COMEDK stands for "Consortium of Medical Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka” and was formed by the Karnataka Private Medical & Dental Colleges Association and the Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering Colleges Association in a bid to offer an effective, fair and objective testing procedure to determine merit of students seeking admissions to the Member Institutions.
COMEDK is responsible for organising a Common Entrance Test for the academic year 2013-2014, for candidates aspiring to pursue under graduate courses in Medical, Dental and Engineering Colleges in Karnataka in member institutions of the Consortium (Medical, Dental and Engineering Colleges).
MBBS / BDS:
Candidates should have passed the qualifying examination (higher secondary or equivalent examination) that is recognized by State / Central Government and should have had Physics, Chemistry and Biology (PCB) with English as compulsory subjects in the last 2 years of their studies. As per the Medical Council of India (MCI) and Dental Council of India (DCI) norms the students should have passed each of these subjects individually and must have obtained a minimum of 50% of marks taken together in PCB. The students must also secure at least 50% marks in PCB in the Common Entrance Test (COMEDK UGET-2013). For SC, ST candidates of All India and OBC Candidates of Karnataka, the same rules apply except that they need to obtain a minimum of 40% of marks taken together in PCB and secure at least 40% in PCB in the Common Entrance Test (COMEDK UGET-2013).
The student should also have completed 17 years of age on or before 31st December of the year of admission to the MBBS/BDS course.
Lakhs of students appear for the pre-medical/dental and engineering examinations and the numbers have only increased over the years. Some preparation tips for aspiring doctors/dentists/engineers/architects:
