 Does CMC Vellore come under NEET?

Yes, it comes under the NEET exam only. CMC used to have their own subject exam until 2015. Since NEET was introduced in 2016, CMC is using only NEET as the subject exam.

In 2016, they had aptitude test and interview for the candidates who qualified NEET.

Subsequently, the Supreme Court made it clear that private colleges have to admit students only through the state government; they cannot admit students on their own. CMC Vellore objected to this and boycotted the 2017 admission process (only one student was admitted through central pool quota).

However, in 2018, CMC agreed to be part of the single window counseling of Tamil Nadu state government and participated in the counseling.

All admissions happened only through the state government counseling process in 2018 (except one seat through central government allocation). No aptitude test and no interviews any more. Just NEET only.

  4. Should non sponsored students (open category ) also do 2 years service bond?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, everyone including open category candidates have to serve for 2 years. There are no exceptions.

      It is logical. Either you are sponsored or open category candidate, you pay the same fees. The fees is heavily subsidized by CMC. They subsidize the fees only with the expectation that you will serve them back for 2 years.

  5. I read in Quora that students who are sponsored by church have 2 year service bond but not for all https://www.quora.com/Do-all-students-who-got-admission-to-an-MBBS-at-CMC-Vellore-take-a-2-year-bond#

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is absolutely false information. Every candidate admitted to CMC Vellore has to sign the 2-year service bond. It does not matter whether they are open category candidates or sponsored candidates.

      The only difference is sponsored candidates know the place where they will be serving for 2 years. They go back to the sponsoring body to serve the 2 years. The open category candidates can be posted anywhere depending upon the requirements; but, most likely, they will serve at CMC Vellore hospital itself.

      Delete
    2. Sponsored candidates go back to sponsoring body to serve the two years??? What does this mean
      When iam sponsored by a church where should I serve the 2yrs bond. Please tell clearly sir!!!

      Delete
    3. Sponsorship entails an agreement between the candidate and the sponsoring body whereby the candidate agrees to serve in one of the institutions of the sponsoring body for a minimum period of two years.

      Most of these sponsoring bodies (Christian Church or Christian Organization or Christian Body which operates its own medical work) have an associated hospital. The sponsored candidates have to serve in those hospitals. If not, CMC Vellore will identify areas of need, where the candidates have to serve.

I'm a Muslim and am not from Tamil Nadu as well, so I wanted to know if I am eligible for the 12 seats in open category for students all over India?

    1. Yes, you are eligible for the open category seats (12 seats) in CMC Vellore. Tamil Nadu students do not have any reservation at CMC Vellore. So, it does not matter whether you are from Tamil Nadu or not.

      It is not necessary to apply to CMC separately. You need to only submit application to Tamil Nadu DME for management quota seats & participate in the counseling.

    2. My earlier comment needs to be corrected. CMC Vellore has called for a separate registration this year (2019); this is in addition to the registration with TN DME.

    3. The top two scorers in NEET, among the sponsored candidates, will get admission. In your example, candidates with 400 and 390 marks will secure admission.

      No further tests are being conducted. They used to have Bible test and interviews. But, those were discontinued. In 2018, admissions happened purely through performance in NEET.

      If I get an opportunity to study in such a prestigious institution and in return I have to serve for two years, I would take it any day. Don't forget that CMC Vellore is ranked consistently among the top three medical colleges in India.

    1. You have not mentioned whether the Christian organization is a member of the CMC Vellore Association. If they are eligible to sponsor candidates, then you are eligible to acquire seat under the sponsored category.

      The marks depend on the competition; whether the organization sponsors only you or more than one candidate. The cutoff for each diocese may be different. Some diocese may have a very high cut-off.

    1. Tamil Nadu DME will call for two applications, one for government quota seats and another one for management quota seats.

      You should apply under the management quota seats. All the 99 seats of CMC Vellore come under the management quota counseling only. If you have very good NEET score, you will get a chance to select CMC Vellore during the counseling.

    1. You have to get a good score in NEET 2019. You have to submit your application under the management quota seats, when DME calls for it. Attend the management quota counseling and choose CMC Vellore if seats are available when your turn comes up in the counseling.

      Last year cutoff for SC candidates was 389 marks. It is difficult to guess what would be the cutoff this year. We need to wait and see how difficult/ easier the exam is.

  18. Sir, What was the cut off for the student getting sponsored by Church of North India Synod for the year 2018? Also thanks a lot for all the information you've provided.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Two candidates were sponsored by The Church of North India Synod – The Synodical Board of Health services in 2018. Their NEET marks were 501 and 455 respectively.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the reply Sir. I request you to answer two more queries of mine:

      I am being sponsored by the CNI Synod for this year and as far as I know CNI Synod covers dioceses of many states under it but as you said there were only two candidates selected last year, so is there any particular cut off criteria (e.g. particular NEET marks) for different churches or are there fixed no. of seats for candidates from each church.

      Also, since I live in H.P., do they call all the sponsored candidates for the counselling at Vellore and select and reject them at that time? (also what's their selection criteria for the same) or Do they call candidates at Vellore only when it's confirmed that they are selected.

