    WBJEE Rank Rule

    WBJEE Rank Rule

    If one analyzes the WBJEE Rank List of previous years, one can easily identify a trend in the ranks achieved and colleges granted. There are basically four rules followed in the rank system, which can cause ranks to vary from person to person.

    1. More Marks means Less Crowd

    Whenever a student scores high, the competition will be less for him/her. The reason behind this is that there are very few students who are able to score in the upper bracket. Thus, rank does not vary much with marks.

    1. Less Marks means More Crowd 

    If a student scores less (for example: 40, 50, or 60), there will be a huge competition crowd as there will be numerous students who would have secured the same marks and fall under the same bracket. In such case, even difference of 1 mark can cause a shift of 500-600 rank.

    1. Negative Marking can cause a Drop in Rank

    If there are two students who have obtained same marks, but there is a difference in rank. Why? This is primarily because one of them might have marked higher number of wrong answers. For example, there are two students A & B. Both of them get a score of 50. However, A marked higher number of negative questions, say 5; and B marked 0 negative questions. In this case, A will get a rank of approximately 8000 whereas B will get a rank of 7500. Thus, there’s a high demand of accuracy while attempting paper.

    1. Subject Priority

    If two students get to score same, their rank is decide on the subject priority. Subject Priority means the number of questions attempted from Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. This is how priority chart flows down. Take for example, two students, X & Y, both get a score of 80 marks. X attempted 50 questions from Mathematics (highest) whereas Y attempted 40 questions from Physics (highest). Since X attempted more number of questions from Priority I subject, s/he will get a higher rank than Y.
