The counselling will be conducted across 22 helpline centres of Andhra Pradesh. The colleges which are offering MBA/MCA courses in East and West Godavari districts were affiliated to Andhra University till last academic year. This year, all these colleges are affiliated to Adikavi Nannaya University. However, most of the parents and students are aspiring to study in national level institutions like IIM's. The reason is most of the colleges in AP lack proper facilities. There are lots of demand for MBA/MCA seats in deemed universities.
The changing opinions among parents and students also affected the engineering admissions. Only 63% of engineering seats have been filled in Andhra Pradesh where deemed universities recorded 100 percent admissions.
