The Telangana State Council for Higher Education (TSCHE) is firm on conducting common entrance test for admission to PG courses in different universities in the state. The varsities are requesting higher authorities to continue with the existing system under which each varsity will conduct its own test to fill seats in different PG courses under it. However, the state council wants to go ahead with its decision to conduct the common entrance test.
Students will not have to write PG entrance tests in each varsity if a common test in place and it would also ensure transparency in admissions, feel the authorities.
Meanwhile, TSCHE chairman N.Papi Reddy named the conveners of all CETs barring EdCET-2017. With admission process of EdCET-2016 yet to be completed due to legal hassle and other issues, council wants to go slow on this issue. Once the counselling formalities are completed, EdCET-2017 convener would be announced.
