Candidates from Karnataka have performed well in the under-graduate entrance test conducted by the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMED-K), the results of which were announced Tuesday.

The first 10 ranks for engineering have been secured by candidates from the state. Abhijeet Shenoi, a science student of National Public School, Indiranagar, stood first in the UGET for engineering with a score of 161 out of 200.

“The secret to success is no secret at all, it’s just hard work and enjoying yourself while doing what you do,” said Abhijeet, a resident of Domlur. “I prepared for IIT and that helped me prepare for COMED-K. I am awaiting the IIT results to make my choice,” he said.

Sucheth S Kuncham stood second with 158 marks, followed by Pratheek M Sadare with 155 marks.

Neeli Devee Krishna Shashidhar from Andhra Pradesh stood first in the UGET medical, followed by Hemanth Amardeep Santhoor, an aspiring neurosurgeon. “My previous experience in entrance exams of Manipal, AIIMS, CMC, Vellore, and the CET helped me in COMED-K,” said Hemanth, who stood first in the CET.

Harini Seshadri and Ashish K from Karnataka secured third and fourth ranks, respectively.

The UGET rank list will determine the admissions in 12 medical, 25 dental and 157 engineering colleges in the state. For more details, visit
