Please note that the process may have changed , and it’s always best to refer to the official websites and information provided by the relevant authorities for the most up-to-date details.
The NEET counseling process generally involves the following steps:
NEET UG Result: After the NEET UG examination is conducted, the results are declared by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The result includes the candidate’s score and rank.
Counselling Registration: Once the results are announced, candidates who have qualified in NEET must register for the counseling process. The counseling is usually conducted by the Medical Counseling Committee (MCC) or respective state authorities, depending on the centralized or state-level counseling.
Choice Filling and Locking: After registration, candidates need to fill their preferred choices of colleges and courses. They can typically select from a list of available options. It’s important to research and prioritize the choices based on their preference and eligibility.
Seat Allotment: Based on the choices filled by the candidates and their NEET rank, seats are allotted in various colleges. The seat allotment process is generally done through an online central counseling system.
Reporting to Allotted College: After the seat allotment, candidates need to report to the allotted college within the specified time frame. They must complete the admission formalities, pay the required fees, and submit the necessary documents for verification.
Second Round of Counseling (if applicable): If seats remain vacant after the first round of counseling, subsequent rounds may be conducted to fill those vacancies. Candidates who were not allotted seats in the first round or want to upgrade their allotted seats can participate in the subsequent rounds.
Mop-up Round Counseling (if applicable): In some cases, a mop-up round of counseling is conducted to fill the remaining vacant seats. This round is typically for those candidates who have not been allotted seats in the previous rounds or are eligible but haven’t participated yet.
It’s important to note that the specific counseling process, including dates, registration procedures, and participating institutions, may vary depending on the counseling authority, state, and year. Candidates are advised to regularly check the official websites of MCC or respective state counseling authorities for the latest updates and detailed instructions regarding the NEET counseling process for the year 2023.
