NEET 2017 : The Gujarat High Court has sought a reply on a petition challenging the government order that granted only students who studied class 10 and 12 within the state the eligibility to seek admission to medical courses in the state –  July 6, 2017.


Registration facility for counselling in Deemed Universities/Central Universities and ESIC (for wards of IP Insured persons), AFMC and states (85% + pvt. colleges) are going on or to be. Students have to keep an eye for the respective websites they opt to choose for admission.

Neet percentile on the Basis of Rank: If Sunita has secured Rank 5 in NEET and had 8,00,000 students appearing for the exam, then the percentile of Sunita would be [(800000-5)/800000] x 100 = 99.99998


WBJEE Board will take re-examination of 121 candidates of JENPAUH-2017 of Sripat Singh College, Jiagunj exam centre on July 16, 2017 (Sunday) at 12.00 noon due to the inconvenience caused at the examination centre during the scheduled examination held on May 28, 2017.

” …The verification process is likely to start from July 17 and the merit lists to be pub lished around July 21…”


Notification / Counselling Scheme 2017 – may be given within next 72 hours.

CBSE can not clear out number of Domicile students (UR / SC / ST /OBC/ PH). Thus state-rank-list preparation is not possible without taking information from the domicile students by further registration. WBMCC will publish the Notification / Counselling Scheme 2017.

02-07-2017  1-30 pm

Information regarding domicile, state OBC etc are not taken at the time of NEET online form fill-up, so correct/perfect state rank-list is not possible within three weeks.

Though any rank-list is published by the WBMCC in a hurry that will be the NEET All India Rank, just like the state-rank-list published by Punjab and no one will be able to understand clearly his/her actual position in state rank-list.

The existing problem is the information gap during NEET form fill up. As per state quota domicile norm, a candidate may be a domicile of maximum 3 states. But in NEET form fill up there was no such provision of state-quota domicile. CBSE has taken the domicile for 15% All India Quota seats only. And the list of students for 85% state quota seats made/sent by the CBSE is on the basis of domicile for 15% All India quota seats. That is not perfect in the sense of domicile of state.

Without taking information from the domicile students by further registration, perfect state rank-list publication is not possible.

All eligible students of Rainbow are asked to take opinion of Dr. A. K. Maity before filling their online application for 15% All India Quota Seats. Must phone from your Registered Phone No. to institute and contact sir only to the special number mailed to you before NEET 2017 Examination.

2. All India Quota MBBS & BDS counselling Form fill-up will be started from 3rd July onwards. This online form fill-up is very complicated in this time. Hence all eligible students of Rainbow are asked to take opinion of Dr. A. K. Maity before filling the online application.      

3. WB State Govt. is not reserving the 85% quota seats for state board students only like Tamil Nadu.

But this year it is expected that the rank-list for admission to medical will exceed the 2013 NEET cut-off in each category as Bengali paper was not fair.

CBSE will not publish further state merit-rank in this year.

Schedule for online counselling of All India Quota Seats has been given in  Online Registration Choice filling between 3rd-11th July, 2017.

Till now it is not sure that State will do further ranking of domicile students or fill the state quota seats from the All India Rank directly.

WBMCC will publish the states  admission procedure later.

Separate cases are going to be filed at the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India on different questions set for different languages and question paper leak in NEET 2017.

1. In NEET ACT 2016 it is mentioned uniform entrance examination to be held. But in NEET 2017 the act is violated by setting different questions in different languages.

2. In NEET 2017 information Bulletin it was mentioned that questions will be translated in different languages from one single question paper. The rule was not followed in NEET 2017.

3. The hardness or difficulty level of many questions may not be same. So NEET 2017 examination is totally illegal.

Observations of the Supreme Court, 27-02-2017

The Supreme Court, while hearing the MCI’s response on February 27, queried as to whether there existed any provision for upper age limit in the existing Acts governing NEET or whether any such amendment had been appropriately introduced. The MCI replied to the Bench that while they did not have any such provision currently, they were in the process of introducing it. The MCI also informed the Court that it had introduced the upper age limit based on the CBSE’s guidance. In response, while adjourning the matter to March 20, the Court had remarked that the MCI and other respondents needed to show substantial reasons and evidences in favour of their decision in the next hearing.

       OBC students are in chaotic situation

CBSE Board announces “The annual income/status of the parents of the applicant should be based on financial year ending March 31, 2017.”

This certificate is utmost necessary for OBC students who have matched with central OBC, before the NEET application fill up and the certificate issuing date must be before the date of form fill up.

But it is not possible to collect the annual income certificate 2 months earlier the financial year ending. So, many places the certificate issuing authority is unwilling to issue the OBC certificate as per Central list. Central OBC students are in problem.

During NEET application fill up, state OBC students non-matched with central OBC list, have to write them as UR category and for them, there will be up gradation of NEET qualifying marks from 40 percentile to 50 percentile like UR. Minimum required marks in Bio+Phys+Chem in 10+2 board exam will be 50% instead of 40%. So many of non-matched OBC students may not appear the NEET or may not qualify the NEET due to up gradation of eligibility criteria.

It may happen that, OBC students qualified as UR in NEET holds lower rank in All India Merit list. When the same OBC students will apply for 85% state quota seats in his/her domicile state, they will avail the OBC quota facility in state. So, there is chances of up gradation of state OBC merit-rank of the below merit rankers (all India) OBC students than better central OBC category students. A chaotic situation will arise.

               09/02/2017 , 1-30 am

OBC candidates are advised to go through the NEET 2017 Information Bulletin thoroughly before going to Application Fill-up.

All medical aspirants will get three shots to crack NEET /Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik protests curb on NEET attempts/Tamil Nadu, Bengal part ways over separate medical tests  Somdatta Basu  | TNN | Updated: Jan 31, 2017, ( right side scroll)

                  04/02/2017 , 2-25 pm

In NEET (UG) 2017 Notification it is mentioned :

“…..all other existing eligibility criteria for admission to Medical/Dental Colleges shall be applicable as per Rules and Policies of the state / UT / Institution / University concerned”

In NEET (UG) 2017 Information Bulletin (page no 20) it is mentioned :

“Merit List for seats other than 15% All India Quota

(a) CBSE will provide All India Rank. Result will be given to the DGHS, Ministry of Health and Family welfare, Govt of India to provide the same to the Admitting Authorities.

(b) Admitting Authorities will invite applications for Counselling and merit list shall be drawn based on All India Rank by the Admitting Authorities subject to their applicable rules.      ”

These notifications imply that

  • CBSE will not provide Merit List for 85% state quota seats like NEET 2013.

  • CBSE will provide only All India Rank list.

  • Respective states have to make their own merit list for admission to 85% quota seats from provided results of All India Rank list.

So, all other existing eligibility criteria (attempts, age, domicile, reservation etc) for admission to Medical/Dental Colleges shall be applicable as per Rules and Policies of the state / UT / Institution / University concerned, except NEET scores.

In WB, for 85% state quota seats there is neither upper age limit nor any limited number of attempts. So domicile to WB, candidates beyond 25 years of age can appear NEET for their state quota seats.

N.B. : For admission to AFMC, Pune the upper age limit is 22 years. So Candidates beyond 22 and within 25 years even they qualify NEET, will not be eligible for admission to AFMC due to Rules and Policies of the Institution concerned.

Comments :

  • “Upper age limit 25 years & no. of attempts 3” this rule is application only for 15% All India Quota Seats and not for 85% State Quota Seats.
