The demand for separate common entrance test for private medical colleges in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is likely to be approved by NTR Health University.
NTR University has sent a letter to the Medical Council of India (MCI) regarding conducting CET for private medical colleges.
Private medical colleges will be conducting their own entrance exam similar to EAMCET to admit the students for medical and dental courses.
The new entrance exam would be conducted by the Higher Education Council. Discussions are going between the private medical colleges association and Higher Education Council members.
Admission to the medical and dental colleges would be carried out through counselling. Once the MCI approves, management quota seats will be filled through counselling.
NTR University officials will discuss this matter with both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana government.
Currently, around 60% of medical and dental seats would be filled through EAMCET scores. Remaining seats will be filled by private medical colleges managements.
Around 15% of seats will be reserved for NRI students.
The official wrote a letter to Medical council of India to give guidelines to them, after they receive the guidelines, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana chief ministers will be approached. It is likely that talented students will get fair chances of getting admissions into medical and dental colleges under management quota.
If the new proposal is approved, only 2,400 seats in 15 government medical colleges in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana would be filled through EAMCET. Remaining seats would be filled through private medical colleges CET.
