NEET SS 2023 cutoff was revised by NBEMS as per the recommendation by NMC. Based on the letter by the Ministry of Health, Government of India, the NEET SS cutoff 2023 has been reduced from 50th percentile to 20th percentile for each of the 13 groups of specialisations. 

The original NEET SS 2023 cutoff was released along with the result online on the NBEMS website on October 16. While the  NEET SS counselling 2023 is underway, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has recommended to reduce the NEET SS cutoff 2023 to 20 points. "The issue has been considered by the Ministry in consultation with the National Medical Commission (NMC). The NMC has recommended for cut off qualifying percentile for NEET SS-2023 may be reduced to 20 points. The recommendation of the NMC has been approved by the Hon'ble HFM. It is requested to take further necessary action in this matter," reads a letter by the Government of India sent to the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS), the exam conducting body.

The cutoff is the minimum percentile of marks required to qualify for the exam in that particular super speciality. The qualifying NEET SS 2023 cutoff was 50 percentile and the cutoff marks were released by NBE after the result according to this, which has now been reduced to 20 percentile. Candidates who score the minimum cutoff score are eligible for NEET SS 2023 counselling. NEET SS 2023 exam was held on September 29 & September 30. NBE uploaded NEET SS 2023 result on October 15. 

The NEET SS 2024 exam will be conducted tentatively in the third week of September 2024. The result will be declared in the second week of October 2024. The NEET SS cutoff for 2024 will be released along with the result. It is expected that the NEET SS cutoff 2024 will be similar to that of last year. 

The previous records for the NEET SS cutoff has also been provided here to help candidates know the difficulty level of the examination. They will also be able to set a target score for the examination with the help of the NEET SS cutoff. Several factors determine the cutoff for the NEET SS exam. A few of them have been listed below:

  1. Total number of candidates who have applied for a particular super speciality course
  2. Performance of the candidates in the examination
  3. The total number of seats available
  4. The difficulty level of the question paper
  5. NEET SS cutoff for the previous year

Q:   When will NBE release NEET SS cutoff?

A:

NBE or the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS), the NEET SS exam conducting authority, releases the cutoff scores or the qualifying scores along with the result. Even though NBE announces the NEET SS qualifying percentile in the information bulletin, the exact qualifying marks, or the NEET SS cutoff is released on the day of the result declaration. 

 

Q:   Did MCC revise the NEET SS cutoff 2023?

A:

Yes, NMC recommended the reduction of NEET SS cutoff 2023 to 20 points. In a letter written by the Government of India to NBEMS, the exam conducting body, it has been requested to revise the cutoff marks for each specialisation as per the NMC recommendation. At times, cutoff is reduced to fill seats remained vacant after counselling. MCC had reduced cut off for NEET SS 2022 by 20 percentile for each speciality. 

 

Q:   Will the NEET SS rank list change if the cut off is revised?

A:

No, revision of the NEET SS cut off or qualifying percentile will not affect the rank obtained by the candidate in any way. However, in case the NEET SS cutoff is lowered, and more candidates qualify for the exam, then all those candidates will be eligible to participate for the NEET SS counselling process. Last year, additional rounds of NEET SS counselling were conducted since the cutoff was reduced later, to give equal scopes to the newly qualified candidates of the exam. However, their merit positions or the All India Ranks did not change.

NEET SS Cutoff 2023: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on NEET SS cutoff. 

Q:   What is the desired NEET SS score to get into Maulana Azad Medical College, University of Delhi?

A:

Predicting the exact NEET SS score required for MS Orthopaedics at Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) is difficult because it depends on several factors that can change year to year. Here's what we can discuss:

  • Cutoff Trends: Instead of a single desired score, there's a cutoff rank that varies annually. This cutoff rank is the lowest rank at which a candidate received admission in the previous year's counselling.

  • Factors Affecting Cutoff: The cutoff rank depends on the number of applicants, the difficulty level of the exam, and the total number of seats available.

  • MS Ortho Cutoff Range (Estimated): While I cannot provide the exact cutoff for the upcoming session, we can look at past trends to get an estimate. MAMC is a prestigious institute, so the MS Orthopaedics cutoff is likely to be quite high, possibly in the range of below 100 to 200 nationally.

Here's how you can find the most recent cutoff information for MAMC MS Orthopaedics:

  • Official Sources: Check the official website of MAMC or the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) for previous years' cutoff ranks.
  • Third-Party Resources: Medical entrance exam prep websites or forums might compile and share previous years' cutoffs, though ensure they are reputable sources.
 

Q:   Which are the institutes that don't accept NEET SS score for admission?

A:

Some of the institutes don't accept NEET SS score for admission into DM/MCh courses. These institutes conduct their own entrance test for admission. The following Medical institutions are not covered for admission to DM/MCh courses through NEET-SS: 

  • AIIMS, New Delhi and other AIIMS running super specialty programme
  •  PGIMER, Chandigarh
