Chandigarh: The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) on Monday declared the results of MD/MS entrance examination conducted on December 8. The results have been displayed on PGI website www.pgimer.nic.in.
According to PGIMER spokesperson, the first counselling will be held on December 22 at 12 o'clock. The successful candidates have been asked to carry their admit cards with them. They will be allowed to appear in the counselling only after their fingerprints match with the orginal one, said the spokesperson.
The premier institute sucessfully reconducted the entrance examination on Saturday in 10 centres across Chandigarh. Out of the total 7,280 eligible candidates, 5,837 turned up for the exam. There are 178 seats available in various departments for MD/MS courses.
The exam, which was earlier held on November 10, was cancelled after the CBI busted a cheating racket which used seven dummy candidates to leak the question paper to other members using sophisticated gadgets such as button cameras and bluetooth devices.
The questions were transmitted to experts sitting in Hyderabad and Patna who solved the paper. Around 5,240 candidates had appeared for the exam.
