After the good show in higher secondary examinations, Thiruvananthapuram district has done well in the medical entrance too. The district has the maximum number of candidates in the rank list. Out of the 10,340 candidates who appeared for the exam 9,238 figured in the ranklist, which is the highest among all the districts. The district has 124 candidates who are placed among the top 1,000; behind Kozhikode which has 149 candidates among top 1,000. Bikas Keethadath, from Kaniyapuram emerged the district topper, securing 10th rank.
Bikas, who was a student of Our Lady of Mercy School, Puthukurichy, emerged successful in his second attempt. "I wanted to join medicine, so I took a second chance and also did not appear for the engineering entrance exam," he said. Mohammed SM (11th rank), who was a student of Loyola School in the city, has not made up his mind on whether to join a medical college in the state. "I am waiting for a few more results, including the All India Medical Entrance. I will decide only after those results are out," he told TOI. He said that he had expected to figure in the top 100 positions. "When I checked the answer key after the exam, I was confident to be in a good position in the rank list," he said. But another topper from the district, who also happened to be the topper among the SC candidates in the state, Devu Dilip, had no hesitation in answering when asked about her plans. "I would like to join the medical college here. I was expecting a good rank and with God's grace, I could do well," Devu, who bagged the 107th rank, said. A student of Holy Angels, she said that she was well supported by her parents and teachers. "All of them have called me after the results were announced and they are all happy," she said. Devu had no qualms about admitting that she became interested in medicine only after completing the 11th standard. "Initially, I wanted to join engineering. But ever since I began my preparation for the plus-two course, I felt that medicine was the right choice," she said.
