Left with no other alternative, the Telangana government has scrapped TS EAMCET-II 2016 examination in the wake of question paper leakage reports. Further, the government has called for the conduct of a fresh examination for admission to medical programmes across the state.

The Hindu, reports Chief Minister, K. Chandrasekhar Rao as saying, “It is unfortunate that the question paper got leaked. We are forced to cancel the EAMCET-II examination as we are left with no other choice. Parents of the aspirants should understand our anguish and cooperate in the smooth conduct of EAMCET-III.”

It is expected that a notification, announcing a fresh exam schedule for TS EAMCET will be issued by the conducting authority, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU). Officials of the Telangana Council of Higher Education and JNTU has appointed JNTU Registrar as the new convener of the re-test as the previous EAMCET-II convener has been removed after the confirmation of question paper leakage.


Earlier, the exam conducted on May 15, 2016 for this academic session was not taken into consideration after the Supreme Court’s order of May 9, 2016 on making National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) mandatory for admission to MBBS and BDS seats in the country. Though, after the Central Government introduced the NEET Ordinance on May 24, 2016, allowing states to conduct their own entrance test for this academic session, Telangana reconducted TS EAMCET-II on July 9 and the result was declared on July 14, 2016.


However, following persistent demands by a section of students and their parents suggesting anomalies in the result, the Telangana government ordered a probe by the CID.


Now, the state level entrance exam will be conducted for the third time for admissions to 650 MBBS and BDS seats in Telangana. Going by media reports, if the exam is held in September, students will now have just a month in between to prepare for the retest. Besides, this might seriously delay the starting sessions at medical colleges across the state given that qualifying students have to go through three rounds of counseling before finally beginning their programmes.


No exam fee

The Telangana government has decided to waive off the examination fee for all aspirants. All candidates will be able to take the examination with the admit card of EAMCET-II. Moreover, students appearing in EAMCET-III would be provided free travel by TSRTC buses, the Chief Minister said adding that the study material would be uploaded on the JNTU website.

What is the west Bengal cut off in neet 2020

Apoorva Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

Cut off can't be predicted until exam takes place as there are so many factors helping in to setting cut off marks as number of students appearing, also the difficulty level of the question paper etc. So cut off can't be predicted while you check the previous year's cut off of West Bengal that might be helpful to you. I hope this helps

Best wishes
