What is EAMCET?
Andhra Pradesh Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (AP EAMCET) is conducted by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada for candidates who wish to pursue engineering and Medical courses at one of the several state engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh.
EAMCET was a common and combined exam for both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states till 2014. In 2015, after Telangana became a separate state, Andhra Pradesh began conducting a separate exam, i.e., AP EAMCET, while Telangana started to conduct TS EAMCET separately.

What is the AP EAMCET exam pattern?
The paper would comprise of three sections:
|Subject||No. of questions|
|Mathematics(Engineering) / Biology(Medical)||80|
- The questions will be Objective-type carrying one (+1) mark each
- No Negative Marking for incorrect answers
How should I prepare?
- Be thorough with your basics: Most of the question in UPTU UPSEE are asked with the motive of testing the basics of the students sitting for the examination. The more you read about a concept, the more you realise how each and every concept is applied to different questions.
- Time management: You must allocate near to equal time to all the three subjects- Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics with a special focus on your weak subject.
- 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 the 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 your weak concepts, so ask doubts and probe further into concepts. Leave no stone unturned!
- Simulating examination: Take help of UPTU UPSEE previous years’ question papers, mock test papers, and of course, 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: Lastly, 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 help you in your last minute preparation and helps you to quickly go through the concepts.

Where can I find previous years’ papers?
Solving previous years’ papers always gives you an edge over your peers. You can head over here to Toppr’s page and select the EAMCET link to find previous years’ papers. The more your practice, sharper are your skills.
When do I qualify?
Admissions to students in various colleges and universities will be given on the basis of the cut-off marks. The cut-off marks will be based on different factors such as the difficulty level of exam, number of students appeared for exam and the availability of seats. In the table given below, we have mentioned the previous year medical colleges cut-off:
|College||Open Category||Opening Rank||Closing Rank|
|Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad||OU (Male)||16||468|
|Gandhi Medical College, Secunderabad||OU (Male)||1||8320 (Special Category)|
|OU (Female)||6||12824 (Special Category)|
|Guntur Medical College, Guntur||AU (Male)||70||898|
|AU (Female)||101||10894 (Special Category)|
Qualifying marks are those marks which candidates will be needed to score in the examination to qualify. Minimum 25% marks will be required to score in the EAMCET examination to qualify it. Total 40 marks will be needed out of 160 to qualify EAMCET exam.
