The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is a succession of AIPMT (All India Pre Medical Test) which was organized by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and is now taken over by the National Test Agency (NTA) from 2018. NEET-UG was first held in 2016 dividing itself into two phases, the first one under the name AIPMT which was on the 1st of May 2016. This was considered as the first phase of NEET and the second phase was on the 24th of July 2016. Students who appeared for the first phase of the NEET-UG test can write the second only to give up the marks obtained in the first phase.
Cutoff marks from the past five years
NEET UG has always been a challenge that tested the knowledge of students in subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Botony, and Zoology. The subjects carried 45 marks each, and each question carried 4 marks. The cutoff marks are the marks that are needed by students to qualify in the examination. As we discuss the cutoff marks from 2016 first and second phases of NEET, we also see how the marks are divided based on the category of the students applied for the examination.
Percentile: a percentile is a number that falls below a group of a certain percentage of scores.
