My daughter holds a USA passport and OCI card holder;  We (both parents) hold India Passports.  She took the NEET exam recently and got 455 Marks - AIR = 128K+ and Telangana State Rank 3K+
1) I guess she would be eligible for A, B, and C category seats and also NRI quota seats, please confirm?
2) We prefer Govt colleges with an NRI quota, would she be able to get in as NRI with her score?
3) In one of the videos from you, I heard about quite a few documents for NRIs, would those be applicable for our case too?

  • For getting an MBBS seat in Top Indian Government Colleges you need about 550+ NEET Scores. If you score between  450-500 then it is considered to be good marks but will not get a government medical college.

    So the question comes to mind that what is a good NEET Score?, Which College do I get with a 455 score? So don't worry we are going to discuss one by one all these questions. 


    What is a good score in NEET Exam?


    What is A Category, B Category & C Category NEET Seat?

    A Category Seats:- These seats belong to Top Government Medical Colleges and the fee structure of these colleges respectively is less than the both B & C Category.  If you want to get admission under A Category Seat, Then you have to score above 550 marks in NEET Exam. 

    B Category Seats:- These are the Private Medical Colleges seats and the fees of these colleges are Intermediate. You need more than 300 scores to get admission to private medical colleges. 

    C Category Seats:- These are the NRI Category Seats and the Fees of this category seats are respectively higher than the A and B Categories. 


    So, If you get 455 marks then you are eligible to take admission in Private Medical Seats and If you are NRI then also you are eligible for C Category which is especially for NRI Students. 

    For NRI Students 455 is considered to be good marks but it has very little chance to get a top medical college in India. 

    If you want to get admission to Top Medical College with NRI Quota, Then you need to score more than 500+ score.  But you have the option to get good state medical colleges.


    NRI/ OCI candidates appearing for Deemed Universities must submit the following documents

    Passport copy of sponsored, embassy certificate.

    Sponsorship affidavit (stating that sponsor is ready to bear the expenses for the whole duration of the study).

    Relationship Affidavit (relation of the candidate with the sponsored).


    The documents for NEET counseling 2021 are as follows:

    NEET Admit Card

    NEET Scorecard or Rank Letter

    Class 10 certificate and mark sheet (for date of birth)

    Class 12 certificate and mark sheet

    ID proof (Aadhar/PAN Card/Driving License/Passport)

    Eight passport size photographs

    Provisional Allotment Letter

    Caste Certificate (if applicable)

    PwD Certificate (if applicable)


    NEET Percentile Based on Marks

    For this calculation, you need to know your NEET score and the score of the topper of the same year.

    NEET percentile = your NEET score/ topper NEET score *100

    Suppose you got a score of 455 and the topper scored 720 then the percentile is calculated as follows:

    Your NEET Percentile is= 455/720*100 = 63.19

    So, If you are planning to take admission to government medical college then you need to score more. However, you have scored great for Private Medical Colleges.