      (THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL THE HELP PROVIDED BY YOU SIR)

      Delete
    3. 1. The selection is not based on any particular cutoff. It is based on the number of seats (fixed) allocated to each diocese. Each sponsoring organization gets either one or two seats (maximum two seats for any organization). So, if you are among the top two candidates of CNI Synod, then you will get a seat.

      Some diocese will have very high cutoff; for example, the cutoff for CSI Madhya Kerala Diocese was as high as 576 marks in 2018. The cutoff for Church of North India, Nagpur Diocese was as low as 197 marks. So, it all depends on the competition within your diocese.

      2. My answer to your second question is based on what happened in 2018. Subsequent to NEET results, you also need to apply to Tamil Nadu state management quota seats counseling. TN will call for counseling of all management quota seats (including CMC Vellore). It will be held at Chennai. There will be one session, where you can attend if you want to be considered for the open category seats of CMC Vellore. There will be another session purely for sponsored candidates of CMC Vellore. CMC does not filter out the candidates earlier to the counseling. So, anyone who has the sponsorship letter can attend the session.

    1. I believe you are referring to the marks required for getting admission into CMC Vellore. Am I right?

      There is no separate quota for OBC candidates. So, you have to compete along with Open Category candidates only. If the exam difficulty level remains more or less same as in 2018, you need about 600+ marks to get a seat in CMC Vellore as an open category candidate.

      No, there is no other exam; only NEET score is considered for admission (assuming that nothing gets changed after the election results).

  38. As you mentioned in the beginning of this page that Sponsored category – 84 seats (includes 10 seats under institutional quota) and then at the end it has mentioned"UG college scholarship for Christians" there are only two seats under this category. I assume that these two are same coming under minority category sponsored by the institution. Am I right? Could you please explain the difference between these two?

    1. There are 74 seats reserved for sponsored candidates. Several Christian organizations sponsor candidates; CMC Vellore itself is considered as a sponsoring organization. While the other organizations sponsor 72 candidates, CMC Vellore sponsors two candidates under the title "UG College Scholarship for Christians".

      They also have 10 seats reserved for Institutional quota.

      Together, all these make up the 84 seats under sponsored category (72 seats sponsored by Christian organizations/ CMC network hospitals + 2 seats sponsored by CMC Vellore +10 seats under Institutional quota).

    Sir,
    I am a Roman Catholic. My daughter is expecting NEET score of 620. However she has not filled the CMC Vellore form. My queries are:
    1) Can she still apply for all India quota through TN state counselling?
    2) Can she still apply for 2 seats in UG Christian quota of CMC Vellore through TN state counselling?
    3) Can she apply for sponsored seats of CMC Vellore?
    4) Can she apply for 10 institutional quota seats of CMC Vellore?

    Sir, since the Bible test is done away with, can CMC Vellore extend the last date for application to after the NEET results are out and students know their score? In my humble opinion this would be a better and simpler process to avoid multiple unsuitable applications and would also facilitate students.

    I would be much obliged if you could provide me a detailed reply to my queries.

    1. First of all, congrats on the excellent score by your daughter.

      In my opinion, she can still apply to CMC Vellore through management quota seats counseling of Tamil Nadu. Since the centralized single-window counseling was introduced by Supreme Court, there was no need to apply to individual colleges. I am surprised why CMC Vellore went back to seeking separate applications this year. I am sure they cannot deny any one who comes through TN counseling, citing reasons that a separate application was not submitted.

      Stay calm. Gather all the necessary documents for the sponsorship category, if you are eligible. Ensure you submit the application to TN DME when they open the applications. You should be able to qualify for all the mentioned categories, except institutional quota and the UG Christian quota (these needs sponsorship by CMC itself).

      As you have mentioned, there is a possibility that CMC Vellore may reopen the applications again. Just keep a watch.

  42. Hello sir..my daughter has applied for admission in MBBS in cmc Vellore and has also appeared for neet this year..we are from West Bengal and we are Roman Catholics..we wish to get sponsorship from the member churches of cmc Vellore.. however we have visited the CNI churches in our city seeking sponsorship from them but we're denied as we are Roman catholics and not the members of their church..so what can be done in this case..plz help..is it the fact that Roman catholics can't get sponsorship from any member churches of cmc Vellore?

    1. Yes, I think the sponsors are mainly Christian churches and organizations belonging to the Protestant and Orthodox traditions. If you cannot find a sponsor, the only way is to approach CMC Vellore under the "UG college scholarship for Christians" category. However, there are only two seats under this category; so, the competition could be very high.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. do not need the eligibility certificate during the counseling. But, you need it during the admission process. CMC Vellore will not confirm your admission until you produce the eligibility certificate.

      The University needs to confirm that your qualification meets the University requirements to study MBBS. It is not only for non-Tamil Nadu students. Even Tamil Nadu students need to get the EC if they have not studied in the state board of TN.

      However, the process is simple. Don't worry too much about it. Go to the Guindy campus (in Chennai) of MGR Medical University with all your original certificates. Try to go early in the morning. If you are early, you can get the EC by the same evening. They have certain limit per day. So, if you are late, you can collect it the following day evening.

