NEET Counselling Process for MBBS/BDS admissions

‘What after NEET’ aspect which confuses aspirants and parents the most related to the various counselling processes which begin after the result declarations. Numerous counselling authorities and application forms are bound to remind one of the pre-NEET admission scenario of medical education. Even when one understands the type of counselling’s and is aware of the number of seats, the different eligibility criteria come across as tough to comprehend. Let’s bring NEET MBBS/BDS admission process out of its ambiguities and clarify on ‘what after NEET’ in greater detail.

he Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) and various state counselling authorities will conduct the counselling of NEET 2018 after the declaration of the NEET 2018 result. The result of NEET 2018 held on May 6, will be declared by June 5, 2018. Candidates will need to register separately with different counselling authorities for participating in the NEET 2018 counselling process.
