Students and their parents in Andhra Pradesh are shocked to know that officials have set up AP Eamcet-2020 exam centres in corona quarantine centres.
AP Eamcet-2020 is scheduled to be held from July 27 in online mode.
More than 2.71 lakh students have applied for Eamcet this year.
Officials had set up 146 exam centres for Eamcet across the state. These centres were set up mostly in private engineering colleges.
Of them, 23 centres are located in colleges, which are turned into corona quarantine centres.
Recently, one more exam centre in Ongole was converted as quarantine centre.
Hundreds of corona positive patients are under quarantine in these Eamcet exam centres.
With this, students and parents are worried about health and safety.
Students and parents are demanding government to change exam centres.
They are also demanding postponement of Eamcet till September as AP is witnessing steep increase in corona positive cases for the past few days.
They say the situation is not at all conductive for holding Eamcet in July as per original schedule.
