Election pushes WBJEE 2011 to 22nd May 2011
Aspirants of both the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations (WBJEE 2011) and the Delhi pre-medical test might have to choose one as the WBJEE has been postponed from 17th April 2011 to 22nd May 2011. The decision was taken on Tuesday in the wake of the West Bengal Assembly Elections. The Delhi pre-medical test (DUMET 2011) is also scheduled for 22nd May 2011 .
“Practical difficulties in holding the exam on the earlier announced date were reported from various institutions. Problems will arise in booking the exam centres. Secondly, the school officials have been given polling duties in various districts and will leave before the elections begin on April 18. Moreover, transport services will be hit. These have, thus, forced the board members to decide on postponing the exams,” said WBJEE chairman Siddhartha Dutta.
The exam schedule on 22nd May 2011 :
- Mathematics from 9:30 am to 11:30am,
- physics and chemistry between 12:30 and 2:30pm,
- biology from 3:30pm to 5:30pm.
“However, if the court directs for a common entrance tests in medical, we will obey it and inform the students accordingly. The Supreme Court order has not yet reached me. We shall also wait for the MCI nod,” he added. The announcement of results may also be delayed. “In case there is a delay, we will appeal in the Supreme Court to give us extra time,” said Dutta.
This year, around 1,30,000 students will take the test. Last year, the results were declared within 40 days of the exam.
