More than 15 lakh students apply for admission into undergraduate medicine course. For that, the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, NEET is highly competitive.
According to the last round of NEET, two students can have the same NTA score. So, the National Testing Agency, NTA conducts the exam and it has a standard tie-break policy.
NEET WOULD BE CONDUCTED ONCE IN A YEAR
The director of NEET would disclose the dates and examination guidelines. The tie-break policy would be the same. Moreover, it also applies to the engineering entrance exam. The director of NEET said that they would conduct the exam in pen and paper mode once a year.
SUBJECTS INCLUDING IN TIE-BREAKING POLICY
Last year, two candidates scored full marks in the entrance exam but held different positions. Akansha Singh secured full marks but could not hold the first position because she was younger. The tie-breaking policy of NEET includes subjects like Biology and Chemistry.
For instance, if Ms Singh and Mr Aftab scores equal marks, the graduated policy of the National Testing Agency would apply.
FACTORS AFFECTING TIE-BREAKING POLICY
There are a certain number of factors according to which the tie-break policy applies. The factors are:
- In Biology, if students score the same number of marks, the incentive who score more in Botany and Zoology would get a higher preference in ranking.
- In Chemistry, if students scored equal marks in Biology, the one who got higher in Chemistry would get a higher preference.
- Those students who will have fewer wrong answers in all the subjects will be preferred.
