Tamil Nadu NEET 2017 Counselling – State Quota Counselling for MBBS/BDS admissions in Govt, Private/ Self financed Colleges is all set to start from July 17. Tami Nadu has reserved 85% of total medical seats under the state quota for students who had pursued Class 12 education under the state board. “The move was to protect the interests of 4.2 lakh Tamil Nadu students who constitute over 90% of the total number of Class XII students, adding only 4,685 students were from the CBSE stream” said TN health minister. The state government has opposed NEET but is yet to receive the presidential assent for the two Bills passed by it in the assembly seeking exemption from common entrance test. Read below two cases carefully.
CASE I: If the Assent for the said Bill is received from His Excellency The President of India, before the date of declaration of merit list then the admission for the MBBS/BDS courses for the year 2017-2018 shall be made on basis of +2/Equivalent Board of
