The registration link for the Telangana State Engineering Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET) has been closed by the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE). The registration process, which began on March 3, concluded on May 2 with a significant increase in the number of applicants as compared to the previous year. According to media reports, more than 53,000 additional candidates have applied for the examination this year, with the majority of students applying for engineering from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The total number of applications for engineering courses has reached 2,05,295, and there has also been a notable increase in the number of applicants for agriculture and medicine streams, with over 17,000 more applications received by the TSCHE in Telangana.
Professor R Limbadri, the chairman of TSCHE, stated in an interview with the Times of India that the rise in the number of candidates was expected due to the high enrolment in Intermediate and the growing interest in new courses in both streams like nursing and engineering. This year, the number of centres has also increased to 104 from 80 last year in Telangana. The examination authorities are taking measures to ensure fair conduct of the examination, such as undertaking technical audits of the exam venue, providing a sitting squad at every exam venue, and allowing only the chief superintendent and observer to use their phones inside the examination venue.
The TS EAMCET 2023 examination is conducted by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, on behalf of the TSCHE, for students seeking admission into various professional programmes offered by institutes in the state of Telangana. The candidates will be selected based on their performance in the TS EAMCET 2023, and 25% weightage will be given to intermediate (class 12) marks. Additionally, the board has issued hall tickets to the students, and the process to download the hall ticket has been provided on the official website of TS EAMCET.
