Counselling for admission to MBBS and BDS courses at medical colleges in the state began at the Dr NTR University of Health Sciences (NTRUHS) here on Monday. The counselling was conducted simultaneously also at Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam and Tirupati.

The university authorities have made elaborate arrangements for web counselling and admissions process. Eighteenth ranker in EAMCET-2013 Y B Ganesh opted for Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad.

He said he wanted to go in for Neurology at the post-graduation level after completing Medicine. He studied at Sri Chaitanya-Narayana College in Vijayawada. Another student K Alekhya, also a student of Sri Chaitanya-Narayana Vijayawada campus and who secured 23rd rank, also chose Osmania Medical College. She too wants to become a neurologist. Vice-chancellor IV Rao and registrar S Babulal issued the admission certificates to Ganesh and Alekhya.

Hundreds of rankers attending the counselling reached the university by 9 am and waited for their turn. Some student unions staged a dharna  demanding that the management quota seats in private medical colleges be filled as per the merit ranks. They alleged that the university had failed to implement the rules strictly in regard to management quota.

Rao said the university was monitoring the admissions to private colleges.
