NEET MDS 2018 – Everything You Must Know About Counseling
Hi, friends! And again I welcome you to one of my exclusive post, this time it is regarding NEET MDS 2018. I know whoever reading this page is really tensed and curious to know the NEET MDS counseling procedures and how you can get an MDS seat easily through counseling.
First of all, I want you to know that like old days it is not possible to just pay and buy a seat. The government had come up with NEET. The main motto of NEET is to cut off the whole examination system and make a centralized one. One exam for all states of India.
Documents and other things to keep ready before counseling procedure starts:
These are not the ones mentioned on the official website of NEET. These are the things which will help you in counseling procedures, by my experience. Please ignore, if not interested. 😛
- Of course, all your original certificates including internship completion etc.
- Aadhar Card.
- Photographs, keep at least a dozen ready.
- You registered e-mail id, phone number, passwords etc: Last time during the counseling procedure of UP, one of the candidate didn’t even know which mobile number he gave. It was needed as they were sending an OTP to the registered mobile number. At last, after several emails and calls, it was changed by the UPNEET team.
- Category certificate, if you come under OBC/SC/ST or other.
- A bank account with facility for online transaction. I prefer you to go for SBI, as it is supported by all state examination authorities.
Read these carefully about NEET MDS 2018:
- There are two counseling types you should know. One is the 15% centralized counseling conducted by MCC and other is the 85% counseling conducted by different states. It may change, please be updated with that.
- You have to register with the states which you prefer differently to secure a seat there.
For Example: If you are from Kerala and also you are trying for a seat in a college in Karnataka. Then, you should register for counseling in both Karnataka and Kerala and attend both counselings.
- Counseling dates of different states might be different and even clash. So register with states carefully.
- For document verification, few state examination authority might as you to submit your documents to them. Please think twice.
The Counseling Procedure in Order:
- NEET Results
- Registration for Counseling for the preferred state by paying a small amount online.
- Document Verification: For some states, the candidate must be personally present there for the document verification. Few states don’t conduct document verification this stage.
- Counseling Dates will be announced.
- First Counseling – Choice Locking.
- First Counseling Results and Rank list.
- Confirm the first counseling allotted seat by paying a part of the fee to the examination authority in DD and take the allotment letter.

By my experience, I feel everyone can easily secure an MDS management seat if you go as per your plan. Last time I had provided management seat for orthodontics and endodontics for candidates having a rank around 10,000 through counseling.
Expected package for MDS admission through management quota will be surely around 15-20 Lakhs for major clinical departments, including your accommodation and food.
You will be able to secure an MDS seat easily if you are willing to register and participate in the counseling procedures conducted by different states. And please avoid waiting for the last moment to take admission directly. The high court has given official orders to take admission through counseling only.
