WBJEE Marking scheme

WBJEE Marking scheme specifies the distribution of marks over the total number of questions in the WBJEE question paper. There are three categories of questions in WBJEE exam for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, marking scheme for which has been described below:
Category I
  • Only one option is correct, correct response yield one mark.
  • An incorrect response will yield -1/4 (25% negative) marks
  • For any combination of response with more than one option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and will yield -1/4 (25% negative) marks.

Category II 

  • Only one option is correct
  • 2 marks will be awarded for each correct answer
  • 0.5 marks will be deducted for each wrong answer
  • Marking more than one answer option in the OMR sheet will be treated as incorrect answer, which means 0.5 marks will be deducted
  • Leaving a question unanswered will fetch the 0 (zero) mark.
Category III
  • One or more options may be correct. Only correct responses will yield 2(two) marks
  • Any combination of correct and incorrect response will be treated as incorrect and will yield 0 (zero) mark.
  • For partially correct responses, marks awarded will be = 2 x (no. of correct options marked ? total no. of correct options)

How to answer in WBJEE:

  • Questions are to be answered on a specially designed Optical Machine Readable response (OMR) sheet.
  • The sheet will be evaluated by the method of Optical Mark Recognition. 
  • As there will be 4 options for each question asked, the candidate has to indicate the response by darkening the appropriate circle completely with blue/black ballpoint pen.
  • Any other kind of marking e.g. filling the bubble incompletely, filling with pencil, cross mark, tick mark, dot mark, circular mark, overwriting, scratching, erasing, white ink, marking outside the bubble etc. may lead to wrong/partial/ambiguous reading of the response.
  • The marked responses cannot be edited/changed/erased/modified. Hence, it is advised that the candidate should be sure about the answer before marking and should not put any stray mark on which he/she does not want to attempt to memorising the formulas and equations from NCERT books, a candidate should be well equipped with other best books for WBJEE.

Calculation of WBJEE Cutoff Scores

The cut off is determined in 2 steps-

Calculation of Scores
The scores are calculated by adding the total number of correct answers and subtracting the incorrect answers. The calculation of scores varies for each category defined under WBJEE Exam Pattern. 

Category 1

  • Only 1 option is correct.
  • Each question carries 1 mark.
  • ¼ marks will be deducted on marking incorrect response.

Category 2

  • Only 1 option is correct.
  • Each question carries 2 marks.
  • ½ marks will be deducted on marking incorrect response.

Category 3

  • 1 or more options may be correct.
  • Only all correct response will fetch 2 marks.
  • Combination of correct and incorrect response will be treated incorrectly.
  • Partially correct answer: total marks = 2 X (no. of correct options/total no. of correct options)

Publication of GMR

Based on the above criteria, marks obtained in WBJEE 2020, the board publishes two merit lists- General Merit Rank List (GMR) and Pharmacy Merit Rank List (PMR). Only those students who have appeared in both the papers will be considered for merit ranking. 
For admission in B.Tech and B.Arch courses, only GMR is taken into consideration. The rank list is prepared in descending order of total marks obtained in WBJEE 2020.

WBJEE Round wise Counselling:
WBJEE counselling process will comprise of three rounds. In case the seats are left vacant, a fourth-round is conducted by the Board.

Registration For Counselling
As the initial step, candidates need to register themselves to take part in counselling. After registration, candidates need to fill the choices within the stipulated time period and lock them. In case, the choices are not locked, they will automatically be locked after the time period is over.

Round 1
After the choices of registered candidates for e-counselling are locked, the total number of seats (almost 36000) present with the board will be allotted to such candidates based on their rank and choices. After the seat allotment, candidates need to report to the corresponding reporting centres. For the second round, the list of vacant seats is generated.

Round 2
In this round, the left-over seats are allotted to un-allocated candidates. The choices are also upgraded for the candidates. The candidates here, need not report to Reporting Centers if they do not want to change their choices.  Just like round 1, the list of vacant seats is generated for the last round

Eligibility Criteria for the second round of Counselling:

  • Group–I: Registered candidates who did not score any seat in Round 1.
  • Group-II: Registered candidates who got a seat in the Round 1 and visited the reporting centre but the allotted seat was cancelled due to non-fulfilment of eligibility criteria.
  • Group–III: Registered candidates who were allotted a seat in Round 1, reported to the reporting centre, completed admission formalities and also submitted willingness ‘Yes’ for up-gradation in further rounds of counselling.
  • Group–IV: Candidates who were allotted a seat in Round 1, reported to the reporting centre, completed admission formalities and submitted willingness ‘No’ for up-gradation. The allotted seat for such candidates would be retained in the same category or in the upgraded category.

Not eligible for 2nd Round

  • Did not report to RC after seat allotment in the first round.
  • Candidates reported but withdrew from RC.
  • Failure to confirm the documents.

The seat is allocated to un-allocated candidates along with choice up-gradation. The candidates here, need not report to Reporting Centers if they do not want to change their choices.
