Entrance Mantra’s advise to Students –

  • Over the last few years India has been seeing a boom in career consultancies. Sensing an opportunity to earn without much effort, every Tom, Dick and Harry has become consultant. Most of the consultants don’t even know how to counsel a student.
  • Many of our followers receiving messages and call from fraud consultants regarding admission in medical colleges, so beware of such calls and messages.
  • According to Supreme Court guideline ,admission will be done only on the basis of NEET score.
  • Never handover the original documents to consultancies.
