Last Updated - May 05, 2018

The centralised National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET), conducted by CBSE, has been amongst the top choices of aspirants seeking admissions to the medical courses (such as MBBS and BDS) at various medical colleges across the country. More than 13 lakhs students have registered for NEET 2018 for the exam for only 90000 MBBS and BDS seats.

With the centralization of NEET exam, medical aspirants have been refrained from preparing for multiple state or university level medical entrances. NEET 2018 exam planned for May 06, 2018 would be a game-changer for all such aspirants, as its scores would determine the qualifying cut-off for most of the medical colleges across the country.

It means that the students would be able to attend the counselling for admissions to the MBBS and BDS courses at various colleges only after scoring such cut-off scores. This article takes the readers through the procedure that would be followed by the students to get admissions to the mentioned courses post qualifying the medical examination

Candidates can apply for centralised counselling post declaration of NEET Result on June 5, 2018.

  • The medical colleges in the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states would be attending the NEET 2018 counselling. Accordingly, the total All India Quota (AIQ) seats through NEET 2018 have been increased.
  • The medical seats that will remain unfilled after the second round of AIQ counselling will be transferred to the state level counselling authorities.
