All India Registration for MBBS & BDS – Pointers and Tips.

Points to remember while doing the All India Registration for MBBS & BDS.

a) Read FAQs before registering. Most queries are answered there. It will help a lot.

b) Don’t skip Round 1 assuming you will anyways get a better seat in Round 2 (to avoid travel and logistics!!). 40% of seats did not move in Round 2 last year, and you would lose all such options in Round 2 in your range.

c) If possible register using a desktop, or a tab with a good internet connection. If you don’t have a good internet connection now, skip and register later or tomorrow.

d) Registering using a mobile is also possible though. But if there is a decent internet broadband connection chances of payment failing are less.

e) Early Morning – Maybe the best time to register, going by previous year candidates’ feedback. All systems – including the MCC portal and banking payments work smoothly.

f) Select AFMC while Registering if interested.

g) Once registered only for AIQ, you can’t change to deemed or AFMS later in Round 1 (note: In Round 1). So be clear about .what you want to register for in Round 1.

h) If you choose only Deemed, you pay 2 lakhs + 5000. If you choose Deemed + AIQ, you still pay the same 2 lakhs + 5000. Do not get confused. Both will have same impact in fees and in choices shown too. Last year, all candidates who choose only Deemed were shown AIQ options too. So does not matter.

i) Provide a mobile number and email ID that will be with you for the next 2 months. Any password change and other submission/change OTPs would be sent to these.

While registering, if there are errors in validation some of the common reasons are.

a) Don’t copy and paste anything from the admit card or application document. Type everything out. There may be spaces at the end when you copy.

b) Check for spaces in names, dots after initials, whether initials are first or last as in admit card.

c) Check for Spelling mistakes, caps lock, capital letters when typing (especially when you are using a mobile)

d) If the name is spelled wrong in the admit card (wrong when given during registration in NEET exam), you have to enter the wrong spelling during registration for verification. Don’t worry about the mistake now. Just register for now. Minor issue that can be managed later.

e) Remove commas, slash, hyphen, special characters from the address.

f) Select date of birth from the date picker (choosing year and month and date) as against typing it out.

g) Changing browser or device is the most common method that somehow seems to solve many errors.

h) Create a simple password that you can remember or one that you commonly use. Don’t overcomplicate. Password I believe is of the format Captain@7 with minimum one capital, one number and one character and 8 characters min. Try something similar and simple, if your commonly used password does not fit these criteria.

i) Don’t share the password.

Payment related queries while doing the All India Registration for MBBS & BDS.

a) Refund will be made to the same bank account or credit card that you use for paying. Refund will be credit back to your account within 3 months

b) Pay through net banking or debit card preferably. Net banking should not have a transaction limit.

c) If you are paying through a credit card, note that the amount will be back only as a credit and you may have to spend it, or withdraw it by paying processing fees.

d) More relevant for those who are paying Deemed fees. Using a relative’s or friend’s card would mean you have to depend on them for a refund.

e) Pay when you have proper internet connectivity. Still if your payment failed, but the amount is deducted from the bank, and registration is not complete, don’t worry. You may have to pay again. But the earlier failed transaction amount will be refunded, and refund can be initiated in the last week of March through the financial custodian/helpline. This is a known issue and happens for many, and MCC has a proper process for getting such refund.

All India Registration for MBBS & BDS – Other Common FAQs.

a) I want to register for AIQ in Round 1 and then change to Deemed in Round 2. Can I do that?

Ans: If you want to choose AIQ in round 1 and then wish to choose Deemed in Round 2, there is no option available through proper notification or rules. However, a registration reset option was available last year in round 2. The candidate could reset the Round 1 AIQ registration, and apply again as Deemed in round 2 and pay 2 lakhs + 5000 for Deemed. The Round 1 amount paid would be refunded later.

Three other major TIPS.

a) There is no advantage candidate carries if he/she registers first in All India counseling. In fact if someone registers without reading FAQs without taking time, there is a higher chance of mistakes being made. The person who waits and registers later, gets a chance to do it with utmost clarity, after looking at all issues faced by friends and others. Registration will be open for more than a week from now.

b) Remember that those who remain calm throughout the process will make better decisions throughout.

c) Seat matrix will be released only a day or two before choice filling. That is how it has been always. Wait for that.

All the Best!
