This year, for both the NEET(UG) 2021 and JEE 2021 NTA removes the age factor from the tie-breaking method.

NEET(UG), JEE 2021: The NTA has dropped the provision of giving higher priority to a candidate in older age in the rank lists of JEE Main 2021 & NEET 2021. The age of applicants is not mentioned as a factor for breaking ties in the information brochures for both the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test 2021 & Joint Entrance Examination 2021. In NEET 2021 the authority has used the age criteria to determine the all India topper since two students had scored the same marks (720/720). 

What is the NEET 2021 Tie Breaking Rule?

 If two or more candidates score equal marks /percentile scores in the NEET examination, the inter-se-merit will be determined by the following method

  • Candidate with the highest percentage of marks/percentile score in Biology (Botany and Zoology) in the test, followed by
  • Candidate with the highest percentage of marks/percentile score in Chemistry in the test, followed by
  • Candidate with less proportion of a number of attempted incorrect answers and correct answers in all the subjects in the test

According to the information brochure issued this year, the age factor is also not included in the tie-breaking criterion for NEET 2021.
