Of the 5,508 medical seats, 4,446 seats are reserved for Gujarat students, 617 seats under the NRI student quota, and 235 seats under the management quota. There are 210 seats for the all-India quota.

AC-PUGMEC sources said the pandemic year gave students enough time to prepare for NEET exams. “NEET exams were held in September, instead of May which gave students enough time. Moreover, the exam was easy compared to previous years.”
