Interview must for MBBS PG aspirants

Interview must for MBBS PG aspirants
HYDERABAD: MBBS graduates opting for post graduate courses under management quota will have to clear an interview from this academic year.

A government order issued by the state health department on Monday said weightage of 15% marks would be allotted to interviews while preparing the merit list "to assess the candidate's character, motivation and suitability for the medical profession and studies."

Similar would be the case with post graduate students opting for super specialty courses under management quota. The final merit list of candidates will be prepared on the basis of the individual's cumulative performance in the Post Graduate (MD/MS) university examination, which will carry 85% weightage, and the marks obtained in the interview.

The total marks would be displayed on notice boards of colleges and their respective websites and would also be sent to the Dr N T R University of Health Sciences for approval. The colleges should admit the candidates strictly in the order of merit shown in the approved merit list, the GO said.

Meanwhile, the fee structure for UG and PG courses in medical and dental streams would remain unchanged this academic year.
