Odisha to join JEE Mains for Second Time


 Odisha Policy planning board on professional education, Bhubaneshwar made a recommendation to the Odisha government to join JEE Mains 2015 which is conducted for admission to the premier technical institutes- IIITs and NITs etc.  in the country. 

Odisha government however joined the JEE Mains last year for admission in the state’s technical institutes.  But there were a large number of seats left vacant in the colleges due to students not being able to make it in the JEE Mains.  Moreover, at the direction of the Odisha High Court, a state level examination called as OJEE was conducted for admissions, but ironically despite the conduct of the examination last year, only 11,000 students took the admission and pursuing technical courses in the state while 37,000 seats were simply lying vacant in the 101 private and 10 government colleges of the state.

 The Odisha Private Engineering Colleges Association (OPECA) has been demanding re-introduction of the OJEE for B.Tech. admissions in the state.  Meanwhile, the application process for  JEE Main 2015 has commenced on 7th November,2014 and the exam will be conducted by CBSE in the month of April, 2015 in both online and offline mode. 

The Policy planning board has left the decision to the state government to hold separate OJEE examination to offer admission to the students even after they participate in the JEE Main.   It will be the second time Odisha will join JEE Mains with Gujarat and Maharashtra to facilitate the aspiring students for admission in the top engineering and technical institutes and the respective state’s technical institute. 

However, the Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) will facilitate for admission into MBA, MCA, lateral entry and Pharmacy in the institutes of the state. Students in the state seeking admission in the above courses will have to appear in state level – OJEE.
