Karnataka performs well in Comed-K

Bangalore, May 20, 2013, DHNS:

Students from Karnataka have excelled in post-graduate medical and dental entrance test conducted by the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges in Karnataka (Comed-K). Seven students from the State figured in the top10 of both streams.

Subha Ashok, who pursued her MBBS from KIMS, Hubli, secured the first rank in the medical entrance test. Speaking to Deccan Herald, she said: “I have not really decided as to what I will opt for as my specialisation. But it will be a toss-up between surgery and radiology.” Subha also appeared for the CET, AIMS and NEET. “I performed well in my KCET. I am hoping to get a seat in it. Otherwise, it will be through Comed-K. I am not so sure about my performance in the other exams,” she said.

Harish C of MS Ramaiah College expressed surprise at being placed third in the medical entrance test. “I never expected this, but I am glad at having done well. I want to specialise in orthopaedics and serve the rural areas by working there part-time.” He has also secured the 40th rank at an all-India level and was placed third at the state level in the NEET exams.

Other states


Jeswin James from Kerala secured the first rank in the dental exams. When asked how she felt about her rank, she said: “I’m shocked! I really did not expect this."

It was Jeswin's second attempt. In her first attempt, she been placed in the 451st position, and wrote the exam again because she did not get a seat in a college of her choice. She wants to specialise in orthodontics or conservative dentistry.

Vikas Sandilya is originally from Bihar but pursued his BDS from Manipal University, Bangalore. He said he was “very happy” about securing the second rank on his first attempt at the Comed-K dental exams. He wants to specialise in orthodontics.

For the dental stream, 5,032 candidates wrote the examination and 3,963 are now eligible for counselling.

As many as 518 of these candidates are from Karnataka. The consortium will hold counselling for the selected candidates on May 27 and 28.

The Comed-K announced its results for PGET-2013 on Monday, following the Supreme Court’s directions (on May 13) to announce the results of entrance exams apart from NEET.

This year, 13,681 students appeared for the post-graduate entrance test for medicine, out of whom 9,417 have been declared eligible for counselling. Among them, 2,534 are from Karnataka.
