This was the first offline public examination this year after the WBJEE was held last year, a WBCSC official said.
The exams were held with strict adherence to COVID norms in 189 centres across 68 subdivisions of state and Kolkata. “Despite the present pandemic situation more than two-third of the total registered candidates wrote their papers this year,” Chairman of WBCSC Dipak Kar said.The SET examination is held to select Assistant Professors for state-run and state-aided colleges. The Commission expects to publish results within three months.
