NEET–SS 2017

राष्ट्रीय परीक्षा बोर्ड


Candidates placed at the 50th percentile or above shall be declared as qualified in NEET-SS in their respective specialty.

The result for NEET-SS 2017 will be declared by 15th July 2017

The validity of the result of NEET-SS 2017 shall be only for the current admission session i.e. 2017 admission session for DM/M.Ch courses and cannot be carried forward for the next session of admissions for DM/MCh courses.

Kindly note that the registration of admissions for DM/M.Ch courses is governed by Post Graduate Medical Education Regulations issued by Medical 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 score, the candidate with more number of correct answers shall be placed higher in the merit position.

In case the tie could not be resolved based using the above criteria, the age of the candidates shall be taken into consideration, older will get preference over the younger (i.e. older candidate will be placed at higher position).

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 equal 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.
