    Q: Is there any chance of medical seat with NEET score of 450 in this college?

    A: The availability of seats into the college solely depends upon the NEET Cutoff score. Depending upon the number of candidates applied for the test and the observation of the results, it can be said that scoring 450 will create a great chance for the college.

    Q: What does Free Exit for NEET counselling round one mean?

    A: The Free exit in NEET Counselling 2020 means that if a candidate is allotted a seat in the round 1 of NEET 2020 counselling but do not report/join the allotted college then s/he will not be penalized and will be eligible to participate in the next round of counselling.

    Q: What are freeze, Float, and withdrawal choices shown in NEET counselling 2020 form?

    A: Freeze (lock): A candidate, who is satisfied with the presently allotted seat to him and does not want to be considered for upgradations of the seat in any subsequent rounds of counselling is required to opt for the FREEZE/LOCK option.
    Float: A candidate, who wants to confirm the seat presently allotted to him and also at the same time wants to be considered for upgradations of the seat in next Round of counselling on the basis of his/her already filled choices, is required to opt for the FLOAT option.
    Withdraw: A candidate, who is not satisfied with the presently allotted seat to him/her and does not want to be considered for allotment in any subsequent rounds of counselling, should opt for the WITHDRAW option.

    Q: When will the NEET counselling process start?

    A: The schedule of NEET counselling has not been released yet. However, it is likely to start in the 1st week of July 2020.

    Q: If a candidate is allotted a seat in round one but does not join the college then will s/he be considered eligible for the next round?

    A:If a candidate is allotted a seat in the round one of NEET counselling 2020 then s/he will be given a choice to join the allotted college or not. Candidates who will not report or join the allotted college will also be considered eligible for round two.

    Q: Difference between percentage & percentile in NEET?

    A: Basically your percentage is irrelevant of how the other students have fared in the same exam and it is just a reflection of how well you did individually.
    Percentage = (your marks/total marks) x 100
    Percentile is a little different as it is relative. Here the scores of the other students in the same exam are very important to how we calculate a person’s percentile as it gives you the idea of how good/bad you did in an exam.
    Percentile = (number of people behind you/total number of people) x 100

    Q: 50% Means, How many marks in NEET?

    A: 50 percentage is 360 marks out of 720. NEET scores are not based on percentages but rather based on percentiles which means that it really depends on how many students score better than you.

    Q: Is there any chances to get selected in government medical college with neet score of 500 marks?

    A: The current situation is that if you score below 500 there is no chance in getting anything through the central counselling whatsoever. Few chances through the state quota are also very meek!
    If it ranges between 520 to 550 you will get a govt seat through the centralized all India counselling conducted by MCI online, for sure to get a govt seat through your state quota!
