  1. sir, what hall ticket number should be entered in application form.

    1. Thanks for your comment velivela kriu. If you're studying final year of any one of diploma courses like 3 years of polytechnic or 2 years of D.Pharmacy or already completed then enter Permanent Identity Number (PIN) of you that is officially provided by SBTET in the specified place in that application form or in case you're an B.Sc. (Mathematics) holder then enter your permanent hall ticket number of your course that is officially given by University. Don't mistake while filling form and for more help to fill up online form read our complete post about procedure to fill and submit the application form using above given link. Best of luck!

  2. i paid ecet fee through aponline on this process ssc ht no wrong entered. so when i apply online its shows invalid details
    so pls help me how to get my transaction details

    1. It is almost impossible to edit already paid fee payment details anyway. So suggestion from our side is pay your prescribed examination registration fee again from any one of the nearest recognized helpline centers like Mee-Seva, E-Seva or AP Online by providing all required genuine details carefully and without doing mistake again. Or if you provided all correct details during payment and forgot them unfortunately and wish to get them back then you should need to consult directly ECET head office using following phone numbers and email address. Phone: 0884-2340535, Fax: 0884-2340545,
      E-Mail: convenerecet2014@gmail.com

  3. what is minimum rank for ECET to get seat in any college with out paying any fee(i.e ramaining money other than fee reimbursement)

    1. The minimum pass marks for ECET exam is 50. So if you secured marks above 50 then you will be ranked or other then no. You can get seat in engineering even you get minimum pass marks of 50. But, there is no minimum rank to get seat without paying fees in some other colleges. All qualified candidates will get equal amount of scholarships as per their categories and fee reimbursement as per facilities level of corresponding institutes. You can get seat in almost all free institutes but after gaining seat in some popular institutes like PVP Siddhartha and LBRCE etc. you have to pay building funds more than 10,000/- rupees every year even you get merit rank. So if you want to get seat in particular popular college then before you get seat please see colleges fee particulars sheet that will be provided in ECET web counseling official website or directly consult that college management. Or if you get seat in any normal college then you don't need to pay penny and the funny thing is that some worst college faculty or also called brokers will offer and pay you back more than 10,000/- rupees if you accept to take admission into their college. But, our advice is that don't be stupid and don't take that kind of decisions. If you wish to get seat in popular college then seek your range of college that will don't take extra amount of money other than fee reimbursement. Please check latest fee particulars sheet provided during web counseling.

  4. What are the required documents for certificate verification in counseling center?

    1. Following are the required documents for certificate verification at counseling centers. So try to arrange and take them with you to the counseling hall at the time of verification.

      1. ECET Rank card and Hall Ticket generated from official website.

      2. Transfer Certificate (TC) issued by your college for course complete.

      3. Memorandum of Marks. For example, if you completed polytechnic then ready all your 5 or 6 semesters marks memos, in case you're a D.Pharmacy student then ready your 2 years marks memo or in case you're a B.Sc. degree holder then hold three years of marks memos.

      4. Provisional Diploma Certificate or final pass certificate of your course.

      5. Proof of Date of Birth like date of birth certificate, SSC marks memo, integrated community certificate or any other government given equivalent certificates.

      6. Study Certificate from 4th class to Diploma or in case degree holder then 4th class to degree level.

      7. Integrated Community Certificate and father’s Caste certificate in case of BC/ST/SC issued by the competent authority and generated from government helpline centers like Mee-seva or E-seva etc.

      8. Annual Income certificate of your parent or guardian generated from any one of official service centers of government like Mee-seva or AP online etc. issued on or after 01.01.2014.

      9. Ready both caste and income certificates generated from above given government recognized helpline centers only. Because, other than these certificates the officers at counseling centers will not accept.

      10. The Candidates of SC/ST category have to pay Rs. 300/- While OC/BC/Minority candidates have to pay Rs. 600/- towards Processing Fee. So also take required processing fee with you to the center by don't forgetting.

      11. Candidates claiming reservation under NCC/Sports shall bring the original certificates. PH Candidates shall submit certificate issued by the District Medical Board. CAP Candidates shall submit Certificate from Zilla Sainik Welfare Board, Discharge book & Identity card for Verification. Children of Ex-Service and In-Service persons who are domicile of Andhra Pradesh will alone be considered for allotment of seats under CAP Category.

      12. The Muslim and Christian Minority Candidates should bring TC of the SSC containing the Religion (Muslim/Christian/Other linguistic) or in the absence of TC, a Certificate issued by the Head of the Institution in which the student studied/appeared SSC or its equivalent.

      13. Residence certificate for preceding 7 years of the Qualifying examinations i.e. Diploma, in respect of candidates who have private study without institutionalized education.

      14. A.P. Residential Certificate of father/mother for a period of 10 years excluding the period of employment outside A.P. from Tahsildar in respect of Non-Local Candidates.

      In the above given list first 10 are the most mandatory documents to take with you to the center. So try to ready them as soon as possible. And after you went to the counseling center first and immediately handover your Xerox copy of ECET rank card to the concerned receiving person to call you for verification.

  6. Gud evening,Diploma provisional certificate is necessary for counseling .we had completed diploma this year we had not receive certificate from SBTET . Now what need to do in counseling?

    Reply : me quickly

    1. If yours provisional certificate of diploma not yet generated then you have to take at least it's relevant or alternate qualified certificate from your concerned college management to the counseling center. Or you can also take printout of results sheet of your final semester. Please consult your college principal or management for more help. Thanks for your comment for more latest updates follow us on Facebook. Just stay connected with us for exclusive ECET updates...

  7. Hi sir, i had completed my diploma,our provisional certificates are not generated yet so our college management is not issuing our transfer certificates(TC) and study certificates which i was submitted at the time of joining. instead of them they are providing us a certificate of course completion along with xerox copies of study certificates.is these certificates are sufficient for document verification otherwise is there any mandatory to submit TC,PC and originals of study certificates? if mandatory what should i do now?

    1. Hello Sai Krishna, you're almost perfect and you don't need to worry about anything. You can take certificate of course completion with xerox copies of study certificates to the counseling center including all other mandatory documents that you have for verification instead of provisional certificate of diploma. The APSCHE staff has already known that the provisional certificates of some diploma courses not yet generated so they don't force any candidate to bring it. So you can proceed for counseling with all documents that you have currently. After verification of your documents they'll gives you a receipt of certificates submitted. But remember one thing that is after you receive your provisional memo and other important documents you should have to submit them to the concerned college that where you got seat. Thanks for your comment and for more latest updates regarding ECET like us on Facebook to follow...

  8. Hi sir, I have completed my diploma,our PC not yet issued so our college management not giving TC instead of that they are providing a course completion certificate and xerox copies of study certificates(SC) which i was submitted at the time of joining(4th to 10th).These are enough for certificate verification instead of PC,TC and original copies of SC if not What i need to do?

  9. is there any full fee reimbuisment for ecet candidates who got rank below 100

    1. No, the tuition fee reimbursement is same for all candidates. So even you get first rank you'll receive just 35,000/- rupees of fee reimbursement. But scholarships are different and they based on reservation categories of candidates. So you should have to pay remaining fee to the college if applicable even you got top rank. Thanks for your comment and like Study Bucket page on Facebook to receive latest ECET counseling and other updates quickly on your stream...

    1.
