WBJEE 2020 PAPER ANALYSIS
STATE LEVEL OFFLINE TEST
WBJEE Paper Analysis 2020: Paper Analysis is important to get an idea about the difficulty level of the question paper. The paper analysis of WBJEE will also help the candidates preparing for the exam in upcoming years. The major sections of the exam are Physics, Chemistry, and Maths.
Following the previous year's trend, this year too, the entrance exam will be conducted in offline (pen-paper) mode on Feb 2, 2020. The complete paper analysis of WBJEE 2020 is provided below. The following article will help you to understand the trends that are followed in the WBJEE in the last few years. Read on to get an idea about the difficulty level of the question paper.
In WBJEE 2020, candidates had appeared for two papers on Feb 2, 2020.
WBJEE 2019 was held successfully on May 26, 2019. There were no major hiccups for students as the paper was well within the prescribed syllabus. However, with the restrained time limit, candidates struggled slightly to finish the exam on time particularly Paper I (Mathematics).
The paper analysis provides information on the difficulty level of the examination based on various sources like expert’s advice, coaching institutes etc. that provide more granular insight to aspirants. Candidates appearing for WBJEE must go through paper analysis as it provides vital information about the important topics and their weightage based on previous years experience.
A detailed review for each section is discussed in the article below:
The Physics paper had three sections – Section A (50x1=50), Section B (15x2=30), and Section C (10x2=20). In section A, questions were of a moderately easy level while others were slightly conceptual in nature. Overall, students had no major trouble in getting through the first section.
However, Section B was comparatively tough and lengthy. All the questions were application based. No major surprises or difficulty was awaiting students in Section C.
Physics question paper was also bifurcated into three sections – Section A (30x1=30), and Section B (5x2=10), Section A and B were quite easy to attempt and scoring. As per experts, only two or three questions in both the section were conceptual in nature.
Section C was really a bonus section. All the questions were quite easy to attempt and based on the prescribed chapters and formula that were part of the 10+2 curriculum. There were actually no conceptual or application-oriented questions.
Chemistry kept its reputation of being the easiest section in WBJEE. The question paper has the same pattern in terms of distribution and categorization of questions as Physics. There were no numerals and all the questions were of moderate difficulty level.
Overall, WBJEE was easier in terms of difficulty level if compared to JEE Main. However, since candidates need to solve 155 questions in 4 hours as compared to 90 questions in 3 hours, many struggled to finish each paper on time. Those who had taken mock tests and solved previous year papers are likely to get a better score with their enhanced speed and precision.

Based on the difficulty level of the previous year, the exam is predicted to be moderate. Given below is the table showing the good attempt count for scoring well.
|Subject||Question Count||Good Attempt Count|
In the overall analysis, the exam was moderate while Mathematics and Chemistry were comparatively easy when compared to Physics. For Mathematics, though the difficulty level was low, but it was long to solve 75 questions in just 2 hours.
The section was blended with easy and difficult questions, but the latter had the majority. There were more of application-based questions than concept-based questions. Candidates who attempted 25-30 questions with around 80% accuracy made a good score.
Given below are the important topics covered in WBJEE 2017 exam:
|Laws of Motion||Hydrostatics||Hydrodynamics||Alternating Current||Dual Nature of Matter|
|Heat and Thermodynamics||Rotational Motion||Kinematics||Optics||Electrostatics|
|Electromagnetic Induction||Magnetism||Current Electricity||-||-|
Based on previous year questions, it was noted that Chemistry has always been easy when compared to the other 2 sections. Here, more of concept-based questions were present with few twisted questions to trick the candidates. Like Physics, an attempt of 25 and above questions with 80% accuracy was good.
|Equilibrium||s-block components||d-block Components||Atomic Structure||Chemical Bonding|
|Hydrocarbons||Aldehydes and Ketones||Haloalkanes||Amines||-|
WBJEE Mathematics has always been easier when compared to JEE Main. The questions were simple, but the candidate needed a lot of practice. Candidates who had done the same secured good result.
Permutation and Combinations
Matrices and Determinants

Given below are the important topics expected for WBJEE 2020. The weightage assigned to each topic as depicted in the charts is based on the analysis of previous years’ question papers
The weightage among all the topics was distributed evenly in the Physics section. Topics were also evenly selected from class XI and XII syllabus.
|Heat & Thermodynamics||6%|
|Work, Power & Energy||5%|
|Solids & Semiconductor Devices||5%|
|Modern Physics – Atomic Models||5%|
|Laws of Motion||4%|
As pointed before Chemistry is generally easier than other two subjects but there are few topics which might have greater prominence and are important to study. Some major topics to be focused upon are included in the table below.
|Transition Element d & f Block||6%|
|s – Block Elements||6%|
|General Organic Chemistry||6%|
|p- Block Elements||6%|
|Carboxylic Acids & Derivatives||4%|
|Alcohol Phenol Ether||4%|
Mathematics has never been easy than what WBJEE offers. One must pay attention to the below-given topics as they are easy but lengthy. Vectors and Probability are the two chapters with generally the highest weightage.
|Three – Dimensional Geometry||6%|
|Matrices & Determinants||5%|
|Sets, Relation & Functions||5%|
|Theory of Equations||4%|
|Permutation & Combination||4%|
Ques: What will be the type of questions asked in WBJEE 2020?
