The registration for counselling which was to begin on October 27 will now begin on October 28. Candidates will have to apply at mcc.nic.in.

The process of seat allocation will take place till November 4 and the result will be declared on November 5.

Seats to medical, dental and allied fields will be granted after counselling. This year, admission to JIPMER and AIIMS will also be given based on NEET counselling. Earlier, the entrance gateway for the institutes was based on separate entrance exams. MCC conducts the central counselling for 15 per cent seats to MBBC, BDS colleges across India while state-wise counselling sessions are held for remaining seats.
This year, spouses and children of terror attack victims will also get reservation in MBBS and BDS admissions. The reserved seats will be from the central pool of seats for medical admissions.
It has been decided by MCC that the earlier eligibility criteria of 15 per cent AIQ wherein total candidates called for counselling were five times the number of seats available for allotment were (as being done previously) has been abolished. All candidates will be eligible till exhaustion of seats.
After registering themselves, students will be allowed to select their course and college of choice under choice filing. Seats will be alloted based on both merit and choice.
If a candidate allotted a seat in the first round and even if candidate does not report or join the allotted college he would not be penalised and will be eligible for subsequent rounds.
