The Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) Committee will activate five nodal centres for the document verification exercise after registration process is over. They include:
 
"After the verification is over, we will also publish a list of the candidates eligible for counselling," Chairman of OJEE Tushar Kant Nath said. 
 
As per the schedule, eligible students will be asked for indicating their choice between September 3rd and 5th and the first round seat allotment will be declared on September 6. Between September 7 and 11, provisional admissions will be carried out. The fee structure has already been made available to the candidates.

As many as 2,916 candidates have qualified in the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) for admission into 650 MBBS and 150 BDS seats in Odhisha. Fifteen per cent of seats are reserved for all India ranked candidates.
 
Note* - there will be no admission into 100 seats of Hi Tech Medical College at Rourkela and Sardar Rajas Medical College at Bhawanipatna as the Medical Council of India has refused permission. The Bhawanipatna-based college has been in news for quite a long time for inadequate infrastructure leading to students' agitation. The CBI had also raided it over alleged financial irregularities.
 
As many as 2,916 candidates will be vying for 650 MBBS and 150 BDS seats. At least 15 per cent seats would be reserved for all-India ranked candidates.

Selection procedure for admission to MBBS & BDS medical colleges in Odhisha:

  • After choice filling and locking, the seat allotment will be carried out in three rounds.
  • The first two rounds will be meant for all seats except 15 per cent quota reserved for all-India candidates which will be filled by counselling at the CBSE end.
  • If seats from the all-India quota fall vacant, it will go to the State quota and included in third round counselling.
However, the aspiring candidates will get only one opportunity to register themselves. "While registration is mandatory, the candidates must register themselves during the August 24th -28th period and get their documents verified subsequently. This way, they will be eligible for all the rounds of counselling which will be held as per rankings and seat allotments," Chairman of OJEE Tushar Kant Nath said.
 
The OJEE, which created a separate link on its official website for MBBS and BDS admission, has also uploaded a step-by-step guideline for the students to understand the process and abide by it.
 

Important Documents for admission to MBBS & BDS medical colleges in Odhisha:

  • Residential certificate as students, who are natives of Odisha. It is quite unlike the engineering courses where candidates who have appeared for their qualifying examinations in the State can become eligible for admission.
 
"The students must understand the guidelines and carry documents required for the counselling process. The residential certificate would be the most important document for them," Nath said.
 
As per the counselling schedule, the first round of allotment will be announced on September 6 while provisional admission will be carried out from September 7 to 11. Similarly, the second round allotment will be declared on September 15, followed by the admissions. The third round of seat allotment will be held on September 23. If any vacancy arises after that, spot counselling will be held on September 29 after which the admission will be closed.
