Now as you know what all information does a NEET Scorecard includes, you can now go through the information provided below to know how NEET score and rank is calculated.

The easiest way to calculate the NEET score and rank is by using the NEET Answer Key. All you need to do is to go through the NEET Answer Key and tally the answers to the questions you attempted in the exam. This way you will be able to know how many questions you correctly answered in the exam. Once you know the number of questions answered by you correctly, you can calculate your marks by referring to the marking scheme of NEET 2020 given below.

  • For each correct answer, 4 marks are rewarded.
  • For each incorrect answer, 1 mark is deducted from the total score.
  • No mark is deducted for the questions which are not answered or attempted by the candidate.
  • Total Marks: 180 MCQs X 4 = 720 Marks

Now, as you have the information about your total correct and incorrect answer and also have information about the NEET Marking scheme, you can calculate your total marks using the given formula:

NEET Score = (Total number of correct answers x 4) – (Total number of incorrect answers x -1)

After you know how much marks you have scored in the exam, you can have an idea as to what rank you should expect as per your marks.
