JAMMU, June 9: The National vice president of IGM Rashid Azam Inqlabi has urged the LG of Jammu and Kashmir to extend date for filing of application forms for the paramedical entrance test.
Inqlabi said the Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) of J&K had invited the application for admission to various para-medical training courses having the basic qualifications of Matric (10th class) and twelfth class (10+2) in the month of May but aspirants residing in the far-flung area failed to submit their forms for entrance test due to lockdown and prevailing COVID situation.
He said these aspirants approached the BOPEE for an extension of last date for filing of forms for the training of these courses but authorities of BOPEE are not willing to extend the date. Inqlabi stressed that if the BOPEE goes by his previous advertisement even then they can not finalize the selection list because they have to wait for the result of 10+2 exams to be declared by CBSE and J&K Board of School Education.
Inqlabi said further at national level for NEET examination, the competent authority has not invited the application till date and will invite the same after result of 10+2 exams but BOPEE is not willing to give the chance to aspirants of far flung areas to appear in the test.
He requested the LG Manoj Sinha to interfere into the matter in the interest of youth of Jammu & Kashmir and direct the GAD and BOPEE to extend the date for filing of forms for paramedical courses.
