WBJEE 2020 RESERVATION
STATE LEVEL OFFLINE TEST
WBJEEB provides reservations to candidates belonging to SC/ST/OBC-A/OBC-B/ PwD category students and those who fall under Defense quota. Also, each participating institute has its own reservation criteria. To avail the use of reservation scheme offered by WBJEE, candidates must mention their correct category during the registration. Certificates proofing the reservation will be required to present at the time of WBJEE Counselling.
In 2019, the Jadavpur University Executive Council of Engineering Departments introduced the 90% reservation for domicile candidates from 45%, making remaining seats available for other students. The modalities of domicile reservation were to be decided later but the decision got a thumbs up with only 2 engineering departments opposing the proposal out of 13. Rationale provided was that since JU is a state-run university and accepts several funds from the state government, it is justified to keep maximum reservation for state students.
