TS Eamcet: Students must submit 'corona self-declaration form'

Students appearing for the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET 2020) this year should give a self-declaration that they have not tested positive for the coronavirus or identified as a potential carrier of Covid-19.

The state government has made self-declaration mandatory to ensure the safety of students and staff in the exam centres. The candidates have to declare if they have any of the COVID-related symptoms, including cough, fever, cold or runny nose and breathing problem.

The form can be downloaded from the official  website of TS EAMCET or collected from authorities at the exam centre.
