After the nod from Supreme Court, the counselling process for the NEET PG and UG will start soon. Students who have cleared the exams will be eligible to register themselves at the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) website. The counselling under the All India Quota (AIQ) is conducted centrally by MCC. The Union Minister of Health had earlier assured protesting doctors that the counselling will begin from January 6. With the SC verdict coming in favour of counselling today (Jan 7), the counselling will begin shortly at mcc.nic.in.
Medical counselling consists of a few parts. First, all eligible candidates will have to register themselves. After registrations, candidates will have to choose the college and course they wish to apply for. Based on choice and merit (marks obtained in NEET), students will be allocated colleges. In the first round, if a candidate gets a college/course of choice, they need to submit the fee and verify their documents to book a seat. If not, they can float the seat and wait for the next round. Vacant seats will be up for grabs in the next round. This year, MCC had announced to hold four counselling rounds.
