WBJEE 2013 Held With Strict Rules
The West Bengal Joint Entrance examination (WBJEE) which was scheduled on 21st April (Sunday) was held with strict rules and regulations. The state had introduced all measures to ensure that the examination takes place with no glitches.


In order to prevent impersonation during the exam, the picture and signature of candidates will be put on attendance sheets.

The Chairman of WBJEE, Bhaskar Gupta said "Apart from the special security features like Microcline printing that is being used for admit cards, thumb impression of candidates will also be verified more than twice. Also, during the e- counselling, thumb impression will be verifies. In case of any mismatch is found, the candidate will have to exit from the examination hall."

Moreover, the board has also warned coaching centres against handling out model papers. And, Examination centres which had failed to hold exam smoothly last year has been shifted from their respective schools.

Gupta said that "They are unaware if the question paper they are solving the answers are from set A, B, C or D. It only gives rise to more confusion. The coaching centres should step back from giving out answers".

Around 1,20,000 students took part in the examination across 286 centres among which four centres were outside the state.

WBJEE Chairman had said that "We have decided to hold a test in Silchar too apart from Tripura. These are the areas which have a lot of Bengali residents. In-fact we are waiting for the approval from All Indian Council For Technical Education (AICTE) to know the exact number of seats. Last year the total number of seats were 30,000".

"This is the first year when WBJEE will take only engineering examination. The board has decided to shift examination centres from those schools which had failed to hold smooth tests last year. Those who could not make arrangements with adequate tables and chairs have been removed from the list. Even those with inadequate generator facilities have been left out," Gupta added.

However, the exam was held successfully. The examination centres were in complete control of the JEE Board and students took of the exam very seriously. With the tight security all over the centre no malfunction had a chance to occur anyways.
