|Ensure pass percentage is at least 60 in junior colleges Telangana
Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Kadiyam Srihari has exhorted principals of all 404 Government junior colleges in the state to ensure a pass percentage of at least 60 in the Intermediate public exams 2017. He asked them to hold enrollment drives aggressively so that admissions cross 2 lakh in the next academic year.
He pointed out that enrolment increased by 40,000 students this year compared to 2015. The same spirit should be shown next year also, the minister said.
Mr.Srihari told higher authorities to take steps to conduct study hours in all colleges with only three months remaining for the main exams.
The Education Minister was addressing a workshop for principals of all GJCs held here on Wednesday. He regretted the neglect of Intermediate education in the combined state.
“It is for this reason Telangana government is giving top priority to revive this sector. Funds are being released to improve infrastructure with enough class rooms, practical and computer labs as well as library besides toilet facilities, R.O plant, bio-metric devices, CCTVs etc," he said. The minister suggested principals to take the help of local representatives to extend mid-day meal scheme in colleges.

|Telangana grading system for Intermediate students not up to the mark
Hyderabad,Aug 10 Hyderabad: The Telangana state government’s decision to introduce grading system in the Intermediate exam appears to be at odds with the current set-up.
Eamcet ranks are decided by giving a 25 per cent weightage to the Intermediate marks. This cannot be done clearly if only grades are given to students, as TS proposes to do.
Further, Intermediate weightage is used for rankings in the JEE Main by the Central Board of Secondary Education. If the TS Board of Intermediate Education awards just grades, the CBSE may not accept it. JEE Main gives 40 per cent weightage to Intermediate marks.
Besides, deemed universities use these marks to admit students. While that is so, the government has been considering scrapping Eamcet, arguing that there are more engineering seats than students though that is not the case in medicine.
Marks can still help colleges give admissions but not grades because numerous students would get the same grades.
TS Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari had announced on Friday that the government was considering awarding grades instead of marks, along with online evaluation based on the onscreen marking system.
Asked about these issues, Mr Srihari said, “The idea is still in the proposal stage. We have not taken a decision to do it. We are looking at all these aspects. It is meant to take the pressure off students.”
Dr P. Madhusudhan Reddy, president, Government Junior Lecturers Association, said, ?It is an absurd idea. Agreed you can scrap the 25 per cent weightage in Eamcet but what about JEE and deemed universities?
One idea could be to equate each grade with marks and use that for weightage. But that would put meritorious students at a loss.
|Telangana Intermediate grading to start from 2016
Hyderabad,Aug 8 Hyderabad: The Telangana state government will implement the grading system of marking in Intermediate first and second years.
Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari said the CBSE system of answer sheet evaluation, whereby all sheets are scanned and examined through the Onscreen Marking System (OMS), will be adopted.
He said the government was studying the modalities of the implementation and, if possible, the new system will be implemented from the 2016 exams itself.
Mr Srihari said the government and Telangana Board of Intermediate Education were studying the modalities.
Interestingly, though CBSE is employing the OMS, it still awards marks to XII class students along with relative grading.
The state board, meanwhile, awards just grades instead of marks for tenth exams.
The Deputy Chief Minister did not say if the grading would be absolute or relative like that followed in CBSE’s Class XII.
The government is also planning on introducing of the OMS. But it would be much harder to implement considering the sheer volume of answer sheets that are generated in the Intermediate exams.
Mr Srihari also said that the KG to PG scheme would be divided into three segments. “First segment is KG to Class IV, second would be from Class V to XII and the third would be from graduation and postgraduation study.”
He said 1190 residential schools would be made operational, with 10 such schools in each constituency and vice-chancellors to all universities would be appointed in four months.
This, however, is at odds with the HC directive, which had granted the Telangana state government just three months to appoint V-Cs.

|Education ministers fail to reach consensus on Inter exams
Hyderabad,Oct 29 Despite a nearly four-hour meeting between Telangana education minister T Jagadeeshwar Reddy and Andhra Pradesh HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao, the two sides could not arrive at a consensus over the Intermediate Public Examinations - 2015. While the Telangana government was steadfast about conducting a separate Inter exam in the state, the AP government was of the view that it would be advisable to conduct a common exam so that no issues crop up for the Eamcet exam later. While Jagadeeshwar Reddy, after the meeting held at the Board of Intermediate Education
office here on Monday, said that the Telangana government sees no problem if the students of the two states appear for separate exams as it would not affect the common Eamcet examination, Srinivasa Rao hoped the T state would agree for a common Inter exam. The ministers are expected to meet again in three days to try and sort out the differences. Meanwhile, the Telangana Government Junior College Lecturers Association said they do not want 20 lakh students to suffer because of differences between the two states. "Since the Telangana government has set up a new intermediate board, it should be allowed to conduct a separate examination. Even if a common Eamcet were to be conducted, the two states can take into account their respective intermediate board results for weightage, just like
IITs and NITs use the board marks of students from over the country," said P Madhusudan Reddy, president of the association. He added that if the AP government continues to root for a common examination, the Inter exam would be delayed. "The board has not even started preparing for the exam. Any further delay in coming to a consensus will only delay the exam that is held in March," he said.

