Analysis of MCC’s All India Quotas 1st Round Counselling:
Unlike last year, the MCC All India Quota Medical counselling has only released only one single list of all candidates who participated in the Round One counselling through NEET 2018, be it for All India Quota seats, Deemed and Central Seats, DU Internal Quota seats or ESIC seats, across both MBBS and BDS courses.
The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), on behalf of the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), All India Quota Medical counselling published a revised first round allotment result of NEET 2018 Counselling on June 23, 2018. The MCC also released the provisional allotment letters of all candidates on June 23. The allotment results for MBBS and BDS seats offered under All India Quota, under Insured Persons Quota in ESIC Institutions, under the Internal and Open Quota for Central Universities and for all Deemed Universities can be checked by all the candidates who qualified NEET. Only those candidates who participated in the first round of NEET 2018 counselling and were eligible on the basis of their NEET results have been allotted seats for now.
1. Candidates allotted seats in the first round can choose to join the seats and opt for up gradation to ensure they can participate in the second round.
2. Those who do not join will lose their seats and the same seats will be added for the second round counselling.
3. Candidates who registered for first round but were not allotted a college need not register again but should participate again with fresh choices in the second round.
4. Candidates allotted MBBS colleges but not joining can also participate again with fresh choices in the second round but won’t have their first allotted college.

7. In the Deemed and Central Universities list, the top ranks opted for seats at Kasturba Medical College, Manipal or Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore.
Lessons for 2nd Round Counselling:
• Only the first round will have free exit option where candidates can choose not to join their college. Candidates allotted a seat in the second round will lose their deposit amount (of Rs. 10,000 for AIQ and Central University seats and Rs. 2,00,000 for Deemed Universities) if they do not join their allotted seat, or lose their option to withdraw if they do join.
• All candidates who have qualified NEET are eligible for the AIQ seats in all rounds and will be considered for admissions until the seats are exhausted.
• Andhra Pradesh and Telangana candidates were also eligible and participated for All India Quota Medical counselling this year. Jammu and Kashmir candidates continue to remain ineligible for AIQ seats.
