Earlier the eligibility criteria for admissions to medical courses included the marks obtained by the candidates in subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Hence, the parents of the students and teachers had an enormous interest in viewing the answer sheets before appealing for revaluation.

This year nearly 13 Lakh candidates registered themselves for NEET 2018 examination and now the NEET aspirants are quite relaxed as Class XII Marks are not considered during admission to Medical Colleges and Institutes accepting NEET Score.

The qualifying marks to appear for NEET examination is 50 percent for the candidates of Unreserved Category whereas 40 percent for the candidates of SC/ ST/ OBC category. A relaxation of 5 percent is provided to the candidates of PwD category i.e. PwD category candidates require 45 percent marks to appear for NEET examination.
