Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) released the exam schedule with dates for various common entrance tests – CET examinations to be held in the Andhra Pradesh. While the Engineering, Agriculture, Medical Common Entrance Test – EAMCET 2010 will be conducted by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technical University (JNTU) as usual from May 30, the PGCET will be conducted by Osmania University on June 4.

The other exams include Ed-CET, which will be conducted by Osmania University on June 13 and the PECET to be held by Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur on June 17.
LAWCET and PGLCET will be conducted by the Sri Venkateshwara University, Tirupati on June 10.
According to Times of India report, M D Christopher, secretary of the state council of higher education, said there was a proposal to make EAMCET question papers available to students. Earlier, the students had to write their answers in the same booklet that had questions. However, last year the EAMCET question paper had a few errors and the candidates had to be awarded as many as 14 marks. So this year, there is a proposal to give students answer sheets along with the question paper.
Another proposal to allow late comers to appear for the EAMCET exams is also being considered. “No students are allowed to enter the exam hall even five minutes late, but a proposal was mooted to allow a student into the hall within 15 minutes of the beginning of the exam. But both these decisions would be taken by the EAMCET committee, which will announce them within a week,” said Christopher.
