Telangana govt relaxes Eamcet eligibility criteria for 2020-21

HYDERABAD: A day after the High Court halted the second phase of engineering, agriculture, medical common entrance test (Eamcet) counselling, the Telangana (TS) government relaxed the eligibility criteria for the exam on Thursday.
As per government order no 201 issued by the higher education department, all the students who have cleared intermediate exams are qualified in Eamcet-2020 counselling. As per the earlier Eamcet notification, candidates with 45 per cent marks (40 per cent in case of candidates belonging to reserved category) in the subjects specified in intermediate except for BPharmacy course were eligible for counselling. The move of doing away with the minimum qualifying marks is a one- time measure by the government in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic.
“Authorities to permit such students to appear for counselling in respect of TS-Eamcet (admissions) – 2020 without insisting on the eligibility criteria for qualifying examination marks. This order applies only for this year i.e. 2020-21 as a special case and shall not be precedent in future, and shall not be applied from 2021-2022 onwards,” read the GO.

Following this, Navin Mittal, convenor of Telangana Eamcet (admissions), 2020 revised the final phase of admission schedule. As per the revised schedule, candidates will be able to apply online, pay processing fee and attend for certificate verification as per the relaxed qualifying criteria on October 31. Certificate verification for already slot booked candidates in the final phase will be held on November 1. Candidates will be able to exercise their options from October 30 to November 2 and provisional allotment of seats will be declared on November 4. Candidates have to pay tuition fee and self-report through the website from November 4 to November 7. Source From : Times Of India
