WBJEEB prepares General Merit Rank (GMR) and Pharmacy Merit Rank (PMR) on the basis of WBJEE score for admission in B.Tech and B.Pharm. Check the detailed WBJEE 202 ranking system and tie-breaking policy.

WBJEE Ranking System – GMR, PMR, Tie-Breaking Policy

WBJEE 2022 Ranking System: Along with the WBJEE 2022 result, West Bengal Joint Entrance Exam Board (WBJEEB) allocates a rank to candidates based on their performance in the entrance exam. For the counseling process, the board declares two rank lists, i.e., General Merit Rank (GMR) and Pharmacy Merit Rank (PMR). While candidates featuring in GMR are eligible to take admission in BTech and BPharm, PMR candidates can only take admission in B.Pharm. As more than one lakh candidates appear for WBJEE every year, there are chances where two or more candidates secure the same marks. In such cases, a tie-breaking policy comes into effect to resolve the tie. All the details with regard to WBJEE 2022 ranking system and tie-breaking policy can be checked on this page.

WBJEE Ranking System 2022

The ranking system of WBJEE 2022 can be divided into two categories – General Merit Rank (GMR) and Pharmacy Merit Rank (PMR). A clear distinction in both of these ranking systems has been differentiated below. Candidates are requested to check the ranking system procedures for better clarity.

What is WBJEE 2022 GMR?

  • GMR stands for General Merit Rank (GMR) in WBJEE 2022.
  • The GMR rank is allocated on the basis of marks scored by candidates in Paper 1 & 2 (Mathematics, Physics & Chemistry).
  • The exam is conducted for 200 marks, and the ranking process starts in descending order.
  • For example, the highest marks of a candidate in both Paper 1 & 2 is 199, he/ she will be allocated Rank 1. On the other hand, if the lowest mark is 10 in Paper 1 & 2, the candidate will be allocated the last rank. Usually, the last rank goes up to 80,000 every year.

WBJEE 2022 GMR Tie-Breaking Policy

There are certain cases where one or two candidates secure the same marks in the entrance exam. For example, if Candidate A scores 199 in WBJEE and Candidate B also scores 199, the rank will be allocated as per the following tie-breaking rules.

Rule 1

A Candidate with fewer negative marks in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry will be given top preference in the rank list.

Rule 2

If the tie does not break with the above rule, the candidate with more positive marks in Mathematics and Physics shall be given top preference in the rank list.

Rule 3

If the tie does not resolve with the above rules, candidates with more positive marks in Mathematics & Chemistry shall be given top preference in the rank list.

Rule 5

If the tie still persists after applying the above rules, candidates with less negative marks in Mathematics and Physics shall be given top preference in the rank list.

Rule 4

If the tie does not break after applying the above rules, the candidate with more positive marks for 2 mark questions in Physics shall be given top preference in the rank list.

Rule 5

If the tie does not resolve after applying the above rules, the candidate with more positive marks for 2 mark questions in Chemistry shall be given top preference in the rank list.

Rule 6

If the tie still persists after applying the above rules, the candidate with less negative marks for 2 marks in Mathematics shall be given preference in the rank list.

Rule 7

If the tie still exists after applying the above rules, the candidate with less negative marks in Physics 2 mark questions shall be given preference in the rank list.

Rule 8
