To pass NEET, students have to secure 50 percentile marks. Every medical and dental college will release its own cut-off based on which seats will be allotted. The NTA will release the result but counselling is done by the Medical Counseling Committee (MCC).

Of the total seats, 15 per cent seats are reserved under all India quota while for the rest, colleges have state-wise counselling. This year, the government has decided to give reservation to wards and spouses of those killed in a terrorist attack under AIQ.

The cut-off is determined by the authorities after considering various factors such as the level of difficulty of the NEET exam, availability of seats in colleges, the number of candidates applying for admission among others.
