2.38 lakh to appear for EdCET

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, OCT. 13. Over 2.38 lakh candidates will take the Education Common Entrance Test (EdCET) to be held on October 17 in 1,021 centres in the State.

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, the EdCET convener, E. R. Appa Rao, said over 1.32-lakh candidates are appearing in the Social Sciences stream with the second highest being in Mathematics stream with 49,266 candidates.

He said 2,803 candidates are appearing in Urdu medium. Over 11,000 employees from different departments have been drafted for invigilation. Mr. Rao said those who do not receive the hall tickets can download them from the website - www.aponline.gov.in -- from Thursday onwards. If there are any discrepancies like wrong mention of subject, medium, centre or personal details, candidates can approach the EdCET cells set up in all the DEO offices.

Though only two Urdu medium centres have been allotted -- Kurnool and Hyderabad -- Urdu papers are being sent to all the centres. Students who fail to come to Hyderabad or Kurnool or unknowingly land up in other centres can appear for the test there in Urdu medium. Warning of stern action against those planning to indulge in impersonation, Mr. Rao said steps have been taken to ensure that candidates who had applied at more than one place for their convenience would not misuse it. For the first time the Government has decided to allow students to take the question paper outside the hall after the test unlike the previous practice wherein they had to submit the question paper along with the answer sheet.

Release of key

Mr. Rao said the initial key will be released within three days of the conduct of the test and one-week time will be given to the candidates and the teachers to submit their objections. Release of the final key will depend on the number of objections received.
