EAMCET ranks will be prepared without board marks

Andhra Pradesh and Telangana government have decided not to include the intermediate board marks to prepare the EAMCET rank list from the next academic year 2015.

From 2015, both the states will have their own intermediate board to conduct class 11th and class 12th examinations. The governments have decided to scrap the weightage given to the intermediate marks in EAMCET final ranking, as a common entrance exam with separate intermediate boards will require a normalisation procedure to prepare the EAMCET ranks.

The normalisation procedure has already been used for JEE Main entrance examination to prepare the all India rank list. But, it is under fire with several cases being filed in courts.

However, officials are also of the view that scrapping the 25 per cent Intermediate weightage might be a good idea due to the controversies that normalisation processes usually attract.

With common entrance exam and a separate exam, two governments have two options. One is to evolve a normalisation process and other is to scrapping the weithtage of marks given to the EAMCET.

The normalisation process, which is used is JEE Main and top 20 percentile for JEE Advanced exam had adversely affected the prospectus of many students in selecting the IITs and NITs.
