The first list of students who have got seats in Maharashtra’s government and private medical and dental colleges is out.

The Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) released the first combined seat allotment list on Tuesday morning. This is the second seat allotment list released by DMER, but the first combined list for public and private institutes.

“Since we will only conduct two rounds of admission, this list released today will be considered the first round. However, those who were placed in government institutes in the previous list and are happy with the same can retain their seats,” said Dr Pravin Shingare, director, DMER.

In the seat allotment list released on July 28 for only the state quota seats in government-run institues, 2,450 students’ names had appeared in the list. Of these 2,100 students were allotted sets as per their top two preferences, DMER officials said.

“We are assuming these students are happy with their allotment because they have got an institute which was their top preference. For everyone else, the combined list will be an upgradation of sorts and they are allowed to withdraw admissions from institutes where they have already confirmed their seat and instead opt for the seat as per today’s list, which will be higher on their preference list,” said Shingare. He added the combined list draws names of 6,000 students, not only opting for medical and dental but also for other health science courses including ayurveda, nursing, etc.

Students whose names appear in this list have time up to 3pm on August 5 to confirm their admission. The next and last list will be announced shortly after that, DMER officials said.
