The Andhra Pradesh Health Minister, Kamineni Srinivas, requested the Centre today to reduce the qualifying scores for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test to Postgraduate Medical Courses (NEET-PG) in all categories to enable qualification of more students from the state. NEET-PG had been introduced in 2016 as the single window entrance examination providing admissions to MD, MS and PG Diploma medical courses across India.

Srinivas, who put forward his requests to JP Nadda, the Union Minster of Health and Family Welfare, said that the Minister had responded positively and assured him that the qualification marks for NEET-PG will be reduced. "The Union minister accepted my request in principle and assured a positive outcome. The move would help fill up vacant seats, including in non-clinical courses, in government colleges," Srinivas was quoted as saying. “Though only Andhra Pradesh made a representation, candidates from all the states in the country are benefiting. This will ensure that the PG seats in all the medical colleges in the State will get filled,” he added. The reduction in eligibility marks is expected to come into effect before the first counselling of NEET 2017.

The Andhra Pradesh Government’s demand comes days after Tamil Nadu had sought an exemption from NEET UG and PG arguing that it would be unfair on the economically weaker students hailing from rural areas to be able to clear such a rigorous national level exam without having access to quality coaching.

 

Andhra Pradesh had earlier been joined by the states of Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana in opting out of the 15% All India Quota seats for NEET UG and 50% All India Quota seats for NEET PG, meaning that students from these states could apply for admissions to the medical colleges of their own states only. With this latest request on NEET-PG being approved in principle by the Health Ministry, it now remains to be seen whether the reduction in cut off scores will be made applicable to NEET UG 2017 as well.

I am sorry but yes it will cause trouble in your admission procedure. According to neet if any mistake is found in the application form,your admission can be cancelled even if you are eligible. There is no way to correct it now. The only thing you can do is try to contact the examination committee and try to explain your point to them

What is the difference between institutional quota seats and management quota seats in Neet pg 2020 college prediction in state counselling

Koyel Bagchi 17th Feb, 2020

Hello,

Institutional quota means there are some seat capacity in every college which is filled in the badis of entrance exam ranks like NEET.

But after all this admission there are some students who can take admission by the direct entries and those candidates have the reservation.  This type of seat called as Management quota seats.

But always Institutional seats are preferred for the students.

Hope it will help you.

Than you.

hello sir, Is it compulsary that- Obc certificate should be a recent one for neet pg counselling??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

OBC Caste certificate is valid for life long and the OBC--NCL is valid usually for 1 year. So if you are planning on availing OBC benefits, you need to have the recent OBC-NCL certificate. If the current one that you have will expire anytime soon before the counselling, you should get a new one done.
