Around 18 Lakh students have appeared in NEET UG Exam 2022 which was held on 17 July. Now many students like you would be clueless and thinking about what they should do until the declaration of the result.

Here we will discuss what you should do after the NEET 2022 exam.

Every candidate must develop an understanding of the selection procedure and you should be aware of the steps that will be taking place after the NEET 2022 exam.

Steps after NEET 2022

Answer keys

Just after some days, NTA releases the answer keys for the NEET Exam every year. Based on the answer keys, the candidates can evaluate how many questions they have attempted correctly. This step will help the candidates to make an estimation of their scores. Once they get an about their NEET score, they can take further steps on whether they will get a chance to appear in the counselling, which college they are expected to get into.

If the estimated score is very low, they can make their decision whether they want to take a drop or not.

If your estimated score is near about 200, you can consider the MBBS Abroad option and can save your precious years and money as well

Result Declaration

NTA releases the NEET Exam results after one month of the exam. Sometimes it may get delayed due to unpredictable reasons. The general category candidates must score the 50th percentile and the reserved category candidates must score 40th percentile in the exam. Candidates can appear in the NEET counselling 2022 if they score this percentile.

Cut off

After releasing the NEET 2022 result, the medical counselling committee and counselling conducting authorities of different states will publish the category-wise cut-off list. This cut-off will decide your rank and on that basis, you will get your desired colleges.

Merit List

The cut-off is different and the Merit list is far different from it. Based on the high score of the candidate, a merit list is prepared. All the government medical colleges and top-rated colleges seats are filled from this merit list.

Counselling process

The counselling is divided into two categories, one is AIQ (All Indian Quota) counselling and the second is state Quota Counselling.

AIQ Counselling

15% of total seats in MBBS and dental colleges are filled in this counselling process in which all the deemed universities, central universities like AIIMS, AMU and BHU will be filled through counselling.

State Quota Counselling process

The rest of the 85% of seats are filled in the state quota counselling process. It is conducted by different authorities of different states. The major difference in this counselling is that the candidates required a domicile certificate of that particular state. However, there are some private colleges which may prove to be an advantage to the students because they provide admission irrespective of the state.

MBBS abroad – Nothing but your Plan B

Every candidate should keep this step in their mind from the beginning. There would be many candidates who will get marks between 200 to 500. And there would be many aspirants who have attempted NEET a second or third time and still are not expecting that they would come into the merit.

In this situation MBBS abroad plays a crucial role. After the release of the Answer keys, if your estimated score is less that you can not get a seat in a government or good private college in India, then don’t waste your time and without any second thought, choose MBBS abroad.

Because it is very difficult to improve your score from 150 to 600 in a drop year and you would be well aware of the tuition and donation fee of private medical colleges. 


What to do after NEET exam 2022? This is a question of many students who appeared in the exam but they are clueless. This post will give them an idea about the things for which they can prepare themselves. If they are lacking in any document, they should start working to get it as soon as possible because not having any document may create problems during the counselling process.
