HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh government has decided to hold a separate entrance test for ‘B’ category (management quota) seats in private medical colleges in the State on May 24, four days ahead of Eamcet.

Over 700 seats would be filled through this separate test in various private medical colleges. Announcing this at a press conference here Tuesday, AP Health Minister Kamineni Srinivas said management quota seats comprise about 35% of the total medical seats and stressed the step was taken after due consultations with all the stakeholders.

He said the test would be conducted under the supervision of the Eamcet convenor, one nominee each from the University of Health Sciences and managements of the private medical colleges.  “Separate entrance exam for ‘B’ category seats will help college managements not only fill the seats in a transparent manner but also in admitting merit students,” Srinivas explained and hastened to add that the fee structure would be as fixed by the government.

“There will be no change in the fee structure. Colleges have to collect the fee fixed by the government,” he clarified.
