ICET 2012: Decline In Number Of Applicants


The State which is battling with Telangana agitation has not much to cheer about as the things keep worsening year by year. The worst hit are students who are facing troubles with regular bandhs and protests, exams have been delaying and unsurprisingly students looking for PG education are shifting away from the State.

When Career Mitra contacted students in Hyderabad, they have admitted that they will be looking to go for their Masters (MBA or MCA) courses else where. We face serious issues here political situation here isn’t improved it is worsening day by day, we aren’t sure till the last minute whether we have class on that particular day or not. The same happens with exams, you stretch through out the night preparing only to know that the exam has been putoff due to some reasons said Rakesh a final year B.Tech student. Few other students too expressed they are not able to take a decision on whether they should stick with their home state or move out.

Just trying to correlate whether the decline in the applicants for ICET is due to this? ICET-2012 is an Integrated Common Entrance Test (ICET) for admission into M.B.A. and M.C.A. courses of all Universities in Andhra Pradesh and their affiliated colleges. This year as per a report a 10% decline is seen in the number of applicants registered for ICET, a total of 136,000 students have applied for ICET this year. Approximately a total of 160,000 students are available in Andhra Pradesh of which 100,000 seats are for MBA alone.

ICET 2012 will take off on 18 May 2012, it will be of great interest to see of the 136,000 students registered how many will take the test. Usually students done take part even after registering for the exam an approximate 125,000 students can be expected!

Does this hint a sought of recession for Educational Institutes in the State, how do you rate Hyderabad to other top cities like Chennai & Bangalore. Share your views!
