NEET Seat Allotment 2020

The seat allotment process of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test is defined as assigning a seat to a particular college or university based on the student’s overall rank in the NEET UG examination. 

The number of available seats, as well as the student’s choice of the educational centre, plays a major role in booking a college seat from NEET. Based on a student’s rank and scoring, he or she can also get a fair chance to book seats for various colleges.
