OJEE Syllabus 2016


Last year, initially the OJEE exam was scrapped for engineering admissions in the state of Odisha and JEE Main score and rank was adopted for the same. However, then the Board decided to conduct OJEE as well. Hence, the paper was conducted. The admission in the college of Odisha was granted on the basis of JEE Main as well as OJEE written test. Hence, below is the OJEE Syllabus for the aspirants. The OJEE 2016 syllabus will be released after the release of the information brochure. However, till then candidates may check OJEE syllabus for the previous year. 

OJEE Syllabus 2016

By reading the syllabus of OJEE 2016, the candidates will know about the topics, subjects, the level of study and preparation strategy for the exam. Thus, it is advised to read the OJEE Syllabus 2016 thoroughly before starting the preparation. It will also help candidates in creating a plan where they can give time to more difficult subject before moving to easier ones.
