The West Bengal government on May 30 decided to conduct its own common entrance exam on July 20 for admission to MBBS and BDS courses.

Officials said it was decided in a meeting that the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations Board (WBJEEB) will hold the state common entrance examination WBJEEM-2016.

The syllabus will remain same as it was declared earlier and candidates will not be required to submit any fresh application or deposit fees for appearing in the examination.
