Hyderabad: The results of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana EAMCET (Engineering , Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test) 2016 has been postponed due to the Supreme Court verdict on state run CETs in the wake of its earlier decision to hold a single medical entrance test named National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET).
"The AP EAMCET 2016 results was supposed to be declared today at 05:00 pm. However, it has been decided to delay it in the wake of Supreme Court ruling expected today evening", sources said.

EAMCET is conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada on behalf of APSCHE and is a prerequisite for admission into various professional courses offered by the university/ private colleges in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Over 2.90 lakh students had appeared for EAMCET, a day after the Supreme Court delivered its judgement, asking all states to follow NEET. Ganta Srinivasa Rao said that Andhra Pradesh filed a review petition in the Supreme Court, seeking exemption from the apex court orders regarding National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for admissions into medical and dental courses.
The minister also said that the reason why the state was seeking an exemption from NEET was because its case was different from the other states. It was also pointed out that the state is protected by Article 371(D) and the subsequent presidential order that gives special privileges in admissions.
The Andhra government still went ahead with the examination proceedings, despite the confusion after the court's order.
