NEET 2020- Percentile and Percentile Rank
NEET merit ranking is determined by evaluating and analyzing the percentile score. Candidates often get confused between percentage and percentile. Although, they are related but different concepts.
Percentage is simply a number expressed as a fraction of 100. Whereas percentile provides candidates an insight who well he/she had performed in an exam as compared to others.
For example- If the score of A is in 90th percentile it simply means that A has scored better than the 90% of candidates who have taken the test.
Percentile is generally calculated on the basis of marks and on the basis of rank. The formulas for calculating percentile through both the method is as follows-
Check >>> New National Education Policy
- Calculation of percentile on the basis of Marks-
Individual Score X 100 / Marks obtained by top scorer
- Calculation of percentile on the basis of Rank-
Total appearing candidates – Rank secured / Total appearing candidate X 100
NEET UG 2020 candidates have to secure a minimum marks/ percentile cut-off fixed by the conducted authority for each category of the candidates.
The category-wise percentage cut-off for NEET 2020 is as follows-
|Category||Percentile||NEET 2020 expected cut off|
|General (UR)||50th Percentile||710 to 140|
|OBC||40th Percentile||120 to 100|
|SC||40th Percentile||120 to 100|
|ST||40th Percentile||120 to 100|
|PH (General)||45th Percentile||125 to 100|
|PH (SC/ST/OBC)||40th Percentile||115 to 100|
To qualify the NEET, candidates must secure minimum percentile in their respective category.
In case of NEET 2020, percentile will be determined on the basis of highest marks secured in test.
Percentile Rank- The percentage of score falling below a given score in a group is known as percentile rank. Percentile rank of the candidates can be calculated by the given formula-
Percentile Rank = (100 X No. of candidates appeared with raw score EQUAL TO OR LESS than the candidate) / Total No. of the candidates appeared
NEET 2020- Revaluation/ Rechecking of Result
NEET 2020 result declared by NTA will be final. NEET answer scripts are basically machine gradable answer sheets and they undergo a crucial evaluation process. Before the preparation of the final result, these answer scripts of each and every candidate are evaluated with utmost care and are scrutinized repeatedly. Hence, NTA does not provide an opportunity to submit objections against the result.
The two main reasons of not having re-evaluation policy in NEET exam are-
- The answer scripts used in NEET exam are machine gradable and thus are evaluated through specific software. The use of software for evaluation reduces the chances of errors and biasness which checking the answer sheets.
- The second biggest reason is that candidates are given an opportunity to challenge the answer key in case of any doubt and also submit representation OMR gradation of their OMR sheets.
This is the reason that no request made by candidates regarding re-checking, scrutiny, re-totaling or revaluation of answer script is entertained under any circumstances after the release of result.

- Marks in Biology- Candidates securing higher marks in Biology section (Botany and Zoology) in the test will be preferred.
