As many as 5,766 students have applied for the test for admissions into B-Tech, 905 students for MBA and 250 students for MCA stream.
Earlier, Orissa High Court on August 4 had directed OJEE authorities for a second test while hearing a petition filed by Odisha Private Engineering Colleges Association (OPECA) to fill up vacant seats in B-Tech stream lying vacant in the ‘reserved category.’
The Court had made it clear that general and reserve category students can appear for the special OJEE for MBA and MCA. The general category students on merit can be allowed to take admissions if there is still vacancy under the reserve category.
Besides, the Court had also directed to State Government to complete the entire admission process by August 14.
