The National Testing Agency (NTA) is likely to release the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test-Undergraduate (NEET-UG) 2022 results by this month. Once the results are out, candidates will be able to check them at neet.nta.nic.in. Candidates who have appeared for the medical entrance exam, must note that NTA is yet to released any specific date for the declaration of the answer key and result. The dates are expected to be out soon.
Prior to the results, NTA will release the answer key. To get admission to a government medical college, students would need about 600 marks in the NEET 2022, said experts. For NEET 2022, the cut off is 40 percentile for applicants from the reserved category, 45 percentile for PH candidates, and 50 percentile for general category candidates. Last year, the general category’s NEET qualifying marks for 2021 ranged from 138 to 720, while the OBC, SC, and ST categories’ qualifying marks ranged from 108 to 137.
NEET 2022: Marking Scheme
Once the answer key is out, candidates can calculate their expected score using the marking scheme of NEET 2022. For each correct answer, candidates are given four marks and one mark is deducted for each incorrect answer. By looking at the NEET cutoff from the previous year, candidates can get an idea of the minimum marks needed in NEET for MBBS in a government college and feel more confident after evaluating their scores.
