NEET 2020 Score Card 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 Rs.1000 per response. 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 is awarded, and a negative mark is deducted for every wrong answer. So, the scores can be calculated by multiplying the number of right answers by 4 and subtracting it with the number of wrong answers.  

NEET 2020 Tie Breaker

In the event of a tie, where two candidates secure the same marks in the NEET 2020 UG examination, there is a need for a tie breaker. The Specifications of the tie breaker are mentioned below:

  1. In case the total marks are the same amount, the candidate with higher marks in Biology will secure the higher rank. 
  2. If the marks are similar in biology, candidates are ranked based on their Chemistry marks in the NEET 2020 examination. 
  3. If both Biology and Chemistry marks are exactly the same, the candidate with the least number of wrong answers will excel to the higher rank. 
  4. Lastly, if all the above three points are not applicable as a tiebreaker ,the candidate who is older in age will secure the higher merit ranking. 

NEET Exam Date

The NEET 2020 exam is scheduled to be held on July 26th, 2020. Although, many states like Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Nagaland, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu have extended the lockdown until July 31st which has resulted in uncertainties with the exam date schedule. The exam would possibly be postponed due to this lockdown extension and rising Covid-19 cases.

NEET Cut Off

The NEET cutoff is the minimum score required to qualify for the medical exam. It plays an essential factor in deciding which college the candidate can opt for, and also determines the fee structure.

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 found by:-

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.
