Kerala is an Open state where 15% are All India seats in Private Medical Colleges, here candidates from across India can take admissions. The Non – Keralite candidates are under II Category. Before 2019 there was no Other State Quota in Private Medical College. In 2019 after the Supreme Court order 15% seats are made available for candidates from across India. There are 19 Private Medical Colleges having 2200 seats out of these on 333 seats candidates from other states can take admission. Due to low Tuition Fee many candidates prefer Kerala Medical Colleges than Karnataka. But there are candidates who prefer Karnataka as the education is quite good at the Karnataka Medical Colleges.
