Hyderabad: Private varsities admitting students ahead of EAMCET
Lower fee, no donations attract students from both Telugu states
Hyderabad : Are private universities taking students from both the Telugu states for a ride?
The private universities in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and the National Capital Region (NCR) are attracting students from the two Telugu states for admission into various courses. The catch here is that the admission process has been rolled out much before the students got their results from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Boards of Intermediate Education (BIEs), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Board for the Indian School Certificate Examination results.
Speaking to Hans India, S Sirisha said, "There are many students like her who want to pursue courses outside the two Telugu states. Particularly, those who have scored good marks in the intermediate but failed to get admission under the Convenor quota in the university and government institutions."
J Ramana Reddy, a private employee from Kothapet said, "My son got distinction and wants to take admission in B Tech in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI&ML). But he could not get a good rank to get a seat under the Convenor quota." Even a 'B' rank engineering colleges are demanding donations ranging from Rs 6 lakh onwards. "To complete a four-year B Tech degree with a specialisation in robotics, cybersecurity, AI and ML, Data Sciences it would cost around Rs 15 to Rs 20 lakh in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh," pointed out Ch Parthasarathi, a practising internal tax auditor from AS Rao Nagar.
Against this backdrop, private universities see a good opportunity to take the best of the students ahead of the 10+2 results published by the boards. The private universities are conducting entrance tests for admissions ahead of the EAMCET. The students' admission will be based on the entrance marks, subject to qualifying in the 10+2 examinations.
The students who qualified in the entrance tests were asked to deposit Rs 25,000 to Rs 75,000 to confirm their seats. "The fees for the same streams in B Tech are less when compared with the donation and other fees collected by the colleges in Telugu states. "Other than the fact that my daughter would be away from home, other facilities the private universities extending during her studies are even more in some cases," said Parthasarathi.
