Experts have predicted that since this year, the number of applied candidates was more than 15 lakh, which is highest so far, and the paper was also moderate in the level difficulty, hence, there is a high possibility that cut off might increase.

In 2016, NEET cut off went as high as 145 for general category candidates, 131 for UR-PH candidates, and 118 SC, SC-PH, ST, ST-PH, OBC, and OBC-PH candidates.
