AP students asked to prepare for EAMCET & NEET 2013!
Aspirants to the medical programmes in the state of Andhra Pradesh are in a dilemma. The confusion stems from the fact that the state education authorities have asked the students to be prepared for both NEET as well as EAMCET for 2013. Following the objections to NEET and subsequent petitions against it in the court, the education department is not taking a chance by conducting EAMCET 2013.
