Number of Medical Seats in Tamil Nadu

We noted in our previous article, Total number of medical seats in India, that Tamil Nadu has the third highest number of medical seats in India.

Number of Government Medical Colleges in Tamil Nadu

We also noted that Tamil Nadu has 23 government medical colleges, the most in India. Though Medical Council of India (MCI) shows 23 government medical colleges in its list, Tamil Nadu shows only 21 government medical colleges. Why is there a discrepancy between MCI and Tamil Nadu state records?

Two medical colleges, IRT Perundurai Medical College and ESIC Medical College, Chennai are considered as government medical colleges by MCI. However, Tamil Nadu state government does not treat them as government medical colleges. So, these two colleges do not contribute to the 15% All India Quota.

Number of Medical Seats in Tamil Nadu


Number of Medical Seats in Tamil Nadu
The following is the list of 21 government medical colleges in Tamil Nadu. Overall, they have 2750 MBBS seats. Out of these, 2318 seats come under the 85% state quota. Admission to these 2318 seats was already completed during the first counselling held by the state in the month of June 2016.

For those candidates who have appeared for NEET entrance examination, 412 seats are available through All India Quota. The detailed breakdown of seats for each medical college in Tamil Nadu is given below:

  1. Devastating the future of many youngsters, curse the decision makers to end up with 02 allotment. kindly do natural justice to our children.

    1. I am not sure what do you mean by 02 allotment. If you mean to indicate state quota and all India quota, this is nothing new. This is the practice followed all along. Its a way of bringing some diversity to the student community. It is also an opportunity for non-state board students from Tamil Nadu to seek admission in medical colleges (please note that Tamil Nadu has a normalization process that favours the state board students heavily in the state quota seats).

  2. May I know, how much marks is required in NEET to get medical seat in government medical colleges??

    ReplyDelete
  3. It was about 510+ marks for 15% All India Quota in 2016.

    For 85% state quota, this is the first time Tamil Nadu is using NEET scores for admission. So, it is difficult to predict. However, I believe a score in the range of 400-450 should be safe.

  9. sir can anyone participate in both aiq and state councelling,which councelling will held first state or aiq,

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There will be a separate cut-off for All India Quota. In 2016, it was 468 marks for general category. The number of candidates shortlisted for AIQ is equal to five times the number of AIQ seats available. Generally, candidates within the top 15000 ranks will qualify for AIQ.

      For state counselling, you are eligible as long as you qualify in NEET exam.

      AIQ counselling will be held first followed by state counselling.

      Last year, the first round of AIQ counselling was followed immediately by state counselling first round. Once state's first counselling completed, second counselling for AIQ was held. AIQ and state counselling was held alternately in states which used NEET for admission last year. The procedure for this year might be more or less the same.

    2. Yes, you can participate in both AIQ and state counselling.

    1. I think it would be tough for you to get merit quota in private colleges. However, since Tamil Nadu is using NEET for the first time, we have to wait and see.

      Generally, 65% of the seats in private colleges are allocated to state government to be filled as merit quota seats.

    1. Sorry, I do not have any such data for Tamil Nadu. There was no official data either released by MCI or by the State Director. Akshaya Kumar from Chennai, scored 615 marks. I am not sure whether he was the topper in Tamil Nadu, but probably he may be.

    2. I do not know where you got this information from. That is not correct. I am not sure about the 2nd rank. But, certainly there were candidates with marks more than 505.

    1. In 2016, 41% has qualified in NEET. That is really good news. Many toppers from Tamil Nadu might not even have appeared for NEET last year. Those who appeared may probably from non-state board students and students aiming at private medical colleges and deemed universities.

      Let us wait and see how our students have performed this year. Difficult to predict without any past data. I believe you should be able to get a seat, no doubt about that. Let us hope that you get a seat in private colleges within merit quota.

  13. another doubt sir,sorry for continuously asking something,will tn follow the same reservation policy for MBBS admission as previous years or it will be like open,obc(which includes both bc and mbc),sc and st.or just two unreserved and reserved(obc,sc,st)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Tamil Nadu will follow the same reservation policy as previous years for state quota seats (like BC, BCM, MBC, SC, SCA, ST). No change in reservation policy.

      For All India Quota, the central reservation policy applies. It includes only OBC, SC & ST.

    1. Your cut-off mark is irrelevant. Only NEET score is important. At 208 marks, you should be able to qualify in NEET exam. You can get a seat in deemed universities (or) management quota seats in private colleges.

    1. Let me clarify. I am making certain assumptions based on the feedback from NEET candidates. It may be right or wrong.

      In my opinion, it will be very difficult for you to get under merit quota in private medical colleges.

  29. Sir which residenceship is better to get govt MBBS seat through neet ,between Pondicherry or Tamil nadu

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The competition is more or less the same. Approximately, 3% of the total candidates secure a seat. Its more or less the same in both states.

      But, you have a clear advantage for JIPMER if you have Puducherry residence. Last year, the first ranked candidate from Puducherry had an all India rank of more than 1000. So, he had a clear edge over students from other states.

      Again, if you are looking at private colleges, Pondicherry has a better ratio of seats availability compared to candidates competing.

      So, as of now, it seems to me that Pondicherry residence is better than Tamil Nadu. It may change if more colleges open (like Pudukkottai & Karur in Tamil Nadu).

    1. No, 94 seats were reverted back to the state in 2016 after two rounds of All India Quota counselling. In 2016, the cut-off for AIQ counselling was 468 marks.

  33. sir, also what if a student had taken a seat from other states other than tamilnadu and if he take a seat from tn state quota the seats in aiq will get reverted to its state due to the 2 round councelling and this can affect someone.so doe it advisable to the aiq tn qualifiers to take whatever college may be it is top or tier 3 college from tn and if they want they can change from tier 3 to top in state quota by doing so lost of tn students may get some seats.i don't know how to type this but i just try i hope you understand and reply.i am searching all the way through the internet to get the detail of neet as i am a guy having 320 marks(bc) in neet i cant do anything with this as you know the pain of (may or may not you get a result) if i get very low marks or very high marks in neet i may be dejected or asssured of a seat respectively.ut this feeling of may or may not is just cant easily explained.when my parents ask me to study foraiims or jipmer i feel like nobody with a mark of 320 can pass those exams.

    1. I get what you mean. But, you cannot control how the top rankers behave. It depends where they want to study.

      The general trend in AIQ counselling is Tamil Nadu colleges are least preferred. So, don't worry too much about that. If Tamil Nadu top rankers prefer TN colleges, they will certainly get it. But, if they opt for MAMC in AIQ and MMC in state quota, then nobody can help it. They might occupy seats as you fear. But, these are all situations you cannot control. So, just relax and wait for the results and ranking.

    1. Sorry Madhuritha. I don't think you have any chance of getting into a government medical college. Even, the chances of getting into private medical colleges under merit quota is very low. You can expect to get a seat under management quota in private medical colleges or deemed universities.

    3. Don't be disappointed. Be hopeful. I am just giving you a forecast based on some estimation.

      For management quota in deemed universities, the annual fees vary from 15 lacs to 21 lacs. In private colleges, it may be slightly lesser.
