AIPMT Cutoff 2019 – Minimum Qualifying Percentile
The minimum qualifying percentile simply is the minimum percentile necessary to qualify AIPMT 2019. Note that the corresponding marks will only be stated after the declaration of result as the percentile totally depends on the relative performance of all the candidates who have given the exam. Candidates who aspire clear the AIPMT 2019 need to secure equal to or more than the percentile cutoff of AIPMT 2019 as mentioned in the table below.
AIPMT 2019 Cutoff
|Category||Minimum Qualifying Percentile|
|Unreserved (UR)||50th Percentile|
|Unreserved Physically Handicapped (UR-PH)||45th Percentile|
|Scheduled Caste (SC)||40th Percentile|
|Scheduled Tribe (ST)||40th Percentile|
|Other Backward Classes (OBC)||40th Percentile|
Important Factors for Deciding the AIPMT Cutoff
The following factors would be considered before deciding the AIPMT cutoff:
- Total students appeared in the examination.
- Seat Availability.
- The difficulty level of the question paper.
- Marking scheme and previous year’s AIPMT cutoff trends.
AIPMT Admission Process
- Admission is done through two ways: AIQ Counselling (All India Quota) and State Counselling. Note that 15% of total available seats come under the AIQ (All India Quota) counseling and remaining seats are for state counseling.
- Seats get allotted to students qualifying AIPMT 2018 cutoff marks based on their AIPMT score, institute chosen during online counseling, All India, and All India Quota Rank.
- After the 2nd round of All India Quota counseling is done, all the vacant seats then get assigned to State Quota.
AIPMT Cutoff 2019 – Percentile Mode
The AIPMT 2019 cutoff is predetermined in the form of percentile rather than specific marks. Percentile also stands for a number where a certain percentage of scores fall below that number. Therefore, it depends totally on the students’ performance when compared to the performance of others. For example, the AIPMT cutoff 2019 that is basically 50th percentile for unreserved category candidates, means that a candidate needs to score more than 50% of candidates belonging to the specific category.
Now that the AIPMT gets conducted in different shifts, the scores would get equated with the help of standardisation techniques, which are often used for leveling the differences that might come up because of the different difficulty level of all the question papers. The percentile mode of AIPMT cutoff 2019 also makes sure that other important factors like the number of test takers and their preparation level are also considered for maintaining the fairness of the exam.
AIPMT Cutoff 2019: Tie-Breaker Criteria
The tie-breaker criteria are for alloting AIPMT AIR when two or more candidates score equal marks. As per the tie-breaker criteria, the AIPMT merit list 2019 gets prepared. Here are the steps in the order of preference to break the tie:
- Marks in Biology in AIPMT 2019: Candidates who get more marks in the Biology (Botany and Zoology) section would be given preference over the ones who have got lesser marks.
- Marks in Chemistry in AIPMT 2019: In a situation where the above criterion fails, then the students who attain more marks in the Chemistry would be placed above those with lesser marks.
- Number of Wrong Answers: When the tie remains after bearing in mind the above-mentioned criteria, then the students who have given the least number of wrong answers would be given preference over the ones with more number of incorrect number of responses.
- Age: If the tie is still there, then the candidate who is older in age will be given preference over the younger ones.
Revision in AIPMT Cutoff 2019
The revision situation happens in AIPMT 2019 cutoff when the number of candidates who have qualified the exam falls short of the number of seats available for admission. In this scenario, the Union Government has the right to revise and lower the minimum percentile requirements of AIPMT cutoff 2019 for MBBS/BDS admissions in consultation with the MCI (Medical Council of India) and the DCI (Dental Council of India).
Merit List for 15% All India Quota Counselling
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been in charge for making the merit list for counselling of 15% All India Quota seats. The list of candidates who have successfully qualified the exam after clearing at least the AIPMT cutoff 2019 for their respective categories would be a part of this merit list. The AIPMT 2019 merit list would then be sent to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), the regulatory body for the counselling of 15% All India Quota seats. DGHS will further forward the list of candidates to the relevant state counselling authorities.

AIPMT Result 2019
AIPMT 2019 result would be announced separately for each session (February and May). The exact date of the AIPMT result 2019 has not been confirmed by the NTA till now. But, most probably, the release of AIPMT February 2019 result would happen in the first week of March and for AIPMT May 2019, it would be the first week of June 2019. If an applicant has given the AIPMT in both the sessions, then the better score of the two sessions will be taken into account. The AIPMT result, which is released in the form of a scorecard, would include the marks scored in the exam and AIPMT AIR. The scorecard would also verify whether the applicant has qualified the exam on the basis of AIPMT cutoff 2019. When it comes to the AIPMT AIR, the merit list would be set most likely by NTA and provided to DGHS and state counselling authorities. The AIPMT 2019 merit list would be created in two formats – an overall merit list and category-wise merit list.
NEET Seat Allotment 2019
Since the admission to medical and dental courses is always given on merit cum preference, the seat allotment result gets declared by the authorities only after the counselling process is completed. NEET seat allotment 2019 is simply the allotted college and course offered to the candidates after each round of counselling. The minimum marks of a candidate who has got admission in a particular college would then become the NEET Cut off 2019 of that particular college.
Before the examination it is important to set a target for your rank and knowing the general AIPMT cut off trend from last year might help this cause. Toppr wishes the best for your journey!
