The medical entrance exam of WBJEE 2016 is going to be held on July 20 and the Board has released the admit cards for all applicants. The admit cards for WBJEEM can be accessed at the official site wbjeeb.nic.in by using registration number and password. The test would be conducted across the state for shortlisting meritorious students for admissions in medical courses offered in 17 government medical and dental institutions.
The West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations Board had earlier conducted the entrance test for admissions to Engineering & Technology, Pharmacy and Architecture courses on May 17, but did away with the test for medical and dental courses admissions as the Hon’ Supreme Court had scrapped all the common entrance tests for medical admissions being administered separately by States and brought in NEET. It was only on May 24, when the Central government brought an ordinance, giving States exemption from NEET for the academic session 2016-17. The WBJEE Board issued the notification on May 30, stating that the entrance test for medical admissions would be conducted on July 20. The Board had also informed all students that they need not submit any fresh application, but they will be issued fresh admit cards. Keeping up with the schedule, the Board has released WBJEEM admit card for 20 July exam at its official site.
WBJEE medical entrance exam will be conducted in two shifts with Biological Sciences (Botany & Zoology) paper from 10.30 AM to 1 PM and Physics + Chemistry paper from 2 PM to 4 PM. Both the question papers will consist of objective type questions, with 150 marks for Biological Sciences paper and 100 for Physics + Chemistry paper. The Board would publish OMR sheets and model answer keys on August 9, followed by the result announcement in the fourth week of August. The online counselling for admissions would then begin from August 28 and will be done in three rounds. The whole counselling process would end by 30 September.
As less than a week is left for the WBJEE Medical entrance exam, the Board has made all the necessary arrangements. Meanwhile, all the students are also preparing hard to crack a seat through the entrance exam. The admit cards are available at the official site and the candidates are advised to check all the details mentioned in it.
