V.C. Sekhar

In private medical colleges 50 per cent of the seats for undergraduate course (MBBS) are known as merit seats and other 50 per cent seats are called payment seats (for which also you need to qualify the examination). NRI/foreign students fill 15 per cent of the payment seats. Allocation of seats -- SCs 18 per cent, STs 1 per cent, BCs 30 per cent, Most backward and denotified communities 20 per cent and General 31 per cent. Foreign nationals are not required to appear in the entrance examination.All private as well as Government medical institutes follow the eligibility criteria prescribed by their respective universities. Candidates seeking admission to a medical college should have passed senior secondary examination of CBSE or its equivalent with physics, chemistry and biology with 50 per cent marks.

Eligibility for DSC

I have completed my B.Com from Osmania University. As a pre-primary teacher in a Government school, am I eligible for B.Ed offered by Karnataka Open University? Is it recognised by NCTE? After completing this will I be eligible for the DSC exam conducted by the Andhra Pradesh Government?


Since you are a graduate you are eligible for the B.Ed course. The degree of Karnataka Open University is recognised by the National Council for Teacher Education. To be eligible for the DSC exam you need to have a B.Ed or an equivalent recognised degree. District Selection Committee (DSC) recruits Government teacher posts in the State. The notifications come out in Employment News. There be will no interviews for candidates who qualify in the written examination and instead weightage will be given for 15 per cent marks based on formal educational qualifications, Teacher Training Course (TTC) and B.Ed qualification, age and experience as Vidya volunteers (untrained teachers on contract basis on payment of honorarium in Government schools). The remaining 85 per cent marks are earmarked for performance in the examination. Applications of candidates will be screened on computer to arrive at the allotment of marks for the 15 per cent weightage and such marks will be indicated in the hall-ticket well before the candidates appear for the examination. Scheduled Castes and STs can attempt the DSC even if they do not possess B.Ed/SGT qualification.

MBA programme in UK

I have completed my three-year degree course Bachelor of Business Administration. I wish to know what opportunities are available to pursue further studies in the UK in the related subject.


Most UK universities accept the Indian graduation system of three years for entry into the MBA programme. But they insist on work experience of a minimum of two to three years. GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is accepted by most universities. will give you details regarding GMAT. You need to take either TOEFL or IELTS for admission to an MBA programme in the UK. IELTS is an English language proficiency test that is required to be taken by non-native students for study in countries where the medium of instruction is English. For details visit;;;
