What is the maximum rank for radiology pg seat

Siddharth Raghav 13th May, 2020

Hello,

Previous year MD Radiology was not offered in admissions under All India Quota Counselling. However, I cannot say this certainly about state quota counselling. Instead of MD Radiology, admissions were offered in sister fields i.e. MD Radio Therapy and MD Radio Diagnosis. I will tell you my estimations for the sister courses for now.

Before I come to the rank required, note that it is not possible to accurately predict the rank which will be required for admission since it changes from year on year due to fluctuations in preparatory levels of fellow competitors, difficulty level of the exam, etc. etc. Still, considering previous year last ranks may give us a rough estimation of rank required to get admission in MD radio therapy and MD radio diagnosis.

The data given below is that of 50% All India Counselling only.

  • M.D. Radio-Therapy- In 2017, the last rank in general category candidate who got admission in MDRadio-therapy course in NEET PG 2017 50% AIQ counselling was 7,211.

  • M.D. Radio-Diagnosis- In 2017, the last rank in general category candidate who got admission in MD Radio-diagnosis course in NEET PG 2017 50% AIQ counselling was 2,186.

So, if we go by previous year matrix, for getting admission in radio therapy, you can consider that  a rank of 6,000 or so, to be a safe rank to get admission under AIQ counselling in said course, while for getting admission in radio diagnosis, you will need a better rank falling within the range of below 2,000. But again, these are just rought estimates and the rank might be little higher for state quota.

The data of state quota, is huge and it is difficult to mannually dig previous year PG admission course-wise data for every college in all states of India. In case you wish to know about your chances of getting radio therapy course in state quota counselling, you can use the automated College Predictor tool of Careers360. You can enter your rank and marks scored in NEET PG 2018, and it will give you the list of colleges you might get admissions in. The NEET PG College predictor tool will collate data of many previous years’ , normalize it (by making different maximum marks (like 1500 of NEET 2017 & 1200 of NEET 2018) comparable) and give you the prediction.

You may get more details about NEET PG cutoff and counselling  the links  below.

All about NEET PG Cutoff

All about NEET PG counselling

Hope it helps.

Feel free to ask questions if any.

All the best!
