22,000 candidates to appear in JKCET

As many as 22,000 candidates are appearing in Jammu and Kashmir Common Entrance Test (JKCET-2011) scheduled to be held from Saturday for which the Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) has set up 35 centres across the state.
 The test would be held for 2-days in four phases with two papers in one day for selecting candidates for MBBS, BE, BDS, BVSC and other allied professional courses run by the government and private institutes in the state.
 Officials said that about 12,000 candidates from Kashmir division and 10000 from Jammu are expected to appear in the test. About 19 centers have been established in Jammu, while 16 have been set up in Kashmir.

 On June 25, candidates will appear for Chemistry and Physics papers while on June 26, test would be held for Biology and Mathematics. 

 Sources said that Crime Branch and General Administration Department (GAD) have deputed special observers to keep impersonators at bay.

 Giving details about the arrangements made for keeping a check on any type of unfair means, the Controller examination, Gopal Gupta said that fool proof measures have been put in place. “So far everything is running smoothly”, Gupta said.

 He said that as an added security measure, the BOPEE, for the past few years, had made it mandatory that each candidate who appears in the test has his photograph attached with the answer sheet. “We are in constant touch with the police department and have sought their help to keep a watch on the undesirable elements”, he said.

 Pertinently, during last years a few impersonation cases were detected in the entrance test conducted by Batra Medical College, which holds separate test for the MBBS course run by the trust. Officials said that to help students to know about their performance, they would be provided with the carbon copies of the answer sheets after the completion of the test. “Answer key will be uploaded on the website on June 26,” officials added.
