Students get, CET and go

Students get, CET and go

Counselling for admission to undergraduate professional courses through the Common Entrance Test (CET) began on Monday across seven cities in Karnataka. This year, counselling has been introduced in Belgaum and Chitradurga, in addition to counselling at Bangalore, Hubli, Gulbarga, Mangalore, and Shimoga.

Unlike in the past two years, counselling on the first day proceeded smoothly with no glitches.

The counselling was carried out in open rooms of the KEA building and the schedule was followed more or less to the dot.

The verification of documents was computerised and so was the system of allotment of seats to students in the various colleges.

Chetan, who ranked 365, said there was a slight confusion during the verification process.

Kiran Kumar, ranked 1302, who was allotted the Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, was part of the last batch of the counselling.

“The entire counselling was highly organised and I faced no problems at all,” he said.
Seated beside her father and awaiting for her documents to be verified, Aashritha, ranked 473, expected a seat in MS Ramaiah College in Bangalore.

“Although everything was smooth we were a bit delayed due to the felicitation programme for the toppers,” she said.

Sarah Thomas found that the seats in medicine had been exhausted long ago by the 798th rank for the general category.

She is now looking forward to the next round of counselling in August when more seats will be made available. In the meantime she is content with being allotted dentistry at Ramaiah College.

At the end of the day, medical seats in the general merit category were exhausted, while some seats were left in the reserved categories.

Toppers felicitated

On Monday, the top five rank holders in all the streams in the Common Entrance Test (CET) were felicitated.

Aditya P Goenkar of Vijaya Composite PU College, is the top ranker in engineering stream and has also secured rank 151 in JEE.

His first choice is IIT Chennai, and he plans to opt for Electronics, Engineering Physics or Electricals.

Ramya, the top ranker in Medical stream, opted for Bangalore Medical College.

“I always wanted to be a doctor, I am elated”. She was accompanied by her parents. “I am extremely happy and I am proud to have her as my daughter”, said her father, Dr S G Ramachandra.
