However, unlike the phase 1 exam, the AEEE phase 2 is going to be held in the remote proctored mode as well as computer-based test (CBT) mode. Candidates opting for remote proctored mode can take the test from their home using a computer while those who have opted for CBT will have to appear at the allotted centre as denoted in the AEEE admit card to take the test.

The university is conducting the AEEE 2021 in three phases this year. As stated, the first phase exam is already over and the results are expected to be released soon on the official website i.e. through the Amrita Online Admissions Portal (AOAP).
