V.G. Narasimha Kumar of Vizianagaram, Marelli Uday Kiran from Karwan in Hyderabad, and Bandaru Sirisha of Visakhapatnam (both belonging to BC "B'' category), and Kuchimanchi N.V.S. Raju of Mulagapudi in East Godavari district, topped in mathematics, physical science, biological science and social studies respectively.
While releasing the ranks, Prof. Simhadri announced that for the first time online counselling for admission to colleges of education would be introduced in this academic year, as per the recommendations made by the expert committee for EdCET-2002. Online counselling would ensure transparency and help in completing the admission process quickly. Modalities for the online counselling would be worked out with experts having experience in the process, he said. As per the recommendation of the expert committee, which scrutinised the responses received for the EdCET key and finalised the key for evaluation, 14 questions (five in geography, three in botany, two each in general English, general knowledge, chemistry and civics and one each in physics, history and economics) were deleted and one mark was added to each question.
The 14 were in addition to the four questions deleted earlier. As many as 3,503 complaints were received after the initial key was announced.
The Convener in-charge of EdCET-2002, Y.F.W. Prasada Rao, said that the candidates whose results were kept under the "announced later'' category were required to approach the regional coordinators on or after September 18 and furnish the information required in a prescribed format on for before September 28. The genuineness and eligibility of the candidates for releasing their results would be decided after they submitted the details in the prescribed format.
It may be recalled that the test was held on June 16 (at 638 centres in 34 places) amid a lot of allegations that several thousand students could not appear as the hall tickets were not issued to them in time. However, the AU which conducted the test this year denied the same.
Of the 2,58,747 applicants, 2,34,263 appeared for the test and 89 per cent (2,09,093, including 76,169 women) of them had qualified, said Prof. Prasada Rao.
