Telangana Government Postponed All Entrance Exams

The government on June 30 announced postponement of all the entrance examinations for admission into various courses in the state due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the region. 

Telangana government decided to postpone various entrance exams. The government on June 30 announced postponement of all the entrance examinations for admission into various courses in the state. According to the reports, these entrance exams were scheduled to commence from July 1.

The media reports suggest that an affidavit to this effect is submitted by the government in the state high court, which was hearing a public interest litigation petition filed by National Students Union of India (NSUI) Telangana unit president Venkat Balmoor.

The state government mentioned in the affidavit that the decision to postpone entrance exams is taken in the wake of the proposal to re-impose complete lockdown in Hyderabad and the increasing number of COVID-19 cases.

Telangana government postponed the entrance tests such as Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Entrance Test (EAMCET), POLYCET (entrance for polytechnic courses), Integrated Common Entrance Test (ICET for admission into MBA and MCA courses), ECET (Engineering Entrance Test meant for lateral entry for polytechnic students into engineering courses), PGCET (common entrance for post-graduate courses in various universities), PECET (entrance test for physical education courses), LAWCET (common entrance test for admission into law colleges) and EDCET (common entrance test for admission into education colleges) that were originally scheduled to be held from July 1.

On June 9, Venkat questioned in the PIL, the proposal to conduct the entrance exam amid rising COVID-19 cases.

The high court questioned the government about their plans to re-impose the lockdown in the state. Later in the afternoon, the government submitted the affidavit stating the postponement of all the examinations indefinitely.

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Telangana government already cancelled the TS SSC Board Exams 2020 and declared the TS SSC Results 2020 by promoting all the students based on their internal assessment marks.
