Students’ Eamcet ranks to decide BE college

HYDERABAD: Engineering colleges in the state will now be graded on the basis of the Eamcet ranks of their students. According to the three-member high power committee which is in charge of the grading, the college which took in students with the highest cut off ranks in Eamcet will be given the first rank. The logic behind the move is that the college that attracts the best students could be giving quality instruction and so it should be ranked at the top.

But the move has not gone down well with the college managements that have come up with petitions against the grading. On Tuesday morning, engineering college associations submitted a petition to the higher level committee asking it to stop the grading process as it would make admissions impossible in colleges which have come up recently.

The colleges said that grading should be introduced only after they are given enough time to better their facilities. “None of the colleges in the state fulfil all the criteria prescribed by the All India Council for Technical Education ( AICTE) and hence there is no point in ranking all 262 colleges,” said KVK Rao, a management representative of St Mary’s Group of Institutions.

Meanwhile, concluding a meeting with managements, educationists and industry insiders on Tuesday, the members of the high level committee said that as per the instructions of minister for higher education, Damodar Raja Narasimha, there was no move to abandon the grading process.

“The 10 measures of grading have already been decided and colleges will be ranked by mid-February,” said D N Reddy, member of the high power committee.
