BANGALORE: Boys have fared better than girls in the Postgraduate Entrance Test (PGET) for medical and dental courses conducted by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS).
Among the top ten ranks in medical stream, boys secured seven. In dental stream, they got six ranks. A total of 9,127 candidates (for medical) and 2,180 (for dental) candidates wrote the PGET conducted on January 29. Among them 6,828 medical students (under general and in-service quota) and 1,399 dental students under the two categories were eligible.
Dr Adarsh K M from Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences, Bellary, secured first rank in the medical test with 183 marks. “I was not expecting the first rank at all. Now, I prefer the Bangalore Medical College. I want to specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology,” he said. The counselling will be conducted in April.
