NEET MD/MS tie-breaking process:
- Greater number of correct responses – Candidates getting a greater number of correct responses will be placed higher in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Postgraduate) merit list.
- Lesser number of negative responses – If the above process cannot set the tie and the tie still exists, candidates with a lesser number of negative answers will be allotted above rank than others.
- Age – If all through these steps the tie even exists, the older (more age) candidate will be given first preference and will be allotted above rank.
- Higher aggregate marks in MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) – Candidates securing higher aggregate marks (in percentage) in all Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery professional examinations will be considered first in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Postgraduate) merit list 2021.
Ranking from previous year cut-offs, the basis of the present year cut-offs are finalized.
