History of JAKBOPEE
Before 1987 selections for Medical and Engineering courses in the State were made by a designated Government Department in the Civil Secretariat as an additional item of its work. Gradually, the number of students who were appearing in Entrance Examinations increased and, as a consequence, the work of organizing Entrance Examinations also increased. The Government of Jammu and Kashmir, therefore, in the year 1987 constituted a full–time examining body, Competent Authority Entrance Examinations. The purpose of creating a full-time examining body was to organize Entrance Tests in a more transparent and orderly manner on the pattern followed in other parts of the country. The Competent Authority thus constituted performed its task of conducting Entrance Examinations in a fairly satisfactory manner.
