However, in respect of candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes, the minimum marks shall be at 40th percentile.

In respect of candidates with locomotor disability of lower limbs, the minimum marks shall be at 45th percentile. The percentile shall be determined on the basis of highest scaled scores secured in the All-India common merit list in ‘National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Postgraduate courses.

c. Persons with Disability            - 45% Percentile

The result for NEET-MDS 2017 will be declared by 15th January 2017

The validity of the result of NEET-MDS 2017 shall be only for the current admission session i.e. 2017 admission session for MDS courses and cannot be carried forward for the next session of admissions for MDS courses.

Kindly note that the registration of admissions for MDS courses is governed by Post Graduate Dental Education Regulations issued by Dental Council of India with prior approval of Central Government and the Judgments of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.

In case of two or more candidates obtaining equal marks in the competitive entrance examination, their inter se merit will be determined according to age, older will get preference over younger.

A percentile rank tells how well a candidate did in comparison to other candidates, while a percentage rank explains how well a candidate did in the test itself. Percentile never gives the detail of the marks that you have scored instead it just tell you about your merit position among the number of candidates who have appeared in the test with you. For example, a candidate might answer 85 percent of questions correctly and rank in the 99th percentile which means that percentile is not related to the percent of correct answers a student gets on a test.
Percentile ranks are commonly used to clarify the interpretation of scores on standardized tests. For example, a test score that is greater than or equal to 80% of the scores of candidates taking the test is said to be at the 80th percentile, where 80 is the percentile rank.
Whereas percentage of score is simply calculated based on the score obtained out of the maximum score in the test. For example, a test score of 75% in a test with a maximum score of 1000 indicates a score of 750. The percentage of scores is not affected by the candidate’s merit position in comparison to other candidates who took the test.

While all papers (forms) are carefully assembled to ensure that the content is comparable, the difficulty of each form may be perceived by different subjects undertaking the exam to slightly vary. Such minor differences in the overall difficulty level are accurately measured after all the different question papers (forms) have been administered and the results analyzed.
  4. A post-equating process is necessary to ensure validity and fairness. Equating is a psychometric process to adjust differences in difficulty so that performance from different exam papers (forms) are comparable on a common metric and therefore fair to candidates testing across multiple papers (forms).

  5. During post-equating, exam items are concurrently analyzed and the estimated item parameters (item difficulty and discrimination) are put onto a common metric. Item Response Theory (IRT), a psychometrically supported statistical model, is utilized in this process. The result is a score that takes into account the performance of the candidate along with the difficulty of the form administered.
  6. In order to ensure appropriate interpretation of performance, the scores must be placed on a common scale or metric. A linear transformation is used for this scaling process, which is a standard practice for such test administration.

The aforesaid steps ensure that all examination scores are valid, equitable and fair. Merit List shall be prepared on the basis of scores obtained by the candidates.
