University may hold PG entrance test

Staff Reporter

It is to fill seats in unaided colleges

BANGALORE: The State Government is likely to ask the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to conduct a common entrance test to fill postgraduate medical and dental seats in unaided colleges for 2006-07.

This follows the decision of the S. Venkataraman Committee overseeing professional college admissions to defer a proposal by the Karnataka Private Medical and Dental Colleges' Association to conduct a test on its own.

The committee had asked the State to hold a test on its own or through an agency as per the Supreme Court judgment in the P.A. Inamdar case.

Regulations

The committee has asked the Government to consider framing regulations to govern admissions to postgraduate courses through a centralised and single window procedure.

But the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges in Karnataka (COMEDK) had objected to the committee's decision stating that the committee cannot stop the consortium from holding a test.

The test is scheduled for next month.

The Karnataka Religious and Linguistic Minority Professional Colleges Association is holding a separate test for its member colleges.

CET Cell warning

Meanwhile, the Common Entrance Test (CET) Cell has warned students not to be misled by newspaper advertisements placed by the All India Medical and Engineering Colleges Association, Delhi, for an entrance test for admission to management quota seats in undergraduate and postgraduate medical, dental, pharmacy and nursing colleges.

The association has no jurisdiction over Karnataka, the CET Cell said in a press release issued here.
