NEET Rank List 2021

The NEET rank list is drawn on the basis of total marks obtained in the NEET examination which will be announced through the online mode from the official website of NTA. This rank list is the basis for all the candidates to get admissions or to apply for the government and private colleges in India to get admitted into MBBS /BDS or other courses. But in case of any two or more students obtained the same marks then NTA will decide the ranks of the students based on some prescribed format known as the tie-breaking method. This tie-breaking method is the best effective part in deciding the ranks between the students though plenty are not satisfied with the same, it is the officially announced tie-breaking method.

The criteria for the tie-breaking methods are

  • First preference will be provided to the student that has secured more marks in the Biology subject of the NEET examination
  • Next will be the candidates that got more marks in the Chemistry subject of the NEET examination among the candidates that got similar marks.
  • If unable to decide even with these two criteria’s then the students that have given less negative marks will be given first preference and better ranking than the others.
  • If the tie still persists and finally breaks the same, the students who are older will be given preference and better ranking than the others.
