Factors Affecting WBJEE Cut Off

WBJEEB will not consider class 12 marks for calculating ranks in WBJEE. This simply means that aspirants must perform better in the entrance exam for securing a good rank in the entrance examination. The Board will decide the cut off on the following basis:

  • Number of students who appear for the exam
  • Level of difficulty of exam
  • Total number of seats available 

A total of 36,000 seats are expected to be filled in 104 participating colleges of WBJEE 2020. Based on the papers appeared in WBJEE followed by marks scores thereof, the Board will prepare two merit lists namely GMR and PMR. Each participating college of WBJEE will release separate cut off lists for different courses.

The calculation of scores is done through the following steps:

Calculation of Score

The scores are calculated by adding the total number of correct answers and subtracting the incorrect answers. The calculation of scores varies for each category defined under WBJEE Exam Pattern

Category 1

  • Only 1 option is correct.
  • Each question carries 1 mark.
  • ¼ marks will be deducted on marking incorrect response.

Category 2

  • Only 1 option is correct.
  • Each question carries 2 marks.
  • ½ marks will be deducted on marking incorrect response.

Category 3

  • 1 or more options may be correct.
  • Only all correct response will fetch 2 marks.
  • Combination of correct and incorrect response will be treated incorrect.
  • Partially correct answer: total marks = 2 X (no. of correct options/total no. of correct options)

Publication of GMR

Based on the above criteria, marks obtained in WBJEE 2020, the board publishes two merit lists- General Merit Rank List (GMR) and Pharmacy Merit Rank List (PMR). Only those students who have appeared in both the papers, will be considered for merit ranking. 

For admission in B.Tech and B.Arch courses, only GMR is taken into consideration. The rank list is prepared in descending order of total marks obtained in WBJEE 2020. Check WBJEE Rank List

The Board issues 3 types of Cut Off Lists. They are:

  1. Eligibility Cutoff: The minimum score required in the qualifying examination to appear for WBJEE. Students who have cleared/ appeared 10+2 with 45% in aggregate of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and other major subjects. They must obtained at least 30% in English separately.
  1. Qualifying Cutoff: The minimum marks required for passing the entrance examination. Students clearing WBJEE cut off will be included in GMR.
  1. Admission Cutoff: Based on WBJEE qualifying marks and merit as on GMR, admission rounds will be carried out in participating institutes. The institutes releases branch-wise and category-wise WBJEE Opening and Closing Ranks. The previous years’ WBJEE cut off (admission) is provided in the tables given below.
