Andhra University had conducted the APSET 2016 on August 11. According to the data received, around 56 thousand candidates had registered to sit for the exam but only around 44 thousand appeared on the test day. The test is held for 31 subjects, the most after UGC NET. The number of candidates for APSET 2016 is considerably low as compared to last year when around 1.02 lakh had taken the test.
The statistics also show that out of the total who took APSET last year, some 20 thousand clear the step I while only around 6.4 thousand could be declared qualified.

Candidates wishing to challenge the answer key have to submit their scanned copies, proving that they took the test.
As for the results, APSET 2016 results are expected to be declared toward October-end and November. Considering that in 2015, the test was held in February and results were announced in June, it can be speculated that Andhra University will declare the results of APSET-2016 in about 3 months after the holding of the test. However it’s 2016 and the boards usually announce results sooner, so expect the results in October-end.
But Andhra University will eventually notify about the date of APSET 2016 result declaration and nothing solid can be said without any official consent. We’ll update here when we’ve more.
