Hyderabad: Upgradation of syllabus of Intermediate second year is going to pose some tense moments for the students appearing for EAMCET on Thursday (May 22). Aspirants of medical stream may have to toil hard as both chemistry and botany are expected to be hard nut to crack since there has been huge difference between the old and new syllabus, according to experts.
Those who have been taking long term coaching may have to concentrate more on academy books this time, experts opined. “There is nearly 45 per cent of additional syllabus which is totally new in botany. In case of chemistry- both in organic and physical- the change is roughly about 10 per cent,” they said. It is not going to be so easy, they averred.
Most of the paper setters have been preparing questions basing on the SCERT syllabus in academy books. It could be around 80 per cent of questions, an analysis showed.
Long term coaching is going to be beneficial in one sense that the students in both the streams get complete grip over the subject, it said. “As many as 8000 seats out of 10,000 seats that are available in both medical and dental colleges are being secured by students taking long term coaching. It remains to be seen how many students who have been taking that long term coaching will crack EAMCET medical,” PVRK Murthy of Gayatri Group of Institutions said.
Meanwhile, aspirants have been totally engrossed in preparation for the key exam, conducted by the JNTU- Hyderabad. Though the engineering stream has lost all charm, medical stream has gained new colour and popularity this year which was demonstrated by number of applicants.
In engineering, the total number of available seats has been one lakh more than the number of aspirants.
