      WBJEE-Factors Affecting Cut Off

      Factors Affecting WBJEE Cut Off

      WBJEEB will not consider class 12 marks for calculating ranks in WBJEE. This simply means that aspirants must perform better in the entrance exam for securing a good rank in the entrance examination. The Board will decide the cut off on the following basis:

      • Number of students who appear for the exam
      • Level of difficulty of exam
      • Total number of seats available 

      A total of 36,000 seats are expected to be filled in 104 participating colleges of WBJEE 2020. Based on the papers appeared in WBJEE followed by marks scores thereof, the Board will prepare two merit lists namely GMR and PMR. Each participating college of WBJEE will release separate cut off lists for different courses.

      WBJEE-Calculation of Score

      Calculation of WBJEE Cutoff Scores

      The calculation of scores is done through the following steps:

      Calculation of Score

      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 incorrect.
      • 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. Check WBJEE Rank List

      WBJEE Cut off FAQs

      Ques. Who will be deciding the WBJEE Cut off scores?

      Answer: The WBJEE 2020 Cut off scores are decided by West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination Board (WBJEEB) and will be declared soon after the WBJEE 2020 Results.

      Ques. Will there be a separate cut off requirement of the participating institutes as well?

      Ques. If I do not meet the WBJEE Cut Off score/rank, will I be allowed to appear for the e-counselling?

      Ques. I have secured a WBJEE rank. Am I eligible for e-counselling?

      Answer: Everyone who secures a WBJEE rank may not be eligible for e-counselling.

The cut-off score will be announced at the time of WBJEE Result declaration.

      Ques. I have secured a merit ranking in WBJEE. Does that guarantee me admission to the institute and program of my choice?

      Ques. What is the number of participating institutes in WBJEE?

      Answer: Around 104 institutes participate in the WBJEE counselling to allocate seats in around 42 engineering disciplines. Each participating institute will release their own discipline-wise opening and closing cut-off scores for admission.

      Ques. What is the WBJEE seat matrix?

      Answer: Course-wise and institute-wise availability of seats as provided by the participating institutes is termed as seat matrix and is published before counselling and seat allotment. Based on seat matrix, the final seat allotment is done through WBJEE e-counselling.

      Ques. I have secured the cut-off score as specified by WBJEE. How do I appear for the e-counselling?

      Answer: WBJEE qualified candidates, in order to participate in the e-counselling process, have to register online by paying the specific counselling fees and fill the preferred program/institute choices. Check WBJEE Counselling
