AP EAMCET Notification 2015

The Andhra Pradesh government is worried that Seemandhra students will lose access to the top colleges located in and around Hyderabad if separate EAMCET or other CETs are held. It is because of this it has been pitching for common CETs. It’s common for CET rankers to opt for universities and colleges located in Hyderabad. 

The APSCHE announced that it will hold the EAMCET on May 10, ECET on May 14, ICET on May 16, EdCET on May 28 and Lawcet on May 30, 2015. 

The government and students of AP were promised that their interests would not be harmed as the AP Reorganisation Act promised common admissions and quotas for 10 years after bifurcation. However, the TS government’s efforts to conduct separate CETs for Telangana students has become a cause of concern for them.

All the top colleges in engineering, medical, management etc. are located in Hyderabad. The toppers in Eamcet and Icet prefer colleges like the OU engineering colleges and JNTU-Kukatpally and private colleges like CBIT, MGIT, Vasavi, Mathrusri, Sri Nidhi, Guru-nanak, Gokaraju Rangaraju, BVRIT, VNR Vignana Jyothi etc., located in and around Hyderabad. Similarly, medical toppers vie for seats in the city’s Osmania Medical College and Gandhi Medical College and the nearly 20 private medical colleges.

Though the TS government is willing to offer 15 per cent seats in the open quota in all colleges to Seemandhra students it will be open to TS students also. Moreover, AP has doubts about the control it would have on the counselling conducted by TS and how it can ensure 15 per cent quota for Seemandhra students. AP fears that once CETs are separated, it would automatically lose control over counselling and it wants to ensure that the CETs are not separated.
