However, the actual cutoff will depend on a number of factors, including the difficulty of the Exam, the number of candidates who take the Exam, and the number of seats available in medical and dental colleges.


NEET Counselling 2024

The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) oversees the NEET 2024 counselling process, which allocates seats based on scores. For 15% of All India Quota (AIQ) seats in government colleges and all seats in deemed/central universities, AIIMS, JIPMER, ESIC, and AFMS, MCC handles counselling. State NEET counselling authorities manage the remaining 85% state quota seats.


NEET AIQ counselling 2024 encompasses four rounds: rounds 1, 2, mop-up, and stray vacancies. Seat allocation considers applicants' choices, NEET 2024 rank, seat availability, and reservations. The process involves NEET Registration 2024, course selection, and fee payment.


Those eligible for NEET 2024 All India Quota can partake in the NEET counselling. Unfilled seats from AIQ counselling's second round will revert to states.


AIQ for NEET Counselling 2024 Covers:

  • 15% MBBS/BDS Seats of States

  • 100% MBBS/BDS Seats of BHU

  • 100% MBBS Seats of AIIMS across India

  • All India Quota of JIPMER (Puducherry/Karaikal)

  • All India Quota seats of AMU/DU/VMMC/ABVIMS

  • All India Quota Seats of Faculty of Dentistry (Jamia Millia Islamia)

  • All India Quota Seats of ESIC


Why Can't the NEET UG Exam Be Held Twice? NMC's (National Medical Commission) Response

The National Medical Commission has clarified that conducting the NEET UG Exam twice a year is not feasible. This is primarily because all the available MBBS seats get occupied during the counseling process. The NMC's response comes in reply to a request from the All India Student Union, a student organization that proposed having the NEET UG Exam twice annually.


The NMC emphasized that organizing the NEET UG Exam demands substantial resources, and conducting it twice would place an excessive financial burden on the government. Meanwhile, the NMC has recently withdrawn the Graduate Medical Education Regulations 2024. It has also soUGht input from stakeholders regarding revised regulations for the Competency-Based Medical Education Curriculum, Minimum Standard Conditions for establishing new medical colleges or enhancing MBBS course seats, and maintaining standards of medical education in 2024.


Will, the NEET 2024 Examination be Conducted by the NTA or NMC? 

The NTA (National Testing Agency) is the designated testing agency responsible for conducting the NEET 2024 Examination. On the other hand, the NMC (National Medical Commission) is expected to handle NEET counselling starting from 2024. Additionally, the NMC has the authority to change NEET Eligibility Criteria 2024, admission rules, and other related aspects.


The NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is a common medical entrance Examination held annually in May. It is conducted in pen-paper mode and is the basis for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in various medical colleges nationwide, including AIIMS and JIPMER.
