“We may hasten to clarify; the states shall not treat them (vacant seats) as seats which have been reverted to the state quota from All India Quota but fill them by taking the merits in All India Quota. Needless to say the whole thing shall be completed by October 7, 2016,” reads the SC order. The court order came after a write petition filed on the issue.

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

Rehan Alam Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

The best combination of books for NEET will be your NCERTs and the coaching material from some top institute. This will be enough for you to get into one of the good colleges. The coaching materials are prepared by keeping in mind the exam pattern and the syllabus of the exam.

If you follow these two things that will be enough for you.

Hope this helps. Thank you.
