You’ve given your NEET UG exam and you must have already cross-checked your response in the OMR to the available answer keys.
By this time, You must have got a fair idea about your exam and fortunately, you must be confident that you’ll be joining a med school this year itself.
Obviously, You must be happy and euphoric, your joy knows no bounds.
However, there’s still one important crucial step left to complete before you can enjoy it fully.
That important step is filling up your college preferences.
From where you do your MBBS makes a little difference in your life. You’ll hear this being said repeatedly and it’s true. However, that shouldn’t stop you from trying to get into the best-med school possible right?
So, to help you with that, we’ve made your work easy. Below is the optimal college preference order that you must opt for while filling your preferences.
As a general rule of thumb, follow this order for applying for various colleges :
1) Central Institutions like PGI Chandigarh/Rohtak, AIIMS, BHU, JIPMER, etc.
[BHU is not exactly a central institution but we will keep it grouped in this cluster of Colleges anyway].
2) Second best option is to apply for colleges in big cities like the ones in Mumbai or Delhi eg. MAMC, VMMC, Seth GS, Topiwala National, etc.
The reason is that there is a ton of exposure to a wide variety of cases and the institutions are likely to have better investigative and treatment modalities than compared to other places.
3) Third in line comes state top institutes, for example, if you’re from UP you should try KGMC, RML, Kanpur, Prayagraj, etc.
4) Everything after that is more or less up for personal preference or as per convenience.
**It should be noted that several individuals would want you to opt for Tier 1 city colleges over colleges like AIIMS Patna or Rishikesh. Well, it’s up to you honestly.
Our reason for ordering AIIMS peripherals over the other colleges was based on the public perception of med schools. Many people don’t understand the intricacies of a med school and to them, the AIIMS tag is all that matters so if that is important for you then go for AIIMS, or else the Tier 1 city colleges are pretty good as well.
Hope this filing order will help you make the decision easier.
All the best!
