A. As far as your admission to a private college goes, you need not worry because they would just want a pass in the NEET exams and not ranks.
BAMS, BHMS have just being included in the NEET for the first time, so the chances of getting a course would depend on the cut-off, the total number of candidates and the number of seats but we do not have previous numbers to compare
B. Anything around 350 is said to be a good score, so you would have a good chance. I would suggest keeping the options open. There is a huge amount of competition for medical and alternative medical branches and try for the national and state quota.
C. Most colleges have 85% of the seats for the state candidates and in that around 45% would be for general merit students. So, in short, you will be battling with the rest of general quota students (around for less than 50% of the seats that are to be allocated to Punjab.
D. Counseling would be in three stages. Once you register for the first stage, then you need not register, but remember to choose the 'CHOICE FOR UPGRADATION' in the subsequent rounds. This would enable you to be eligible for changing the college if you get a better offer in the further counseling sessions.
The first round of counseling would have many who would change their choices and hence there would be a good number of seats in the second round. First round is in July, second round in 1st week of August
