Rank predictor: NEET Marks V/s Rank

The predictive rank range along with the marks obtained in NEET 2018 can be as follows:

Marks rangeRank rangeMarks rangeRank range

While creating the table for NEET marks v/s rank following factors are considered:

  • The upper and lower limits have been taken into consideration while preparing the rank range.
  • Plenty of candidates score same marks and so starting rank for a particular marks range has not been considered in continuation.
  • As a general trend, it has been observed that the number of test takers scoring rank above 600 is much less as compared to the marks obtained below the range.
  • The highest score obtained in NEET 2017 was 685 out of 720. check here NEET 2018 Result.

NEET 2018 cut off percentile:

The minimum cut off percentile is defined separately for each of the categories, as the reservation factor is taken into consideration.

CategoryQualifying percentile
Unreserved50th percentile
SC (Scheduled Cast)/ ST (Scheduled Tribe)/ OBC (Other Back ward classes)40th percentile
Physically handicapped45th percentile

Past year’s trend:

It is compulsory for all the test takers of NEET 2018 to cross the percentile barrier defined for each category. Once the candidate has passed the percentile cut off announced by CBSE, their name will appear in the final merit list. This would be followed by writing names in the order of merit. The All India Quota has been defined for 15% seats. This is applicable to all the states. There is a separate cut off list defined for each of the institutes in the private or government medical institutions through state- wise centralized counseling. The rules for NEET Counselling are different for each state and would be followed as per the directives of the state government.
