HYDERABAD: The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University- Hyderabad authorities and higher education officials are planning to finish engineering and medical counselling early this time, so that first year classes can begin by July 15.
The officials were forced to consider completing the counselling process quickly as college managements felt that the delay is leading to many students migrating to other states.
Officials say that the counselling process gets prolonged every year due to the delay by AICTE to renew certification to existing colleges and give approval to new ones and the wait for advanced supplementary exam results.
This subsequently led to delay in commencement of classes.
K Raghunath, camp officer of CET admissions said they will submit a memorandum to AICTE requesting them to complete the approval process by end of May.
Another cause of delay is the wait for the Inter advanced supplementary exam results.
Raghunath said they will discuss with BIE officials for either announcing the Inter supplementary results by the end of May or excluding these students from the first phase of counselling.
“However, the candidates who pass the exam can participate in the second phase of counselling,” he said.
