Do you know that Tamilnadu students who studied 10th and 12th in Tamilnadu has advantage over CBSE and other board Tamilnadu students. TN is one of the easiest state to get government college medical seat. Let me explain why?

What advantages Tamilnadu students have over other state students in India?

The first good thing about Tamilnadu is that it has more number of medical colleges and medical seats. If we compare the number of schools in TN, there are close to 7000 state board higher secondary schools which teaches biology and 270 CBSE schools that teaches biology. So if you study in CBSE board, the chances of getting government medical college seat is high because there are less number of CBSE students in Tamilnadu. Apart from these, Tamilnadu is the only state which reserves lot of seats for backward categories like BC, MBC and SC categories.

Who is eligible to get Tamil Nadu state quota medical seat in government medical colleges?

All students who belong to tamilnadu or studied from 8th to 12th in schools located in tamilnadu. If you studied in some other state but your permanent residence is tamilnadu, then you have to produce the nativity certificate to become eligible.

Government Medical Colleges in Tamilnadu

Tamilnadu has 25 government colleges run by the state government with close to 3250 government medical seats where the fees is just Rs 13600 per year because it is highly subsidized by the state government.
