Hyderabad: Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) is making elaborate arrangements for conduct of online Common Entrance Tests (CETs) including the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS-EAMCET) 2018.

The TSCHE Chairman T Papi Reddy on Tuesday held a review meeting with conveners of all the CETs. As these entrance tests are being held online for the first time, all the centres have been taken under control by the concerned conveners and sanitised.

The officials have been instructed to ensure that all the centres have adequate power back and also buffer systems. The candidates will be allowed into the centres two hours before commencement of the test. Biometric details of the students will be recorded and are directed to their respective computers.

“We are going through the centres and all the systems have been sanitised. We are ensuring good UPS backup and also power generators. Loopholes if any can be rectified after EAMCET mock test,” an official said.
