EAMCET Counselling procedure - 2018
After EAMCET the toughest time for an engineering aspirant comes in the
form of counseling for admission into colleges.Since they have to choose
the course that would stay with them forever, students obviously are
under tremendous pressures.
Authorities, however, make arrangements to ensure that the process is a
smooth affair enabling students to pick course and college without
encountering any problems.
The addition of Kadapa as the 6th centre to the existing centres at
Hyderabad, Vishakapatnam, Guntur, Tirupati and Warangal had helped
students of Rayalaseema region cut down trael expenses and save time.
Counselling would be held simultaneously at all the six centers.
The Department of Technical Education (DTE), which conducts counseling
issues notification in all the major newspapers giving details about
the ranks to be called each day and the certificates to be brought to
the counseling centres various categories.
As per the existing procedure students need to bring their SSC and
Intermediate memoranda of marks, study certificate from 6th class
to Intermeidate, caste cetificte issued by the MRO or RDO , whichever
is applicable and the income certificate. For non-local candidates,
a document certifying 10 years of residence in the State has to be
The rankers invited for the day will first be sent into the waiting hall.
From there, they will be called to the registration counter where the
students will register name, hall ticket number, rank category and time
of reporting and finally affix their signature on the form.
Then they will move to the verification counter where a counselling
officer will check all the original certificates. If the documents
are intact, a sheet will be pinned on the certificates. Students
have to go through a final certification of their documents once again.
A similar procedure will be followed at all the centres in the State.
Candidates will them move to the actual counseling counter.
The counseling officer there will feed the rank and hall-ticket number
into the computer, which will display the seats available in various
courses in all the college for the students to decide. Counselling
officers will also give information about the college, hostel facilities
and the faculty.
The students need to fill in a form giving five options of the courses and
colleges. Based on their choice, the complete information is displayed on
the computer to them. The students need to take the final decision in
consultation with one of the parents allowed to be present at the allotment
The moment candidates write their option, the counseling officer will feed
it into they system that would land in the main server. Options from all
over the State will also land in the main server and the software has been
designed in such a way that the allotment will be done in the sequence
of ranks. The students will be given a chance to verigy all the details
such as the college choosen and course allotted before the allotment
order is cleared.
Once the allotment order is cleared, the students will have to move to
the bank counters of different banks located inside the counseling
centers to pay the prescribed fee. Befor leaving the premises, the
candidates will be given the fee receipt and provisional allotmen t order.
Going by the past experience more than 150 students are allotted seats in
an hour in all the six centers.
Even as the students go through this procedure, they can decide upon their choice
of course and college form the huge screens that display the availability of the
combination of seats, courses and college. The constant update splashed on the
screens help students make up their mind about the stream and college based on
the availability of seats even before they go to the allotment counter.
Candidates need not be apprehensive of lower rank students getting admitted
before the higher ranked students. The software is designed in such a way
that the computer would not accept the allotment if it is not done in the
sequence of ranks. Suppose a 100th ranker in Vishakapatnam moves to the
counseling counter before a 50th ranker in Hyderabad , the computer would
accept the 100th rankers choice only after the 99th rankers choice
The allotment are displayed on the huge secreens giving all details such as
the candidates name , hall-ticket number ,course chosen, category they belong
to and the college preferred. The information splashed simultaneously in all
the counseling centers in the State ensures that no mischief is played while
allotting the seats.
Generally, the general category seats are filled in the first phase
giving chance to every candidate to compete. In the second phase special
category candidates like the children of Armed Personnel (CAP), NCC,
sports and others are called followed by counseling will be held for
the general category again. For details students can look for the
notification in major newspapers.
Local and non-local
There is no reservation for non-locals , as many perceive Non-local students
can only compete for maximum of 15% of seats along with the local candidates.
To put it simply, there cannot be more than 15% of non-local students in any
college even if they get the best ranks. It applies to all three regionsOsmania
University , Andhra University and Sri Venkateshwara University.
