NEET 2020 Result Calculation

The NTA uploads the answer key for the candidates to compare their answers so that they get a rough value of how much they have scored. The answer key also helps the candidate challenge the answer provided by NTA by paying INR 1000 per answer. If the candidate is right, they get a refund. The answer key would determine their expected rank and score. For every right answer, 4 marks are awarded and a negative mark is deducted for every wrong answer. So, the marks can be calculated by multiplying the number of right answers by 4 and subtracting it with the number of wrong answers.

The cutoff percentile helps the candidate with the performance comparison among other candidates. The basis in which the cutoff is decided is by determining the highest marks obtained for admission to the best medical/ dental colleges. The NEET cutoff will be releasing two quotas - All India Quota (15 %) and State Quota which will determine the rank percentile of the candidates. The cutoff for General category students is 50th percentile while it is 40th percentile for reserved category students.

The NEET percentile rank is calculated as follows:

(The number of candidates appeared with a score equal to or less than the candidate / The total number of candidates that have appeared for the exam)*100
