  1. […] the inside groups completely immune from scrutiny, even in light of contrary data […]

  2. […] Now if you are a unreserved poor students – the hit will be severe and the only seats affordable and accessible to you are the seats in government colleges.   In addition to this, the unreserved category students aren’t necessarily topping the exams either.  If youve  been reading this blog you’d know these arent classifications based on monitoring or presence of disabilities. I’ve documented the extreme case of 2013 Tamilnadu Medical Admissions here. […]

    Do you have any statistics how many CBSE students got admitted by the state government through their admission process?

      I have no idea what you are talking about.

    today when I calculated ,the number of seats allotted to BCM is only 105.whereas you have calculated it to be 132.( no more seats available for BCM in the vacancy list)

    Just being born in the FC poor family is the crime for the hapless number of eligible students. Very good social justice. The lack of consideration of merit for opportunities already shows the results in health care across the country. Isn’t this the cruelty that we is repeated?

  7. […] Continuing our data series on Tamilnadu medical admissions which you wont find in any main stream media.  This time we will look at the MBBS admissions for 2015-16 and see how it compares with our old analysis of 2013-14. […]

    Very good analysis. Due to this quota system in our Country, 70 % merit is gone. Its high time we go with global standards for admission. While India copies other things globally, why not copy the system of merit in admission to educational institution and employment. Government can render free education ONLY to those who cannot afford to pay the fees.

  9. […] admissions there were 132 students tied at 100%.  At each 0.125% typically there will be about 200-300 students tied. For example: there will be 132 tied at 100%, 292 at 99.875%, 218 at 99.75% … and so […]
