As per the first NEET Seat Allotment 2017 list of AIQ seats, a total of 4018 candidates were allotted seats as per their preference and categories in Government medical colleges across the country. 2660 seats were left vacant after the reporting process at medical and dental colleges on the basis of this list was conducted between July 16 and July 22. These seats were made available for the second counselling round conducted between August 1 and 4. The admissions status of a total of 6664 candidates who were eligible for the 15% All India Quota seats was then determined through the combination of 2 rounds of counselling and seat allotment.
Given below is a brief analysis of the status of all candidates after the completion of the two counselling rounds.

The following insights can be gleaned:
Out of all the candidates who registered for All India Quota counselling, 4018 candidates were allotted seats through first round of seat allotment in Government Medical and Dental colleges. However, 2660 of these candidates did not report for admissions and had their seats cancelled. These candidates were therefore rendered ineligible for further admissions at the All India level.
Out of the remaining candidates who reported for document verification at their allotted medical colleges, 992 opted for participation in second round for possible upgradation of seats. The highest rank to obtain a seat upgradation was AIR 45 with the candidate obtaining a seat at Lady Hardinge Medical College after NEET Round 1 seat allotment but opting to move to Maulana Azad Medical College through NEET Round 2 seat allotment. Upgradation of candidates was dependent on factors like rank secured, options selected, seats available at selected college options and seats vacated after first round among others.
382 candidates did not opt for upgradation and preferred to join the colleges they were allotted in the first round.
380 candidates resigned from their seats after first round of seat allotment.
The last unreserved rank allotted a MBBS seat after NEET first round seat allotment was 5779 at Tezpur Medical College, Tezpur. The seat was cancelled and made available for Round Two after the candidate did not report for admissions.
The last unreserved rank allotted a MBBS seat after NEET second round seat allotment is 8317 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal.
For BDS, the last unreserved ranks to secure seats are 10920 after NEET 2017 Round 1 Seat Allotment (at North Bengal Dental College, Sushrutnagar) and 12419 (at Rajah Muthiah Dental Colleg, Annamalai) after NEET Round 2 Seat Allotment.
Considering that admissions to Government Medical colleges through All India Quota is much sought after, the fact that 66% of the students opted to vacate their allotted seats after NEET Round 1 Counselling is quite surprising especially when they won’t be allowed to participate in further rounds. The reasons could be that students may have secured their preferred seats through state quota counselling, with the top ranking students who vacated seats perhaps opting for AIIMS or JIPMER admissions. Students may have also obtained scholarship funded seats at their preferred deemed and central Universities as well.
Students who have been allotted seats through Round 2 of NEET 2017 Seat Allotment will not be allowed to vacate. Once the document verification process is concluded on August 16, seats which have not been filled will be transferred to state quota.
Analysis of MBBS and BDS AIQ seat allotment at Deemed and Central Universities
The brief analysis of MBBS and BDS AIQ seats at Deemed and Central Universities will soon be published by Careers360 as the second round seat allotment has been made available on August 11.
8801 MBBS and BDS seats were allotted through Round 1 of NEET 2017 Seat Allotment for Deemed and Central Universities, as declared by the MCC on July 14. More than 90% of the candidates allotted seats in Round 1, totalling 8278, vacated their seats while 841 candidates opted for participation in Round 2, conducted between August 1 and 4. The exorbitant fees charged by many deemed and private institutions is thought to be the reason behind this, though further clarity will emerge as the Round 2 seat allotment has been declared on August 11.
