Process of Preparing the NEET 2020 Result

The NEET result can be seen in the form of a scorecard that’s available when a candidate logs in with his/her details. The merit list is thereafter prepared for the 15% All Indian Quota Seats. This 15% of candidates are sent for counseling to MCC. The following methodology is adopted to form the scorecard and the merit list for the 15% candidates.

The score of each candidate is calculated based on the marking scheme that has been proposed for the exam. The correct and incorrect answers are marked, after which the total score is calculated.

Total Marks= +4*(number of correct answers) -1* (number of incorrect answers)

After having the total marks at hand, the percentile score can be deduced using the following formula-

 Percentile Score= 100* the number of candidates appeared with the total score equal to or less than the candidate/ the total number of candidates appeared

The rank of a candidate in the merit list is determined by the percentile score that he/she has attained. The higher the score, the more a candidate is advanced in the merit list. However, if there is a tie in the percentile score of a few candidates, following are the grounds that determine who will be placed higher in the merit list.

  • The score of Biology, which comprises of Botony and Zoology is the first parameter. The more a candidate scores in this section, the higher rank he attains.
  • If the aforementioned parameter isn’t sufficient, then the Chemistry marks are considered. The one with higher marks gets a better position in the merit list.
  • If the above two are inefficient in breaking the tie, then the number of questions attempted is taken into account. Out of the total number of questions answered, the one who has less incorrect answers is placed better in the merit list.
  • The last account on which the tie is broken is the age of the candidate. The candidate who is elder is given a better rank in the merit list.
