NEET UG 2022 Revised Tie-Breaking Policy

The National Testing Agency revised the tie breaker policy to calculate the marks of students who are allotted the same marks after calculation. This is done in order to determine the ranks of the students after the final calculation. 

  • As per the Marking Scheme to be followed, students who secure a higher mark/percentile score in all three subjects (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) will be given first priority in a tie-breaker
  • In case students have the same marks in all three subjects a tie breaker where the candidate with less proportion of incorrect answers overall will be given priority in ranking followed by a student with less proportion of incorrect answers in the following order - Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
  • If these are also similar, the student who is older will be given priority and in an unlikely situation when the date of birth of students in question is similar then those who have applied for NEET exams earlier (by Application Number) will be given priority.
