Online counselling for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2016 commenced on 22 August.
The counselling will be conducted in two rounds for both All India and state quota seats. Candidates qualifying for the All India quota seats on the basis of the NEET 2016 cut-off rank will be considered eligible for the counselling. Candidates may download the rank letter/ result of the NEET 2016.
For 15% All India Quota seats, counselling will be conducted by the MCC (Medical counselling Committee). For 85% seats under participating States/Universities/Institutions, the respective authorities will conduct the counseling.
The NEET 2016 scores will be used for admissions by:
i) All India quota seats.
ii) State government quota seats where the state government concerned so opts.
iii) Private/management/NRI quota seats in all private medical/dental colleges or any private/deemed university.
According to reports, admission to all deemed universities for medical studies in Maharashtra will be based on the NEET 2016 results.
In Telangana, the state government is re-conducting the EAMCET, the medical common entrance test, to fill up about 3,500 MBBS and BDS seats.
The decision contradicts the NEET's schedule as announced earlier by the Central Board of Secondary Education. Candidates choosing to opt for the EAMCET will have to forego the NEET seat.
