WBJEE 2022 is scheduled to be conducted on 23rd April but there is uncertainty regarding the WBJEEB officials will conduct the exam on the given date or postpone it amid the rising number of Omicron cases in India. Check all details from the news below.

WBJEE 2022 Postponement Scare Amid Rising COVID Cases

With the rising number of cases of the Omicron variant of the SARS-Cov-2 virus in India, uncertainty regarding the conduct of several major entrance exams like WBJEE, JEST, GATE etc is at its peak. With state governments restricting movement through night curfews and weekend curfews, there is a sense of uncertainty among the aspirants whether or not the WBJEEB officials will conduct the WBJEE 2022 exam as per the current schedule. If the cases continue to surge in the coming days, the WBJEEB officials might likely postpone the WBJEE 2022 exam as the majority of the aspirants might not get their first vaccine doses by then. No official statement or hint regarding the postponement of this year’s WBJEE examination is out yet on the official site. 

Candidates aspiring to appear in the WBJEE 2022 examination must make sure they visit the official WBJEEB website at regular intervals for all the latest updates regarding the exam. They are also advised to not pay any heed to claims made by unverified or untrusted sources. These are uncertain times and a piece of single unverified news can cause panic amongst the WBJEE candidates. 

According to the CollegeDekho WBJEE experts, it is highly unlikely that the WBJEE 2022 exams will be postponed as it is scheduled to be held in April. According to some leading medical experts, India will experience the pang of Omicron in February and within a month, it will subside. If the claims of these experts are to be believed, then WBJEE 2022 can go ahead as per the current schedule. The candidates are once again advised to only follow the instructions available on the official WBJEEB website.
