Centre imposes lowering cut-off marks by 25% for admission to 2022-23 PG medical courses

While taking into consideration that a large number of seats had remained vacant in the PG counselling held for the last academic session, the Centre approved lowering the cut-off marks for admission to PG medical courses for 2022-23. The reduction in cut-off marks will be by 25% across all categories. 

This is based on the recommendations by the National Medical Commission. Nearly 1,400 seats had remained vacant principally in pre and para-clinical subjects in the last session. 

As stated by some official sources, “Post-graduate seats going vacant isa sheer wastage of resources in a country where postgraduate medical seats are premium, a decision to reduce cut-off for admission to post graduate courses for 2022-23 by 25 percentile across all categories has been taken.”

The NMC recommended a reduction in the qualifying percentile for post graduate courses for 2022, in a meeting held on the 14th of this month. Going by the reduction of cut-off marks by 25 percentile across all categories, the revised qualifying percentile/cutoff for general category candidates would be 25%.

For people with disabilities in the general category (PWD-general), it would be 20% and for both the SC/ST/OBC and people with disabilities in the SC/ST/OBC category, it would be 15%.
