Government Colleges for MBBS in India

Of course, cutoffs would vary from college to college. Renowned medical colleges have a very high cutoff. The better the college is, the higher will be its cutoff. Students can get admission to either government or private colleges for pursuing a career in the medical field. Private colleges can dig a deep hole in your pocket because they are too expensive whereas, Government colleges are cheap and provide quality education.

Certain factors affect every year’s cutoff for admission to Medical Colleges. These factors are:

Number of Candidates Appearing in NEET

If we take a look at last year’s statistics, a total of 8,70,075 candidates qualified for the exam. As many as 15,44,275 appeared for the NEET 2021 exam on September 12. These numbers are only expected to go up this year. Students will find it more difficult to secure a seat as the cutoff will rise too.

Difficulty Level of the Exam

NEET is one of the toughest exams in India but its toughness can vary from year to year. If the exam is tough, then the cutoff will not be high as not many students would be able to crack it. But in case the exam is comparatively easier, the cutoffs will skyrocket.

Number of Seats Available – Government Colleges in India

As of 22nd March 2022, the Number of NEET Medical Seats in Government Colleges in India is 92,065 divided among 606 medical institutions. Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, and Andhra Pradesh are home to the majority of these colleges. If the number of available seats increases then the cutoff will decrease and vice-versa.

If we take a look at last year's cutoff of NEET, students giving NEET 2022 should aim for:

  • 550+ marks in NEET-UG to get a seat in government medical colleges through state quota,
  • 600+ marks in NEET-UG to get a seat in government medical colleges through All India Quota, and
