The newly implemented guidelines will not have any effect on the rankings for the NEET UG 2023 examination this year.
The National Medical Commission (NMC) changed the methodology that was used for assigning ranks to candidates who had the same NEET UG score in the most recent set of guidelines that were made official. According to the release, the highest priority will be given to a student’s performance in Physics, followed by Chemistry, and then Biology. This is in complete contradiction to the prevalent norm, which assigns the most focus to be placed on physics, followed by chemistry, and subsequently biology.
Break of tie-in marks at NEET UG According to the notification that was released by the NMC on June 8 regarding the Graduate Medical Education Regulation, “Break of tie-in marks at NEET UG- In case of tie-in marks of the students appearing for NEET-UG, the appropriate marks obtained in Physics followed by Chemistry as well as followed by Biology in the NEET-UG shall be considered.” In the event that there is a tie for the number of open positions, the qualifying candidates will be picked by a process of random selection that is created by an algorithm.
NMC also provided students whose outcomes were revealed this year with the opportunity to get clarity on the matter. According to what was said there, “previous procedures/rules (as per the information bulletin issued by the NTA) shall be adhered to over deciding “the inter-se-merit of candidates for tie-breaking” in the NEET UG 2023 result.”
PTI said that the new constraints will most likely take effect during the next calendar year. The following is the order in which the existing processes for breaking ties are carried out:
- The applicant who obtained a higher mark overall in the examination, including in the categories of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (Botany and Zoology), then
- A candidate who, across all exam subjects, has a reduced proportion of attempted incorrect responses to correct ones,
- The applicant who conducted the examination and had the lowest proportion of attempted incorrect answers to correct ones in the fields of physics, chemistry, and biology (botany and zoology), followed by
The new criteria for breaking ties won’t have any effect on the rankings that were revealed this year.
