They said it was a total injustice on the part of the state to give them a minimum score of 35% in every subject. “I don’t think we can take professional courses with these grades,” said S Madhu Brahma, an MPC student registered with TOSS.
The students said many of them intended to be admitted to BSc, BCom, and BA courses, but now it looks like a distant dream.
“Even though there is no restriction on the admission of degrees, places are filled with grades. If grades are taken into account, we are at the receiving end,” said Md Abdul Sarfaraz, a CEC student who wants to apply for BA admission.
SSC students also pointed out that unlike regular students, they received minimum grades, which made it difficult for them to get admission to a decent intermediate college. Student leaders said that giving around 40-45% of grades would have made it easy for students during admission. “Even at universities for college graduates and college graduates, they still have to take seats because they have minimal grades,” said Venkat Balamuri, president of the NSUI. TOSS director S Venkateswara Sharma said that only 1,800 out of 35,000 advanced students will appear for EAMCET.
