When a huge number of students appear in the examination then the chances of two or more applicants to score the same marks rises. If two or more applicants score same marks then also they don’t get the same rank in the TN NEET MBBS Rank List. The below mentioned rules are followed by the officials as a tiebreaker to determine NEET Rank List for admission to MBBS/BDS program.

  • Tie Rule 1: Applicants with higher marks in Biology will score a higher rank.
  • Tie Rule 2: If candidates score same marks in the bio then marks in chemistry are compared and the candidate with higher marks in chemistry is ranked higher in the Merit list.
  • Tie Rule 3: If tie still persists then the candidates with lesser number of NEET exam incorrect responses will be eligible to get preference in the rank list.
  • Tie Rule 4: If all the aforementioned rules could not break the tie then the candidate older in age will get a higher rank in the NEET MBBS merit list.
