Andhra Pradesh Post Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test ( PGECET ) Entrance Examination

AP PGECET 2019 – Andhra Pradesh University conducts Andhra Pradesh Post Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test (AP PGECET) every year. The University holds the examination on behalf of State Council of Andhra Pradesh (APSCHE). AP PGECET is a state level examination, through seats are filled in PG Engineering courses, offered by the colleges in the state.

AP PGECET 2019 will be an online examination. Andhra University will release an admission notification for the exam.  It is expected to be held in the month of May 2019. Candidates who wish to take admission in ME/MTech college in the State of Andhra Pradesh can start filling up the online application forms in the month of March 2019. GATE qualifying candidates are exempted from AP PGECET and for then a separate notification will be released. Candidates can check eligibility criteria, important dates, application process, syllabus, exam pattern, and more details about AP PGECET 2019 from this page.
