The NEET PG 2021 results have been declared by the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS). The scores secured by the candidates are now available on natboard.edu.in. However, with the declaration of the scores, medical aspirants now seem to be in search of which rank they can expect against their scores. Officially, this has not been declared by NBEMS, but let’s see what the unofficial sources have to say regarding this.
The first rank or rank 1 is secured by 714 score. According to experts, a rough idea of the ranks shows that candidates having a score above 700 can expect a rank between 1 and 8. Similarly, scores above 675 can have ranks between 78 and 82. Moving on, 650+ scores can have ranks between 354 and 388 and 625+ scores can have ranks between 1174 and 1238. For scores above 600, the ranks can be between 2674 and 2776, scores above 550 can see a rank between 8280 and 8569. Likewise, if the score is above 500, then the expected rank can be between 17344 and 17649.
This year, the cut-off for the general category candidates is the marks of the 50th percentile which is 302. As per experts, candidates having a score above 302 can expect a rank between 82944 and 83353. These ranks are based on the PDF that the NBEMS has released. They can only give an idea regarding the tentative ranks that the NEET PG 2021 candidates can expect. But, this whole analysis is primarily based on assumptions. Hence, the original ranks as and when they are released are likely to vary from these unofficial ranks.
Roughly, there is a bunch of 40,000 candidates between 400 to 302 scores. Nevertheless, experts suggest that if the candidate has a score above 400, then they are likely to get a diploma course. As per unofficial sources, the Board will tentatively release the official ranks one week after the declaration of the NEET PG 2021 scores. In that case, the same can be expected by the next week.
Branches like Pathology and Community Medicine are expected to have the highest cut-offs. However, the expected closing ranks for the same are likely to be around 76000. Other than that, branches like Microbiology and Biochemistry come after the two branches and are likely to have a closing rank of 75000. Please note that these expected ranks are based on unofficial sources.
It is quite conspicuous that the cut-offs have increased from the last time. Earlier, experts had predicted the cut-off to be 260 for NEET PG 2021. But, right after the declaration of the scores, this was clearly not the case. With a 302 cut-off, the scores required to be eligible for counselling have increased manifold. Nonetheless, candidates must wait for the official score v/s rank to be announced. Only after that, the centralized counselling process can begin.
