Like last year, the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET-2022) ranks will be calculated without considering the TS Inter or class 12 board exam marks. A total of 25 per cent weightage was given to the intermediate or class 12 final exam marks but it has been eliminated for this year, the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) said.
“The TS EAMCET-2022 ranks will be allotted purely based on the performance (normalized marks) in the TS EAMCET-2022 examination and the 25% weightage for Intermediate marks in the calculation of TS EAMCET-2022 ranks has been waived off as a special case for the academic year 2022-23 similar to the TS EAMCET-2021,” reads the official notice.
In addition, the eligibility criteria too have been changed for this year. The minimum marks to appear in the entrance exam have been waived off. “The minimum eligibility criteria at least 45% of marks (40% in case of candidates belonging to reserved category) in the subjects specified (MPC/ BiPC) taken together at 10+2 pattern) has been relaxed for TS EAMCET-2022 ranking for the academic year 2022-23 similar to TS EAMCET-2021 (G.O.Rt.No.56 (Higher Education (TE) Department),” the notification added.
