NEET Percentile Calculation
NEET percentile can be calculated in the following two ways:
I. NEET Percentile Calculation – Based On Marks
Once candidates have calculated their NEET score, with the help of it, the NEET percentile can easily be calculated. To calculate NEET percentile, two parameters are required:
- Your NEET Score
- NEET score of the topper that particular year
NEET Percentile = Your NEET score * 100 / NEET score of the topper
Assume, A has secured 350 marks in NEET and the highest marks scored that year is 450, then the percentile of A can be calculated as follows:
=> 350 X 100/450 = 77.78
II. NEET Percentile Calculation – Based On Rank
This is a relatively tricky calculation; compared to the previous one. Here again, two parameters are involved:
- Your NEET rank
- Number of candidates appearing for NEET that particular year
NEET Percentile =[(Total no. of candidates appearing – NEET Rank) /Total no. of candidates appearing] x 100
This can be explained with the help of an example, take a look:
If B has secured rank 90 and 7,00,000 candidates appeared in NEET that year, then the percentile of B can be calculated as follows:
NEET Percentile = [(7,00,000 – 90) /7,00,000] x 100 = 99.98
This was an explanation of how one can calculate the NEET percentile and the percentile formula in NEET. For information on percentile to marks converter, how to calculate NEET marks with examples and to learn more about NEET 2023 exam visit BYJU’S.
