I advise you to read the article completely to get the complete idea and in case if you have any queries, you can contact me personally at +91-7907887585.

Eligibility Criteria

Before explaining the admission procedures, I would like to let you know the basic eligibility criteria for taking MBBS direct admission.

  • The candidate must qualify NEET-UG entrance exam of the same academic year. The minimum qualification marks are 50 percentile for general and 40 percentile for other categories.
  • 50% marks in 10+2 PCB from any recognized board.
  • 50% marks in English separately in 12th standard.
  • The candidate must be at least 17 years old, before 31st December of the year of taking admission.

This is the basic eligibility criteria for taking direct MBBS admission.

If you meet the following eligibility criteria, then you can easily secure a medical seat in India or abroad.

Direct Admission Procedure

The admission procedure is a bit different for each state in India. Not exactly the admission procedure, I would say the counseling procedure is a bit different for each state.

But here I will be giving you a basic general idea about the counseling procedure and the steps involved in it. This procedure is mainly focused on covering information related to direct admission in MBBS through management quota.

Mainly there are 8 steps involved in the counseling procedures, which include the allotment confirmation. The steps are:

  • Registration.
  • Security Fee Payment.
  • Document Verification.
  • Round 1.
  • Round 2.
  • MOP-UP Round.
  • Stray Vacancy Round.
  • Allotment.

Step #1 – Registration

There are 2 types of private medical colleges in India – Private and Deemed medical colleges. If you are looking for direct admission to private medical colleges, then you must register for the counseling conducted by the respective state authority. If you need admission to deemed universities like Manipal, then you must register for the counseling conducted by MCC.

The registration fees will range from Rs.1000 to Rs.6000 depending on each state.

Step #2 – Security Fee Payment

After the registration, you have to pay a security fee which is refundable after your seat is allotted. If you are attending the MCC counseling then you have to pay Rs.2 lakhs as security. And if you are attending the state counseling, then it ranges from Rs.1 lakh to Rs.2 lakhs.

Even if you have not been allotted a medical seat, the amount will be refunded.

Step #3 – Document Verification

Now that your registration and security fee payment is done, the authorities will be verifying your documents. In most of the cases, the document verification will be done online, and in some states, it is conducted offline.

If the procedure is offline, then the candidate must be physically present at the verification center with all the original documents. Only after verifying your documents, you can attend the counseling.

Step #4 – Round One

After your document verification, you can log in to the government portal with the credentials provided and choose the college of your choice. After choosing the college, you have to lock the choice. The allotment will be done on the basis of NEET rank.

Step #5 – Round Two

Similar to Round One of the counseling, you have to log in to the portal and choose and lock the choice of college. If you have been allotted a seat in the first or second round, then you can download your allotment letter and report to the college.

If you were not able to secure a seat in the first two rounds then you can attend the next round, called as MOP-UP round.

Step #6 – MOP-UP Round

This round is conducted offline by most of the state authorities. However, the MCC conducts the MOP-UP round online completely depending on the NEET rank. Even in case, if you didn’t secure an MBBS seat in all these rounds, then you can attend the stray vacancy round.

Step #7 – Stray Vacancy Round

The leftover seats after all the rounds of counseling will be allotted in the stray vacancy round. There will be a very limited number of students attending this round, as this round is conducted at the last moment of the counseling session.

Step #8 – Allotment and Admission Order

If you were allotted seats in any of the above-mentioned rounds, then to confirm the admission you have to pay the first-year tuition fees and report to the college with all your original documents.

The procedure is also similar for BDS, if you are interested you can go through the detailed article about direct admission in BDS.

Things to Keep in Mind

There are a few things to keep in mind while attending the counseling procedures. These are just my personal tips from my experience and I would request you to just go through them.

  • Keep all your original documents handy. I will be listing the documents in the coming section.
  • Whenever you provide a mobile number and email ID, please check it is working fine. In case you forgot your password, then you can only reset it via an OTP.
  • Many students and parents think you can take direct admission to MBBS without attending counseling. It is not legally valid.
  • You have to keep your first-year fees ready with you. Once the seat is allotted you have to pay the fees in 2-3 working days.
  • Many people will call you and offer you seats even if you don’t qualify for NEET. It is not possible to take admission anywhere without qualifying for the NEET-UG entrance exam.

Direct Admission in MBBS Fees

The colleges can only charge the fees which are mentioned in the government counseling website. So you don’t have to worry about the extra fees.

But you have to keep in mind that, the colleges can charge a fee which is less than the government fixed fees.

There might be scenarios, where there might be some vacant seats and colleges might reduce the fees a bit.

There are many medical colleges in the country and the fee structure is different for different colleges. You can expect a tuition fee ranging from Rs.12 lakhs to Rs.25 lakhs depending on colleges and state.

Types of Extra Fees in a Medical College

You must understand that, apart from tuition fees the college also charges extra for the hostel, food, books, uniform, lab charges, etc. I know colleges that charge around Rs.5 lakhs as hostel fees per year. So before joining any college, do check about their extra fees too.

Tips to be Aware

Beware of people claiming very low fees: There are many people who claim to provide you direct admission in MBBS in the lowest fee structure. And many people fall for this when they hear they can get MBBS for 25 lakhs. They pay advance fees and fall in the trap.

Direct Admission in MBBS in Government College: There is another group of scammers who claim to provide you with direct MBBS admission in government colleges. You must be aware that all the admission procedures are done under centralized counseling by the government.

Should I Pay Any Donation?

More than 85% of the students and parents ask me this question. It is true that a few years back colleges used to charge hefty fees from students in the name of donations and developmental fees.

However, after the introduction of NEET and centralized counseling, the colleges have no option to collect donations. Now you might be thinking, then medical seats will be very cheap. No! There is not much difference in the fees.

Documents Required

The following documents must be provided during direct admission to MBBS.

  1. NEET Scorecard.
  2. NEET Admit Card.
  3. NEET Registration details.
  4. 12th marks card and pass certificate.
  5. 10th Marks card and pass certificate.
  6. Migration Certificate.
  7. Transfer Certificate.
  8. Conduct Certificate.
  9. Aadhar Card.
  10. Passport Size Photo – 10.
  11. Income Certificate, if applicable.
  12. Domicile Certificate, if applicable.
