Telangana to conduct separate EAMCET exam

Telangana to conduct separate EAMCET exam


The Telangana government has showed interest to conduct separate EAMCET entrance examination for admission to engineering, pharmacy and medical disciplines from the academic year 2015.

As per the intermediate board, it is not difficult for the board to prepare the final merit list of the students of two states. Since, IITs use normalisation procedure to conduct Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for 29 states across the country. In the JEE normalisation procedure, 40% of board marks and entrance exam scores will add to prepare the final merit list.

However, Andhra Pradesh government is also ready to conduct separate entrance exam.

A senior official of Telangana said, "Just like the IITs calculate the rank by a percentile system that includes marks in the intermediate examination, the merit of students for common admissions between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana can be determined in a similar manner."

He also said that in preparing the final rank for admission to IITs, JEE takes the marks obtained in the languages also. If the IIT system can determine the final rank by including languages, we candidates also do it for two states.

Every year more than 18 lakh students will appear for the intermediate examinations in AP and TS.

As per the AP Reorganisation Act, both the states have to conduct inter and EAMCET exams for the next 10 years. But, both the governments have to take a serious step on this issue.
