However, in the context of State bifurcation, Osmania University sought the clarification from both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Governments with regard to the conduct of SET 2014 and both the governments have given Osmania University their concurrence and approval for the conduct of SET-2014.
The University Grants Commission, New Delhi suggested that the combined result has to be prepared for the candidates of both the States i.e. Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and the cut-off marks are to be determined for both the States as a whole.
The criteria to be adopted for determining the cutoff marks and declaration of results should remain the same as it was done in 2013. Further, it was suggested that SET should issue the certificates reflecting the fact that it is a common SET for both the States.
