Prestigious Colleges for NEET qualified candidate to apply

Over 4.7 medical aspirants took NEET-2 on July 24. While the students await the official answer keys to be released on August 7 by CBSE on it’s website, few coaching institutes have already published the answer keys. CBSE is expected to release rank list, cut off marks, results, and answer keys for NEET Phase 2 at aipmt.nic.in.

Percentile scores of students is the basis on which the rank list or the merit list will be released.  National rank will be used for aspirants seeking medical admissions under the All-India 15% quota. State rank can be used to secure seats under the 85% of seats in NEET-affiliated colleges in their respective states. By respective state we mean the place from where the candidate has completed his/her class XI and XII studies or is a domicile in the state.

The eligibility criteria for NEET based admissions in not going to be easy at all. First, it is only for students who met the eligibility criteria of scoring a minimum of 50% in PCB in class 12th standard. Followed by a 50% score in NEET, to make you eligible for the 52,000 medical colleges across India. Then only a merit list will be prepared on the NEET percentile basis.

According to education expert Durgesh Mageshkar, one reason for lowering the qualification criteria is to avoid several seats remaining vacant.

“Only 36,303 students scored more than 360 marks in 2013. As against this, there are 52,000 medical seats available in the country. This shows a wide gap between the qualification and available seats,” Mangeshkar said to the media.

In addition, students are awaiting the minimum cut-off scores for admission to the some of the most prestigious medical colleges.

With 15,000 medical seats on offer in India through the CET, a lot is at stake for students who appeared for NEET. Many students are anticipating that a minimum score of 540 to 550 out of 720 will be required to take admission under the open category for a reported college.

Colleges such as Maulana Azad Medical College and Lady Hardinge Medical College in New Delhi, and similar government medical colleges in places such as Chandigarh, Lucknow, Patna, Gwalior, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru etc will see relatively higher cut-offs – at least 10% higher than those for other colleges.

This year, there are has been a mixed response to the second phase of NEET-where students have said that physics and chemistry section was tough, while others say that it was relatively easier than NEET-1.

Ashish Arora, technical education expert in Jaihat in physics four questions pur, says that in physics four questions had very lengthy calculations. “Due to these lengthy questions many students failed to complete the paper.

 In an interesting trend, maximum questions came from modern physics, optics and mechanics while weightage of SHM, waves and electrostatics was reduced,” said Arora to TOI.

However, mostly students have reported the exam to be more difficult than phase 1 of the exam. The recent update by CBSE that the alleged question paper leak in Ramnagar in Uttarakhand was not the original paper, may have put the anxiety of many students to rest.

Many students now wait with abated breath for the results to be declared on August 17-for both the phases. Following which students can pursue their dreams for medical admissions-at state level and notable, the top medical colleges across the country.
