It is a centralised state-run exam for admission to many private and public medical, engineering, and management institutions in Odisha. B. Architecture, B. Pharmacy, BDS, MBA, MCA, PDCM, PGDM, M. Pharma, and M. Tech are among the courses examined after the 12th grade. MBSS and B. Tech courses were previously included, but they were removed after the announcement of the All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) and JEE (Main).

The number of students taking the exam has increased to around 300,000. The exam is accompanied by students who studied Physics, Chemistry, and Biology in the pure science stream in class 12 level. It is currently only being conducted for engineering colleges due to the announcement of the All India Common Medical Entrance Exam (NEET).
