HYDERABAD: No changes have been made to the admission process for the integrated B.Tech courses at the Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (RGUKT) for the academic year 2015-16. This year, the seats will be allotted based on the merit of candidates in SSC public exams, said Prof S Sathyanarayana, Vice-Chancellor, RGUKT.

The university, which is going to conduct separate admissions for Telangna and Andhra Pradesh, is all set to issue the notification for this academic year on May 25. Students with eligible score in Class X can apply for the integrated B.Tech courses by filling the online application form.

Around 3,000 seats are up for grabs in the three constituent institutes of RGUKT at Basar in Adilabad district, Nuzivid in Krishna district and Idupulapaya in Kadapa district respectively. Each of these institutes offers around 1,000 seats in the six-year integrated B.Tech courses and the admission process will be done in June.

Students from both the States can apply for admission into any of the three campuses. The university allotted 15 per cent of the seats to non-locals, which means students from TS are eligible to get admission in Nuzivid and Idupulapaya campuses under the non-local category and AP students can get admission in Basar campus as well. As per earlier guidelines, students from non-residential government schools like Zilla Parishad schools and municipal high schools will be given weightage of 0.4 points which will be added to their grades in SSC exams.

 Statutory quotas for students from SC, ST communities and women will also be applicable. There are quotas for the disabled, NCC, sportspersons and children of armed personnel as well, RGUKT officials said.
