The state of Andhra Pradesh will be conducting all of the common entrance examinations in online mode from the academic session of 2017-2018. This change, which has been introduced for the convenience of the applicants, was announced by the HRD minister of the state Ganta Srinivasa Rao on January 5, 2017.
According to the HRD Minister, the entrance examination will be held online due to the fact that there has been less number of students taking admissions in the past years despite the availability of engineering seats. Many colleges have had zero admissions and currently a committee is being constituted to discuss whether AP EAMCET should be continued in 2017 or should be replaced with some other alternative. Before the enforcement of the online common entrance test, a mock online test will be held for the students to get used to the new mode of examination.
