EAMCET forms from Feb 14, mobile jammers at centres.

HYDERABAD: The AP State Council for Higher Education on Saturday announced the sale of Eamcet application forms from February 14 to April 8 at head post offices, main Andhra Bank branches and eSeva centres. The last date for submission of filled-in application forms is March 16.

However, the forms can also be obtained from the convener’s office from April 9 to May 5 with payment of late fee. This year, Eamcet is scheduled to be held on May 8.

Telephone jammers will be introduced this year at the centres for medical entrance examination. This, officials said, will be done in coordination with the state police and revenue department to prevent irregularities. Last year, extensive use of bluetooth devices was reported at several medical entrance test centres.

“We will ensure that the sensitive centres of Kurnool, Kadapa and Tirupati are closely monitored. Security will be tight and police will guard these centres in mufti,” said D N Reddy, vice-chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru Technical University (JNTU).

With the syllabus for this year’s Eamcet remaining unchanged, officials said that they have made representations to the AICTE chairman to stick to the schedule announced for starting classes. The qualifying marks this year too stands at 25 per cent.

While candidates can submit applications with a late fine of Rs 5,000 till April 25, those submitting it by May 5 have to pay a fine of Rs 10,000.

Candidates submitting their forms with late fees (either with Rs 5,000 or Rs 10,000) will have to appear for the Eamcet only at centres in twin cities, unlike previous years.
