EAMCET to be made foolproof

Notification will be issued on February 10

Web options for this year’s engineering admissions have to be given in the selected helpline centres only in the presence of parents and any changes will have to be made at the same venue. Candidates, while downloading the rank card must upload either their father or mother’s picture and only they will be allowed in the helpline centres.

APSCHE Chairman L. Venugopal Reddy, EAMCET-2014 Convenor N.V. Ramana Rao and others told reporters that the new norm will curb the role of middlemen and unfair practices being adopted by some to mislead the students. Several changes were brought in forms of EAMCET to curb malpractice. A watermark will be introduced on the application form apart from a unique bar code to avoid fake applications.

It is mandatory to give complete date of birth details including the State, district and education from first class to Intermediate in the application form.

Helpline centre details where candidates plan to give web options during admissions needs to be included in the application form itself.

Details of SSC and Intermediate hall-ticket number are also must. Aadhar card details can be given but not mandatory. An option was given for making changes in the application form by the candidates themselves after submission.

Prof. Reddy said the ‘one-minute late’ rule will continue and advised students to reach the exam hall an hour before the scheduled time. A thumb impression of candidates will also be taken in the exam hall along with signature.

Exam on May 17

EAMCET-2014 notification will be issued on February 10 and online applications can be submitted from February 20. Last date of submission is April 4. Applications can be submitted with a late fee of Rs. 500 till April 18, with a late fee of Rs. 1,000 till April 25, with a late fee of Rs. 5,000 till May 5 and with Rs. 10,000 late fee till May 14.

However, the dates are likely to change if they clash with the elections.
