The test for the engineering stream will be held from 10 am to 1 pm, and for medical aspirants from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm. Eamcet convener N.V. Ramana Rao said nearly 1.44 lakh candidates had applied for the engineering test, and 1.02 lakh for the medical stream. Candidates have been asked to download hall-tickets from May 9.

“Each candidate should only carry the hall-ticket, print out of the filled-in online application form and a blue or black ball-point pen. Candidates will not be allowed to go outside, even to the toilet, during the three-hour period of examination. Hence, students are advised to go to bathrooms before entering the exam halls,” he said, and added that biometric data of each candidate would be collected for verification at the time of counselling.

The answer key for the exam will be released the same day. Individual OMRs will be uploaded on the website at the time of declaration of results. Two centres  — JNTU or IIIT-H at Hyderabad and NIT at Warangal — are likely to host the online medical exam. TSCHE chairman Prof. Papi Reddy stated that 20 jammers would be placed at problematic centres.
