It may be mentioned that this the last year that WBJEE Board is conducting the examination. From the next year, the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Examinations (NEET) will be implemented throughout the country.
The Supreme Court directed to hold the NEET, a single entrance examination from this yea. However, various states including West Bengal had opposed it as the students were not prepared for the examination.
The Central government brought an ordinance partially overturning the Supreme Court order and allowed the states to conduct their own entrance examination for this year if they wished to.
