Eamcet, the common entrance exam for medical, engineering and agricultural courses, is now not the criteria for admissions into the degree courses in Telengana. It is known that the Telugu speaking states were depending on Eamcet from the past several years. As united Andhra Pradesh, Eamcet was the main entrance exam at the state level.
After the division of the state, Telengana decided to go ahead with a separate system rather than depending on Eamcet for the admissions. On this deputy CM kadiyam Srihari mentioned that the medical students will be depending on Neet exam which is being conducted by the central government.
For the engineering students, Telengana government is working on the options on how to set the admissions systems in the state. Intermediate marks too were stated to be a criteria in the process. On the other hand, Telengana government is set to pass a rule of keeping the engineering fees constant for all the colleges.
