The Andhra Pradesh EDCET-2016 admission counselling which is scheduled to commence from 27-July-2016 has been postponed to 8-August-2016. The reason for the postponement is most of the B.Ed colleges failed to send the details of their colleges to the Universities and this lead to a delay in the confirmation of fee structure. The convener of AP EDCET Mr Kumara Swamy gave details about the revised schedule of counselling.
- The verification of certificates will commence on 8-August-2016 and continues till 10-August-2016.
- The process of choosing web options will take place from 9-August-2016 to 11-August-2016.
- The seats will be allotted on 16-August-2016.
- The classes for the first year students will commence from 17-August-2016.
There has been a much delay for the EDCET counselling. The AP EDCET examination was held on 23-May-2016. It has been two months since the completion of the examination and the authorities failed the conduct the counselling.
This year, the EDCET examination received poor response across the 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh. The main reason is the government increased the duration of course for two years and the Andhra Pradesh government is taking up rationalising the teachers in government schools which don't give scope for recruitment of new teachers. The examination received poor response especially in Krishna, Guntur and Prakasam districts.
