The Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS-EAMCET) 2021 will be conducted after June 14 as the class 10 SSC public examinations will have long concluded by then - they will be held from May 17 to May 26
The decision was announced following a meeting of the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) and the officials of the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H), which was convened by Principal Secretary (Education) Chitra Ramachandran, to discuss matters relating to the conduct of the exam amidst the ongoing pandemic.
The officials deliberated over a number of issues, including the syllabus for the exam, the number and location of examination centres, and the implementation of Covid-19 protocols at the centres. TSCHE chief T Papi Reddy assured students and parents alike that care would be taken to conduct the exams safely, and complete adherence to all Covid-19 safety protocols would be ensured at every exam centre.
Addressing the issue of the reduction of the syllabus for the TS-EAMCET, Ramachandran said that while the entire course taught during the intermediate first year would be tested, only 70% of the second year course would be included in the exam.
(The reduction of the syllabus became a matter of much speculation after the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education reduced its syllabus by 30% this year, and decided to test only 70% of the course in the upcoming intermediate public examinations. Following this, Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy had said that the revised syllabus would be released soon
. Today's announcement comes exactly five days after Reddy's.)
TSCHE chief T Papi Reddy assured students and parents alike that care would be taken to conduct the exams safely, and complete adherence to all Covid-19 safety protocols would be ensured at every exam centre.
It is expected that the schedule and syllabus details for the exam will also be released by the end of the day.
