Important Part of Karnataka NEET Counselling 2023

Choice Filling

The most important part, choice filling, must be done carefully because the method used in Karnataka is considerably different. As, a student while filling the choices, can either rearrange or eliminate their college preference, but cannot add any further names. This makes the process somewhat difficult for students.

Thus, an expert with experience in this field can assist a medical student in making the right decision. With ten years of expertise helping medical students get admitted, team Get My University can help, one that you won't regret and for which you'll be grateful after you're admitted.

Choice after Allotment of Seat

Choice 1: If the student is happy with their allotment, they can choose option 1 and proceed by paying the required fees, providing the required documentation, downloading the admission order, and then reporting to the college. One must keep in mind that the student who received an allocation would then lose their eligibility for subsequent counselling sessions.

Choice 2: Choose Choice 2 if you were given the allotment but are still looking for other alternatives. Students may keep their round one seat and search for a better one in round two. Therefore, even if the student chooses Option 2, they will still be protected because they have the seat that was already assigned to them in first round.

Choice 3: The student will have to give up the seat they were given in Round 2 if they are still unsatisfied and want to take part in the subsequent round.  Additionally, the already-completed decision cannot be modified.

Choice 4: You can opt for this choice, if you have been allotted seat somewhere else and do not wants to participate in a further round of counselling.
