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.
