In a list released on Monday, 147 candidates from all over UP chose CSMU as their first choice, leaving only 11 seats at the University vacant for the rest of the candidates. The CSMU has 185 seats, out of which 27 are filled through CBSE and the remaining 158 through the CPMT.The results of Sunday’s counselling were released today and 738 students have already decided upon their choices, which means that almost all MBBS seats have now been taken and students will have to opt for other streams like Homeopathy.” 269 students also withdrew their security deposits, as they did not get the seat of their choice.The Directorate of Medical Education also cleared the confusion relating to MBBS seats, as the admission booklet had mentioned 765 MBBS seats, but the actual number open to the counselling was just 749. “There is no anomaly in the system. Out of 765 seats, we have to give 16 seats to the Central Government and that is why there are 749 seats.As per information released by the office of the Director General Medical Education (DGME), students above the rank of 13,000 were suppose to appear for counselling on Wednesday. The confusion began when no other specification was made. As a result, students having ranks up to 35,000 and 40,000 also came for counselling for just 1,600 seats.
