AP EAMCET 2019 was conducted from 20th to 24th April 2019 by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Kakinada for B.Pharm, B.Tech, Pharma.D, B.Sc (Hort), B.Sc (Agriculture), A.H & B.F Sc and B.V Sc courses. The qualified candidates will be eligible for admission in their desired AP EAMCET 2019 participating college after the AP EAMCET 2019 counselling process is over. CollegeDekho spoke to some of the test takers regarding the AP EAMCET 2019 examination.
According to the students, AP EAMCET 2019, unlike the previous year, was easy in spite of some tricky questions. The B.Tech question paper, though lengthy, was easier than other similar competitive exams such as BITSAT, JEE Main, VITEEE, etc. Both the first time exam takers and repeaters seemed confident of scoring good marks in this year’s AP EAMCET entrance examination. Provided below is the overall AP EAMCET 2019 exam analysis as well as section-wise exam analysis for the reference of the students.
The AP EAMCET 2019 exam was lengthy but easy compared to the previous year.
There were a fair number of tricky questions which required out of the box approach and were time-consuming.
The candidates belonging to General category must at least score 25% marks to qualify AP EAMCET 2019.
There is no minimum marks limit for SC/ST candidates who have appeared in AP EAMCET 2019.
The merit list will be prepared based on the candidate’s performance in the AP EAMCET 2019 exam as well as their performance in 10+2 qualifying exam.
25% weightage will be given to the candidate’s 10+2 exam marks and 75% weightage will be given to AP EAMCET 2019 marks obtained by the candidates while preparing the AP EAMCET 2019 merit list.
The students rated the Chemistry section to be the easiest of all.
Organic Chemistry questions were a bit difficult.
The difficulty level of the AP EAMCET 2019 Mathematics section was moderate.
A few questions required lengthy calculations which consumed most of the candidate’s time.
Questions related to integration were also time-consuming.
AP EAMCET 2019 concluded on 24th April 2019 and was conducted in two shifts in online mode. A staggering 2,82,633 students registered for AP EAMCET 2019 out of which 86,910 students applied for Agriculture and Medical stream while the remaining 1,95,723 students applied for Engineering stream. The exam was conducted in 115 centers.
The minimum qualifying marks required for ranking AP EAMCET is 25% of the maximum marks i.e. 40 marks out of total of 160 marks for general category students.
There were a total of 8 slots from 22nd to 25th April 2018 on which the AP EAMCET exam was conducted in slots each day.
The question paper in each of the slots were different but what as commendable was that in each of the slots the test conducting body of AP EAMCET ensured similar paper pattern so that none of the students of any of the slots may have an edge over the others.
The questions in each of the slots were also jumbled among themselves so as to avoid any unfair means of marking the correct answers.
As per the first reaction of the paper it can be inferred that the difficulty level of the paper was of moderate level in almost all the 8 slots and there were no surprise element in any of the slot i.e. it was on predictable lines.
Except for Chemistry section, the remaining two sections were viz Maths and Physics were of moderate to easy level and one could easy maximize scores in these sections.

Section-wise Analysis of AP EAMCET 2018
Among the 3 sections of AP EAMCET for Engineering, Physics was the easiest followed by Chemistry and then Maths.
What made Physics easier was that the questions were direct and anyone with clarity in his/her fundamentals had a fair change of attempting 32 to 34 questions with 85% accuracy and can score 28 plus marks.
In Physics section, questions were majorly from Gravitation, Motion, Electrostatic, capacitance, alternating current, semiconductor, current electricity, waves, optics, thermodynamics, oscillations, rotational motion, work, energy, power, mechanical properties, thermal properties.
The questions in Chemistry section were primarily from 12th class and logic-driven, and involved the basic understanding of concepts.
In Chemistry section, majority of questions were from these chapters: Thermodynamics, S block elements, P block elements, organic chemistry, chemical equilibrium, state of matter, chemical bonding, molecular structure, atomic structure, classification of elements, hydrogen and its compounds.
An attempt of 30 at an accuracy of 80% is decent enough to get a score of 25 plus.
In Mathematics section, questions were lengthy and time-consuming, and attempting 70 questions within a time frame of 80 to 90 minutes was a herculean task. 55 to 60 can be considered as good attempts at an accuracy of 80%, which can get you approx 50 marks in this section.
Questions were primarily from Algebra, Trigonometry, vector algebra, measures of dispersion, coordinate geometry, probability, calculus.
As there is no negative marking in the paper, intelligent guess after elimination of 2 options was a good strategy of maximising the attempts.
An overall attempt of 125 plus at an accuracy of 80% is fairly decent for getting a score of 100 to 105, which is a good score for getting a rank under 2500 and to ensure admission in some of the top engineering colleges of AP.
Good number of attempts for fetching seat into Top Govt Engineering colleges will be 140 plus at an accuracy of 80%, which will give a rank of under 1000.
In fact, as there are close to 17 Govt Engineering colleges, one can even expect a seat in these Govt engineering colleges at a rank of under 3000. Rank of 3000 can be achieved at a score of 100 to 105.
The paper was very close to the previous year AP EAMCET exam and was very predictable.
Students who would have practiced the previous years' papers thoroughly have a good chance of scoring well in this exam.
