The success rate is very low in NEET due to the massive competition. Students who have qualified in NEET got low marks or failed to get through NEET 2018 should now focus on the next step of their career. Apart from the MBBS and BDS courses, there are many courses in the medical science stream. However Admissions to all Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) undergraduate courses across all states will be through NEET from 2018 onwards. Ministry of AYUSH issued two notifications, in the months of January and April, informing all State Governments that admissions to BAMS, BHMS, BUMS, BSMS and BNYS will be done through the NEET merit list only. 13 lakh aspirants who take NEET for undergraduate medical course every year, six lakh clear the exam for about 68,000 MBBS seats. The rest try for dental and Ayush (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy) courses.
There 3 major options are widely open for those students qualified in NEET and ranks low because of less marks on biology, physics and chemistry.
Option 1 –
Mop-up Quota Seats:
Mop up round is a round or a list basically that comes out after all the rounds are done. It is for filling all the vacant seats that have been left out after the rounds. Sometimes students leave their seats due to some reasons and the seats become vacant. So waiting for mop-up quota seats are the best options for low ranked candidates.
Candidates qualified in NEET with Low Score won’t be able to get any government medical college as low marks but can try for mopup quota seats in private and deemed medical colleges. This seats comes from 85% quota of the seats of MBBS is resolved by counselling through states, and the remaining seats are to be filled up by NRI quota. Since now, NEET also includes private colleges, those with lower scores can also secure seats. Because of the 85% state quota, private college and deemed colleges cut-offs may vary. But in all probability, a score of about 380 or above should get you a private/ deemed college, in most states.
Option 2 –
AYUSH Course seats:
Those who wish to get an admission to the BHMS, BAMS or BUMS course in an Indian institution, will need to register for NEET 2018 and appear in the national level exam. This implementation will also centralize almost all the entrance examinations for MBBS, BDS, MD, MS and MDS courses with the various AYUSH courses such as BHMS, BAMS and BUMS. Currently, there are around 36,000 seats available under the AYUSH colleges for the various UG courses. Students can check out the overall Seat Intake across India.

Abroad Medical Colleges:
There are many students qualified in NEET who don’t get seats in good colleges and according to budget because of low marks and low ranks. Some of those students will wait until mop-up round and other medical courses like AYUSH courses. But there are students intending to study undergraduate medical courses in foreign universities will have to take National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2018) who apply for MBBS courses in China, Russia and other countries. However the Medical Council of India (MCI) to make it mandatory to pass NEET to obtain an eligibility certificate (EC) to pursue courses in foreign medical colleges. Overseas citizens of India intending to obtain primary medical qualification abroad, on or after May 2018, also have to mandatorily pass NEET. This point has already been slightly touched upon in the first point under cost. One of the major doubts that Indian aspirants have in their mind is whether the colleges actually provide good quality of education. The answer is YES!
