The Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) revealed that 4,500 seats are available for undergraduate medical and dental admissions in the state this year at government and private medical institutes.

“Results for National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) will be announced on June 5, and within two days we will announce admissions schedule for the state conducted Common Admission Process (CAP),” said Dr Pravin Shingare director of DMER.

As per information shared by DMER with the state Common Entrance Test (CET) Cell, there are 3,000 medical and 250 dental seats in government institutes and 1,500 medical and 850 dental seats in private institutes across Maharashtra.

“Medical Council of India (MCI) recently approved 100 seats for the state under government quota. But a few private institutes have cut down their seats so the total number is almost similar to the last year,” added Shingare.

MBBS and BDS aspirants in the state are worried about the results at present. Earlier this month, CBSE released the answer key and Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheets along with students’ marked answers for NEET-UG. Students pointed out at some questions had more than one possible correct answer and decided to challenge the board.

“Admissions depends on NEET results and we hope the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is lenient with assessment and accepts the challenges filed by students,” said Aniket Bhatia, a medical aspirant.
