Special OJEE on July 22 to fill up vacant seats

Bhubaneswar: The State government on Monday decided to conduct a special Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) on July 22 to fill up seats falling vacant in private technical institutions.

The results would be announced on July 25.

Students willing to appear for the offline test have been asked to apply between June 25 and July 13.

Pharm, M.Plan, MCA, MBA, Integrated MBA and Lateral Entry to B.Tech, B.Pharm and MCA courses in universities, government and private colleges of the state.

The results were announced on May 25.
