    NEET Rank Below 100000? These Colleges Will Still Give You MBBS Seat
    Synopsis

In the past, even candidates with all-India ranks – AIR – below one lakh in the NEET result have secured MBBS seats in over two dozen medical colleges across India. Here’s a list of deemed universities that admitted candidates with NEET ranks below 1 lakh and their annual fees. Counselling is through the centralised MCC NEET UG counselling.

    You may not get to study medicine at a top public institution but that doesn’t mean your dream of becoming a doctor is dead.

    As the only entrance exam for admission to undergraduate medical courses in the country, the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) is punishingly competitive. As per data shared by the exam conducting body, National Testing Agency, 15,44,275 candidates appeared for NEET last year, of whom 8,70,074 qualified the exam. To qualify, general category candidates have to score in the 50th percentile and candidates from the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes (SC, ST, OBC) have to score in the 40th percentile.

    Despite the competition, it is possible to secure an MBBS seat even with a NEET AIR rank below 1 lakh – 100000. Since the NEET cutoff percentiles are low, a large number of candidates qualify for around 1,72,808 seats in MBBS, BDS and allied disciplines. If the candidates have the resources to pay the fees of a private medical college, they still have a decent shot at getting into MBBS.

    NEET Result: Ranks, Colleges

    As soon as the NTA NEET result is announced and the test-takers know their ranks, they start looking for colleges where they are likely to be accepted for admission.

    Medical college aspirants who secure decent NEET scores shortlist the best colleges while those with relatively low marks out of 720 can lose hope and start considering other options such as taking a gap year, looking for ‘agents’ to get them admitted, or taking admission in allied courses. However, a look at the previous years’ NEET cut-off data, shows there are many deemed universities where students got MBBS admission with NEET ranks at 1 lakh or lower. While government seats – where government fee structures and reservation policy apply – might be out of reach, it is much easier to get into management quota seats in private institutions.

    In 2020, the last year for which there is complete NEET counselling data available, admission in the management quota seats of DY Patil Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, Pune, closed at 528019 NEET Rank; the corresponding NEET score out of 720 was 199. Similarly, the closing rank of SRM Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, Chennai was 320355.

    Based on an analysis of counselling data, a list of colleges admitting candidates with NEET Ranks below 1 lakh in MBBS is given below.

    In 2020, the NEET qualifying cutoff was 147 marks for the general category and 113 for reserved categories. The table above shows that even scoring 20-25% marks out of the total 720 can help you get admission in MBBS, provided you can afford the fees.

    MCC NEET Counselling For Deemed Universities

    Deemed-to-be universities are standalone educational institutions that are authorised to award degrees but weren’t set up through the enactment of any law, state or central, like a full-fledged university. For such institutions, medical counselling is centralised and conducted by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) a branch of the Directorate General of Health Services, under the ministry of health and family welfare. All NEET-qualified candidates are eligible to participate in the counselling process irrespective of the state to which they belong. In deemed universities, there is no reservation for SC, ST, OBC, persons with disability or economically weaker sections (EWS).
