Pattern

The paper would comprise of three sections:

Subject No. of questions
Physics 40
Chemistry 40
Mathematics(Engineering) / Biology(Medical) 80
Total 160
  • The questions will be objective-type and will carry 1 mark each
  • No negative marking will be done for incorrect answers

Preparation

  • Be thorough with your basics: Most questions in the AP EAMCET exam are asked with the motive of testing the basics of students sitting for the examination. The more you read about concepts, the more you realise how each and every one of them is applied to different questions.
  • Time management: You must allocate almost equal time to all three subjects – Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics – with special focus on subjects you’re weak at.
  • Define your study material: Studying from too many sources often causes chaos and confusion. You should refrain from repeatedly studying the same concepts from different sources and instead stick to a few well-known and established reference books. It is always better to evolve a concept through problem-solving rather than just reading textbooks.
  • Know your strengths and weaknesses: Your preparation is strictly governed by self-analysis. Knowing your weaknesses allows you to work on concepts you’re weak at. Ask doubts, probe further into concepts and leave no stone unturned.
  • Simulating examination: Take the help of previous years’ EAMCET question papers, mock test papers, and test series; and practice them under timed conditions. It is also important to adapt your body clock to the examination timings so that you can deliver your best in that duration.
  • Revision notes: Make proper notes of concepts that require regular revision. These could be mathematical formulae or important chemical reactions; basically, anything that is important and is expected to be remembered for the exam. These notes are invaluable in your last-minute preparations and help you quickly go through concepts.
