Aspirants hope AUCET to provide bright future
andidates for Andhra University Common Entrance Test (AUCET-2019) and Andhra University Engineering Entrance Test (AUEET-2019) came in large numbers at examination centres on Thursday in the city.
Visakhapatnam: Candidates for Andhra University Common Entrance Test (AUCET-2019) and Andhra University Engineering Entrance Test (AUEET-2019) came in large numbers at examination centres on Thursday in the city. With test centres only in Visakhapatnam, Kakinada and Vijayawada for AUEET, candidates from Srikakulam, Narsipatnam and Vizianagaram came to city for the test.
B Ajay, a candidate from Srikakulam, said "I came here to write AUEET for the six-year integrated course in bio-technology. Though there are private varsities which offer the same course, I feel AU is better because it's a government university and the fee structure is also within the reach of common man."
While parents along with their wards showed up at the examination centres, there are also grandmothers who dragged themselves to cheer their grandchildren. K Annapurna, a 70-year-old woman accompanied her granddaughter to the test centre at Gayatri Vidya Parishad College in MVP Colony. She said, "Since it's a weekday my son and daughter-in-law are busy with their respective jobs.
I was afraid of the facilities which will be provided at the test centre but now I'm satisfied. I hope the paper will be easy so that my little girl gets a seat in the University for CSE." While most candidates expressed their satisfaction with the facilities and arrangements made by the university, few complained that time limit of 90 minutes can be stressful for some.
M Akhil Gopi, MA Telugu aspirant from Guntur, said, "I think atmosphere can play a key role in keeping our mind fresh during any exam. I opted for Visakhapatnam because of its beauty and serenity. But, to be realistic it is difficult to fill the OMR sheet within the given time."
The candidates felt that referring to previous years' question papers would help a lot during the preparation for an entrance test. Andhra University officials stated that 4,410 out of 5,177 candidates and 2,790 out of 3,196 candidates have appeared for AUCET and AUEET respectively on Thursday.
