New candidates allotted seats through second round
The following insights can be obtained from the second seat allotment-
Out of all the candidates who registered for the counselling process, 12,679 candidates were allotted seats through the first round of counselling. For the first time, candidates who did not report at the allotted colleges were given chance to submit fresh choices in the second round. 5,875 candidates did not report to the allotted colleges and out of these candidates, 1,476 candidates were allotted fresh seats in the second round. The remaining 1,939 candidates did not fill fresh choices and 2,460 candidates were not allotted seats in the second round.
Out of the total candidates who reported at the allotted colleges for document verification, 3,068 candidates opted for participation in the second round for possible upgradation of seats. The highest rank to obtain a seat upgradation was AIR 29 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.
3,301 candidates did not opt for upgradation and preferred to join the colleges they were allotted in the first round.
The last unreserved rank allotted an MBBS seat under All India Quota after NEET first round seat allotment was 8281 at Tezpur Medical College, Tezpur. The seat was cancelled and made available for Round Two after the candidate did not report for admissions and did not submit fresh choices.
The last unreserved rank allotted an MBBS seat after NEET second round seat allotment is 10,443 at the Mizoram Institute of Medical Education and Research, Falkawn under 15% All India Quota.
The last unreserved rank to secure seats was 13,268 in government dental colleges after NEET 2018 Round 1 Seat Allotment (at Rajah Muthiah Dental College and Hospital, Annamalai) and 17,093 (at Rajah Muthiah Dental College, Annamalai) after NEET Round 2 Seat Allotment.
Out of the 4389 candidates who were allotted seats in the first round of counselling under 15% All India Quota, 2719 candidates vacated the seats. The percentage of candidates who have vacated the seats after the first round of counselling has come down slightly from 66% to 62%. The slight decrease in the percentage of candidates vacating AIQ seats could be that the counselling for all the seats available in Central Universities has been also conducted by MCC this year. The reason for candidates surrendering the AIQ seats is generally they get preferred seat through state counselling, with the top rank candidates opting for AIIMS or JIPMER.
The last unreserved rank to secure seats was 389971 (at Sri Lakshmi Narayana Institute of Medical Sciences, Puducherry) after Round 1 Seat Allotment under management quota while last unreserved rank to secure seats was 453885 (at Sri Lakshmi Narayana Institute of Medical Sciences, Puducherry).
MCC will conduct the mop-round of counselling only for Central and Deemed Universities seats. Candidates allotted seats in the second round of counselling will not be allowed to vacate seats. Once the document verification process is concluded on August 9, seats which have not been filled will be transferred to state quota.
