After completion of 12th, u can apply for ICAR Undergraduate exam and based on your rank you can apply for different universities and take admission in different colleges under that university (college are given by university, you can only choose university) State is also taking exam for local candidates But for ICAR students don't confuse yourself as the ANGRAU university has been divided and shifted from Hyderabad to Guntur AP, after the bifurcation of Telangana state, so the status of this university has been reduced now.
