The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET is an entrance examination which is conducted annually for admissions to Medical and Dental courses in government or private medical colleges across the country. NEET 2016 was held in two phases this year.

Another reason for receiving large number of applications is that candidates do not have to register separately for different colleges as 36 colleges of Karnataka comes under a single banner of COMEDK. Since, deemed universities and colleges are still not out with any notification on admissions or calendar of events, this also can serve as a reason for hike in the number of applications.

  • For the seat allotment process, candidates are required to be physically present at the time of the counselling. No one else can appear in place of the candidate to fulfil his/her admission requirements.
  • The Candidate is required to follow the counselling schedule. The schedule is based upon the ranks that are provided to the candidate in the score card.
  • After the above steps, candidate is first required to get the documents verified and then get the required information entered into the computer system. Without the verification and entering of details in a computer, candidate can’t go further with the selection process.
