It may be recalled that the Andhra Pradesh Eamcet medical and agriculture results were not declared earlier due to the confusion over the conduct of NEET entrance. Following a Union government’s ordinance on Friday that all States can conduct their respective entrance tests for medical stream this year and that NEET will be enforced from 2017, the path has been cleared for the announcement of AP Eamcet results. The Eamcet for medical and agriculture stream had been conducted on April 29 from 2 pm to 5:30 pm and later the board released a preliminary answer key. A total of 98,750 students had appeared for the exam.
Human Resource Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao and Eamcet convenor Prof. C.H Sai Babu (JNTU Kakinada) were present. (NSS)
