I am from obc category then how much % do I need to get qualified in neet

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

Qualifying Neet and getting a government college seat both are two different things. Last year neet qualifying marks were 107-133 but you can't even imagine of a good or average college at this score. Being a OBC category candidate you have to score around 580+to get a government college.

Hope it helps..

good luck..

What is the west Bengal cut off in neet 2020

Apoorva Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

Cut off can't be predicted until exam takes place as there are so many factors helping in to setting cut off marks as number of students appearing, also the difficulty level of the question paper etc. So cut off can't be predicted while you check the previous year's cut off of West Bengal that might be helpful to you. I hope this helps

Best wishes
