    1. At the time of release of last year NEET brochure, it was notified that open school or private candidates are not eligible. But at later stage, Hon’ble High Court of Delhi made them eligible to take the exam. So, i think you are eligible now.

    1. If there is an age cap then I think your date of birth does not meet the age criteria for NEET. However, please wait for the official notification to be released by NTA.

  18. 1. Kindly confirm the % Percentage (all together subject PCB) in qualifying exam (i.e 12th Class) for OBC candidate to appear in NEET 2019
    (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test).
    2. Kindly confirm if a candidate who was a regular student and has got compartment in subject Chemistry in 12 th class exam in the year
    2018 and sucessfully passed the exam in 2018 itself, will he be eligible to appear in NEET 2019.
    3. In case the same candidate is unable to qualify his compartment in the year 2018 itself and finally cleared his Compartment in the
    Chemistry subject in the year 2019 then which type of Marksheet will be issued by CBSE to the candidate, Regular or Private.
    4. Whether the same candidate who failed to cleared his Compartment in the year 2018 in the Chemistry subject and finally cleared his
    Compartment in the next year i.e 2019 will he be eligible to appear in NEET 2019 Exam or not.

    1. Hi Rajnish,
      You have asked four questions. I am answering each of them one by one.
      As far as my concern
      1. PCB% for OBC is 40%.
      2. Yes, he/she is eligible.
      3. According to CBSE Official “A candidate placed in compartment may reappear at the compartmental examination to be held in July/August and may avail himself/herself of the second chance in March/April next year and may further avail himself/herself of the third chance at the compartmental examinations to be held in July/August of that year. The candidate will be declared ‘Pass’ provided he/she qualifies the compartmental subject/subjects in which he/she had failed.” It means you will get the regular degree.
      4. I think he/she is eligible. However, they have to fulfill the NEET exam criteria before the deadline specified by the authority.

  19. Sir,I have passed 12th in 2018 and obtain greater than 50% marks individually in physics,chemistry,biology & english but I passed 10th in 2012 & also appeared in neet2018 .am I eligible for meet 2019 ? My dob is 11.09.1996,category obc

  21. Respected Sir,
    I am passed ISC 2018 examination with PCM. Now if i take biology on demand examination from NIOS will I be eligible for NEET 2019? I really want to give NEET and really regret for not taking Biology.

  22. Sir I have completed 11th with PCM as My Main subject and biology as an optional subject and In 12th I took PCB as My main subject am I eligible for neet ?

  23. Please please tell me Sir I am Anuka Banerjee. I have passed HSC with total 78 percentage and pcb with aggregate 65percentage. But I have got 43 in physics 15 in theory and 28 in practical. Am I eligible? Bio-84,chem-62 and English -82.

      1. Sir my category obc…..but mci rule or regulations act 1948 …gen age limit 25 year or SC/ST/OBC relaxation 5 year ..30 year

    1. If you belong to UR category and there will be an age cap then you won’t be eligible. However, please wait until the release of its official notification.

  24. Is the exam for NEET UG will be conduted twice in a year from december 2018 ? Then what will be the syllabus, selection procedure, exam coduction procedure & eligibility criteria for it?

  25. Is a student having both biology and maths stream in his/her higher secondary can he/she give the exam? The stream is pcmb.

  26. It would be very difficult for IB board students to give NEET as the IB board & NEET exam clashes in the month of May. Some consideration should be given to IB board students who would like to give NEET exam where they will not have sufficient time to prepare for the exam. Atleast 1month gap should be there between the board exam & NEET which would fetch the medical aspiring students to prepare well. Moreover, NEET follows NCERT syllabus which is different from IB board syllabus. They have to be given enough time to prepare for NEET. Hope the concerned authorities look into this matter seriously and take necessary steps for a change.

    1. The cutoff varies from year to year. So, i can’t tell you the exact marks. Try to achieve good marks in the exam which will secure your seat in top medical college. All d Best.
