300 Medical Seats For Non-TN Students
Tamil Nadu is now offering 300 medical seats for those students from outside Tamilnadu who wish to pursue Medical courses such as MBBS and BDS.

Most of the Private and deemed universities have ignored the NEET exam, as a result the Government has planned to make use of these results for admissions to those applying via All-India Quota. Moreover, this year NEET will replace the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) which is usually used for out-of-state students.

An official from the Health Department said "We will get the announcements from the centre in a couple of days. And, for students of Tamil Nadu, the regulations will remain the same."

He also added "It is just a change in nomenclature. The problem came up because NEET was seen as a replacement for all medical entrance exams in the country."

This year around 1,823 medical seats are available in the state. With the number of those scoring 100 in chemistry and biology increasing, experts say the cut-off marks for medical seats are bound to go up. To avoid putting CBSE and ISC students at a disadvantage, as their scores as not much as state boards, the state will 'normalize' their marks.

Of the 2,145 MBBS seats in Tamil Nadu government colleges, 322 are reserved for students from other states, the sources said.
