Telangana EAMCET results nowhere in sight after inter exam fiasco, students jittery
With delay at BIE's end coupled with AP EAMCET results being announced on Tuesday, students are going to be put through excruciating wait yet again
Though verification is over with all its goof-ups, the wait for students who appeared for EAMCET is not ending anytime soon. The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education has not yet sent the marks of the students who appeared for re-verification to the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H) for it to process and release the results.
With delay at BIE's end coupled with AP EAMCET results being announced on Tuesday, students are going to be put through excruciating wait yet again. It may be recalled Telangana State Council of Higher Education had directed JNTU-H to withhold EAMCET results till BIE released the results of re-verification. Sources in the BIE reveal that the Board has sought another two days time to process the results of the remaining 889 students — next two days being holidays on account of Eid-ul-Fitr, TSEAMCET won't be released anytime before next week since after receiving the marks JNTU will have to process it by giving 25 per cent weight to intermediate marks. On May 27 when BIE had released the re-verification results, it had withheld the results for 19,788 students and had said that these would be released later. Of these 889 are still pending.
With AP EAMCET refusing to wait any longer in announcing its results, students from Telangana who have been waiting for both results so that they can compare and choose the better options are now going to be anxious until TSEAMCET results are announced. Telangana State Council Higher Education (TSCHE) however has assured students and parents not to panic. "No student will be put to disadvantage. Parents and students should not panic as we have ample time to release the results and conduct counselling. As per the academic schedule, the classes will commence from August 1," said Prof V Venkata Ramana, vice-chairman, TSCHE.
Meanwhile, with BIE the Intermediate Public Advanced Supplementary Examinations (IPASE) just around the corner — commencing from June 7 and ongoing till June 14 — complaints of errors in the hall tickets have started trickling in. "In some instances the hall tickets issued to the students had the marks printed instead of the subjects in which they had compartments. In addition, vocational candidates as well as those under the Category 4, i.e., students who failed last year, still have not received their hall tickets," said a government junior lecturer on the condition of anonymity.
These problems coupled with the fact that Glaobarena Technologies would continue to offer the software assistance with Datatech Methodex parallelly processing the results and JNTU Hyderabad offering a supervisory role in the whole exercise of IPASE is once again giving jitters to students and worrying teachers. A government junior lecturer, who did not wish to be named said IPASE results will be a repeat of the IPE (March) results. "When we know the data collected before the March exam was corrupt and yet use it again for the supplementary examinations, errors are bound to throw up. All the technical assistance by an independent agency or JNTU is futile when the data being used is erroneous," he added.
