Process of Seat Allotment for NEET Counselling
Unlike the previous years, the seat allotment this year will be through a centralized process. The points mentioned below summarize the important parts of the process that qualified students need to keep in mind.
- Candidates need to choose their preferred course/institute out of the ones offered in the list on the CEE website.
- Multiple options can be chosen as well (preferably in order of preference; most to least)
- Whichever choice matches the rank of the candidate will be allotted to them.
- After this process, candidates have to “freeze” their seats and complete the online admission process, including payment of the admission fee.
Completion of the above processes will result in the generation of a Provisional Admission Letter. Candidates are required to bring it with them when reporting to the allotted college on the scheduled date.
