Applications for the state JEE will have to be submitted online between January 11 and February 16. The JEE board, which conducts the exam scheduled for April 21 this year, said on Wednesday that candidates would have to log in to www.wbjeeb.nic.in for the application process.
This is the first time that the entire application process will be available online. The board has sought help from the state government to set up application kiosks at all 350 block offices across the state, said sources.
This year, students will have to register online to access the form and fill it up. Once candidates are through with this process, they will be issued an e-challan, said a board official.
The candidates will then have to carry a print-out of the challan, either to any Allahabad Bank branch or to post offices to pay the price of the forms.
The bank and post offices would issue candidates a copy of the challan once payments have been made. Candidates will have to feed in the portal transaction details, following which the board will issue a an online confirmation report.
“Examinees will have to collect a print-out of the report, which they need to fill up. A copy of the e-challan has to be attached along with the signature of the candidate and his/her guardian and two photos of the examinee. The candidate will also give a left thumb impression on the report and send it to the board by speed post within March 28,” said Bhaskar Gupta, the chairman of the examination board.
The board will start to send out admit cards from April 1, an official said. In case an applicant does not receive the admit card seven days before the examination, he or she may download a soft copy of the card from the board’s website and appear in the exam with certain documents, which will be mentioned in the online prospectus, said an official.
