COMEDK PGET toughest of all entrance tests, say candidates

“The questions were not tricky but just straight and difficult. The questions could not be answered by just thinking and guessing but only through extensive preparedness,” said Dr Rahul Singh from Maharashtra. He has also written other entrance tests to ensure that he gets a MD seat.

Dr Kavitha Bekal Kripalani from Mumbai said that the All India Post Graduate Test (AIPGT) was easier compared to COMEDK test. “The questions were different requiring more analysis. Questions from previous years were not repeated compared to the national entrance test which had many questions from previous years making it relatively easy.”

Even she added that she was banking on other entrances like Maharashtra Common Entrance Test and AIPGT to get a MD seat.
