WBJEE 2020 PATTERN & SYLLABUS
STATE LEVEL OFFLINE TEST
The state-level engineering and pharmacy papers are carried out in offline mode. Questions are to be answered on specially designed optical machine-readable response (OMR) sheet, which will be evaluated by Optical Mark Recognition method. Candidates are required to appear for two papers in WBJEE viz. Paper I – Mathematics & Paper II – Physics and Chemistry (combined).
Candidates who take both Paper 1 and Paper 2 will be eligible for admission in Engineering, Technology, Architecture and Pharmacy programs. Candidates who take only Paper 2 will be eligible for admission in only pharmacy programs except in Jadavpur University. Candidates who take only Paper 1 will not be eligible for admission in any program.
The marking scheme of WBJEE is divided into 3 categories:
|Mode of Exam||Offline Mode (OMR Based Examination)|
|Examination Duration||2 Hours for each paper (Total 4 hours)|
|Papers||Paper I - Mathematics; Paper II - Physics and Chemistry|
|Type of Questions||Multiple Choice Questions (Objective)|
|Number of Questions|
|Category-wise Division of Questions|
|Mode of Answering||There will be four alternative answers for each question. The correct response has to be selected by the candidates by darkening the appropriate circle completely with blue/black ball point pen.|
