What are the Minimum Qualifying Marks Required in NEET 2023 for MBBS?

For national-level entrance examinations like NEET-UG, candidates must clear the cut-off, the minimum marks required to qualify for NEET-UG2023.

The NEET-UG cut-off is divided into two categories:

  • NEET 2023 Qualifying cut-off
  • NEET 2023 Admission cut-off

The Qualifying Cut-off is the minimum marks a candidate must score to pass the exam, whereas the Admission Cut-off is the last rank at which a candidate will be admitted.

Here we’ll be addressing the NEET-UG 2023 MBBS cut-off. The NTA will decide NEET-UG 2023 cut-off based on several factors, including the exam’s difficulty level, the number of candidates, their performance, the number of seats available, etc.

Simply put, candidates who score above the cut-off marks are eligible for MBBS admission, while candidates who score less than the cut-off marks are not eligible for MBBS admission. Different categories, including General, SC, ST, OBC, and PwD, have different cut-off scores. It is significant to note that the rank, established based on the candidates’ marks and used to establish merit order for admission, differs from cut-off marks.

The authorities will announce the NEET-UG 2023 cut-off for admission will be announced after the result.
