About AP PGECET (Notification Expected in March 2020)

On behalf of the Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE), a Postgraduate entrance examination is conducted by Andhra University in Visakhapatnam, called AP PGECET, for aspirants seeking admission into various PG courses offered by the APSCHE affiliated colleges.

Through AP PGECET, graduates belonging to the state of Andhra Pradesh can apply for admission into postgraduate programmes related to Engineering, Pharmacy and Technology fields of study. 

AP PGECET application form is usually released in the month of March every year, most of the times, during the first week of the aforementioned month itself. Candidates from Andhra Pradesh can only apply for this state-level entrance examination via the online mode. 

The AP PGECET entrance test is conducted every year around the first week of May month and the admit card for the same is released 1 to 2 weeks before the date of exam. 

The exam officials release the AP PGECET preliminary answer key within 24 to 48 hours of the exam conclusion. The candidates are given 2 to 3 days to raise objections, if any, against the preliminary answer key following which they release the final answer key. 

The AP PGECET officials work in a very quick and efficient manner which can be understood from the fact that the AP PGECET result is released within a fortnight from the date on which the exam is conducted. After the AP PGECET result is released, the authorities conduct the counselling process and seat allotment process through which the eligible candidates can land up into their desired course and college.
