Aspirants need to enter Inter hall-ticket number on website

EAMCET aspirants this year may not need to upload their photos and personal details while filling the form online as the officials would upload the same in advance with the data collected from their Intermediate exam applications.

All that the aspirant needs to do is to key in the Intermediate hall-ticket number on the application form on the EAMCET website and all the personal details will appear on the screen, including the photograph. Only a few details such as the test they prefer to take – either engineering or medical – and the preferred test centre will be asked making it easy for the aspirants. “This will not only make their job easy but also check wrong information being fed. It will also reduce the scope for malpractice,” a senior official said.

This year, authorities are contemplating to make online EAMCET applications mandatory. However, the final decision will be taken on January 25 when the EAMCET committee meets. Online mode will be used even if the authorities prefer to stay with printed applications.

The EAMCET authorities have acquired the data from the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) from the year 2004. So, there is no chance of any aspirant missing out from the list. “Since majority of the data is already fed on the online application, rural students too would not find it difficult to fill the form. They need to fill only bare minimum details so that they don't face any problems,” an official said adding that the software will highlight the wrong information filled by the applicants. “They can then immediately alter the information.”

Info on mobiles

Another advantage is that the aspirants can change the preferences several times if they wish to appear in a different town or city. Aspirants will get the hall-ticket information on the mobiles as well as their emails, which they can print and use. “We will also save a lot of money as we don't have to print several lakhs of applications and run after post offices or banks to sell them,” another official said. “This will also help us concentrate more on the conduct of examination than dealing with lakhs of printed applications."
