NEW DELHI: The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) has allowed candidates to upgrade from round 2 to round 3 of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) UG counselling 2023 and issued instructions for candidates.

“As approved by the competent authority, Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) of DGHS has provided benefit of Upgradation from Round-2 to Round-3 of UG Counselling for the academic year 2023,” MCC said in an official notice.

MCC issued the following instructions for candidates:

  • Round 1 candidates who did not get upgraded in round 2 and want to participate in round 3 will have to fill choices for upgradation since their willingness will be taken as ‘yes’ automatically.
  • Freshly allotted candidates of round 2 may fill choices for upgradation in round-3 by giving willingness as ‘yes’ at the time of reporting for round-2 seat at the allotted college
  • Round 1 and round 2 candidates who are satisfied with their allotted seats and do not want to get upgraded in round 3 may not fill fresh choices in round 3.
  • However, round 1 or round 2 candidates will have to remain in the system and should be holding their seat to fill choices in round 3. If a candidate has resigned the round 1 or round 2 seat, he or she will have to pay full fee again to participate in round 3.
  • Any round 2 candidate who wants to resign may exit with forfeiture before the choice-filling of round-3 starts. There will be no option of resignation after the start of choice filling of round-3.
  • If a candidate does not join the allotted seat of Round-2/ Round-3 there will be ‘Exit with Forfeiture’.
  • Candidates who have exited with forfeiture in round-3 will not be able to participate in stray vacancy rounds and any further rounds. Hence, ‘Exit with Forfeiture’ candidates of round-3 will be eliminated from counselling.
