Candidates’ fates in the NEET exam highly depend on the increment or decrement of the cut-off in a year if the cut-off is lowered by the authority then the candidate will await the authority’s final decision, but if the cut-off is not lowered by them, then the candidates who are not able to qualify for the counselling are left with no option than to appear in another exam. The cut-off percentile has been made compulsory by a few countries because of which it has now become mandatory for the students of MBBS and BDS courses whose wish is to study abroad.

Methods by which the NEET percentile is calculated

NEET percentile is determined by the comparison of the performance of an individual with the topper’s performance, there are two methods by which the percentile is found, both of them are given below

 The formula for the Percentile based on the rank is stated below:

 Percentile based on the Rank = { (The Rank of the total number of Candidates who appeared in the NEET exam) / (Total Number of Candidates who gave the exam)}* 100 

Similarly, the candidates can calculate their percentile based on rank by drawing a comparison between their individual score and the score achieved by the topper. The formula for this is as follows: 

Score Percentile= ( your individual NEET marks/ Topper’s NEET score)* 100 

NEET Cut-off Marks in All India Quota and State Quota
