With a successful admission to 50,000 children in 600 state government run residential schools without any entrance test following Right to Education Act, Andhra Pradesh has raised the spirits of the other states. Andhra residential schools, which have been consistently producing good results, have even given reservation higher than 25% stipulated under the RTE Act. Dr D Sambasiva Rao, Secretary, Secondary Education, Andhra Pradesh explained that although at first exams were being conducted for admissions to schools but with the act coming into power, screening was prohibited in accordance to the act and RTE was executed.

In case of non-residential schools, the ministry has decided that while 25% reservation to children of economically weaker sections will be given without any screening and on the basis of random selection through draw of lots, for the remaining 75%, there will be a rational system of categorisation.
