About AP EAMCET
The Andhra Pradesh Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (AP EAMCET) is conducted by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Kakinada. This popular examination is your gateway to Engineering and Medical programs in various Colleges and Universities within Andhra Pradesh. The results are declared over 13 or 14 days every year, making the counselling and admission process smooth. This exam is based on Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs).

The paper would comprise of three sections:
|Subject||No. of questions|
|Mathematics(Engineering) or Biology(Medical)||80|
- The exam will be conducted in offline (pen and paper) mode.
- The questions will be objective-type carrying one (1) mark each.
- The exam duration is 3 hours.
- For each question, four options will be given. You have to mark the correct one only.
- No Negative Marking will be done for incorrect answers.
- You have to use a black or blue ball point pen.
- Ensure Clarity of Concepts: Focus more on understanding basic concepts rather than just the formulae. It will ensure that you imbibe the method used to arrive at the formulae and never forget it.
- Manage Time Correctly: Some simple time management tips will ease your preparation. Keep an eye on the time taken to solve questions. A subject-wise allocation of time will help you attempt the paper within the given time. It will also help you in your exam by letting you filter out easy questions from the difficult ones, so you know how much time to allot to them.
- Accomplish Targets on a Daily Basis: Your daily study plan must include learning and revision. Assign daily goals for yourself and fulfil them. This will boost your confidence for the exam and avoid wastage of precious time.
- Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses: If you’re strong in Physics but average in Mathematics and weak in Chemistry, then you can turn your weaknesses into strengths for a good overall score by focusing on improvement areas. Take the help of your teachers or seniors to understand concepts better. Perfection in exam preparation is an imaginary concept. Yet, we can use some well thought out strategies to get closer to perfection!
- Remember What You Learn: Due to the vastness of the syllabus, it is important to remember what you learn. Inorganic Chemistry, long formulae, some concepts - there’s much to remember. Best do it well as the stuff you need to learn by heart won’t take up too much time in the paper.
- Study Material: Too many cooks spoil the broth. This adage holds true in the case of study material too. You must not experiment with too many sources and select only the reputed ones for the AP EAMCET 2017 examination.
- Sample Papers: Sample papers and previous years’ papers will go a long way in helping you crack any exam. Solving sample papers will help you find your strengths and weaknesses and give perspective to your preparation.

Previous Years’ Papers
While preparing for AP EAMCET 2017 or any other competitive exam, it’s imperative that you practice previous years' papers for that particular examination. The more your practice, the sharper your skills get.
Here are previous years’ papers for AP EAMCET:
Admission in various colleges and universities is given after considering the cut-off marks, that are based on different factors like difficulty level of the exam, number of students appearing for the exam, number of students passing the exam and the availability of seats.
The Qualification Criteria for AP EAMCET is 25% of the total marks for unreserved category. There is no prescribed qualification score for SC or ST students.
‘Participating Institutions’ is the list of colleges or institutes that will provide admission to candidates on the basis of their performance in the AP EAMCET 2017 examination.
Some top participating institutes under AP EAMCET 2017 are as follows
- Anjamma Agi Reddy Engineering College for Women
- Anwar-Uloom College of Pharmacy
- Andhra Yuvathi Mandali School of Pharmacy for Women

Discussing doubts is essential if you want to crack any entrance examination. At the same time, it is also important to be sure about the authenticity of the answers you receive. You can check out our doubt discussion platform, Discuss.
Here are some of the most common doubts asked by other students:
- How should I reduce calculation errors?
- What are some of the best study techniques I can use?
- How can I simultaneously manage preparation for both JEE Main and AP EAMCET?
- Along with AP EAMCET, I need to handle 12th board as well. Where can I find all the information I need? Which other exams can I appear for in 12th Standard?
- I am a repeater. Which exams can I attempt, now that I don’t have the burden of 12th board?
