How is NEET PG 2021 Score and Rank Prepared?

NBE prepares score and rank for all the candidates who appear for the exam. The following method is used for it.

Calculation of NEET PG raw score out of 1200: First, NBE calculates the raw score of NEET PG. To do so, it following the marking scheme, i.e.

  • For each correct answer, the candidate gets 4 mark. 
  • For each incorrect answer, 1 mark is deducted.
  • If the question is unattended, marks neither added or deducted.

Calculation of NEET PG rank / merit: The raw marks of the candidates are then used to prepare the rank of the candidates. To do so, the Board uses the below mentioned cut off percentile:

  • UR – 50th percentile.
  • SC / ST / OBC – 40th percentile.
  • UR PwD – 45th percentile.

The board prepares merit based on the raw score and checks the marks of the 50th / 40th / 45th percentile candidate. The marks secured by that candidate becomes the cutoff score for that year. Candidates who score more than or upto the cut off marks, qualify for all India 50% quota seats.

What is All India 50% Quota Seats: Out of the total, 50% PG medical seats in India are filled via MCC counselling. Hence, candidates who fall under this category have a chance to get admission in any college across India and are not bound by state quota.

What is the difference between NEET PG Percentile and Percentage?

According to the brochure of the NBU for the NEET PG, the candidates are been provided percentile and percentage individually. There is a huge difference between both the terms which I will mention below:

The NEET PG Percentile defines the overall performance of the candidate with reference to all the candidates. It defines the overall merit position of the candidate in the merit list. It is calculated on the number of scores obtained by the candidate over the total number of candidates who have appeared for the examination. 

While the NEET Percentage shows the overall marks/percentage obtained by the candidate. It is calculated by dividing the marks obtained by the candidate from the total marks allotted to the NEET PG paper and multiplying the resultant with 100.
