Applications for Telangana EDCET 2019 commences on February 28, 2019
Telangana EDCET 2019- As the academic year comes to a close, the applications for the Telangana Education Common Entrance has been scheduled to commence from February 28th, 2019 and would remain open up until April 10, 2019, to help aspirants enrol themselves without any hustle. It is also to be noted that there would not be any late fee applicable during the open time period.
The first test committee was recently held in the capital city of Hyderabad at the Telangana State Council of Higher Education which had transpired events ultimately leading to the decision. Shortly after the meeting, a press release was rolled out by the committee stating that a detailed notification over EDCET would be provided to the open public on February 25th with the date of the exams scheduled to be held on May 31st.
The exam will be held in two different slots with a time span of two hours each. The first slot commences from 11 AM – 1:00 PM while the latter is scheduled from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM Indian Standard Time.
As far as the fee structure is concerned, aspirants from the general category would be burdening an exam fee of INR 650 as opposed to the SC/ST aspirants who would be paying up a relatively lesser INR 450.
Though the entrance fee shifts the scale between the aspirants, a penalty on the late application, however, remains to be treated equally and fairly. The last day of submitting the applications with a minimum penalty of INR 500 would be on April 20 and with every delay in 10days would see a remarkable hike in the penalty. This is something to be taken note of as the submissions on April 30th and beyond would deal with a late fee of INR 1000, and INR 2000 for squeezing in your submissions on May 4th.
Just as last year, Osmania University has been handed over the veil to bear the responsibility of the online examination conducted by the Telangana State Council of Higher Education. Furthermore, the online examination will be held simultaneously at 11 regional centres across the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Two regions – Vijayawada and Kurnool have been identified as the centres in Andhra Pradesh while the rest of the 9 regional centres have been spread across Telangana.
However, it is worth noting that the standard of the entrance exam has increased a bit with the number of qualified aspirants for the year 2019 is poised at 30,606 as to that of last year’s 32,330 who had taken up the exam. To all those 30,606 candidates who are likely to take up this year’s examination, they can expect their results to come in on June 15th, 2019.
