To estimate your NEET score, use the following marking scheme:

  • Correct Answer: +4 marks
  • Incorrect Answer: -1 mark
  • Unattempted Question: 0 marks

Example Calculation

If a candidate attempted 180 questions and got 140 correct, 30 incorrect, and 10 unattempted, their score would be calculated as follows:

  • Correct Answers: 140 * 4 = 560
  • Incorrect Answers: 30 * -1 = -30
  • Total Score: 560 – 30 = 530

NEET Cut-Off Marks

The NEET cut-off marks are the minimum scores required to qualify for admission. These cut-off marks vary each year based on factors like:

  1. Number of Candidates: Higher competition can raise the cut-off.
  2. Difficulty Level: A tougher exam usually results in a lower cut-off.
  3. Number of Seats Available: More seats can lower the cut-off.

Categories of Cut-Off

The cut-off marks are different for various categories:

  1. General (UR): Usually the highest cut-off.
  2. OBC/SC/ST: Reserved categories have lower cut-offs.
  3. PwD: Differently-abled candidates have a different set of cut-offs.

Stay Updated

Regularly check the official NTA NEET website and other reliable sources for updates on the result announcements, and counseling schedules.

Manage Your Stress

Waiting for results can be stressful. Use the answer key to estimate your score and prepare yourself mentally for the next steps, whether it’s counseling or exploring alternative options.

Prepare for Counseling

Ensure you have all the necessary documents ready for the counseling process. Research various medical colleges and their cut-off trends to make informed choices during the counseling.

Seek Guidance

If you’re unsure about any part of the process, seek guidance from teachers, mentors, or educational counselors. Joining online forums and discussion groups can also provide valuable insights and support.

The release of the NEET 2024 answer key is a crucial event for all aspirants, offering an opportunity to estimate scores, challenge discrepancies, and prepare for the next steps in the admission process. This period can be challenging, with many experiencing the joy of success while others face disappointment. However, it is essential to remember that failure and success are part of life’s journey. One should not lose hope, as life offers numerous opportunities beyond academic achievements. Besides hard work, the blessings of the Almighty play a vital role in attaining success in all areas of life. 

Embracing a true way of worship, as taught by a complete Saint, can bring divine assistance and blessings, ensuring support in this world and beyond. While education helps us earn a living, spiritual wealth, gained through true worship, offers eternal benefits and relief from the cycle of birth and death as mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita. Just as we study hard for a better future filled with comfort, the human body is a student’s attire given by God to practice true worship and achieve salvation.

True worship not only addresses worldly challenges and bestows blessings beyond fate but also secures a brighter tomorrow in this life. For deeper understanding, one can explore the book “Gyan Ganga,” which elaborates on the teachings of all holy scriptures.
