RANCHI: The Jharkhand Combined Entrance Competitive Examination (JCECE) Board organized an online counseling for admissions to the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NE- ET) for undergraduate courses at the three medical colleges of the state on Saturday. The results of the three-day counseling session, a first of its kind, will be declared on August 29.
Examination controller L Khiyangate said, "The aspirants will first have to register with the website of JCECE with their application number and roll number of NEET-UG. On registration, a password will be generated and sent to the mobile number of the candidate with which one can log in for counselling."
During counseling, candidates will have to fill in their personal information and name the college of their choice. The best thing about online counseling is that candidates do not have to come to the counseling centre in Ranchi or any other city. They can appear in it sitting in the confines of their home town. The students can change their preference till August 27, midnight, he added.
Only those who fall in the rank range given by JCECE will be eligible to appear for counseling. Khiyangate said, "General candidates with a Jharkhand state overall rank from 1 to 418 will be able to appear for counseling, SC candidates with a rank between 1 to 83, ST between 1 to 219, backward class-I having OBC rank between 1-8 and BC-II having OBC rank between 1 to 184 will be allowed to appear for the counseling." tnn
