Registration for NEET UG 2023 counselling is open now!
The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) for medical courses for undergraduates oversees this counselling process. This counselling includes 4 rounds – 1st round, 2nd round, mop-up and stray vacancy.
New registrations for NEET UG 2023 counselling are mandatory before round 1 by using the same phone number and email id as used in the NEET examination form. 15% of state college seats with national institutes and AIIMS are needed to get filled up in this first round.
MBBS candidates should check and match the rank-wise cut-off of last year of various colleges for choice filling, while choice locking will be conducted within 26th July. Results will be announced on 29th July.
After allotment of seats, students may get admission to colleges. However, if the allotted seat is unfavourable, then they can book the seat and apply for upgradation in 2nd round of counselling. Students, who failed to fetch seats in 1st round, may continue for 2nd round of counselling from 9th August. As per marks gained in the NEET examination, students can get seats within 18th August.
Seats locking and applying for upgradation is available in the mop-up round as well, which is from 31st August and choice locking is within 5th September. Basically, it is for seats from considered universities and vacant seats. Results will be announced within 8th September.
Usually, fewer amounts of seats are remaining after the mop-up round for the stray round. No new registrations can be conducted within this round. Candidates should get registered in either of the 3 rounds to get to the stray round. The process for the stray round will begin on 21st September followed by choice locking and choice filling.
Students should be careful regarding the applicability of various caste certificates in state-level and all India counselling due to reservations at various state as well as central levels.
