A:

The NEET 2025 exam pattern will be announced by NTA in the information brochure, which wll be released tentatively in the second week of February 2025.

NEET Score Band vs Total Number of Students

NEET is the only medical entrance test for admission to undergraduate courses in India. NEET 2023 was taken over 20,38,596 candidates out of which 11,45,976 candidates qualified. Except for those who score above 640, every candidate competes with hundreds of others for the same college/course. It is, therefore, important to know beforehand the sort of competition that one may face for a particular rank/score.

NEET 2024 has been registered by around 25 lakh candidates, and over 20 lakh candidates are expected to appear for the exam. Hence, with a higher level of competition, it is estimated that the NEET cutoff will be higher than the last year. 

NEET 2024 Tie Breaker Criteria

Owing to a large number of test-takers for NEET, many candidates end up scoring the same marks in this examination. However, it is not possible to allot the desired institutes to the students if they are not ranked properly. To resolve this issue, NTA has tie-breaker criteria for NEET. These criteria help NTA allot different ranks to the candidates who have secured the same marks in NEET.

Tie-breaker Criteria for NEET:

a. Candidate obtaining higher marks/percentile score in Biology (Botany & Zoology) in the test, followed by,

b. Candidate obtaining higher marks/percentile score in Chemistry in the test, followed by,

c. Candidate obtaining higher marks/percentile score in Physics in the test, followed by,

d. Candidate with less proportion of the number of attempted incorrect answers and correct answers in all the subjects in the test,

e. Candidate with less proportion of a number of attempted incorrect answers and correct answers in Biology (Botany & Zoology) in the test, followed by

f. Candidate with less proportion of a number of attempted incorrect answers and correct answers in Chemistry in the test, followed by

g. Candidate with less proportion of a number of attempted incorrect answers and correct answers in Physics in the test.

h. Application Number in ascending order.  

The last factor has been added later by NTA.

Till 2022, NTA considered factors like candidates older in age and application number in descending order. These criteria have been removed for NEET 2023.
