Expected Cut-off for Tamil Nadu MBBS admission 2017

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.

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.
