"The examination was conducted from May 22 to May 25 and the results were declared within a week. It is a record," said Osmania University vice-chancellor S.Satyanarayana.
Venugopal Reddy cautioned that engineering colleges have to cut down on not-so-popular courses at the PG level. Specialisations in courses such as pharmaceutical chemistry and traditional courses such as civil and mechanical engineering seem to have lost favour with job-seekers, he said.
