HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) chairman P Jayaprakash Rao has said that the council was considering making it mandatory for students to apply for Eamcet only through online.
The APSCHE had introduced the system of applying online last year, but it was not made mandatory.
The online filing of applications had received poor response from the students, where a mere 10,000 students had applied online out of a total 3.35 lakh candidates applied.
Announcing the examination dates of various common entrance tests (CETs)conducted the APSCHE here on Saturday, Rao said there will be no National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and common management admission test (CMAT) this year in the state. All candidates who want to pursue MBBS and MBA have to take Eamcet and ICET respectively for the next academic year.
However, the chairman said there would be no changes in the examination pattern of Eamcet examination. Rao said candidates have to be present at the exam centres much before the commencement of the exam and they would not allow them if they are late by a minute.
The APSCHE chairman said they would also announce the dates of Lawcet and PECET (Physical Education Common Entrance Test) after January 12.
