NEET Counselling 2019

Since the Medical Council of India proposed the idea of NEET in 2012, there has been a constant tiff over the matter as many states decided to stay aloof out of the examination. In fact, MCI was forced to defer the examination by a year, as they needed to take steps to make amends with many states. However, in 2016, it was announced that NEET has finally replaced the All India Pre Medical Test as the common entrance examination for UG-MBBS courses in various private and government institutions in India. Since then, students are preparing themselves in accordance with the syllabus provided by the Central Board of Secondary Education for appearing in the NEET examination.

This year, the Directorate General of Health Services will be conducting the entire counselling process on behalf of the Medical Council Committee and will ensure that only the best and the deserving candidates are chosen for the academic year of 2018-19. As the medical seats have been increased over the past few years in order to the meet the growing medical demand of the entire mass of the Indians, it has become possible for many students to pursue their dream of becoming a doctor in both medical and dentistry fields.

As per the official news released by the Medical Council of India, the All-India-Quota counselling will be held in two rounds while the counselling for the Deemed and the Central Universities will be conducted in three rounds.

NEET AIQ counselling method for 2018 
As mentioned earlier, the entire counselling process will be conducted in two rounds after which the students will not be able to opt for something else other than the declared result. The results of the counselling session will be declared according to the merit list of the student in NEET examination of 2018. Once the results will be declared, the students will have to take a note of their NEET percentile since those who will score a minimal percentile of 50 will be allowed to proceed further in the counselling process and then the admission.

The steps of the counselling procedure for the NEET Examination 2018 are as follows:
Step 1: online registration of the examinees 
The preliminary step of the NEET counselling is the online registration of the students. Those who will be eligible for the counselling will have to register their names and details on the official website of NEET. Once the registration will get the approval from the system, the student will be allowed to move to the next level.

Step 2: choice filling and locking for round 1
For the first round, the students will be given an entire list of all the medical colleges under the NEET’s radar with all the available medical branches. Examinees will have to fill up the choice list as per their preferential colleges, keeping in mind that the preference decreases down the group. Once the choices will be filled, locking of the list should be done.

Step 3: seat allotment for round 1
Once the choices will be locked in, the candidate will be assigned to a college amongst their preference list and also as per their NEET rank. This college is however not the final one and the student will have to wait for the final round.

Step 4: college reporting or rejection of the seat
The candidates will have two options, one to either visit the college or carry forth with the admission procedure or to reject the allotted seat and wait for the next round.


Step 5: registration for the 2nd round
Once the first round will end, a new registration will begin for the second round of counselling. The choice filling and locking process will be repeated with a fresh chance for the students to enter their favourite colleges.

Step 6: seat allotment and reporting to the assigned college 
After this, the system will allot the seats to all the participating students based on the NEET merit list of 2018. Once a seat will be allotted, the student will have to visit the said college before the deadline and carry on with the further admission steps.
