NEET Counselling 2022 Overview: Dates, Registration, Document Requirements

Neet Mock Test 2022

Counselling is one of the most important parts of a competitive exam, and when the exam is one of the largest entrance exams in the country, the process becomes all the more important. The NEET counselling is the juncture at which most of the students get confused and make mistakes. This is also the phase that is "make or break" apart from the exam duration.
NEET counselling is the process where the students choose and organize their college preferences. Then, the counselling authority goes through their choices and allocates them a seat keeping their rank in consideration.

MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, BVSc & AH, and BSc Nursing admissions will be conducted online by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) for NEET 2022. NTA will announce the counselling dates for NEET 2022 after the examination and result announcement. In addition, the state conducting authority will release the NEET state rank 2022.

The step-wise process for the Mop-Up counselling is also explained further in the article.

Frequently Asked Questions About NEET 2022 Counselling

Ques: When would the students need to furnish the documents?
Ans: The documents necessary for the counselling process come in handy when the students report to the allocated college. However, the student doesn't need them during the registration process.

Ques: What happens when the caste certificate is not available during the NEET counselling?
Ans: The authorities cancel the student's candidature under the caste reservation, and the student is considered a candidate in the general category. If his/her merit is up to the required mark, then a college is awarded.

Ques: What happens if the candidate doesn't lock the choices in the counselling form?
Ans: It is very important to lock the choices in the counselling form. If the candidate doesn't lock the choices in the counselling, then the platform does that for him/her on the counselling date.
