The DIETCET 2012 counseling is likely to be conducted from the last week of November 2012. The Department of Primary Education has issued notification for the filling up of D.Ed seats in 121 private D.Ed colleges for the academic year 2012-13.
It is observed that about 100 old colleges are yet to get approvals. Another 250 colleges are also waiting for the government approvals. Several malpractices have also been reported in the recent inspections in the colleges. The details of colleges available for the counseling is not clear till the date.
The DIETCET 2012 authorities are planning to start counseling and admissions from 26th or 28th November 2012. The final dates and counseling procedures are likely to be announced on 16th November 2012.
There is an increasing competition for the DIETCET 2012 as the D.Ed candidates only allowed to appear for the Secondary Grade Teacher posts in Andhra Pradesh. The Supreme Court has recently ordered that all the SGT posts should be allocated to D.Ed qualified candidates. This has resulted in the increase of competition for D.Ed course.
