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.
