NEET Seat Allotment - 2017

For the first time in TamilNadu, Medical Counseling will be based on NEET score. The ranked merit list has been published by Directorate of Medical Education (DME) today, the 23rd of Aug, 2017 after the Supreme Court order.

TN Health Ministry and DME together have announced that Medical Counseling will start from tomorrow, 24th August. On 24th Aug, Counseling will be for Sports Category, Ex-service men and Physically Challenged categories. Regular Counseling for NEET Qualified TN state students will start on 25th August. At this time, both Health Secretary and DME should announce to all students through the media on what documents to be brought, what alternate options the students have, if a specific document is missing, whether the medical seat will be rejected if a specific document is not there. For example, if the student is not able to get the Bonafide certificate from school due to holiday season, what arrangements have been made by TNMA to support them, is not clear.

Again, it was mentioned that counseling fee should be paid by Demand Draft only. But since 26th, 27th and 28th are bank holidays, what are the alternate options available to students and parents.

Thousands of TN students think MBBS is their life and taking their future into consideration , DME and Health Ministry should immediately arrange a Press Meet and inform in detail about the key mandatory documents that need to be brought for medical counseling so that they don't lose the medical seats after clearing NEET.

If we analyze the NEET ranked list from Tamil Nadu, we can deduce following facts.
