Kerala Medical Entrance: Irfan, Shammi bag first two ranks

Wednesday May 25, 2011 06:31:09 PM, TCN News

Thiruvananthapuram: V Irfan and N Shammi have won the first two ranks in the Kerala state Medical Entrance Exams of 2011. Education Minister P Abdurabb announced the results yesterday in a press conference in Thiruvananthapuram. The third rank was bagged by P Ashitha.

Irfan, son of late Prof V Muhammed Kutty and NK Khadeeja, bagged the first rank scoring 944.78. Hailing from Mattathur in Malappuram district, Irfan is sad only that his father who encouraged him much in his studies is not with him to see his achievement. His father who was lecturer of Chemistry in PSMO College, Tirurangadi, died three years ago in a road accident when Irfan was in 10th standard. Though his father may not be with him, Irfan wrote the medical entrance as per the wishes of his mother and has bagged the rank. He wishes to conduct researches in the medical field and to be active in medical service. He had attempted the entrance exam soon after completing his Plus Two last year, but did not get expected scores. And now he has got the first rank in his second attempt. He has three brothers and one sister.

The second-rank holder N Shammi is the son of Nasarudheen and Rajeena. He hails from Kollam district. Shammi had written both the engineering and medical entrance exams last year but failed to get good ranks. So this year he devoted his time only for the medical and has bagged the second rank. Interested in pediatrics, Shammi wishes to join the Thiruvananthapuram Medical College for his studies.

Third-rank holder Ashitha hails from Ernakulam, and is daughter of PT Pathrose and Lisi. P Krishnamohan of Kozhikode won the first rank among the Scheduled Castes and Geethu Divakar of Wayanad won the first rank among the Scheduled Tribes. In the general list, MA Ahmed Kabeer, VB Siyas and Shahma Silvana topped the rank lists in Thrissur, Kozhikode and Wayanad districts, respectively.

The score list of engineering entrance exams have also been published, which is available on the website of the entrance exam commissioner. However, the rank list will be announced in June only after adding the marks of the qualifying exam.

Out of the 77,335 students who wrote the medical entrance exam, 64,814 have found their names in the rank list, with 44,441 of them being girls. Out of the 1,01,905 students who wrote the engineering entrance exams, 65,632 have been qualified, with 31,979 of them being girls.

The results are available on the following websites:
