Seats will be allotted to the candidates based on their NEET score, rank, colleges preferred during the online counselling and cutoff. If any seat remains vacant after the two rounds of AIQ counselling, it will be transferred to state quota.
AIQ counselling will be conducted by MCC and the all India merit list will be drawn for the same. For the state counselling, a state merit list will be created based on the candidates’ All India Rank (AIR).
