Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) Hyderabad has decided to remove the English-only question paper for the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture, and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET) 2023.
The questions for the exam which is scheduled to be held from May 7 to 11 will be either in English-Telugu or English-Urdu versions. Earlier it used to be in exclusive English too.
Reason for removal of exclusive English question paper in TS EAMCET 2023
As TS EAMCET is conducted in various sessions, there is a possibility that question papers can be of various difficulty levels. In order to ensure that no student should be at disadvantage, the scores of the students are normalized.
While normalizing the scores, marks scored by candidates are checked session-wise and the marks of candidates are either slightly reduced or increased based on the difficulty level of the question paper.
In the past few years, it was witnessed that most urban students are opting for exclusive English question papers in the TS EAMCET and scoring high when compared to average marks scored by rural candidates who are either opting for English-Telugu or English-Urdu version.
After witnessing this trend, JNTU Hyderabad which is conducting the entrance test on behalf of the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) decided to remove the English-only question paper for TS EAMCET 2023.
