Hyderabad: Students in both Andhra and Telangana, who are due to appear for the Intermediate examinations a few months from now are in a fix. The exam schedule has been announced alright and a separate board too has been constituted in the recent past. But issues regarding the continuation of EAMCET and weightage of marks scored for competitive examinations like JEE (owing to separate examinations to be held by the respective governments) continue to be unresolved.
Given that the higher secondary stage- 10+2 - is a very critical time in a student’s career, the worries of their families are justified. With the local mediator, the Governor, proving unsuccessful in resolving the issues between the KCR and Naidu governments, the centre is carefully outweighing all angles before pronouncing its judgment.
That it has a mind of its own was made known to the TRS government when the local airport was named after NTR despite strong protests by the Telangana supporters. Telangana based students have been flocking to the neighbouring cities in Andhra Pradesh for many years now, Vijayawada and Guntur being the most preferred ones.
If media reports are to believed, the numbers now are anywhere between 25,000 to 50,000 students. Whatever comes through in the next few months is going to set off a series of comparative evaluations on the performance of the students.
