The state joint entrance board is likely to hold the entrance test for admission to engineering colleges and pharmacy institutes on April 21 next year.
JEE board chairman Malayendu Saha announced the dates while releasing the 2018 exam results.
“We have tentatively fixed April 21, 2019, which is a Sunday,” Saha said.
The board will hold mock counselling across 33 centres so that the modalities of e-counselling are clear to the candidates and they can opt for the institute and the discipline of their preference.
“The mock counselling will start from May 28 and continue till June 2,” Saha said.
The details of the centres will be uploaded on the website, http://www.wbjeeb.in on Thursday.
“The e-counselling is likely to start from June 4, provided the Plus II results of all boards are declared by then,” Saha said.
The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education is still to declare the Plus II results. The CBSE board, too, is yet to declare the Plus II results.
The board has planned to hold the counselling early so that the admission process can be started early and the problem of vacancy, specially, in the private engineering colleges can be avoided. For the same reason, the results were declared early, a board official said.
Last year the results were declared on June 5. This year, the exam was held on April 22 and the results were announced on May 23.
In 2017 the test had been held on April 23.
