MANAGEMENT WOES 1 lakh students skip Eamcet counselling !
Nearly 1 lakh students who qualified in the Eamcet engineering entrance exam this year skipped the ongoing counselling giving college managements the jitters.
Fearing closure of their institutions, managements have blamed the confusion surrounding the fee reimbursement scheme for the sharp drop in students attendance during counsel
A total of 2.31 lakh qualified candidates were called for counselling this year, but only 1,40,452 turned up till September 9, indicating absenteeism of 39 per cent.
While 30,000 students have been called for the counselling on September 12, the last day, the officials expect only 13,000 to turn up leaving the total number of absentees at 1.07 lakh.
This has created fears that several colleges would have to down shutters because of
lack of sufficient intake of students.
