Comed-K PGET tomorrow

Following an incident of malpractice in the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences Post Graduate Entrance Test (PGET) held recently, Comed-K has come up with stringent measures to deter malpractice during its entrance test for post graduate courses in medical and dental sciences.

As many as 18,418 candidates will write the test on Sunday and there has been a 11 per cent increase in the number of candidates appearing for the test this year. 

Speaking to the media on Friday, Comed-K chief executive A S Srikanth said cases of malpractice, if any, would be reported to the Medical Council of India and to the State Council. 

Stringent rulesRegistration certificate issued to the candidate will be withdrawn as per the rules under the Chapter VIII of the Indian Medical Council Regulations, 2002. The photograph of the candidate caught flouting the exam rules will be published on the websites of the Comed-K and medical colleges, seeking all examination authorities across the country to deny permission for the candidate from taking any entrance exam in future.  

Besides, jammers and portable metal detectors will be installed at all the exam centers.  The entrance test is being held at 27 centres in Bangalore. The question papers will be distributed in a manner that no candidates sitting next to each other get the same version of the question paper. 
ID proofs mandatoryCandidates have been asked to bring along a copy of birth certificate and ID proof submitted at the time of applying for the exam, a recent passport size colour photograph along with the admission tickets issued by the Comed-K.

Those appearing for the exam also have to bring any of the following photo ID proofs: PAN card, driving licence, running savings bank account passbook with photo, service identity card issued by the government, public sector undertakings, local bodies, public limited companies, with photographs. 

These IDs are valid for the exam only if issued before January 13, according to the Comed-K. Candidates can also provide voter’s ID card or photo ID issued by the institution last attended with the signature of the issuing authority across the photo of the candidate.

The Comed-K authorities said the candidates would not be allowed to write the exam if they do not bring the mandatory ID and photo proofs. 

Answer keysThe answer keys will be published on the Comed-K website within three hours of the exam. Last date for submitting objections for the key answers is February 16. 

The test scores will be published on February 22, and the last date for filing objections will be February 24. The final rank list will be out on the website by February 29, said Srikanth.
