Hyderabad, November 15, 2014 (Agencies) Intermediate examinations will be held separately in AP and Telangana States. Bringing an end to uncertainty, the Board of Intermediate Education on Friday released separate tentative examination schedules for TS and AP. Accordingly, the first and second year exams would be held between March 9 and 27, 2015, in Telangana and from March 11 to 31 in AP.

Telangana government clung to its position on holding separate exams for its students, declining the proposal made by AP to conduct joint exams. So, the Board serving as common institution for both States issued two schedules. The release of exam time-table would bring respite to around 12 lakh students who take these examinations annually, as an Eamcet-like row is avoided.

Besides, it believes the move would crop up logistics problems for the organisers to make necessary arrangements before March 2015 deadline. And, any delay would prove costly for those who take national-level competitive exams like IIT-JEE. Among a host of other reasons, it argues that if the exams are held separately, it would be difficult for taking 25 percent weightage of Intermediate marks in Eamcet ranks. The controversy over normalisation of marks is well known at the national-level, like at IIT.

As for Telangana, though there are no specific reasons why separate exams have to be held, the State government feels that it would enable them to make curriculum changes without having to consult AP government. In fact, Telangana government intends to bring in major reforms in Intermediate education.

However, it is to be seen how this would play out in the months to come as Eamcet is inextricably linked to Intermediate exams.
