WBJEE 2017 exam date clashes with other exams

Last Updated - April 06, 2017

This year, thousands of students in the state will have to choose between writing the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination (WBJEE) or the admission test for the NDA (National Defence Academy). The exam dates for the 2 most popular entrance tests, one conducted by the WBJEE Board (WBJEEB) and the other by the UPSC, are clashing. The exam date for both the examinations is April 23, 2017. Students preparing for NDA exam have kept WBJEE as a second choice. But now, all the aspirants are nervous as National Defence Academy, WBJEE & Naval Academy Examination are almost falling on the same date.

It is also being prospected that WBJEE Exam Date might also clash with NEET Exam Date. In a statement by an influential source, he says, “We are still waiting for a confirmation of the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) date. If it is held on the same, day then we will be forced to postpone the exam. From next year, we will ensure that no such exam dates clash with WBJEE".

The WBJEE Board won’t change the examination date, as released in an official statement. WBJEE Board Chairman, Malayendu Saha said, “In October we had informed almost 55 examinations conducting body about the date of holding the test.” Around 8,000 applications have been received so far. Now it is extremely difficult to defer the examination date.

The WBJEE authorities, till now, are reluctant to shift the date to the dismay of thousands of students who are preparing for both. Many students sent a mail requested to postpone WBJEE Exam date 2017, as the preparations are on in full swing for both the exams but all in vein.

Which Exam to Choose?

Parents argue that NDA examination has an age bar that allows the students to appear in the test within a stipulated time. Whereas the age limit for taking other exams is much higher. Besides that, the number of boys opting for high-ranking defence sector posts is much less. Therefore, those who are interested in taking the exam for the defence sector, should be encouraged and date of WBJEE exam should be deferred.

We hope the necessary course of action is executed. Whatever the authorities decide, should work in the favour of all candidates.
