Once the NEET Counselling process is done, the merit list will be announced by the College. The merit list of the number of qualified candidates will be purely based on the Institute’s cut-off.
During Assam NEET counselling, seats would be allocated in two ways. Both options will be determined by the candidate’s NEET score/percentile. Following that, priority would be provided based on the colleges selected by the candidate throughout the Assam NEET counselling form filling procedure.
Seat availability for MBBS and BDS programmes is determined by cut-offs and rankings. If MBBS and BDS seats are not available in Assam, students can enrol in alternative NEET Assam courses like BAMS, BHMS, BUMS BYMS, BSMS, and Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences.
