The counselling for Tamil Nadu medical admission 2017 got under way on 24 Aug 2017 for special categories. It changed gears on 25 Aug 2017 by calling 1209 candidates for day 2 counselling.

As usual, Madras Medical College, Chennai was the top attraction for medical aspirants followed by Stanley Medical College, Chennai.

This article presents some findings from Day 2 counselling.

Expected Cut-off for Tamil Nadu MBBS admission 2017

Leave a Comment
I am getting lots of questions on the expected cut-off for Tamil Nadu MBBS admission 2017.

As you know, Supreme Court has made it clear that admissions to MBBS/ BDS can happen only with NEET marks as the criteria.

Accepting the reality, Tamil Nadu government has released two provisional merit lists; one for merit quota seats (government colleges and self-financing colleges) and another one for management quota seats.

We have, in total, 2445 2652 seats available in government medical colleges under Tamil Nadu state quota. There is an increase of about 127 seats this year, thanks to timely opening of a medical college in Pudukottai. We also have about 57 seats reverted (some reports put the number at 102) back to the state from All India Quota counselling unfilled seats.

Expected Cut-off for Tamil Nadu MBBS admission 2017

I did a quick check and few interesting facts. I have not considered the following in my estimation of cut-off ranks:

(1) Seats that are taken by special category students
(2) I have considered only 2445 2652 seats in government colleges and Annamalai University. I did not include ESIC KK Nagar. Annamalai University and the AIQ reverted seats
(3) I did not consider the seats taken in the All India Quota counselling by Tamil Nadu candidates

So, the cut-offs may come down slightly from what I am forecasting. However, below is my prediction for 2017:



These ranks may come down slightly as I have not considered ESIC KK Nagar, AIQ reverted seats and Annamalai University and candidates who have taken seat through All India counselling. So, I won't be surprised if the cut-off goes down slightly.

These are only my estimates, based on certain assumptions. It may or may not be the true reflection that could happen in the counselling hall.

Tamil Nadu MBBS Cut-off Ranks, 2016-17

Leave a Comment
Today, the rank list for MBBS admission in Tamil Nadu will be released.

The rank list can be downloaded from either tnhealth.org or tnmedicalselection.org.

The counselling is expected to commence from 24 Aug 2017 and might happen over the next week or so.

Here, I have compiled the cut-off ranks for the government colleges for 2016-17 session. You may use this as a reference/ guide for your decision making.

Tamil Nadu MBBS Cut-off Ranks, 2016-17

Just a small advice. Ignore the round 2 cut-offs as they may not be relevant. Last year, the gap between round 1 and round 2 was about three months. So, many candidates decided to stay with the colleges allocated in round 1 & did not bother to appear for round 2. The situation is completely different this year, as we may not even have round 2.
