NEET score required to study abroad
NTA has already declared the results of NEET-UG 2021. It means that students can now start taking admissions in the medical programs in India and overseas. As per the directions of MCI (and now NMC), NEET qualification is a must even if students want to study MBBS/BDS outside of India. So, the question that now comes is – how much score is the qualifying score? Here’s your answer.

The requirement varies slightly based on the category you belong to. For general category students, you need a score of 138 or higher to study MBBS abroad.

I’ve not qualified NEET. Can I still study MBBS abroad?

In case you failed to qualify for NEET, then you are unfortunately ineligible to study MBBS abroad as per Indian laws. We know that it is disappointing, but you should never give up. We will recommend that you do not listen to anybody who says you can still go abroad because you will face consequences when you come back to India after finishing your studies. We wish you all the best in your attempt next year.
