According to the schedule issued by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University-Hyderabad, which is conducting the entrance test, the last date to apply through the website without a late fee is May 18.

Candidates can correct the already submitted application form from May 19 to 27. With a late fee of Rs 250 and Rs 500, candidates can apply up to May 28 and June 7 respectively. The applications will be also accepted with a late fee of Rs 2,500 and Rs 5,000 up to June 17 and 28, respectively.

The test fee is Rs 800 (Rs 400 for SC/ST & PH candidates). If a candidate is appearing for both engineering and AM streams, the fee is Rs 1,600 (Rs 800 SC/ST & PH candidates). Students can download their hall tickets from the website from June 17 to July 1.

The entrance test for the AM stream will be conducted on July 5 and 6 whereas the engineering test is scheduled for July 7, 8 and 9. Both the exams will be conducted in two sessions i.e., 9 am to 12 noon, and 3 pm to 6 pm.

In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year, 70 per cent of the syllabus in the intermediate second-year and the entire syllabus of the intermediate first-year syllabus will be considered for the entrance test. The syllabus for the first-year intermediate remain changed as students attended all physical classes during the academic year 2019-20 and class work in the academic year 2020-21 was derailed due to pandemic induced lockdown. As a result, the Telangana Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) has cut down the syllabus in the intermediate first and second year by 30 per cent.

Like every year, the entrance test will comprise 160 questions. However, the university has tweaked the weightage allotted to the intermediate first and second-year syllabus. This time, 55 per cent weightage will be given to first-year and 45 per cent weightage to the second-year intermediate syllabus of the TS BIE. Last year, 50 per cent weightage was equally given to both first and second-year intermediate syllabus in the entrance test.
