NEET 2019 Cutoff Percentile

Percentile stands for a number where a certain percentage of scores fall below that specific number. Hence, it relies on the candidates’ performance when compared to the performance of others. For example, if the NEET Cut off is 50th percentile for particular category candidates, a candidate is required to score more than 50% of candidates belonging to that category.

Candidates having scored just 107  out of total 720 or less than 15 per cent in the reserved categories were declared as ‘pass’, while for General category candidates, the cut-off mark stood at 134, which is less than 19 per cent.

As per the policy adopted since 2016, students in general category are required to obtain marks equal to or more than the 50th percentile in order to be declared eligible while all in the 40th or more percentile in reserved categories are declared eligible.

NEET 2019 Cutoff in Results with category, Minimum qualifying percentile and Marks range are mentioned below:

  • General with 50th Percentile – 701-134

  • OBC PH with 40th Percentile 133-107

The cut-off score for qualifying in the open category jumped by 15 marks, which means admissions to the over 1 lakh medical and dental seats in the country are expected to get tougher this academic year.
