Telangana Eamcet toppers aim for national institutes

Hyderabad: Toppers in the Telangana State-Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS-EAMCET) plan to join elite educational institutions such as Indian Institutes of Technology and All India Institutes of Medical Sciences for pursuing engineering and medicine courses.

For Kuriseti Ravi Sri Teja who topped both TS and AP EAMCETs, these tests were more like practice exams for the Joint Entrance Examination-Main and Advanced.

Similar views were expressed by D Chandrasekhara SS Hethahavya who secured second rank. He said TS and AP EAMCETs helped him gain speed and accuracy for the national level competitive examinations.

Hethahavya who bagged fourth rank in AP EAMCET and 32nd rank in Joint Entrance Test-Main is confident of a good rank in the JEE-Advanced and hopes to join computer science engineering course at the IIT-Bombay.

Empati Kushwanth of Bhupalpally district in Telangana who topped TS AM stream of the EAMCET said that his college made him appear for both TS and AP EAMCETs. He secured 10th rank in AP EAMCET and 16th rank in the undergraduate entrance exam of the Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research.
