Officials are toying with the idea of verifying the certificates of EAMCET aspirants soon after the results are released instead of waiting till the actual process of counselling starts.

The idea is to cut down the time and ensure that certification is not done in a hurry. This year the announcement of final ranks is likely to be delayed and done only in the second week of July. Officials want to announce the results taking into consideration the marks obtained in the re-verification of scripts and recounting of marks obtained in the advanced supplementary examinations.

Officials said since verification of certificates has nothing to do with ranks obtained they want to advance the process. Last year, verification was done in 59 helpline centres across the State, and this year the number may be increased as new centres have been added in two more districts.

If a final decision is taken the process is likely to start in June second week after the marks of EAMCET are announced. Scratch cards for web counselling are likely to be given to students during certificate verification only.
