The Andhra Pradesh Government has recently decided to allow non-resident Indian (NRI) students to appear for EAMCET, an entrance examination conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University every year in May on behalf of Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE), required for admission to various engineering and medical colleges in the state. Earlier, the NRI students were not allowed to write EAMCET for the reason that they did not complete their higher secondary education in India.They were allowed to take admission under the management quota or the NRI quota by paying donations. But this decision has helped NRI students to grab a seat in an engineering or medicine college on merit basis.
Andhra Pradesh Government has also decided to give weightage of 25 percent of the marks scored in the intermediate exams in EAMCET which will again help students. The decision would also help parents who would be able to save money as they won't be required to send their children for studies to India from the 8th class onwards. According to reports, several NRI associations have started organizing EAMCET coaching classes so that the students can prepare for entrance exam along with their Class XI and Class XII studies.
