The decision to have objective type questions and a percentile score to determine the merit of all NEET MBBS applications, was taken in a recent meting of Medical Council Of India's Governors.This is the first time that a merit list will be prepared on the basis of percentile scores of candidates in medical entrance test, unlike in the past when percentage scores were taken into account to prepare the merit list.

The Medical Council of India (MCI), which will hold the all-India medical entrance testnext year in collaboration with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), has also decided to keep a cut-off of percentile scores of all applicants to determine the eligible candidates for admission to medical colleges in the country.

The Council is of the opinion that having a cut-off percentile of eligible applicants in the exam for admission to undergraduate medical courses in India would be necessary in view of the huge number of applicants taking the entrance examination.

Sources said the MCI was keen to fix the cut-off of 50 per cent for general and 40 per cent for reserved candidates, as without such a cut-off the percentile score of candidates given admission to MBBS would come down drastically going by the previous year's scores.
