NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is the main and only entrance examination to secure admission to medical colleges in India. Each year, thousands and lakhs of aspirants appear for the exam with the hope of scoring the minimum cut-off marks.  The exam conducting body, National Testing Agency (NTA) is the one that releases the NEET Cutoff every year. As per the recent trends, NEET 2022 expected cutoff for General category students is 50%, for Physically Handicapped candidates is 45%, and for Reserved category candidates is 40%. The qualifying marks for NEET 2021 were equivalent to or higher than 138-720 for General candidates and 108-137 for Reserved candidates (ST/SC/OBC).

NEET Cutoff 2022 will be published on the official website once the results are out. A cutoff is the minimum marks required to qualify for the exam. NEET Cutoff is categorized into two types – the qualifying cutoff and the admission cutoff. NEET qualifying cutoff refers to the minimum passing marks to be scored by a candidate. NEET admission cutoff, on the other hand, is the last rank at which the candidate will be granted admission.

Going by the previous trends, the NEET Cutoff passing marks were 720-138 for candidates belonging to the General category and 137-108 for applicants coming from ST/SC/OBC backgrounds. The percentile was 50th and 40th for General and Reserved categories, respectively. Since 2020, as all the major medical entrances have been scraped off and replaced by NEET, all medical colleges and institutes accept NEET marks to offer admissions. For candidates looking to secure admission to a particular state college, keeping an eye out on the state-wise NEET cutoff will be helpful.
