A.What is the criteria for admission to the college for BAMS?
The BAMS entrance exams have been replaced by the NEET just recently. There is not actual cut off that we can rely on to give an educated guess. Based on the performance scores, a NEET score of around 350 should be good enough to get into BAMS provided other criteria are being met.
The eligibility criteria are
12th qualified with 50% science stream being mandatory (physicis, chemistry and biology). If you have studied and excelled in Sanskrit it is an added positive point. There will be some margin for reservation and differently abled applicants, so keep your options open with a list of 3-5 colleges based on your research and local knowledge.
B. Be prepared for the counseling advertisements and dates and the different rounds. Keep a lookout for the second round because, there would be some dropouts, some who change their choice etc and there would be a chance for you to get what you want.
C.Keep all the important documents handy when you are called for counseling.
