  • You can fill any number of colleges.
  • Arrange your choices by moving them up/down, interchanging, or adding/deleting them.

Free Exit and Exit with Forfeiture in NEET Counselling:

Free Exit (only for Round 1)– The Free Exit option applies solely to Round 1 of NEET counselling. If a candidate is assigned a seat in Round 1 but chooses not to join the allotted college, they will not face any penalty. Their security deposit remains untouched, and they remain eligible to participate in subsequent rounds of counselling. This provides flexibility for candidates who are unsure about their initial allotment and wish to explore other options in later rounds.

Exit with forfeiture—If a candidate is given a seat in the second round but decides not to accept it, they can still exit with forfeiture (losing the deposited security amount) within the specified time.

Candidates who join the allocated seat in the second round won’t be allowed to resign or give up their seats. Additionally, they won’t be able to take part in state counselling.
