Bhadrachalam: The Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test-2016 would be conducted in a foolproof manner in Telangana State on May 2, said Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) Hyderabad Registrar NV Ramana Rao, who is also the convener of TS Eamcet.
Speaking to The Hans India here on Thursday, Ramana Rao who visited Sri Sita Ramachandra Swamy temple, said, “Applications online are being accepted from February 28. The last date for submission of applications is March 28. About 1.2 lakh students are expected to apply for the medical stream of Eamcet and 1.3 lakh students for the engineering stream. TS Eamcet is likely to receive 30,000 applications from students of neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.”
Elaborating on arrangements, he said, ``Twelve regional centres will be set up for Eamcet in the State. Hyderabad will be divided into eight zones to ensure smooth conduct of the exam. The engineering exam will be held from 10 am to 1 pm. The exam timings of medical stream are 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm.
Students will not be allowed to enter the exam hall even if they are late by one minute. As a measure to prevent malpractices, candidates will not be allowed to wear even wrist watch. Digital clocks will be set up in exam halls to maintain accuracy in timings. Eamcet key will be released on May 3. Objections if any on the Eamcet key will be accepted till May 10.
Eamcet ranks will be announced on May 12. Counselling will be conducted by the first week of June.’’ Expressing concern over the increase in rate of unemployment among engineering graduates, Ramana Rao said emphasis would be laid on improving educational standards. A plan of action would be implemented in the State from the next academic year to enhance the employability of engineering graduates by making them industry-ready with the requisite communication and soft skills, he added.
