This question can be answered on the basis of the college you aim for. One needs to aim high and work hard to achieve it.
The cut-off for NEET 2020, the general category was 720-147. NEET 2019 was a relatively easier paper, hence the cut-off was anticipated to be higher and was expected to fall in the range 555-575. To get admitted under the All India Quota, one had to score in this range.

In this case, when this is the range of cut-off, in order to get a good government medical college, aspirants must aim for 590+ and nothing less. Since, the NEET cut-off changes every year, one must set a higher target of NEET score to get that seat you always dreamt of.
