NEET-PG Revised Cutoff Announced, New Percentile for All Categories

New Delhi, 15 March 2022 – The revised cutoff for the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test Post Graduate 2022 (NEET-PG 2022) has been announced by the National Board of Education (NBE). The cutoff has been reduced by 15% for all categories and candidates can cross-check their scores with the new cutoff to find whether they qualify for NEET-PG counselling.Β 

The decision to reduce the cutoff has been made by NBE since 8000 post graduate medical seats have been vacant even after two all-India counselling rounds and two state quota rounds. This reduction in cutoff will now allow 25,000 candidates to participate in the mop-up round of NEET-PG counselling.Β 

Candidates who have earlier appeared in the NEET-PG exam but did not pass the cutoff can now check the revised cut-off and qualifying marks either here or on the official website. That being said, the rank secured by candidates in the NEET-PG exam on the basis of their marks shall remain unchanged.
