Accordingly, the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET) for admissions into BE/BTech/BPharmacy/Pharm D etc., will be conducted from July 5 to 9. The Telangana State Engineering Common Entrance Test (TS ECET) 2021 is scheduled to be held on July 1. Both these entrance tests will be organized by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University-Hyderabad.

Likewise, the TSCHE has scheduled the Telangana State Post Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test (TS PGECET) for admissions into ME/MTech/MPharm/MArch/PharmD (PB) etc., from June 20. The Osmania University (OU) has been entrusted the job of holding the PGECET.

The test dates for CETs including Integrated Common Entrance Test (ICET), Education Common Entrance Test (EdCET), Law Common Entrance Test (LawCET), PG Law Common Entrance Test (PGLawCET), and Physical Education Common Entrance Test (TS PECET) will be notified later as final semester examinations of various UG courses are yet to be announced by the universities, TSCHE chairman Prof. T Papi Reddy said.

As announced earlier, the TS EAMCET 2021 will have a reduced syllabus. Only 70 per cent of the syllabus in the Intermediate second year will be considered for the TS EAMCET. However, the entire intermediate first-year syllabus will be covered for the entrance test as students have already attended physical classes during the academic year 2019-20.

The syllabus for TS EAMCET has been reduced since the Board of Intermediate Education has cut down syllabus for both first and second-year courses by 30 per cent for the academic year 2020-21 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Majority of the intermediate classes were held online. Accordingly, the Board has submitted a curtailed syllabus to the TSCHE.

Conveners appointed

Meanwhile, the TSCHE appointed Prof. K Raji Reddy from the University College of Commerce and Business Management, Kakatiya University, as convener of TS ICET. Prof. P Laximnarayana from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, OU will be the convener for TS PGECET while Prof. A Ramakrishna (Department of Education, OU) will be the convener for TS EdCET. Prof. GB Reddy of the University College of Law, OU will be the convener for TS LAWCET and TS PGLCET while Prof. V Satyanarayana (Mahatma Gandhi University) is the convener for TS PECET.

Earlier, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University-Hyderabad (JNTU-H) Rector Prof. A Govardhan and JNTU-H Director of Admissions Prof. Venkata Ramana were appointed as conveners for TS EAMCET and TS ECET respectively.
