WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern

The West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination, popularly known as the WBJEE is a gateway for admission to undergraduate engineering programmes in West Bengal. Every year, the West Bengal Entrance Examination Board (WBJEEB) is going to conduct WBJEE 2018 exam on April 22, 2018. Interested candidates can apply for the exam from the first week of January 2018 tentatively. In the meantime, applicants can take a look at the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern and start their preparation accordingly.

Since WBJEEB did not announce the WBJEE Exam Pattern for the year 2018 as of now, we would like to share the tentative exam pattern based on the previous years’ to help you to start your preparation.

(Note: In Category I and Category II, out of 4, only one option will be correct whereas, in Category III, one or more options can be correct.)

Let’s take a look at the scoring methodology of WBJEE 2018:

WBJEE 2018 Scoring Scheme:

Category

Marking Scheme

Category I

Only one out four options will be correct

Each correct answer will carry 1 mark

There will be a negative marking of ¼ marks for each wrong answer.

In case you mark more than one option, the answer will be treated as wrong and ¼ marks will be deducted.

Category II

Only one out four options will be correct

Each correct answer will carry 2 marks

There will be a negative marking of ½ marks for each wrong answer.

In case you mark more than one option, the answer will be treated as wrong and ½ marks will be deducted.

Category II

One or more options may be correct

Only all correct responses will carry 2 marks

In case of combination of correct and wrong options marked, the answer will be treated as wrong and no marks will be given

For a partially correct response, marks awarded will be = 2 x (No. of correct options marked / total no. of correct options).

WBJEE 2018 Exam Structure

WBJEE 2018 is going to be conducted in two different slots on the same day, which makes it a bit difficult exam to crack for students. Hence, we would like to let you know the detailed exam pattern of WBJEE 2018.

The first slot will comprise of 75 questions based on Mathematics whereas the second slot will contain 80 questions based on Physics and Chemistry subjects. The total number of questions will be 155, which will be divided into three categories. WBJEE 2018 will be an offline exam containing objective type questions.
