This merit list will be used for the admission process of the AIQ counselling

NTA will also share the details of the candidates who have qualified the examination with their respective states for admission to the 85 per cent state quota seats

This is where the role of NTA ends

NEET Counselling

The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) will announce the NEET 2022 counselling schedule and seat matrix for the 15 per cent AIQ seats. On the other hand, State Medical Counselling Authorities will release the notification for the counselling of the 85 per cent State Quota seats. Candidates will have to follow the procedure stated by the counselling authorities.

What to do immediately after NEET 2022 conclusion

As mentioned above, NEET 2022 is an offline examination. Candidates are allowed to carry the NEET question paper along with them after the examination concludes. Candidates are not allowed to mark anything on the question paper of NEET. Therefore, the first thing that such candidates must do after the examination is over, is mark the answers on their question paper. Since their memory is fresh right after the examination, there is little chance of getting these wrong.

After the conclusion of NEET, various coaching classes analysed the question paper and released answer keys for various sets and codes on the same date. They are mostly accurate and will help you count the number of correct and incorrect responses in the examination.

Once candidates are done counting the correct and incorrect responses, use the formula given below to calculate the expected marks for NEET 2022.

Marks Obtained= (Number of correct responses) x4 - (Number of incorrect responses) x1

They can use the data given in the NEET marks vs rank articles to estimate the ‘All India Rank’ for NEET. You can also enter your scores directly in NEET College Predictor. With the help of this predictor, you can determine what colleges they can apply to for their medical admission. One can then start researching the course/colleges that were predicted by the NEET College Predictor and take an informed decision.

What after NEET 2022: Announcement of the Result

Once the result is announced, which is likely to be declared in the first week of September, NEET takers' position in the merit list becomes clearer. NEET result has details of the marks obtained by a candidate. It also reflects the qualifying status of the candidate. Based on the result of NEET, NTA will prepare the merit list for 15 per cent  AIQ counselling. NTA also shares the details of the qualified candidates from each state with the respective authorities for 85 per cent state quota counselling.

What after NEET 2022: The Counselling Process

NEET counselling process can be a little confusing for its aspirants, which is why we have tried to explain things in simple language. The first thing that candidates need to understand is that the counselling is not conducted by NTA. The role of NTA is limited to conducting the examination and preparing the result of NEET. From here, various authorities come into the picture for conducting the admission process.

The next important thing that NEET 2022 aspirants must understand is the division of seats for the counselling process. So basically, there are three types of counselling, Central, State and AYUSH. Let us discuss the counselling types one by one.

Central or All India Quota (AIQ) Counselling:

All the Central and Deemed Universities such as AIIMS, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Banaras Hindu University (BHU) are included in this counselling process. Apart from these, 15 per cent of seats of all the government medical and dental colleges will also be filled through AIQ counselling. Candidates from all over the country can participate in this counselling process. AIQ counselling allows a candidate from Gujarat to take admission into a college located in Karnataka without having to present any Domicile or Residency Certificate.

The AIQ counselling is conducted by the MCC. Candidates who qualify for the examination can participate in the AIQ counselling by MCC. The exception to AIQ counselling is the state of Jammu and Kashmir, which has opted out of it. Thus, admissions to the colleges in the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be through the state quota counselling only.

All the seats of the Private Medical and Dental Colleges, located in a particular state, will also be under this counselling process. However, the state quota seats are reserved for the candidates domiciled in that particular state only. Candidates from any other state will not be eligible to participate in this counselling process.

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.
