Where NEET Score Is Accepted

The NEET scorecard can be downloaded from the official website. After that, students who got on the merit list can think about the 15% All India Quota seats available in government medical and dental colleges in all states and Union Territories of India. The 85% quota seats are reserved for the state. If you failed to get the All India Quota, you can plan for the state's share.

Students can also use the NEET 2018 scorecard for an admission to all the private and deemed medical colleges spread across the country such as CMC Vellore. One can also start applying for the MBBS and BDS seats in Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC), Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and others.

Know About The Counselling Procedure

After the NEET 2018 result, the online counselling will take place which is conducted by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on behalf of the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC).
