It is set for the purpose of All India Quota seat allotment and excludes applicants from Andhra Pradesh (AP) and Jammu & Kashmir. The candidates of Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir are not eligible to apply for the 15% All India Quota Counselling since these states had opted out of the All India Scheme right at the beginning.
NEET 2018 State Counselling
The counselling for admission under 85% state quota seats (except in Andhra Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana) will be conducted by the medical education department or an authority appointed by the state government. Note that according to a Supreme Court directive, counselling for private, central and deemed universities will be done along with the government colleges, which means, state will conduct a common centralized counselling for admissions to all colleges located in that particular state. Further, CBSE will conduct a state merit list for each state and Union territory (UT) and forward it to respective states.
The exam conducting authority, CBSE, will also prepare a merit list for participating medical colleges and forward it to concerned medical colleges for the counselling process. Allotment of MBBS and BDS seats in Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC), Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi will also be done by the respective medical colleges on the basis of NEET 2018 scores.
