    I am a repeater of NEET 2018.I want to know how will I get the admission in physiotherapy and what might be the cutoff for NEET 2018?
    Is there any need to qualify NEET for physiotherapy? Because some people say that there is no need to qualify in NEET and we can get admission on the basis of HSC marks. Is it true? I have 71% marks in HSC. Will I get admission in physiotherapy in topmost colleges?

  • You are eligible to Apply for the Physiotherapy Course based on your HSC marks. NEET 2018 is only for MBBS, BDS and Ayush Courses. If you have a minimum of 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Biology, then apply to the University. Sometimes the colleges will conduct an individual test and if you qualify then you will get admission to the programme.

  • If you have got 71% in PUC and a NEET 2018 repeater the results are due on June 5th, , then see if you qualify for any of the UG MBBS course. If you are keen on physiotherapy alone, NEET is not needed.
