how do we apply for the colleges out of our home state after the neet result?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 25th Feb, 2020

Private Medical Colleges do not participate in All India Counselling and the seats are filled through State Counselling alone. And for appearing for State Counselling you need to hold the domicile of that particular State. Or else the only other option is through Management Quota. Under All India Quota, All the 15% of All India Quota Seats except for Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, 100% Seats at Deemed and Central Universities, IP Quota seats in ESIC Colleges, Seats at AFMC are filled by DGHS. The 85% State Quota and Private Colleges are filled by the respective State Authorities. And there are 3 Categories in Private Medical Colleges. Category A is the Government Quota Seats. And only candidates of the home State are eligible to apply for these seats. B Category seats are also called Management Quota Seats and they are filled through State Counselling and the remaining seats are filled through direct Admissions by contacting the College directly. Here the fees is usually nothing less than 40 lakhs. The last Category is NRI seats Category and you cannot apply for that.


is there any change in question paper difficulty level due to combining AIIMS and jipmer with neet??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 25th Feb, 2020

Muthu, JIPMER and AIIMS are one of the best Institutions that we have in India. But that shouldnt change the NEET pattern or difficulty of the exam. The difficulty of the exam more or less depends on the level of your preparation. If you are looking for NEET preparatory material, you can check our NEET knock out package at: https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/ . It is more or less about the cut offs.
