OJEE to Start Over Again by Odisha Government

Nov 13, 2014 12:18 IST

    Odisha Joint Entrance Examination along with the line of JEE Mains is being thought out by the Odisha Government and they are reconsidering to start OJEE from next year onwards. The national level joint entrance exam (JEE) was scheduled this year on 07 November 2014.

    The decision has to be taken by the Policy Planning Body (PPB), which is the top advisory body. They would decide whether to continue admission of the students depending on the JEE Mains or re-introduce OJEE along with JEE. Once PPB submits its report the state government would take the final call keeping the interest of the students in mind. Admission to various engineering courses were made through the JEE main examination scores of the students in the year 2012.

    The demand for separate OJEE along with the lines of JEE Mains was slated by Odisha Private Engineering College Association (OPECA). They demanded the reinforcement of OJEE for admissions in the first year B.Tech course. They justified their demand by saying that there are almost 60 percent of the seats in the private engineering colleges are lying vacant every year and the number of aspirant appearing for the JEE Mains has significantly dropped since OJEE has stopped.  The association is demanding the OJEE to start take place again so the both OJEE and the JEE passed students can take admissions in various engineering colleges in the state.

    OJEE would also provide students with an added option through which if they fail to secure their berth through the JEE Mains, they could do the same through the OJEE scores. There are very few states presently who are relying completely on the JEE Mains for the admission of engineering students in the states.
