Bhubaneswar, Jun 22:
Authorities of the Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) today extended the last date of application for Special OJEE -2015 in Odisha to July 10.
The authorities had earlier announced June 22 as the last date of application.
This was informed by OJEE chairman Tusharkant Nath.

There will be 90 marks of multiple questions with 30 marks each in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
The students have been asked to report at the examination centres 30 minutes before the commencement of the test.
It may be mentioned that the Odisha High Court had asked the OJEE to conduct Special OJEE test-2015 for the remaining seats after the admission of the students in the B.Tech streams who have qualified JEE Mains examinations this year.
The directive of the court had come in response to a writ petition by the Odisha Private Engineering College Association (OPECA) alleging that a large number seats in the private colleges are falling vacant due to JEE Main examinations.
