The Medical Council Committee [MCC] has revised the NEET 2020 Counselling schedule. Earlier, the authorities have decided to commence the online registration process for counselling on 27th October. Now, it has been changed to 28th October 2020. Due to some technical glitches, the authorities have postponed the registration process. The applicants can now register for the NEET Counselling 2020 at the official website i.e., at mcc.nic.in.
The official notice released by the concerned officials reads, ‘It is for the information to all candidates that the NEET UG Counselling 2020 has been postponed till tomorrow i.e 28th October 2020 due to some technical reasons. The updated schedule will be displayed shortly on the MCC website.’ The NEET Counselling timetable has been disclosed for 15 percent All India Quota and seats offered by AIIMS, Central and Deemed Universities, and JIPMER institutes.
The NEET Counselling 2020 will be organized by the corresponding state authorities for the state quota seats. According to the latest revised schedule, the choice filling will be conducted from 28th October to 2nd November at 11.59 PM. The seat allocation procedure will be conducted till 4th November 2020. Further, the result will be disclosed on 5th November.
The candidates who prefer to select the seats allotted need to report to the assigned institute from 6th to 12th November 2020. After the counselling procedure, seats will be granted into various medical, dental, and allied fields. Based on the NEET Counselling, admission to JIPMER and AIIMS will be allotted to the students this year. Previously, the entrance gateway for the institutes has relied on separate entrance examinations.
MCC organizes the central counselling for 15 percent seats to MBBS, BDS colleges across the nation. On the other hand, the state-wise counselling sessions are conducted for the leftover seats. This year, children and spouses of terror attack victims will also get a reservation in BDS and MBBS admissions. The reserved seats will be from the central pool of seats for medical admissions.
MCC has decided that the previous eligibility criteria for 15 percent AIQ wherein the total number of candidates called for counseling were 5 times the available seats for allotment has been eliminated. All the contenders will be eligible until the exhaustion of seats. After the registration, the candidates will be permitted to choose their course and college of preference under choice filling. The concerned authorities will carry out the seat allocation process based on both merit and choice of the candidates.
The contenders who have scored at least 50 percentile are eligible to take part in the NEET 2020 Counselling. If a candidate allotted a seat in the 1st round and even if the candidate doesn’t report at the allotted college, he or she wouldn’t be penalized and will be eligible for the next rounds. As per the rules, after the 2nd round of counselling for AIQ seats, the candidates who take admission in AIQ seats shouldn’t be permitted to vacate the seats.
