In the medical/dental stream, 14 rank holders out of the first 100 and 115 out of the first 1,000 rank holders are from Karnataka. As many as eight Karnataka candidates have secured 165 and above marks (out of 180) in the entrance test for medical and dental courses.

For engineering, 76 candidates in the first 100 ranks and 587 in the first 1,000 ranks are from the State.

 Out of 21,300 Karnataka candidates who are eligible for the seat selection process of ComedK, 9,600 (45 per cent) are from Bengaluru Urban district alone, according to an official statement released by ComedK.

 Both his parents are doctors. His father is a neurosurgeon and mother an anaesthetist. His paternal grandfather too was a surgeon, the student told Deccan Herald. Lath hopes to secure a seat at the Christian Medical College, Vellore.

“The satisfaction my parents get from their work is my source of inspiration. I have received a call for interview from CMC, Vellore. I have written the CMC, Vellore, CMC, Ludhiana, AIPMT, JIPMER and the entrance tests in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh,” he said. M Prashant, a student of Sri Chaitanya PU College, who has secured Rank 3 in the engineering stream is awaiting more results.
