‘Postponement will hit the schedule of engineering admissions'
Parties urged to allow conduct of Eamcet even if they call for bandh
Hyderabad: The Eamcet-2010 Committee has decided to go ahead with the test as per schedule on May 30 though a bandh has been called on the day before the exam in the Telangana region.
Eamcet Committee Chairman D.N. Reddy said all arrangements had been made and it was difficult to postpone the test expecting bandhs or violence. “We hope that there will not be any bandhs on the exam day,” he said adding that the material had been sent to the districts and it was not safe to keep in remote centres for a longer period. Moreover, it would be very difficult to find hundreds of test centres again.
Authorities feel that if they are forced to postpone the Eamcet, it will hit the entire schedule of engineering admissions. More over, as per the High Court suggestion, the test has to be conducted on a holiday for the convenience of students. Students will also be writing other entrance tests of the country on different dates. “Taking all these factors into consideration, it will be very difficult to postpone the test,” he said.
Prof. Reddy also requested the political parties and the Telangana groups to spare conduct of Eamcet if they call for a bandh or protests on the exam day.
Meanwhile, the bandh call given by the Telangana JAC forced the postponement of several exams. Osmania University postponed the MBA paper-I of fourth semester and second semester Java programme paper of BCA second year.
