NEET 2022 Counselling Eligibility Criteria

To participate in the NEET 2022 counselling process, candidates must fulfil the following eligibility requirements:

  • They must qualify for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET)

  • They must be registered on the official website of MCC

  • All candidates, including candidates from the UT of J&K, can participate in the counselling for AIQ seats and deemed universities

NEET 2022 Counselling Process

In general, there are seven steps involved in the counselling process of NEET 2022 which is given below.

Step 1: Release of Seat Matrix

MCC will release the seat matrix for MBBS, BDS and BSc Nursing courses across the participating universities offering 15 per cent All India Quota (AIQ) seats.

Step 2: Registration

Candidates will have to register for the NEET 2022 counselling for each round, except the Stray Vacancy round. The registration process will be completely online and candidates will have to provide data such as contact details, NEET 2022 Roll Number, Rank and Scores along with other mandatory details. Non-refundable registration fee and refundable security deposit also has to be paid.

Step 3: Choice Filling

In this segment, candidates will have to select colleges to which they wish to take admission. Registered candidates will have to log in to the MCC website with their credentials and then fill in choices. MCC states, “It is advised that after going through the list of seats available, a tentative list may be prepared first as per your preference of colleges, before attempting to fill choices on-line.”

Step 4: Choice Locking

The next step is the lock the choices entered by them. During the choice locking period, it is necessary to lock the choices to get a print of your submitted choices. Cautioning candidates, MCC states, “Don’t wait till the last minute to Register and Lock your choices and to take a printout. Please go through your submitted choices before locking, as once you lock the choices they cannot be modified or changed even if you have made a mistake. It may result in allotment of a seat which you never wanted. Please note that the choices once locked cannot be unlocked even from MCC.”

Step 5: Verification by Universities and Processing of Seat Allotment

The universities and colleges will verify the registration details and choices submitted by candidates. Accordingly, they would release the

Step 6: Seat Allotment Result

MCC will release the seat allotment result for candidates who had registered and submitted choices following the due process. First, a provisional result will be released and candidates will be allowed to submit objections if any and then, the final result or seat allotment list will be released. Based on their seat allotment, candidates can either accept or go for the institute reporting round. Or they may opt for an upgradation of seats. In the case of the latter, they will have to register for further rounds of counselling.

Step 7: Institute Reporting

In this final step, candidates will have to visit the institutes where they wish to take their medical admission in. This step involves verification of the hard copy of mandatory documents and payment of admission fees.

Candidates must note that the seat allotment result will be directly released in the last and final round, which is the Stray Vacancy round. Hence, the registration or choice-filling procedure would not be applicable in this round.

JEE and NEET are both held on an annual basis, and with limited seats, passing these exams becomes more difficult for students. Furthermore, the number of seats in medical colleges is much lower than in engineering colleges. Due to the lesser number of seats available in medical colleges and the high level of competition in NEET getting into a good medical college is challenging. As for difficulty level, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is slightly tougher than Joint Entrance Examination-Mains but easier than Joint Entrance Examination-Advanced, but that is subjective, as seats are comparatively limited in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, making it more competitive. Least Difficult: JEE Mains. Difficult: NEET. Most Difficulty: JEE Advanced. I hope this will help you.
