Step 2: Filling in choice for NEET counselling 2024 

As a part of the NEET counselling process, candidates are required to create a list of their preferred colleges by filling out a “dummy sheet.” They can choose their dream college choices and use the NEET college predictor tool to understand their likelihood of getting accepted based on past data. Once the candidates complete this step and move on to the NEET counselling process in 2024, they will have the opportunity to select from the list of choices they have created in their dummy sheet.

Step 3: NEET 2024 seat allotment

After the NEET counselling process, candidates should log in to the official website and download their seat allotment letters promptly when they are released. During the first round, candidates have the option to exit for free, but in the second round, they will have to forfeit a fee to withdraw their seat allotment.

Step 4: Reporting to the allotted college

After a candidate receives an allotment of seats, they are required to report to the designated college to complete the admissions process. It is not mandatory for candidates to report or join during the first round, but those who wish to take a seat or upgrade must do so. In the second round, candidates who have been allocated a seat must report and join, unless they choose to forfeit their security deposit by opting out. When reporting to the assigned college, candidates must bring original copies of specified documents.

NEET UG Counselling 2024 – what is the free exit? what is the exit with forfeiture?

The NEET counselling process offers two types of exit options for candidates.

  • Free exit (only for round 1): Candidates who are assigned a seat in round 1 but do not join or report to the college they are assigned to will not be penalized. The security deposit will not be forfeited, and candidates will still be eligible for further rounds.
  • Exit with forfeiture: If a candidate is offered a seat in round 2 but does not wish to take the seat, they can exit with forfeiture. This means they will lose the security deposit they have paid within the given period.
