JKCET (CET for B.E & B.Tech )
Those who have passed 10+2 exam with PCM and English are eligible to apply for JKCET. The entrance exam is being conducted to fill 2528 number of seats in BE and BTech courses. The importance of this test cannot be under estimated as the candidates appearing in the test have to compete for different Engineering Courses like Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Information Technology, Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Bio-Medical Engineering, which would make them eligible to compete for employment after completion of the course. The candidates have, therefore, to take the examination seriously and pursue studies vigorously so that they compete well after completion of the Degrees.
MD / MS / PG Diploma / MDS Entrance Test
Admission to this course will be done on the basis of NEET PG in MD/MS/PG Diploma and MDS Courses respectively. Large number of candidates from Jammu and Kashmir also appeared in the examination. Ordinarily the students from Jammu and Kashmir compete well in medical entrance examinations but there is further scope for upgrading the skills/knowledge so t figure in the top rank. State of Jammu and Kashm towards 50% national quota seats, therefore, all the seats in the State run medical colleges including the private institute are to be filled up from amongst the to be drawn now by the Board of Professional Entrance Examinations.
MD / MS Ayurveda Entrance Test
The J&K Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) is responsible for admission in MDS course into the Govt. Dental College, Srinagar. Admission will be done on the basis of NEET MDS. The Test meant to select students for MD/MS Ayurveda takes hard toil from the aspirants together with their parents of which BOPEE officials are quite conscious. The merit secured by the canddiates by burning midnight oil can in no case be tinkered with and will be respected.
B.Ed. (Jammu / Kashmir) Entrance Test
This course is for those candidates who wants admission teaching course. The greatest resource and strength in Indian schools is our teachers. They have the greatest impact on student learning, far outweighing the impact of any other education programme or policy. They stand in the interface of the transmission of knowledge, skills and values. Teacher quality is, therefore, crucial and has been globally accepted to be significantly associated with the quality of education in general and students’ learning outcomes in particular.
Three years Diploma Polytechnic Entrance Test
The 21st century is an era of technology and there is a great demand of technically trained youth in the state and country. Polytechnic education plays a vital role in human resource development of a country by creating skilled manpower, enhancing industrial productivity and improving the quality of life. Technical Education covers courses and programs in Engineering, Architecture, Leather and Wood Technology, Computer and Information Technology, Secretarial Management, etc. I offer my good wishes to the candidates for choosing technical education (3 – year Diploma Polytechnic course) as career in their life.

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.
