    Hello my score in Neet 2020 is near to 465. can i get admissionn in govt college. my state is up. please suggest.


    As per the previous years marks vs rank with 465 marks you can expect an all india rank in the range of 65000-75000.

    The rank obtained for marks and cutoff marks for admission changes every year as they depend on factors like number of student applied, category etc.

    As you you have not mentioned your category, as per the previous cutoff it seems difficult for you to get a medical mbbs seat in up government medical colleges both through All india qouta and state qouta.

    You can try for the private medical colleges or otyer medical courses like B.A.M.S, B.U.M.S etc.
