    HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) issued the Engineering, Agricultural and Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) - 2007 notification on Thursday.

    Students will be allowed to submit applications online this year. Candidates need to purchase the application form from the identified post offices or the e-seva centres paying Rs. 250. Each form will carry a serial number and a unique code number. The application form will also be available on the web and while submitting online they need to enter the serial number and the code number.
