Q:   When will NEET 2024 counselling process begin?

A:

NEET 2024 counselling dates will be announced by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), tentatively in July 2024, after the declaration of the NEET 2024 result. Last year, the NEET counselling dates were released by MCC exactly after a month of the declaration of NEET result.

The dates for counselling were different for the national level and state level admission processes. There will be four to six rounds of NEET counselling, which is the gateway for admission to medical and allied courses such as MBBS, BDS, BAMS, BUMS, BHMS, BSMS and BSc Nursing. 

Q:   What is the procedure of counselling in NEET?

A:
The NEET counselling process is a combination of online and offline.

After filling the form, candidates will have to pay the requisite fee. Choice filling: Candidates will have to select colleges where they wish to take admission to. Registered candidates will have to log in to the MCC website with their credentials and then fill in choices. Choice Locking: During the choice locking period, it is necessary to lock the choices to get a print of your submitted choices. Candidates must go through their submitted choices before locking, as once they lock the choices they cannot be modified or changed. Seat Allotment Result: MCC will release the seat allotment result for candidates who had registered and submitted choices following the due process. 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. Institute Reporting: Based on the seat allotment result, candidates will have to visit the institutes where they wish to take their medical admission. This step involves verification of the hard copy of mandatory documents and payment of admission fees.

Q: Will NEET UG 2024 be conducted twice a year?

A: No, NEET UG 2024 would not be conducted twice a year for all candidates. However, based on the NTA response to the NEET 2024 result controversy, the re-exam will be conducted on June 23, 2024, only for the 1,563 affected candidates. Originally, NEET 2024 was held on May 5, 2024.

Although NTA and the Ministry of Education were mulling the idea to conduct NEET twice a year, it has not been materialised yet. Earlier this year, NTA confirmed that NEET will be conducted once a year through an RTI response. However, students and stakeholders have not been deterred from urging NTA to conduct NEET twice a year, similar to the JEE Main exam. 

Q: How many attempts of NTA NEET UG is allowed?

A: There is no limit to the number of attempts to appear in the NTA NEET UG exam. While NEET UG is conducted once a year and candidates can appear only once in one year, an overall basis, an aspirant can appear for the exam as many times as he/she wishes to. Given the fact that the upper age limit has been removed, there is no barrier to the highest number of attempts.
