The NEET selection process is based on a merit list (All India Rank / State Rank) that the National Testing Agency (NTA) prepares after successfully completing the exam.
The selection process for the NEET exam can be divided into three stages:
After the declaration of results, all successful candidates can participate in the counselling process based on their ranks on the merit list (all India and the State merit list). The MCC (Medical Counselling Committee) will organise the NEET 2023 counselling for admissions to various medical courses as an essential step in the NEET selection process.
The MCC is conducting centralised counselling for NEET applicants of all categories. There will be four rounds of counselling:
The MCC will conduct counselling for 15% of All India Quota seats in four rounds. However, qualified NEET candidates can only enrol in AIQ round 1, AIQ round 2, and AIQ mop-up round. The state authorities will conduct state-level NEET counselling separately for state-quota seats. The respective state authorities will allow admission to government and private unaided/ aided minority/ non-minority medical/ dental colleges.
As part of the counselling process, applicants must complete the online form to select the college options to which they want admission. The authorities will allocate the seats to the candidates depending on the rank and availability of seats in participating universities.
The eligibility criteria for NEET include the upper age limit, educational qualification, nationality, minimum qualification scores, and other requirements. Read on to learn more about the category-wise NEET eligibility guidelines necessary for the NEET Selection Process.
However, the upper age limit decision was pending before the Hon’ble Supreme Court, so all candidates can apply for NEET Exam 2023 as the upper age limit was removed.
Note that candidates must upload proof of their date of birth while filling up the NEET Application Form.
Understanding the NEET selection process will be incomplete without discussing the NEET reservation criteria. As per the NTA NEET reservation criteria, the seats will be reserved for various categories, including GEN-EWS, OBC-NCL, ST, SC, and PwD in the Central Universities. Check the table below:
|Quota||Reservation of seats (in percentage )|
|All India Quota Seats (AIQ)||15%|
|Reservations for other than All India Quota||85%|
Note that the candidates hailing from Ladakh, Jammu, and Kashmir are not eligible for a 15% reservation of all India Quota Seats.
Under the All India Quota (AIQ), about 15% reservation of the total seats are available at the All India level. Check the table below for all seat reservations in AIQ.
|Category||Reservation of Seats|
|General – EWS||10%|
The remaining 85% of seats left after 15% of the AIQ seats of all private and government medical colleges will qualify for NEET State Quota. Therefore, the separate counselling will be led by their respective authority in the state/union territories.
The state-level counselling and a merit list as per the NEET selection process will determine the filling of seats in the state-level quota. The rules governing States quota seats will be governed by the legislative authorities of the respective States.
