NEET Cut off 2019 – Minimum Qualifying Percentile

Cut off For NEET 2019: It is important to obtain minimum qualifying percentile in order to qualify NEET 2019. Those who will take the exam will get to know about the All India NEET Cut Off, NEET Topper after the declaration of the result. Candidates aspiring to qualify NEET to need to secure equal to or more than the NEET Percentile Cut off as mentioned in the table below.

NEET 2019 Expected Cut-off and Scores

This year, around 15, 19, 375 Candidates had registered for the exam out of which 14, 10, 754 candidates have appeared the exam. According to the candidates, the exam was quite easy and maximum questions were easy, including Physics. Therefore, we are expecting a high cutoff score. However, the coaching institutes are expecting a lower cutoff score.

NEET 2019 Expected Cutoff Analysis

If we consider the last three years (2017, 2018, and 2019) exam analysis, the pattern of questions, selection of candidates and cutoff merit list, then we can see the cutoff pattern is quite similar to that of NEET 2017. However, this year, we are expecting that the NEET 2019 Cutoff Rank might increase. This can be due to the following reasons-

  • The NEET 2019 Question Paper was quite easy. Therefore, we are expecting a high cutoff. But, candidates must not worry, as the cutoff marks will range from 540- 620 marks.
  • The Last NEET Cutoff Rank might increase as well. This can be due to the establishment of a number of new colleges (approved).
  • The number of Candidates who have appeared for the exam has also increased.
  • The NTA has also provided 10% Reservation to the EWS Category candidates.
  • Candidates might get bonus marks as well due to the revised answers, and questions having two possible answers.

Since the NTA has increased the seats in NEET this year, then there are good chances of getting seats in the colleges within a rank range of 11, 000 to 11, 500. Thus, a candidate scoring marks between 520 to 550 has the chances of getting a good seat. If in case you are not getting a seat in AIQ Quota with 550 marks, then you can surely get a good college under the NEET State Quota.
