Entrance examination for PG medical and dental courses is scheduled to be held tomorrow.
Consortium of Medical Dental and Engineering Colleges
of Karnataka (COMED-K) will introduce strict monitoring measures to prevent malpractice
during the entrance examination for post graduate medical and dental courses scheduled
to be held on 12th Sunday. It will publish photos and details of candidates involved
in malpractice at COMED-K and college websites and request authorities concerned
across the country to ban such candidates. “We will also request Medical Council
of India (MCI) and state councils to invoke chapter 8 of Indian Medical Council
(professional conducts, etiquette and ethics) regulations, so that the certificate
issued to the candidate is either withdrawn or annulled,” said A.S. Srikanth, chief
executive officer, COMED-K.
COMED-K will also introduce block system of seat arrangement
wherein each block will have 24 candidates. In no circumstance will two candidates
sitting side by side or behind get similar question booklets. Besides, it will install
jammers and metal detectors at all the test centre’s and ensure that each centre
will have a chief observer, a deputy chief observer, an invigilator, a center observer
and a mobile squad. Over 18,418 candidates, 1% more than the number of candidates
attended the test last year will take up the exam conducted at 27 centers across
the city. Selected candidates will be eligible to get admission at 12 medical and
19 dental colleges in the state which are associated with COMED-K.
