The official notification of Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (IIIT) admissions 2019-20 in Andhra Pradesh has been released today. The major reason for the delay in the notification is the lack of clarity on the inclusion of grace marks of 0.4 for students who have completed Class 10 in rural and village-level government schools. The idea was rolled out to give more opportunities for the merit students of government schools. However, a petition was filed in the court against the inclusion of grace marks.
