No change in EAMCET syllabus this year.

HYDERABAD: With the Eamcet-2011 scheduled for May 8, the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) vice-chancellor DN Reddy has written a letter to the education department to give an exemption in the eligibility criteria for engineering courses.

As per the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) norms, a minimum of 50 percent score in (mathematics, physics and chemistry) in the Intermediate exams is essential for eligibility to engineering courses.

“We have written a letter to the AICTE officials in this regard and requested them to exempt the minimum eligibility criteria for engineering students. We are awaiting the decision and will abide by the AICTE decision on the issue,” the vice-chancellor said.

JNTU examination committee has decided to set up cell phone ‘jammers’ along with manual frisking being introduced for the medical examination. Eamcet will be conducted in 606 centres for engineering candidates and in 104 centres for medical students across the state.

“There is no change in the syllabus of the examination this year and the SMS facility will continue this year as well. While we will be taking help from the state revenue department and other universities to conduct the examination, additional examination centres will be set up this year based on the applications received,” said convenor for Eamcet-2011, Dr. NV Ramana Rao.

Meanwhile, grading of engineering colleges across the state is underway and the grading will be announced within the next two weeks, said principal secretary for higher education, CR Biswal.
