Meritocracy? Less than half the MBBS seats went to top 60,000 NEET ranks in 2017

The government would like people to believe that NEET has ensured that the top 59,500 students have got into the MBBS course barring the 500-odd with a single digit, zero and negative marks in specific subjects that TOI had exposed. However, an analysis of the ranks of those who have got admission in 2017 reveals that less than half of those who got the first 60,000 ranks in NEET got in and less than a third of the top 1.2 lakh ranks got in.

The score of those around the 60,000th rank is 430, i.e within the 94th percentile. Of those with scores of 430 or more, 18,340 joined government colleges, 5,677 got government quota seats in private colleges and 3,468 got into management quota in private colleges. Thus, about 27,500 students of the top 60,000 got admission.
