About JKCET 2023

About Exam

The Jammu and Kashmir Common Entrance Test (JKCET) is a state-level exam conducted by the Jammu & Kashmir Board of Professional Entrance Examination (JKBOPEE). The exam is carried out by JKBOPEE to provide admission to several undergraduate engineering courses in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.

If JKBOPEE later finds out that you failed to meet the eligibility, it will lead to disqualification from the exam. The authorities will release the JKCET 2023 admit cards for eligible candidates.
