NEET Exam: Check Tie Breaking Criteria

To solve the conflicts between candidates who have got the same percentile scores/marks, NTA issued tie-breaking criteria where the preferences will be given as per the following points, which are given here:

  • The first preference will be given to candidates who have scored higher in Biology.
  • In the next step, candidates scoring higher in Chemistry will be given preference.
  • If the tie persists, scores obtained in Physics will be checked throughout, and those candidates will be given the first preference accordingly.
  • Candidates getting a lesser proportion of correct and incorrect answers in Biology will be obtaining higher ranks on the NEET 2023 merit list.
  • In the same way, the second preference will be given to candidates with fewer marks secured in Chemistry.
  • Candidates getting a lesser proportion of correct and incorrect answers in Physics will obtain higher ranks if the tie still exists.
  • Candidates of older age will be given higher preference afterwards.
  • Last preference will be given to the candidates’ application numbers in ascending order.
