BDS Course Counseling Procedures

Here I will just share the general counseling procedures involved in state counseling. For every state, separate counseling is conducted by the state examination authority.

Step 1: Registration

You must register for the counseling by paying a registration fee ranging from Rs.500 to Rs.2000. This differs in each state.

Step 2: Online Counseling Round 1

The candidate has to log in to the official website and choose the college where the candidate is interested. If you are not allotted a seat in the first counseling, you can attend the 2nd counseling.

Step 3: Online Counseling Round 2

The same procedure as in step 2 happens here. If the candidate cannot secure the 2nd round of counseling, then the candidate can appear in the third counseling round.

Step 4: Online Counseling Round 3

Before 2022, there were only three rounds of counseling, mop-up, and one last stray-vacancy round. However, the officials have added a third counseling round due to the increasing demand for dentistry. The procedure will be the same as Steps 2 and 3.

Step 5: Stray Vacancy MOP-UP Round

The stray vacancy round used to happen offline at a college level, and the college allotted the seats left at an increased price. However, starting in 2023, the stray vacancy round will also be taken online, and the MCC/State Government will allot the seats.
