NEET-UG 2017 Cut-Off, Merit List, Total seats, Admission, Reservation and Counselling


Hello, are you guys ready for NEET-UG 2017? Well, you must be. In this post we will be giving you insight into the cut-off marks of NEET-UG 2016 and details about merit list, total available seats in MBBS/BDS Courses and admission process to get into a medical/dental college. As we all know from 2017 onwards National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test for Undergraduate (NEET-UG) will be only exam for MBBS/BDS Courses except for AIIMS and JIPMER, a relief from exams stress. Competition is tough, only the fittest will survive, last year overall 8,02,594 candidates registered for exam but only few thousand got into medical/dental colleges. Rules are really cool, 50th percentile is required to qualify NEET-UG, that means half of the candidates will qualify exam but not all will get seats. Why this kolaveri di !!! its all because seats are less and division of seats between Central Govt., State Govt. and Private Colleges. Continue reading below to know how you can get into medical/dental college.


How much mark should I score in NEET ?

Before we tell you how much mark you need to score, first see the cut-off table of NEET-UG 2016.

NEET All India Rank Cut-off 2016
CategoryMarks RangeQualifying CriteriaNo. of Candidates
General/Others685-14550th Percentile171329
OBC678-11840th Percentile175226
SC595-11840th Percentile47183
ST599-11840th Percentile15710
Others & PH474-13145th Percentile437
OBC & PH510-11840th Percentile597
SC & PH415-11840th Percentile143
ST & PH339-11840th Percentile36

From the above cut-off table its clear that half of the total candidates got qualified in NEET 2016. But not all of these qualified students got seat, why not, because there aren’t so many MBBS/BDS seats available. Do you think scoring 118 out of 720 and getting qualified will get you a seat, obviously not. Now, lets see the All India 15% Qouta (AIQ) seats cut-off:

NEET All India 15% Qouta Seats Cut-off 2016
CategoryMarks RangeNo. of Candidates
Others & PH466-214430
OBC & PH213-21010
SC & PH209-13075
ST & PH213-11823

From the above table its clear that there are 14,315 candidates who scored above 468 marks, these candidates must have got admission through AIQ or State quota. You know there are so many Govt. and Private colleges in India but not all colleges provide good facilities, even though private colleges costs a huge money. Everybody priority is Government college, so if you score above 450 out of 720, you will be in Govt. medical college.

Total MBBS/BDS seats available through NEET

There are about 426 medical colleges and 303 dental colleges under NEET-UG, most of them are private colleges. Total 53,455 MBBS seats are available in 426 medical colleges and 25,900 BDS seats in 303 dental colleges. So, overall 79,355 (MBBS+BDS) candidates will only get admission out of approx. 4 lakhs qualified candidates. Under 15% AIQ there are total 5698 (MBBS+BDS) seats, out of which nearly 4,000 seats are of MBBS.


How are admission done & is there any reservation policy ?

CBSE publishes result of NEET with mark in individual subject, total marks, percentile score, NEET all India rank and 15% AIQ rank. After that a separate state merit list is prepared by state on the basis of NEET all India rank. Admission to all medical/dental colleges are done the basis of these merit lists which are completely based on NEET score.
There are reservation of seats in AIQ seats and state quota seats. Reservation policy of state varies with state, read information bulletin of that state for detail. There are no reservation policy in private colleges except for some minority private colleges.

How counselling is done to fill these seats?

Although entrance exam is one but counselling is not one. After the publication on NEET result, counselling is done on the basis of merit list prepared by that competent authority/college. For admission under 15% All India Quota seats counselling is done by Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) on the basis of AIQ rank. Likewise, for admission under state quota seats you have to apply for your state quota seats on basis of domicile, thereafter a merit list will be prepared by state from NEET score and counselling will be done that basis. For admission into some deemed universities you can apply for that college separately and selection will be in order of NEET all India rank. Counselling are done in two or three rounds to fill seats which left vacant or transferred.
Here is the process of online allotment for 15% AIQ conducted by MCC:

  • a. Main Counseling Registration
  • b. Exercising of Choices, indicative seats and Locking of choices
  • c. Process of Seat Allotment – Round 1 (this is computer software process conducted by identified agency for MCC)
  • d. Round 1 Result Publication
  • e. Reporting at the allotted Medical/Dental College against 1st Round
  • f. Publication of net vacant seats
  • g. Fresh Choice Submission by eligible candidates for round 2
  • h. Process of Seat Allotment – Round 2
  • i. Round 2 Result Publication
  • j. Reporting at the Medical / Dental Colleges /Institutions against Round 2
  • k. END of 15 % All India Counselling
