The Tamil Nadu NEET cut off significantly increased for the past three years because of change in Tamil Nadu board syllabus and less repeaters appearing for the NEET exam. NEET score Cut off increased every year around 60 to 80 marks for all reservation categories. During NEET 2021, the cut off is expected to decrease by 25 to 35 marks for most of the reservation categories.

1. Expected Tamil Nadu NEET 2021 Closing Rank Cut off

The NEET score cut off depends on various factors such as

  • Difficulty level of NEET question paper compared to last year
  • Number of MBBS seat increase in TN medical colleges.
  • Performance of NEET aspirants

So we recommend to use your All India Closing Rank or Tamil Nadu State Closing Rank or Tamil Nadu State Reservation Category Closing Rank while predicting your chance to get particular quota or particular Tamil Nadu Medical college.  If you use All India Rank, then the data set size is 15+ lakhs, if you use Tamil Nadu State rank, it reduces to 50,000+ and if you use your State reservation category rank, it further reduces the data set size to few thousands. Smaller the data set higher the accuracy of prediction.

1.1 Tamil Nadu State NEET Merit List:

After the NEET results are announced by National Testing Agency, based on the NEET score, state merit list will be prepared by Tamil Nadu Medical Counselling Authority. This state merit list contains your NEET registration number along with your Tamil Nadu state rank and Community Rank.

Tamil Nadu State Quota Category Merit List 2021

The first column contains your Tamil Nadu state rank and the last column contains your reservation category rank. You can use your NEET Roll number to search for your name and get the state rank and community rank if you belong to any reservation category. I will tell you how you can use these two ranks to predict medical college you have chance to get with better accuracy.

Separate Merit list will be released for 7.5% reservation for students who studied in Government Schools. Similarly for management quota, separate merit list will be released which contains only the state rank based on the candidate NEET score.

Compare your Tamil Nadu State rank with last year state closing rank for all Tamil Nadu medical colleges by visiting “NEET cutoff” Menu from MBBSCouncil App.  Dharmapuri Government Medical Colleges cut off screen of the app is shown here for your reference.

Tamil Nadu State quota NEET Cut off 2020

  • SQ denotes Tamil Nadu State Quota
  • BC represents Backward Class reservation category
  • BCM represents Backward Class Muslim reservation category
  • MBC – Most Backward Class reservation category
  • GS  – 7.5% Govt School Student Quota
  • Last number denotes the counselling round.
  • AIR represents All India Closing Rank
  • SR represents Tamil Nadu State Closing Rank
  • CR represents Tamil Nadu State Community Rank

If you belong to BC category from and your BC category rank is 1100, you wouldn’t have got seat in Dharmapuri Medical College during Ist round counselling, but you would have got seat during second round.

Tamil Nadu Category Rank do not vary much every year during counselling as it is directly proportional to the number of MBBS seats available under that reservation category. After NEET 2021 verified list is released by Tamil Nadu State Counselling authority, we will predict NEET 2021 cut off based on the state ranks and category ranks.

You can install MBBSCouncil Android App from google play store to get community rank cut off for all Tamil Nadu Medical colleges to predict which college you have chance to get for your community rank or State rank.

1.2  Impact of New Medical Colleges In NEET Cut off

Total Government Medical Colleges under Tamil Nadu State Quota Counselling till 2020= 23 +2 (Govt Aided)

Total Private Self-Financing Medical Colleges under TN State Counselling till 2020 = 12

New Government Medical College under Tamil Nadu State Quota During 2021 = 11

New Self-Financing Medical Colleges under TN State Counselling = 3

We can calculate expected NEET 2021 score cut off by using the last year category closing rank for government medical colleges. There is direct relationship between category rank and number of MBBS seats in that particular reservation category.  I have given last year MBBS Seats and category closing rank  for all reservation categories below.

2020 Seats 2021 New 2020 CR 2020Seat-VS-CR 2021CR 2021Score
OC 811 370 999 23.18% 1455 582
BC 667 315 1366 104.80% 2011 538
BCM 89 42 135 51.69% 198 507
MBC 518 238 689 33.01% 1006 506
SC 391 190 451 15.35% 670 426
SCA 76 25 82 7.89% 109 366
ST 26 11 27 3.85% 39 310

For government college MBBS, last year Community Rank cut off for Backward Class Reservation category was 1366. The total number of BC Government College MBBS Seats during last year was 611. It took nearly 1366 community rank to fill 667 seats.. almost double the number of seats.

If any MBBS seats are increased in current year due to approval of new medical colleges by National Medical Commission(NMC) or addition of MBBS Seats in existing Tamil Nadu government medical colleges, you can predict that the community rank cutoff can go up by twice the number of seats increased during the current year.

During 2021, 11 new government medical colleges will add 315 new MBBS seats under BC category. So the closing category rank will be 2011 for NEET 2021 Tamil Nadu state counselling.

Based on the Times of India report, we find that there is very small improvement in NEET performance from Tamil Nadu state students. So we can check last year NEET score for 2011 BC category rank which comes to 538. We expect NEET 2021 cut off for government medical colleges through Tamil Nadu state quota to be around 540, which is 23 marks less than last year.
