Manisha 22nd Feb, 2020

Hello medical aspirant

MCC will commence NEET counselling and seat allotment for MBBS and BDS seats under 15% All India Quota from June 19, 2020.

However state level counselling for 85% seats will be organized separately by the respective state authorities . Candidates appearing for NEET 2020 and clearing NEET cut off required by the RESPECTIVE COLLEGES can apply for admission in that college through counselling.

It means you can apply only for state counselling  of state from which you will appear for NEET 2020 and you will have to score marks equivalent to cut off  of  that college

Based on previous year's cutoff people with 530-540 were also worried about getting a college. So it is better to get atleast 570 to be sure to get a seat and above 600 to get a good seat.
Hope this helps.
