Aditya kumar Student Expert 10th Mar, 2020
Hi Dear ,

Yes , you are right, there's no age limit for neet examination so you are eligible for neet examination  provided you have got at least 50% marks taken together in Physics, Chemistry and Biology/Bio-technology in your class 12th board examination from a recognized board if you belong to general category ; while it's only 40% aggregate in pcb for obc, sc and st categories , 45 % aggregate in pcb for pwd category.

Your code will be 02 , as it is for those who have passed their 10+2 in the year 2019 or before .

Thank you

It might and might not possible. It entirely  depends on which college in Uttar Pradesh have taken admission in for your Pg in Ayurveda. Every college has it's own rules and policies so, you should directly check with college admission staff, they surely will give the answer.

My daughter is +2 science and she is interested to choose her career in ayurvedic field.Can anyone tell the scope of Ayurveda?

Aman Raj Student Expert 6th Jan, 2020

Hello Mam

If you consider the present scenario and future prospects then you must advise your daughter to avoid this field. From last 1000 years, there no research in this field. Practitioners of Ayurveda are struggling today.They aren't good in updating their medical knowledge and new advances happening in medical field

Mechanism of selling of finished ayurvedic goods is shadowing.Any body can sell these medicines, hence you see general stores, company, uneducated person, druggists, everybody is selling them without having any professional knowledge of specific system and without any type of check.

But if she is so much interested then you can't force her to deviate the field. She must have seen something great.

Job opportunities also exists in government sector. One can get job in government ayurveda hospital as ayurvedic pharmacist. After the completion of this course, candidates also have opportunity to open their own retail shop of Ayurveda medicines.

Teaching field is also open for BAMS graduates. They can find employment in private and government ayurveda Institutes.


how many mark required for ayurveda medicine admission for obc candidates

Burhan Khan 29th Dec, 2019


For candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes or Other Backward Classes, the marks obtained in Physics, Chemistry and Biology/Bio-technology taken together in qualifying examination must be minimum 40% instead of 50% for General candidates.

For good Government colleges the cutoff for BAMS through NEET is as high as 480+ while Normal government colleges have cutoff in the range of 450+ for General candidates.

For OBC - 420–440

For SC- 350 -380

For ST -300–350

All the best!

Hope this helps!
