I am getting 137 marks and I am from Rajasthan. I belong to SC Category...... Will I qualify?
As the NEET 2021 is not announced yet and the qualifying cut-offs are released by NTA for NEET along with the final result of NEET, so it is quite difficult to predict exactly whether you will qualify in NEET 2021 or nor on such marks and category. But we can have an idea about the qualifying cut-off from the cut-offs of NEET 2020.
I am enlisting down the qualifying cut-offs for NEET 2020 as released by National Testing Agency for different categories :-
- General - 50th percentile - 720-147 marks
- General-PH - 45th percentile - 146-129 marks
- SC/ST/OBC - 40th percentile - 146-113 marks
- SC/ST/OBC-PH - 40th percentile - 128-113 marks
So on 137 marks and SC category there are decent chances for you to qualify NEET 2021 but note that merely qualifying NEET does not ensure your admission to any of the medical institutions because you have to sit in the NEET counselling for seat allotment.
For complete details about NEET 2020 cut-offs kindly check out the link given below :-

As your center was in Akola so it seems that you belongs to Maharashtra and appeared for NTSE Maharashtra stage 1 exam. So your Roll No. for NTSE is printed on your admit card which is issued prior to the NTSE stage 1 exam for Stage 1 of NTSE, so you can check it out from there. Note that this roll number should be used for downloading your result so keep this admit card along with you.
