The fate of 70,000 odd aspirants who appeared in the Combined Pre Medical Test
(CPMT) 2009 will be declared on June 20. However, only about 2.5% of the total lucky ones will be able to get admission in medical, dental, homeopathy and ayurvedic colleges.
Meanwhile, hectic preparations are underway at the Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University -- which conducted the CPMT 2009 -- to announce the results on time.
Vice-chancellor, CSMMU, Prof Saroj Chooramani Gopal said the task is a mammoth one. Examining some 70,000 copies is painstaking even though it is to be done with the help of computers. The next hurdle is preparing the merit list.
Prof Singh said that the results will be declared on the website www.kgmcindia.edu/cpmt.htm. Candidates can log on to the website. Thereafter, they will have to select the results portal. After the page opens, they may enter their roll numbers into a column and press the enter key. In few seconds, the rank and the marks obtained by the students will be displayed on the computer screen. Students can also take a hard copy of their marksheet.
The counselling part, however, will be managed by directorate of medical education. Giving details of counselling, officer on special duty, medical education directorate, Dr KC Rastogi, said, though the counselling schedule is yet to be finalised, seats will be allotted to students through online counselling like previous years. For this on-campus online centres will be set up in various districts where students can register themselves.
Officials added that students will be asked to fill the personal details and preferences in the form on the computer installed at the centre. All the centres will be linked to a master computer at NIC Centre, Lucknow, through an exclusive intra-networking line. After students from all the seven centres have filled their forms, the computer will be blocked for processing of the data. Thereafter, the computer will display a list showing the seats assigned to the students.
Dr Rastogi said that the candidates will have to attend the counselling schedules in person and no representatives will be allowed as the state government had abolished the system of accepting authority letters.
CPMT counselling will be unique this time by virtue of a biometric identification of each candidate who attends the process. The candidate will have to give a thumb impression before entering the counselling hall. This impression will be tallied with impressions collected before. In case of deviation, the candidate will be handed over to the police. - ET
