Roundup on AP EAMCET 2017: Official Key out, results on 5 May, predict ranks

JNTU Kakinada has sped up the exam-related procedures immediately after the conclusion of the test yesterday. The preliminary AP EAMCET 2017 key for engineering entrance exam was placed at the online portal on April 28, while the keys for agriculture exam will be released shortly. The objection submission window also opened with the release of EAMCET key and the students will be able to submit their objections up to 5 pm on May 1.

The exam paper and preliminary key have also been mailed to the registered mail ids of the EAMCET applicants. An official note was issued by the varsity stating that the students will have to submit the objections in a specified format. Objections submitted in any other format than the prescribed will be right away rejected. The objections can be sent on or before 5 pm on May 1 to the email ID:


Here is the prescribed format for submitting objections against the EAMCET key.

Students can submit objections against EAMCET key only in this format

The authorities have uploaded the master copy of question paper (for each session) along with its preliminary key. Just open the EAMCET portal (click here) and select the appropriate question paper/ key. The response sheets of all the candidates have also been uploaded which one can access by using his/ her respective registration number and EAMCET hall ticket number.

Now, the next step is to compare the questions and responses (answers) with respect to the master copy of question paper and preliminary key. If you find any question wrongly answered in the preliminary EAMCET 2017 key, note it down and mention it in the format given above. Also, do not forget to justify your objection with the proper proof from a reference book.

Once the window of objection submission will close, the authorities will call up an expert panel to consider all the objections and make necessary amendments in the preliminary key. Based on the modifications, the final key will be prepared and the results will be based on the final key only.

EAMCET result will be declared along with the ranks. As per the rules, the ranks will be assigned in the order of merit on the basis of combined score obtained by giving 75% weightage to the marks secured in AP EAMCET 2017 and 25% weightage to the marks secured in the relevant group subjects (Mathematics, Physics, & Chemistry for Engineering Entrance Exam and Biology, Physics, & Chemistry for Agriculture) in Class 12.

EAMCET 2017 rank list preparation

EAMCET marks (out of 160) – 75% weightage
IPE Marks (relevant subjects) – 25% weightage

EAMCET 2017 paper (both Engg & Agriculture) comprised of 160 questions, each having 1 mark. Now normalize the marks to 100, giving due weightage to EAMCET and Class 12 marks. If you are getting your final score to be above 93 marks, be prepared, you might just get a rank between 1 to 10. If the score comes out to be between 93 to 91 marks, your rank may fall in the range of 11 to 50. Similarly, for 90.99-82 marks, the rank may remain in the range of 51 to 500. For 81.99 to 67 marks, rank may be 501 to 5000. For 66.99 to 61 marks, the rank should be in the range of 5001-10,000. (Note: These rank predictions are on the basis of past few years’ results.)

AP EAMCET 2017 was administered in eight sessions on April 24, 25, 26 and April 28 as a common entrance test for admissions into Engineering and Agriculture streams. Out of 1,98,158 registered candidates for engineering entrance exam, over 95 percent took the test.
