5th June 2019. It will be available on NTA website

The merit list will be prepared based on all India rank and the reservation roster provided by DGHS

Check the NEET percentile based on highest marks. The formula for calculating percentile score based on marks is

Individual Score X 100 / Marks obtained by top scorer.

EG: If A has scored 295 in NEET and 396 is the highest score obtained by topper of NEET, then the percentile of A will be calculated as are follows:  295 x 100/396 = 74.49

Percentile based on rank

The formulae for calculating Percentile on the basis of Rank:

Total appearing candidates – Rank secured/ Total appearing candidates’ X 100

EG: If Sunita has secured Rank 5 in NEET and had 8,00,000 students appearing for the exam, then the percentile of Sunita would be[(800000-5)/800000] x 100 = 99.99
