NEET Counselling 2022 is slated to be conducted once the NEET results are declared. The Medical Counselling Committee of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) for Undergraduate Medical Courses conducts NEET counselling in the online mode.
Counselling is one of the most important parts of a competitive exam, and when the exam is one of the largest entrance exams in the country, the process becomes all the more important. The NEET counselling is the juncture at which most of the students get confused and make mistakes. This is also the phase that is “make or break” apart from the exam duration.
NEET counselling is the process where the students choose and organize their college preferences. Then, the counselling authority goes through their choices and allocates them a seat keeping their rank in consideration.
MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, BVSc & AH, and BSc Nursing admissions will be conducted online by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) for NEET 2022. MCC will announce the counselling dates for NEET 2022 after the examination and result announcement. In addition, the state conducting authority will release the NEET state rank 2022.
Candidates appearing for NEET and preparing to take part in the AIQ NEET counselling must get themselves registered through the online mode. One must ensure that in order to appear for counselling, one has to clear the minimum percentile, the NEET cut-off to qualify for the counselling process. For this, the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has been deputed for 15% seats of the sum input from all the government colleges for all the candidates falling under AIQ (except for colleges of J&K state).
