No MBBS admission list yet from private colleges :
Almost a month after the closing of MBBS admissions to self-financing medical colleges, only four colleges have submitted the complete list of students they have admitted in the 35% management quota seats to the admission supervisory committee ( ASC ).
The ASC is now planning to get the admission list from the university and check if the students admitted in the management quota are from the merit list prepared by them. Of the eight self-financing medical colleges, only the Sree Narayana Institute of Medical Sciences, Ernakulam; Travancore Medical College, Kollam; MES Medical College, Palachode, Perintalmanna; and DM Wayanad Institute of Medical Sciences have submitted the list to the ASC. The admissions were completed on Septemeber 30.
“We are in the process of studying the list submitted by the four colleges and have also called for the list submitted by the colleges to the Kerala University of Health Sciences ( KUHS ) to compare,” said ASC chairman Justice J M James.
As the self-financing colleges are affiliated to KUHS, they have to submit the list of students in their rolls to the university for registration. “The students can write the exam only after their names are registered with the university,” an ASC source said.
The ASC had, in September, asked the self-financing medical colleges to provide a list of all students admitted under various categories general category, management quota (35%) and NRI quota (15%). This was done after it came to the ASC’s notice that some students admitted under the management quota were from outside the list of qualified candidates prepared by the committee.
On scrutiny, it was found that MES Medical College and Gokulam Medical College had admitted three unqualified candidates each and the KMCT Medical College, 12 such candidates. The committee also found that the list furnished by five other medical colleges was incomplete.
The committee had then nullified the admissions of candidates whose names did not figure in the list of 408 qualified candidates prepared by them.
