Notification will be issued on February 10
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.
