NTA NEET Tie-Breaking Criteria

Sometimes, two students end up having the exact same score. Thus, at that time it becomes difficult for the authorities to rank them. Hence, during that time, the tie-breaking criteria come into play. The authorities consider the NEET Tie-Breaking Criteria to further decide the final score of such students. Further, the marks of candidates are determined in accordance with the following rules:

  • Candidates with higher marks in Biology (Zoology & Botany) in the NEET 2021 Exam are placed at a higher rank.
  • If the tie still remains, then the student’s marks in the Chemistry section are considered.
  • In addition, if the tie is still not resolved then the candidate who attempted fewer wrong answers in all the sections is given preference.
  • Furthermore, the age of the candidate is taken into consideration if the tie continues. The older candidate is further ranked higher than the younger ones.

Re-Evaluation Procedure of NEET 2021 Result
