Students who are to appear for the second-year Intermediate Public Examination will have to be content with the marks obtained in the main examination in their first attempt for competing in various entrance tests which give weightage to the score in the qualifying examination.
Speaking on the sidelines of a press conference held to announce the schedule of practical examinations, Board of Intermediate Education secretary Rama Sankar Naik said the results would be declared by April 25. In case of revaluation and recounting, the results are likely to take another month and the final marks will be awarded by the end of May to be considered as a criterion for competitive examinations.
The Indian Science and Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) is scheduled for April 7 but the EAMCET results will be declared on June 6. Therefore, the marks to be obtained by them in the advanced supplementary examination or ‘improvement’ examinations will not be considered for competitive examinations because of delay.
To be eligible for advanced test under ISEET for admission to IITs, the candidates have to figure in the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examination.
