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. 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.

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.

Reservation System in Tamil Nadu Medical Admission - Explained

How does the reservation system works in Tamil Nadu, particularly with reference to medical college admissions?

Many candidates don't understand the logic behind the admission and get confused (me too, until I spent time to understand the intricacies of it).
