New Delhi: After releasing the schedule for online special mop-up round counselling as per the reduced NEET SS 2021 cutoff, the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has released the speciality-wise seat matrix indicating the number of DM, MCh and DNB SS seats available across all institutes.
The special mop-up round for 930 remaining vacant seats is being held after the conduction of 2 rounds of AIQ Super speciality rounds following another additional round of Counselling. Medical Dialogues had raised the issue of vacant Super-specialty seats after the completion of all the rounds of NEET-SS 2021 Counselling due to high cut-off marks.
These seats are not only from branches that are least sought after but hundreds of seats belonging to coveted branches such as DM Cardiology (DMCD) and DNBSS Cardiology (DCRD) and those in the super-specializations of Neurology, Gastroenterology, Nephrology even oncology that is also lying vacant.
Blaming the high cut-off marks responsible for the wastage of hundreds of seats, the doctors had been writing to the authorities in this regard and praying for a lowering of the cut-off percentile and arranging a stray vacancy round for filling up the vacant seats.
Now, after several deliberations by the authorities, the National Board of Examinations (NBE) reduced the cut-off of NEET SS 2021 by the 15th percentile for 32 specialities.
With the NBE reducing the cutoff, the MCC had released the counselling schedule according to which registration, payment as well as the choice filling process begins from tomorrow i.e. 21st June.
