The Bihar Combined Engineering Competitive Examination Board (BCECEB) has announced that from this year admissions to engineering colleges in Bihar will be done based on the candidate’s score in JEE Main 2019. The Bihar State Government also agrees with the notification released by the examination board. After the announcement of JEE Main 2019 result Paper I, BCECEB will organize the seat allotment through BCECE 2019 Counselling.
The Bihar Examination Board had earlier announced that it will conduct BCECE 2019 in Computer-Based Test (CBT) mode for admission in engineering courses in Bihar Engineering institutes. But, this year, candidates who have appeared or will be appearing for JEE Main are eligible to participate in the BCECE Counselling 2019 directly to get admission to engineering institutes in Bihar.
With the sudden change in the admission process of BCECE 2019, students who were planning to seek admission to engineering institutes in Bihar are in complete confusion. Most of the students appear for various entrance examinations to increase their chances of admission. But now, candidates need to appear for JEE Main 2019 to get admission to the institutes of Bihar.
It is believed that both NTA and BCECE will take a decision which will be for the betterment of students who are aspiring for admission to engineering institutes in Bihar this year. However, any sort of decision regarding this must be taken as soon as possible, so that students seeking admission to engineering institutes in Bihar can plan their future steps according to that.
As we all know that from this year, NTA will be conducting the top national level examinations such as JEE Main, UGC NET, NEET etc. JEE Main January session has been commenced and is going on. The April session of JEE Main 2019 will be held from April 6 to April 20, 2019.