  56. Could you please share light in respect to the selection procedure at CMC. As I understand, the TN selection committee invites counselling based on registration / TN rank of candidates including CMC and candidates must produce proof of sponsorship (if under sponsored category). Once this stage is over, is there another round of counselling at CMC for sponsored category students. The question being asked coz there might be many candidates issued with sponsorship acceptance letter by various diocease or CMC and there are only 2 or 3 seats per diosease. How does the selection process happen at CMC side.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The selection happens at the Tamil Nadu counseling hall. You will be issued an allotment letter once you are selected (see a sample allotment letter in the above article). There will be no more selection process at CMC Vellore campus. You just need to finish the admission formalities, like submitting your original documents, signing the service bond, payment of any fees, etc.

      Within the diocese, the selection happens as per the NEET marks. The one with the highest NEET rank gets the offer first. No other criteria.

  58. Taking on the question from a candidate from West Bengal (previous post), this years prospectus has a section on seat classification titled "Category of seats" under section 13. Under this , option G is for minority seats of mgnt quota seats in self financing medical/dental colleges and I infer from the content that the annexures VIII a / VIII b could be applicable for candidates applying under this category.

    Option I is specifically for CMC vellore and I am assuming that the annexure might not be applicable there as you are going to produce proof of christian church sponsorship.

    Is my understanding correct on the instructions in this years guidelines?

    we are domicile of Kerala and will be applying to medical colleges in Kerala once the window opens for 85% seats in kerala KEAM. Alternatively we would also be looking at CMC application through Tamil Nadu counselling. Is there any rule / restriction that one cannot apply from two states. Both kerala selection rounds and Tamil Nadu selection for CMC could happen at the same time and if we just keep the CMC option and dont get it, we could miss out on kerala seats too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The scenario you have explained is absolutely fine. You can apply to state quota in Kerala and also apply to CMC Vellore. Since CMC Vellore seats are not considered as state quota seats in Tamil Nadu, there is no issue. All the seats in CMC Vellore are offered only under management quota counseling and is open to any one from all over India.

      The rule applies only to state quota/ government quota seats. If you are a domicile of Kerala, you are not allowed to apply to any other state under the state quota seats. CMC Vellore does not come under state quota/ government quota seats.

      So, go ahead. Wish you all the best!

    Do students who have studied outside Tamil Nadu have to apply and produce eligibility certificate at the time of TN counselling? If not then at what stage is this needed ie. immediately on allotment letter issued by TN counselling or after reporting to CMC to confirm admission formalities.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Candidates who have not studied under the Tamil Nadu State Board have to produce the eligibility certificate. You do not need the certificate at the time of counseling.

      You need the certificate before reporting to CMC Vellore to complete the admission formalities. Without the eligibility certificate, CMC will not complete your admission. So, it is better to go with the eligibility certificate to CMC Vellore.

      If you have time, you can even apply for the certificate before the start of counseling. Or, you can apply immediately after the counseling.

  63. Sir

    Why does different parish have different cutoff range and that too with so large variation? I would like to know as to what parameter does tamil nadu selection team follows to screen these variations?

    Do they screen top 100 scores or Ranks of CMC candidates and then allot top 16 candidates for open seats and next 84 candidates who have sponsorships? Or is it that they actually monitors the allotment to 2 seats per diosese .

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sponsored category and Open category are dealt with separately.

      You see a large variation because the competition is within the diocese and not across all diocese. Consider each diocese as a separate category and has only two seats. If I belong to Kerala diocese, I only compete with candidates that come from my own diocese. I am eligible only for those two seats. So, the cutoff for a diocese in Kerala is much higher compared to a diocese in the North East India.

      Open category has 15 seats (including 3 seats for SC/ ST). This is normal counseling, like any other college. Pure NEET score determines the seat. Nothing else.

    I havent really got the hang of the selection process. Having read all the discussion topic, does it mean that all who are in possession of sponsorship letter will be issued allotment letter irrespective the score if every zonal churches are treated as seperate category?

    Its a tricky situation here as a candidate like me who is from outside Tamil Nadu is divided in between the choice...CMC or my own state medical college. I have sponsorship acceptance confirmation from my church but not knowing if I would find seat in the selection committee is all the more uncertain. To top this, TN has not yet published the rank list , while my state is starting counselling soon. Its like neither here nor there situation.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, every sponsor is considered as a separate category. For example, if there are only two candidates sponsored by Emmanuel Hospital Association, then both will get the allotment letter. Only condition is they should have qualified NEET.

      CMC is among the best in the country. However, if there is a great college within your state, you may want to stick to it. It is a personal choice. Counseling for CMC is expected only around 16th to 18th July. So, you cannot wait for it. You should secure a seat in your state. Subsequently, you can attend TN counseling and if you get selected, then you can forego the other seat.

      You can also check with your diocese, whether they are sponsoring only two candidates. Or, they have issued letters to many who will be competing with each other for the two seats. If they have issued only two letters, then you are more or less assured of a seat in CMC.

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.
