Online EAMCET counselling begins in State

The A.P. State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) and the Department of Technical Education started online counselling on Friday for the students who qualified in EAMCET-2020 and were seeking admission into engineering and pharmacy courses.

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the authorities opted for online mode of counselling this year.

The certificate verification process will start at 9 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. every day up to October 27. Due to the physical distancing norm, the students do not have to visit any college or university, and can get their certificates verified from home in the online mode.
