

SC                                               468                                          35349

ST                                               353                                         118870

Now 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. And cut offs will decrease with increase in the no.of seats. So based on your Category, you should aim for more than 50-75 marks since 2018.


neet preparation kese kare? kya 200 ya 300 marks lane ke liye kya kare kitni time study kare?

Komal Dayanand Gardi 15th Nov, 2019
Hello, Very Good Morning.

In order to score 300 + marks in NEET,  you have to prepare well. And when you have less time in your hand,  then you must have to make some strategies.
Firstly make list of all important topics. You can make use of previous year question papers for the same. Clear your concepts of that topics. Remember one thing,  Never mug the topics, If you mug it it will be difficult to remember.  So try to clear your doubt and concepts.  You can make use of video lectures to clear your doubt.
Once you done with the important topics.  Take a previous year question papers.  And try to solve it. Make sure you have to solve these papers by setting time.  Because tome management is most important to clear any entrance exam.
So using this strategy will will definitely score 300 + marks.
Best of luck for your exam.

I hope it will help you more.
