Other Engineering Entrances

Some of the states conduct their own entrance examination for the admission into the state-run and some of the private engineering colleges (in those states). Though some of the state entrance examinations are known beyond that state's borders, often admission into those institutes is restricted by the domicile clause.

Andhra Pradesh has AP EAMCET (Engineering,Agriculture and Medical Entrance Examination), Telangana has TS EAMCET,West Bengal has WBJEE(West Bengal Engineering Entrance Examination), to name a few.

Clicking on the following links will give a fair idea about the examinations.

The Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Entrance Test (EAMCET) was the common entrance examination for admissions to Engineering courses, MBBS/ BDS and other Medical allied courses in the erstwhile combined state of Andhra Pradesh.

Presently the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh conduct the EAMCET examination separately – namely TS-EAMCET and AP-EAMCET respectively. In general the two exam patterns, syllabuses, eligibility criteria, procedure of admissions all remain very similar to each other.

The EAMCET (AP & TS) Engineering examination caters to all engineering admissions (B.Tech) including B.Tech in Bio Technology, Dairy Technology, Agricultural engineering and Food Science and Technology.

With the introduction of NEET as the common entrance to all MBBS and BDS admissions, the EAMCET (AP & TS) Medical examination caters to admissions in B.Sc (Agriculture), B.Sc (Horticulture), B.V.Sc & A.H., B.F.Sc., B Pharmacy and D.Pharm. Please read note on EAMCET Medical for additional details about EAMCET Medical.

In Category I: Only one answer option is correct;
In Category-II: Only one answer option is correct;
In Category-III: One or more answer options are correct.

Scoring Methodology

Category–I :

  1. Only one option is correct.
  2. Correct response will yield 1 (one) mark.
  3. Incorrect response will yield -1/4 (25% negative) marks.
  4. For any combination of response with more than one option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and will yield -1/4 (25% negative) marks.

Category–II :

  1. Only one option is correct.
  2. Correct response will yield 2(two) marks.
  3. Incorrect response will yield -1/2 (25% negative) marks.
  4. For any combination of response with more than one option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and will yield -1/2 (25% negative) marks.

Publication of Merit Lists:

The merit list is prepared based on the score of candidates appeared in all the subjects (i.e. mathematics, physics & chemistry) in the WBJEE-2017.

Separate reserved category merit rank will also be published for respective category of students e.g. SC Rank, ST Rank, OBC-A Rank, OBC-B Rank, PwD Rank, TFW Rank.

Tie-breaking Rule for Merit Rank List-I (GMR): applicable for Engineering Merit Rank

  1. Less negative marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry taken together
  2. More positive marks in Mathematics and Physics taken together
  3. More positive marks in Mathematics and Chemistry taken together
  4. Less negative marks in Mathematics and Physics taken together
  5. Less negative marks in Mathematics and Chemistry taken together
  6. More positive marks in Mathematics for only the 2 marks questions
  7. More positive marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  8. More positive marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  9. Less negative marks in Mathematics for only the 2 marks questions
  10. Less negative marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions.

After application of the Tie-breaking Rules, if tie still exists, the older candidate will be given preference over the younger one.
