      How does Tie Breaker Rule work in NEET?

      A tie occurs when two or more candidates score the same marks. In that case, the authorities apply the tie-breaking rules to decide the rank. The tie-breaking method is mentioned below.

      • Biology Marks – Candidates with higher marks secured in Biology will be preferred over other candidates with the same marks. 
      • Chemistry Marks – If the biology marks criteria do not work and tie still remains then candidates with higher marks in chemistry will be preferred. 
      • Less Incorrect Questions – If the above 2 methods are able to break the tie then the 3rd method is used where candidates with less number of wrong answers will be taken into consideration over other candidates. 
      • Age Factor – If all the criteria fail to break the tie then the last method used is the age factor where candidate older in age will be preferred for merit ranking.
