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..
If unfortunately your Neet score of 2019 was low . Then yes you can surely apply for neet exam this year again and study hard to get some good marks . Solve previous year question papers and sample papers join test serieses and study as much as you can. Have believe in yourself you will surely succeed.
Hello Komal .
I request you to please ask a formal and legal question which we can understand and answer easily.
Talking about Neet you can give this exam while appearing for your board exam 10+2 and can give five more times at least depends on your category. You can give it also if you are pursuing any course also whether in first year or second.
Hope you get it.
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
