Publication of State Merit List

Based on applications received by it, the state authority will release a state merit list, which will be the basis of admission. The merit list will be prepared using NEET 2019 scores.

Generally, candidates who are ranked higher are assigned/ select government medical and dental colleges, as fees tend to be lower. That being said some may also take admission in private colleges instead of a government college because the private college is highly rated. For example, CMC Vellore is one of the premier medical colleges in the country, and therefore it would be not a surprise if a candidate prefers it over a government college.

Reporting at the assigned college

Once a college has been allotted to a candidate, s/he needs to report at the college within the given deadline to complete admission formalities. Or else the seat will be cancelled. At the time of reporting the candidate should bring with them all necessary documents, including NEET 2019 scorecard, NEET 2019 admit card and other prescribed documents.
