Dear Student,

You will not be eligible to attend the ICET counselling with a backlog. This applies to both TS ICET and AP ICET.

Students with a backlog are allowed to sit for the exam but they must clear any backlogs before the counselling.

This is because proof of passing in graduation is required in the counselling process.

Please feel free to write back if you have any other queries. Apply to MBA colleges easily with the Common Application Form (CAF). For any queries, call 18005729877 and talk to a counsellor.

Thank you.
