Telangana High Court has directed the state government to postpone all the common entrance tests (CETs) in the state. As per reports, A PIL was filed by Venkat Balmoor, President, NSUI Telangana, for postponement of all CETs in the state of Telangana. HC asked the government if it is planning another lockdown in the state then how the state-level CETs will be held.
To this, the court gave its decision and directed the government to postpone all CETs. The postponement of the exams has not been officially announced. However, it is expected that TSCHE will announce it soon on tsche.ac.in
In our earlier report “TS EAMCET 2020 Admit Card Releasing on 1 July; Will Exam Be Postponed Too?“, we included the discomfort of the students on appearing for TS EAMCET amidst COVID-19. Now that HC has directed to postpone the exam, students seem relieved. They took over social media to thank NSUI and welcomed the HC’s order of postponing all CETs in the state.
