Eamcet weightage after inter supplementary results: Minister

Andhra Pradesh Minister for Secondary Education K Parathasarathy today said that the Eamcet weightage marks and ranks would be allotted only after the declaration of intermediate second year supplementary results. Talking to reporters after holding a meeting with the officials of Higher Education Department and later with Deputy Chief Minister Damodar Rajanarasimha, the Minister said the Eamcet results would be announced on May 24 followed by announcement of ranks. The students appearing for supplementary or improvement need not worry as the marks they would secure in the supplementary exams would be considered for giving weightage for Eamcet, the Minister clarified. The decision will help over one lakh second year inter students as 31 per cent students had failed in physics, several thousands more secured low marks, prompting the government to allow them to write the improvement exam. The students will be treated on par with other students.