|No dissection for BiPC this year on
Hyderabad,Nov 12 Intermediate science students appearing for practical exams this year need not do dissection of earthworms, cockroaches, frogs and so on from this year onwards.
The Board of Intermediate Education has decided to abolish dissection as directed by the Union Environment Ministry and the University Grants Commission. Intermediate practical exams are scheduled from the first week of February 2014.
Dissection has been an integral part of the exam for second year BiPC students. Now, they will have to draw the parts of insects and identify the parts exhibited through slides on the display board, as the environment ministry believes dissection to be a cruel practice.
The practicals still carry 30 marks. Earlier, 5 marks were awarded for dissection and another 5 marks for drawing and identification of parts of the insect.
Under the new system, 6 marks will be awarded for drawing, 14 marks for identifying the parts displayed through slides, 5 marks for record book writing and 5 marks for practicals.
“Orders with regard to doing away with dissection in practical exams will be issued soon. There is shortage of cockroaches and earthworms. It has also become a problem for colleges to obtain them for practicals. Moreover, the Centre had issued guidelines abolishing dissection,” said Rama Sankar Naik, secretary, BIE.
The board has also decided to introduce modern pedagogical tools in colleges such as computer-based multimedia simulators, virtual labs, specialised interactive CDROMs, films, charts and videos of dissections performed by experts.

|Inter Admission process more than 50,000 add up this year
Hyderabad,Sep 14 The admission process for first year Intermediate courses has ended after five extensions of last date. The total number of students enrolled both in government and private junior colleges this year was 9.51 lakhs, which is 50,000 more than last year. This means, if students of outside study are also included, more than 10 lakh students would appear for annual exams to be held in April 2014.
A total of 88.08 per cent of students in regular category have passed in the exams registering a 0.24 percent increase compared to last year (87.84%). Government schools have recorded an impressive 80.28 pass percentage and the schools which function under various government departments like Zilla parishad, Municipal, Social, Tribal welfare, Gurukul etc have also performed quite well compared to last few years. Private schools too fared well with 92.69 percentage. In addition, 51.49% of candidates of those who appeared for the SSC Advanced Supplementary Examinations have also passed. All this contributed to increase in admissions into first year Intermediate.
There was a marked increase in the admissions under science and commerce streams this year where as for Arts subjects, there was not much progress, compared to last year.
But academics take a big jolt as staff of almost all government junior colleges and majority of private junior colleges in 13 seemandhra districts have been on strike for the past 31 days against the decision to divide the state. The fresh students could not even attend for classes for a week when the agitations started.”This is bound to affect their studies in a big way as Intermediate is turning point in anybody’s career. There were no classes, no practicals” Janakirama Kolluru, a senior faculty of St. Mary College in Visakhapatnam told The Hans India.
The revised syllabus was enforced from this year in full measure in both first and second year and students do need the help of lecturers. “They will be way behind the students of Class XI and Class XII of CBSE syllabus if they don’t follow the new syllabi. Eventually, it would have a telling effect on the results of national level exams at the end of senior Inter i.e. 2015” Dr V R Muralikrishna, a faculty at Narayana College said.
The competition will also be more in the next two years with the increase in number of students- especially for tech courses. The CBSE has given only a one time waiver this year for students of Andhra Pradesh with regard to computing plus two marks while making final merit lists of JEE Mains since the syllabus was not revised in the state at that time. From 2014 onwards, the marks of both first and second year Intermediate would be taken into account while calculating the weightage marks.
|Separate ranks for Inter Supplementary
Hyderabad,Jul 26 The Eamcet Committee has announced separate ranks for all those who have passed both in the entrance test and Intermediate Advanced Supplementary Examinations in Hyderabad on 24th July. A total of 20,779 fresh rankers have now being added up in addition to earlier ones. Students can download their ranks from the EAMCET website.
Out of these 20,779, as many as 16,363 were of engineering stream and the remaining 4,416 belonged to medical stream. “All these students will have separate ranks and have nothing to do with the regular rankers i.e. no addition with points which was thought of earlier,” Prof. N.V. Ramanarao, the Convener of Eamcet said.
A total of 2,76,995 students have appeared for Eamcet engineering and out of them 2,01,308 candidates were qualified. The Advance Supplementary students were now allotted ranks from 2,01,309 to 2,17,672.
Similarly in medical and agricultural stream, a total of 80,779 students were qualified. The Supplementary candidates were allotted ranks from 80,780 to 85,195.
These supplementary students will be allowed to participate from the first phase of engineering counselling onwards, Prof Ramana Rao, told The Hans India. But he made it clear that their turn would commence only after the regular students’ counselling. Since medical counselling has already started, the students can participate depending upon their rank and choice, he added.

|Inter improvement exam tomorrow
Hyderabad,May 21 The weightage for Intermediate marks in JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) has led to a huge rush to appear for improvement exams this year with over 3.29 lakh Inter first-year students applying. Supplementary exams will begin on May 22.
More than 10.13 lakh students have registered for supplementary exams this year, including first and second year students. Of them, 6.89 lakh are first year and 3.24 lakh are second-year students.
Of the 6.89 lakh first-year students, 3.29 applied for improvement exams, while the rest are failed students.
There is no scope for second-year students to appear for improvement exams. Secretary of Board of Intermediate Education Ram Shankar Naik said that supplementary exams of all major papers will conclude on May 28. Exams will be held in two sessions from 9 am to 12 noon and 2.30pm to 5.30 pm every day.
Marks secured in Intermediate exams assume significance from this year with the decision to give 40 per cent weightage for these marks in JEE (Main) while determining ranks for admission to NITs, IIITs, etc.
Besides, these marks also play a crucial role in gaining eligibility for admissions to IITs, since students who secure ranks in JEE (Advanced) should also figure in the top-20 percentile list of the respective 10+2 board exams to be eligible for admission in IITs.
