AP ECET Exam Date

As the official notification for AP ECET 2019 is yet to be released by the organizing authority, based on the past records, it is expected that the AP ECET might be held in the first week of May 2019.

Selection Process

Candidates will be shortlisted based on the marks they secure in the written test. Based on the marks in the test, the convening authority will release the integrated merit rank. The merit rank will be prepared for each engineering branch separately for the engineering stream.

As per the order of the government, candidates holding a diploma in any branch of technology/engineering, who qualify in APECET 2019, will be eligible for admission to the B. Tech in computer science, information technology and other branches of engineering. The combined merit rank will be prepared by the convening authority based on the total marks obtained by candidates in AP ECET with a diploma in any technology/engineering branch.

Resolving Tie in Engineering Stream

In case of a tie in ranking the candidates based on the marks in the entrance test, the marks obtained in engineering subject will be considered first. If the tie still exists, the marks in mathematics will be considered. Even after this, if the tie continues, the marks in physics will be taken for comparison. In case, candidates have got equal marks in all subjects, they will be bracketed for the award of ranking. Here, the age of the candidates will be considered to resolve the tie and older candidates will get the better ranking.

Resolving Tie in Pharmacy Stream

In case, there is a tie in ranking for candidates taking up AP ECET 2019 for pharmacy stream, the percentage of marks the candidates have obtained in the qualifying examination will be considered. If the tie continues, the candidate with an older age will be considered for the better ranking.

Resolving Tie in B. Sc Mathematics Stream

In case, two candidates secure the same marks in the entrance examination, the marks they have obtained in the mathematics subject will be considered. If the tie continues, the marks in qualifying examination will be considered for resolving the tie.

The convening authority will notify the minimum qualifying mark for every engineering branch and for pharmacy and B. Sc Mathematics. Securing this minimum is not enough and getting better ranking will help candidates to gain admission to one of the premier institutions. So, they should try to secure a better rank and this is possible with practice.


If I Plan To Take Bio-Technology As The Option For The 4th Paper In Engineering AP ECET 2019, Should I Have A Diploma In Biotechnology?

It is not that you should have a diploma in biotechnology. Even, if you have a diploma in chemical engineering or even if you hold a diploma in pharmacy, you can apply for the biotechnology branch for AP ECET Engineering Stream examination.

If I Want To Take The AP ECET 2019 Test In A Specific District, Is It Possible?

Yes, the convening authority offered 14 different district options in 2018 for applicants to choose when they fill up their application. You can expect the same number of districts or even more number of districts for 2019. You can choose three district preferences out of the available options. The test will be conducted in different centres in these 14 districts. So, you need not have to worry about the closeness of the examination centre to your place.
