25 private dental colleges may opt for COMED-K test

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, MARCH 13. About 25 private unaided dental colleges attached to the Karnataka Private Dental Colleges' Association are likely to opt for the all-India Common Entrance Test (CET) to be conducted by the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMED-K).

Meanwhile the consortium, which met here on Saturday to finalise its CET dates, deferred a decision till Wednesday. "We decided to postpone it as the COMED-K Vice-Chairman, M.R. Jayaram, was not in station today," the consortium chairman, R.L. Jalappa, told The Hindu.

Sources said the Dental Colleges' Association held a series of meetings in the past two days and had reportedly decided to go along with the COMED-K test. The association is likely to make its decision public on Monday.

The Supreme Court had ruled that management quota professional seats could be filled through an entrance test conducted either by the State Government or an association of private managements. There was no provision for more than one association to hold the entrance test.

Saturday's COMED-K meeting discussed elaborately the procedures for the entrance test applications, the test centres, and probable dates. The test is likely to be conducted two days before or after the State CET scheduled from May 18 to 21.

The consortium had recently conducted an entrance test for post-graduate medical colleges under its fold. Buoyed by the success of this test, it had formed a five-member advisory panel to look into the admission process for the undergraduate courses.
