The final answer key will have all the changes accepted based on the raised objections. Further, the result too will be based on the same. While the result is expected by October-mid, students now can calculate their results by matching their OMR sheet, answer key, and question paper. Students can give themselves four marks for every correct answer and deduct one mark for a wrong attempt.
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.
