— Difficulty level of the exam
— Number of seats available
— Previous years’ cutoff trends
Types of cut-off
Candidates need to consider two types of cut-offs: qualifying cutoff and admission cutoff. While the qualifying cutoff needs to be secured to qualify for the exam, the admission cut-off is the last rank and the corresponding score at which admission is granted into any college and course. This varies from institute to institute and the specialization opted for.
Admissions to the most popular and preferred medical institutes come at high cut-offs. The same applies to the most popular specialisations.
NEET PG 2021 is scheduled to be conducted on September 11, 2021. The exam will be held at 255 exam centres in India.
