Engineering classes this year will commence in August, a month earlier than last year, with the officials expediting the work related to it including announcing the results of the Engineering, Agriculture, Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) and also renewing affiliation to the colleges under the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Hyderabad.
The results of EAMCET exam held from May 10 to 14 will be declared on May 25 and officials have already completed the decoding of the answer sheets.
Meanwhile, the notification for admissions is likely to be issued in the first week of June.
The web-based online admissions will be done in three phases and the first phase will be completed by the end of June.
Telangana State Council of Higher Education chairman R. Limbadri is of the view that engineering classes should start in August this year to streamline the academic year that has gone out of gear due to the pandemic related issues over the last three years.
This time, the TSCHE is clear that vacancies arising after IIT and NIT admissions, usually conducted in third week of July, would be filled through a separate phase for such seats or through spot admission process to save time.
This year, a total of 2,05,295 candidates registered for the engineering exam and of those 95% appeared for the exam.
