The state government of Telangana has informed about its decision to relax the eligibility criteria for the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Entrance Common Entrance Test, TSEAMCET 2020. The GO 201 issued in this regard was issued on October 29, 2020.
The order has come as a relief to those students who could not score 45 per cent in 10+2 exams of the state which are minimum qualifying marks for admissions. The general trend followed till date was to add weightage of 45 per cent (general category) and 40 per cent (reserved category) in the HSE exams conducted to the qualifying exams. The move of doing away with the qualifying marks is only for this year.
