hello sir..I got 15145 rank in OBC category in neet pg mds 2020..any chance in govt. college?

Ruchika Chauhan Expert 25th Jan, 2020


According to your NEET MDS overall rank, chances are less to get a seat in government colleges through All India Quota. Chances are also less in central universities. You can get admission through management quota in deemed universities. Check your chances through the NEET MDS College Predictor tool

Good Luck!

There is an option to get non clinical subjects in a government college. You may get many clinical subjects like psychiatry, general surgery in government colleges as well.
According to previous years cutoff you may not get an All India seat but apply for state seats and attend all rounds of counselling.
