If separate Eamcet or other CETs are held the AP govt is worried that Seemandhra students will lose access to the top colleges located in and around Hyd. It is because of this it has been chucking for common CETs. It’s common for CET rankers to opt for universities and colleges located in Hyd.
The TS govt’s affords to conduct separate CETs for Telangana students has become a cause of worry for them.
The toppers in Eamcet and Icet prefer colleges like the OU engineering colleges and JNTU-Kukatpally and private colleges like CBIT, MGIT, Vasavi, Mathrusri, Sri Nidhi, Guru-nanak, Gokaraju Rangaraju, BVRIT, VNR Vignana Jyothi etc., located in and around Hyd.All the top colleges in engineering, medical, management etc. are located in Hyderabad.
In addition, medical toppers vie for seats in the city’s Gandhi Medical College and Osmania Medical College and the roughly 20 private medical colleges. The TS govt is willing to offer 15% seats in the open quota in all colleges to non locals.
Moreover, AP has ambiguity about the control it would have on the counselling conducted by TS and how it can ensure 15% quota for Seemandhra students.
AP fears that once CETs are separated, it would automatically lose control over counselling and it wants to ensure that the CETs are not separated.
