50 percent in Inter compulsory for Engineering Admissions from 2011-12

Starting from this academic year (2011-12), those students secured at least 50 percent marks in Intermediate only will be eligible to get admission in Engineering courses. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has communicated concerned admission authorities in the state that 50 percent marks in Intermediate / 10+2 is a mandatory for admission in engineering colleges. JNTU, the organizing university for EAMCET and Engineering admissions has received instructions from AICTE in this regard.

From EAMCET 2011, students should have 50 percent score in their group subjects (mathematics, physics and chemistry for engineering) in Intermediate. SC / ST candidates need at least 45 per cent marks in group subjects for engineering admissions. The Govt. of Andhra Pradesh has kept minimum marks of 35 percent in Intermediate for admission to engineering colleges. The latest decision is likely to impact at least more than 40000 students in the state. Last year, around 40000 students who secured just 35 percent marks in Intermediate/ 10+2 had admitted in engineering colleges.

As per the latest directive of AICTE, the state government will not be allowed to continue admissions for students with 35 percent marks. The AICTE is claiming that the new rule shall improve quality of technical education. The Govt. of AP had written to AICTE early this month for an exemption from 50 percent marks rule.
