What Do EAMCET Results Speak Up?
Telangana Engineering Agriculture Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) results were out today with 74% in Engineering and 86% students in medical streams qualified.
Boys continued their good run in Engineering bagging most of the top ranks while girls scored well in medical stream.
Interestingly, boys who hailed from Andhra Pradesh region have performed well by bagging six out of the top ten ranks including the first two. Jayant Harsha of Guntur scored 156 out of 160 to become the top ranker while Ram Prasad of Srikakulam who also scored similar marks stood at number two. While the third rank goes to Telangana’s Bharadwaj (155), the fourth one again goes to AP i.e. Shailendra of East Godavari with 155 marks.
Even in agriculture and Pharmacy, five out of ten students were from AP.
It might be recalled that with 153.96 marks out of 160, Telangana student V. Mohan Abhyas stood first in the engineering stream of AP Eamcet 2017. Telangana students bagged three more top ranks in APEAMCET.
Even in JEE Mains and other national level exams, students from both the states have been scoring exceptionally well and sharing top honours. “Bifurcation of the state has no impact on the brilliant students but some bright students will stand to lose due to local-non local issue. They may not get admission in the top ten engineering colleges that too in core branches like CSE” a senior functionary of TS EAMCET said.
Hyderabad continues to enjoy the upper-hand of having the best engineering colleges with good faculty and other infrastructure. Their placement records are also quite good. In that sense, rankers of Telangana will gain more compared to their counterparts of AP.
