EAMCET regional coordinator G Sambasiva Rao said that for every 20 students, an invigilator is posted; in addition to it, for every 500 students an enforcement officer will be posted at every centre Vijayawada: As many as 76 centres were set up in the city this year for the Engineering, Agriculture and Medicine Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) which is scheduled for May 10. Out of them, engineering aspirants will take the test in 48 centres, while the rest are allotted for the medicine and agriculture aspirants. This year, a special centre would be set up for the aspirants, who are appearing for the test for more than one time, said the Regional Coordinator of EAMCET 2013, G Sambasiva Rao. This year there is an increase in the number of medical aspirants. Ironically, owing to various reasons, the number of engineering aspirants has been down. Around 23,700 students are appearing for the engineering test, while 14,100 are appearing for the medicine in the city alone. The test will be held from 10 am to 1 pm to the engineering aspirants and from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm for the medical aspirants. No electronic gadgets would be allowed inside the exam centres, he cautioned. Sambasiva Rao said, "Special centre for the candidates who have appeared more than once will be set up. We are also planning to set up jammers at the centre. The candidates who are appearing for medical seats will be under tight scrutiny to avoid any malpractice. For every 20 students, an invigilator is posted in addition to it, for every 500 students an enforcement officer will be posted at every centre. Apart from manual frisking, thumb impressions of the candidates will be taken to prevent impersonation," he added
