NEET PG 2017: Health Ministry lowers cut off scores; revises state quota merit list

In a major development, the Union Health Ministry in consultation with Medical Council of India has reduced the qualifying marks, i.e., for NEET PG cut off by 7.5 percentile, to be applicable for 2017 academic year, only. This move is likely to benefit around 10,000 post graduate medical aspirants. Moreover, the NBE has also released a revised NEET PG result and cut off scores for 50% state quota seats. However, there is no change in 50% All India Quota MD/MS and PG Diploma seats.

“...It has been decided with the consultation with Medical Council of India (MCI), to reduce the percentile cut offs for NEET PG 2017 by 7.5 percentile taking them to 42.5 for general candidates and 32.5 for reserved categories” states an official notification undersigned by Arun Singhal, Joint Secretary, Medical Education.

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for post graduate admissions is conducted by National Board of Examination (NBE) annually for admissions to MD, MS and PG Diploma seats across the country. The qualifying criteria in NEET PG was set at 50th percentile for General category, 40th percentile for OBC/SC/ST and 45th percentile for PWD category candidates. Now, with the reduced cut off marks by 7.5 percentile, the new qualifying percentile for General category candidates is 42.5, while it is 32.5 and 37.5 percentile for SC/ST/OBC and PWD candidates, respectively.
