2500 followers on Twitter


Just wanted to share this milestone. The twitter handle of justgetMBBS has 1000 followers as on 22 July 2017.

1000 Followers on Twitter

I started tweeting from June 2016. The journey started with myself seeking information on MBBS admission. But, it moved on and it has become a primary platform for exchange of information, forum for active discussions & a place where several queries get resolved.

I thank all the 1000+ members on this community. I will continue to provide genuine information, my honest opinions and wild guesses, in some cases.

I do NOT know everything

I want to clarify that I do NOT know everything about medical admissions. So, when I say "I don't know", don't ask me "why you don't know". I know something and I always share what I know. If I do not know something, I do not want to pretend that I know.

Its a combined effort and there are several experts who knows better than me. For example, I always look to Sandeep Gupta for information/ advice on issues related to Karnataka. Prof. Dr. Srikanth is a constant source of inspiration and encouragement and has a wealth of information. TM Sivakumar has shared several useful information, particularly on issues related to Tamil Nadu.

There are several other experts and I am happy that we all belong to one community connected on Twitter.

Give me some time to respond

I read almost all your tweets. So, don't keep posting "please reply" again and again. I try my level best to answer your queries at the earliest. But, sometimes, it may be delayed as I may have to collect the information to respond to you.

I also need some personal time. So, don't expect instant responses. Wait for few hours before posting "please reply" again. Hope you understand.

Keep contributing

My kind request to those who went through the ordeal this year. Don't close your Twitter account once you or your son/ daughter gets a medical seat. Stay back and share your experience, information gathered and tips to the candidates who will go through this in the following years.

Suggestions for improvement

I look forward to your comments and any suggestions for improvement. Thank you all once again.

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 NaduWe 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.

From 2013-2015, NO CBSE candidate was given MBBS admission in any government medical college in Tamil Nadu under the 85% state quota.
Do you think CBSE students are incompetent compared to Tamil Nadu State Board students? Are they not competent enough to join Tamil Nadu government medical colleges?

Please read through as I explain the difficulties faced by CBSE students in Tamil Nadu Professional Courses admission.


CBSE Students at a disadvantage? Times of India reported in May 2013 that CBSE students are on back foot. The report highlighted that even with very high scores, a CBSE student has little chance of getting a seat for a professional course in a good college in Tamil Nadu.

It is no secret that State boards are lavish in providing marks to their students. Times of Indi…
