Officials are toying with the idea of conducting EAMCET and ICET counselling in August and start classes in September while advancing the Ed-CET counselling to the last week of this month.

The delay in EAMCET counselling, which the officials planned to complete in the last week of July, is due to two factors. First, EAMCET final ranks are delayed this year as the officials decided to wait till the results of revaluation and recounting are out, and the second is the sanction of a large number of colleges this year by the AICTE despite the State government sending signals against it.
