Q:   What if I do not have my original documents with me at the time of joining the allotted college at the NEET counselling?

A:

Candidates who have been allotted seats at the end of a round of NEET counselling conducted by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) need to bring their original certificates at the time of reporting. Candidates who have deposited their original documents with any other Institute/College/University and come for admission with a certificate stating that "their original certificates are deposited with the Institute /College/University" will not be allowed to take admission in allotted Medical/Dental College. Hence, they must ensure that the original as well as the photocopies of the important documents are carried to the allotted institutes. In case of the documents, they must retrieve those, or request to issue a duplicate copy from the concerned authorities.

 

Q:   In case my documents or certificates are in a regional language, will it be acceptable at the time of NEET counselling institute reporting?

A:

According to Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), the authority for NEET counselling, certificates issued by the competent authority on standard format, should be in English or Hindi language. Some of the states insist for certificate in English language only. Candidates are advised to carry certified  (attested) Copy of English version of the original certificate, in case certificate
issued is in other than English language, along with original certificate.

Q:   What is the difference between NEET All India counselling and NEET state counselling?

A:

NEET counselling or the NEET UG All India counselling and the NEET state counselling process are conducted for the admission to MBBS, BDS, AYUSH and other courses. The NEET UG All India counselling is conducted by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) for the 15 per cent All India Quota (AIQ) seats. On the other hand, the state NEET counsellings are conducted by the State Authorities such as the Department of Medical Education (DME) for different states and Union Territories (UTs) for the 85 per cent State Quota (SQ) seats. The timeline and processes may vary for the NEET All India counselling and the state counselling for NEET. In general, there are three to four rounds for both counselling types. In the state counselling for NEET, the authorities release a merit list for registered eligible candidates. But MCC does not release merit list. The other steps involved in both counselling types are similar, including registration, choice filling, releasing of seat allotment and institute reporting. 

 

Q:   Can I participate in the state and all India counselling (NEET) simultaneously?

A:

Yes, medical aspirants can participate in the state as well as the All India NEET counselling processes simultaneously. In general, the dates of state and the All India NEET counselling rounds will be different. Before participating in either of the NEET counselling processes, candidates must ensure that they fulfill the eligibility criteria. For the State NEET counselling processes, candidates must belong to the domicile. Students not belonging to the state may also participate in the particular NEET state counselling, provided they register and participate from the NRI quota. Apart from that, other eligibility criteria are the same. 

Q:   Can I participate in the 3rd round of Assam NEET counselling after taking admission in the 2nd round?

A:

If you have already taken admission to the course and college allotted to you in the Assam NEET counselling 2023 Round 2, you will not be eligible to participate in the third round of the state counselling. However, if you have not reported to the allotted institute, or have exited the seat with forfeiture of the security deposit, or have applied for seat upgradation, then only you will be eligible to participate in the Assam NEET counselling Round 3. The Directorate of Medical Education (DME) Assam has concluded the first two rounds of Assam NEET counselling 2023 so far. The dates for the Round 3 counselling of Assam has been released by DME, which are scheduled between September 12 and September 21. In general, there are three rounds of counselling for the MBBS and BDS admission for Assam. Additional rounds such as mop-up round or spot counselling round is conducted based on the number of vacant seats after the stipulated rounds of counselling.

FAQs Regarding NEET Counselling 2023

Read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding NEET 2023 Counselling. 

Q:   If I opt to participate in second round of NEET UG counseling, will my allotted seat of first round be cancelled?

A:
In case candidates are not allotted any seat in the second round of the NEET UG counselling, the earlier allotted seat in Round 1 will be retained. However, on up-gradation of a seat in second round, the earlier allotted seat in Round 1 will automatically be cancelled and allotted to another candidate. Therefore, candidates are advised to fill in only higher choices or any other choice which they prefer over the earlier allotted seat, for second round.
 

Q:   After I join a college allotted during the Second Round of NEET UG Counseling, can I leave or resign the seat?

A:
Once a candidate joins second round seat allotted in the NEET UG counselling, he/she will not be allowed to vacate from the allotted second round seat. However if candidates are allotted a seat in Second Round and have not joined the college, then he/she can Exit with Forfeiture of security amount. Moreover, the candidates who have joined up to round 2 of AIQ or state quota will not be eligible to participate in the further rounds of AIQ or state quota.
 

Q:   If I get an up-graded seat during second round of NEET counselling, can I join that college directly?

A:
No, you will have to get online generated relieving letter from the earlier institute, before you join the next college. Without such relieving letter, candidates will not be permitted to join the seat allotted in round 2. Upgradation is applicable for only those candidates who have joined allotted seat of first round and submit willingness for upgradation.
 

Q:   Can I do the choice-filling process in round 2 of the NEET UG counselling if I've registered in round 1?

A:

Yes, you can do choice filling in round 2 of NEET UG counselling. MCC regulations state that you do not have to re-register if you already registered for Round 1. MCC will then release the lists of students who were assigned to medical and dental colleges for round 2. After this round, a fresh process for the mop-up round of NEET UG will be done by MCC. This process is the same for state NEET counselling too.

 

Q:   What will happen if I registered but didn't fill my choices in round 2 of NEET counselling?

A:

You won't be given a seat if you don't submit new selections throughout the choice-filling period for round 2 of NEET counseling. Any seat that has already been given to you will be kept.
Even if you didn't take part in the first round of NEET counseling, you can still take part in the second one. However, for round 2, you will need to submit new selections.
Prior to the commencement of round 2, registration is possible. Additionally, registration is possible prior to the Mop up Round beginning.
