The All India Rank list based on the NEET cut-off score will decide the admission to nearly 12000 MBBS and BDS seats in India’s Medical and Dental colleges. For the 85% state quota seats, the respective admission authority will prepare a merit list based on the NEET cut-off score.

The NEET percentile reflects a candidate’s performance relative to the topper. There are two methods to determine the percentile depending on the two categories, which are as follows.
In the first method, the candidates can determine the rank percentile by drawing a relationship between the total number of qualifying candidates and the particular candidate rank. The formula for NEET percentile calculation based on rank is as follows:
Rank Percentile= ([Number of Qualifying Candidates- Candidate’s Personal NEET rank]/ Total Number of Appeared Candidates) * 100
Similarly, candidates can also calculate their score percentile by drawing a relationship between their score and the score of the topper. The formula for the NEET percentile based on marks is as follows:
Score Percentile= (Individual NEET Score/ Topper’s NEET Score) * 100
The table below highlights the state-wise distribution of NEET cut-off marks for the state quota for the previous year. Take a glimpse to find out the minimum qualifying marks for different states.
