Engineering Agricultural and Medical Common Entrance Test, commonly called as EAMCET, is an entrance examination held separately in the Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for admission into various colleges across both the states in the streams of Engineering, Medicine and Agriculture.[1][2]


The EAMCET is a yearly examination taken by a large number of engineering and medical aspirants in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State. This is the entrance exam for engineering ('E' category) and medicine ('AM' category: Agriculture and Medicine) for admission to BE/BArch/BTech (Agril Engg/Dairy Tech).[1][2]

In 2014, the EAMCET exam was conducted on 22 May 2014. There has been controversy regarding the EAMCET counselling after the state of Andhra Pradesh was split into Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The APSCHE (Andhra Pradesh State Council for Higher Education) has issued the notification for counselling starting 1 August of the academic year and all seats should be positively filled by 15 August. The Telangana government has filed a suit in Supreme court to delay the counselling. The Supreme Court on Monday 1 August 2014 reserved verdict on Telangana State's application seeking extension of the time schedule for counselling for admissions to engineering and medicine for 2014-15 till 31 October. The Supreme court has made it clear that it could extend the counselling for one month and not beyond 31 August. The bench also said there could be no question of preference being given to 'locals' in admission to colleges within Telangana.[3]
