  1. What are the chances of getting a pvt. medical college MBBS ( for General Category ) in 370

    1. You mean 370 marks in NEET 2016? It is difficult to predict as private colleges are considered under NEET for the first time.

      Moreover, it is still not very clear how the private colleges are going to admit students. Are they going to be under single window counselling through MCI or do we need to apply to each college separately? Is there going to be any control on the fee structure by MCI or is it left to the private colleges to fix their own fees? These are some of the questions that needs answers.

      However, I believe you should be able to get a private medical college if you could afford the fees.

  2. Sir, What will be the qualifying Mark for neet phase 2 ? Will it be the half of 720 or half of the Highest mark ?

    Btw I got 370 in neet. Can I expect a medical seat in private college ?

  3. Dear Dilip,

    The qualifying score is the marks scored at 50th percentile. In 2013, the qualifying marks at 50th percentile was only 98 marks. So, it should be around 100 marks this time too.

    Please read my reply for the previous comment on 370 marks. You have the chances t get into a private college. But, we need t wait to understand how private colleges are admitting students and their fee structure.

  4. Thanks for the previous answer :)
    Still got some queries :

    I belong to Andhra Pradesh where students have given Neet for the very first time.
    Now my question is do Pvt colleges follow local and non local category, like if I want to get a seat in Tamil Nadu or Karnataka should I get more than 370 😐 or those marks enough for getting a seat in other states, cuz even they gave Neet for the first time.

    Secondly, do we get results combined with Neet 1&2 or separately ?

    1. No, private colleges do not follow any domicile criteria for admission. Yes, you should be able to compete on equal terms in Tamil Nadu or Karnataka. It might be easy in Karnataka as they have the most number of private colleges in India.

      You will get a combined merit list for NEET phase 1 and NEET phase 2. There won't be any separate list.

  5. Sir my daughter is getting 470 in neet 2 2016 we have delhi quota and from general category is it possible to get govt colleges

    1. It would be difficult to get through 15% All India Quota, based on previous years data. For the 85% state quota, she may not get into the first round. We believe the first merit list for general category may not go below 496-516 marks. But, she may get a chance in further counsellings. She is certain to get into some good private colleges.

      Wishing you and your daughter all the best.

  6. Excellent and honest post. I found this much useful information, as to what I was exactly searching for medical counselling. Thanks for such post and please keep it up.

  7. It is a very advantageous post for me. I've enjoyed reading the post. It is very supportive and useful post. I would like to visit the post once more its valuable content. Thanks a lot for this beauty Enjoying article with me. I am appreciating it very much!

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.
