Candidates would be given the choice of submitting filled in application forms either at the Guntur Regional Coordinator's Office in SVN Colony (near Balaji Temple) in person or submit it online.
Application had been simplified by making it only a two-page form and a student need not attach any certificate/xerox copy to it. Those submitting online need to scan their signature and photograph to be placed at the appropriate place, he added.
