if i get 400+ in neet which private college pr government college i m likely to get in m.p state ( state quota ) or all india quota

priyaankasarkar Student Expert 4th Jul, 2020

You haven't mentioned the Category you belong to. This is important because cut offs depend on this factor. Nevertheless, in India we have Government Medical Colleges, Private Medical Colleges and Deemed/Central Universities. 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, 100% Seats at Deemed and Central Universities, IP Quota seats in ESIC Colleges, Seats at AFMC, AIIMS and JIPMER are filled by DGHS. With 400 it is difficult for a seat in All India Counselling.  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. In 2019, the cut off for MP under State Quota for various Categories has been as follows:

General Category: 530

OBC: 524

SC: 409

ST: 289

So with 400 your chances for a seat in a GMC are difficult unless you belong to ST Category. 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 provided the Candidate has registered for the respective State Counselling and has not been able to secure a seat in the Counselling. This is where you might have a chance. Here the fees is usually nothing less than 40 lakhs. The last Category is NRI seats Category and you cannot apply for that. Overall, if you belong to Reserved Categories, you will need atleast 450 and it should be atleast 575 if you belong to General Category. To help you with your NEET preparation, we have NEET Knockout packages that you can check at: https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/. To help you during admission and counselling, we have https://www.careers360.com/mbbs-companion.

Thank you

if I made corrections in the neet application form then will I get email after the corrections are made?

priyaankasarkar Student Expert 4th Jul, 2020

No. Let's say you make changes in your NEET application form, now once you click on Final Submit, you will get a confirmation page. That is the proof that your request for corrections have been accepted and the changes have been made because that is the reason a correction window is made available in the first place. They will reflect on your application. Now these changes will reflect on your Admit card as well depending on the details that you have made changes to. But let's say for some reason the changes do not reflect on your admit card once you receive it, you need to immediately reach out to the helpdesk. And NTA will make a note of these changes that did not reflect and shall intimate you that these will show up on your NEET application form and then the counselling registration should you qualify in NEET. And you will be still allowed to appear for the exam. NTA will look into that. But truth be told, you making changes and they not reflecting on the application form are very minima. So do not worry about it. And if you are preparing for NEET, you may as well try our NEET Knockout package: https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/ .
