All set for EdCET

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, OCT. 16. All arrangements have been made for the Education Common Entrance Test (EdCET), to be held on Sunday in 1,021 centres in 36 cities across the State. Over 2.38 lakh students have applied for the test.

The Ed.CET Convenor, E.R. Appa Rao told The Hindu that question papers had been sent to all district treasury Offices and Police Stations and from there they would be sent to examination centres in the morning. The test would be conducted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. He asked students to report an hour before the examination. However, no candidates would be allowed to enter the examination hall after 11.30 a.m. He said students should be careful while entering their registration numbers and the code of the stream they are appearing for.

Mr. Rao said over 1.32 lakh candidates were appearing in the Social Sciences stream while 49,266 in the Mathematics stream. He said 2,803 candidates were appearing in Urdu medium. Candidates could take the question papers unlike the previous practice where they had to submit the question paper along with the answer sheet.

Key in three days

The initial key would be released within three days of the conduct of the examination and one-week time would be given to the candidates and teachers to submit their objections. The final key would be released a few days later after looking into the objections.

Helpline

A control room has been opened for Ed.Cet 2004 in the office of the Commissioner and Director of School Education to clarify doubts of candidates.

The phone numbers are 55523313, 55159917, 98499 09150, 94400 36316, 94406 23916, 98480 98712 and 31024220, according to a press release.
