The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science (RGUHS) will conduct the counselling process for admission to post graduate courses in Karnataka medical colleges on April 7.
Mired in legal challenges from students on the ambiguity of answer-keys, RGUHS announced the revised ranklist and answer-keys for the Post Graduate Entrance Test 2010 (PGET) on Thursday.
As per the High Court order given on March 29, RGUHS revised the key answers of the PGET 2010- Medical-General. Accordingly, the total number of questions and marks provided in the PGET 2010 stands restricted to 193 by the varsity. The OMR sheets will be evaluated for a total number of 193 questions and for 193 marks.
