Hyderabad: The process of online applications of Engineering Agricultural Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) will commence from Thursday. Candidates can now log on to www.apeamcet.org for filling and uploading their applications.
Candidates can do it from any internet cafe or from their home. Those who are not completely aware of the procedure, can do it from the nearest engineering college or regional EAMCET centre.
Students have to pay Rs 250 as registration fee at AP ONLINE or E-Seva or Mee Seva counters. “After filling the online application form with the required details, the candidate is required to verify all the details carefully and submit it. Filled in online application form will be generated which contains registration number along with filled in details,” Dr NV Ramana Rao, Convener of EAMCET told The Hans India.
“The candidate should take printout of filled in online application form and it is to be submitted to the invigilator during the examination after affixing a recent colour photograph attested by the gazetted officer or principal of the college where he/she studied the qualifying examination. Students should use the registration number for future correspondence,” he informed.

With a fine of Rs 500, up to April 18, with Rs 1000 fine, up to April 25, with Rs 5000 fine, up to May 5 and with a late fee of Rs 10,000, they can upload up to May 14. “According to a rough estimate, 4.15 lakh students may apply for EAMCET this year. A total of 62 per cent of students from MPC stream and 53 per cent of students from BiPC stream who would pass the Intermediate examination this year may apply,” Ramana Rao said.
Students can correct any mistakes in their applications between April 6 and 13.
The exam will be held on May 17. This date is likely to change in accordance with the election schedule, according to EAMCET authorities. If there is no clash with the polling days, which are likely to be announced in another ten to fifteen days, the dates will not be altered.
A meeting of regional coordinators of EAMCET will be held on Thursday to discuss about the centres, Ramana Rao said.
While filling up the online application, the candidates should select the required regional centre or zone in case of Hyderabad of his choice. Once he or she chooses the centre, it cannot be changed and no requests in this regard would be entertained, Ramana Rao made it clear.
Moreover, the EAMCET convener reserves the right to allot the candidates to any Regional Centre other than that opted by the candidates, depending upon the number of applicants.
Another important aspect is candidates should not submit more than one application for any stream i.e. for ‘E’ or ‘AM’ or ‘E&AM’ category test.
“If any candidate submits more than one application for one category, the Convener reserves the right to reject all the applications or accept any one of them only,” said Ramana Rao.
