HYDERABAD: At a time when joining a coaching institute is seen as a first step to crack any exam, a boy from Sircilla town in Karimnagar has scored first rank in the TSICET-2016 exam without having coaching whatsoever.

G Varun, a native of Karimnagar district, scored 154 marks in the ICET exam, whose results were announced on Tuesday. “I never felt the need to go to any coaching institute. For me practice and time management were important and that is what helped me in cracking the exam. One week before the exam, I started solving previous year papers and that helped me a lot,” Varun said. Varun, who did his BSC from Nizam College, said that he would prepare for Civil Services simultaneously with MBA. As many as 63,549 candidates qualified in the exam and among the top 20 ranks, 13 were from Telangana, 6 from AP and one from Maharashtra. 


The TSICET-2016 was attended by 66,510 students, of which 95.55 students qualified. In the top 20 ranks, only four girls were able to find the spot, while the remaining 16 positions were held by boys.  “I want to follow my brother’s footsteps and just like him I want to get a government job. Simultaneously while preparing for ICET, I was also preparing  for other government jobs and would continue my preparation,” K Archana, who secured state 5th rank in ICET, said.

Students can download rank cards from June 3 onwards.  For the second time, TSICET exam was conducted by Kakatiya University, Warangal.
