  1. As I am not able to score 60% for the 12 standard then after improvement exam shall I’ll be able to sit for the neet exam after improvement.

    • Hello Kanika,

      For NEET, you need to score only 50% in 12th standard. As far as improvement exam is concerned, NEET 2017 official brochure has no clause related to improvement exam. Hence, can’t tell you sure if improvement marks will be considered.

      However, as a reference, the engineering entrance exams (JEE, BITSAT etc.) do consider improvement exam marks provided you reappear for all subjects in the improvement exams.


    • Hello Mayank,

      As per last year’s criteria, you need to score an aggregate of 60% marks (50% for SC/ST) in Physics, Chemistry, Biology & English. If you have this much of marks then you are eligible.
