In the WBJEE 2018 Exam Pattern, Paper-I will be conducted in the morning (11:00 am to 01:00 pm) & Paper-II will be held in the evening (02:00 pm to 04:00 pm).
WBJEE 2018 Pattern Highlights:
Offline(Pen & Paper)
2 hours for each paper
Physics, Chemistry & Maths
Pattern of WBJEE 2018:
In each subject, all questions will be of MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) type, each of which will have four options against the question.
There will be 3 categories of questions in each of the subjects. The number of questions, as well as maximum marks for each, are mentioned in the below table:
Category - I
Category - II
Category - III
WBJEE Marking Scheme:
In WBJEE 2018 exam pattern, each category in all subjects in both papers has different marking scheme. The category wise marking scheme for each subject of paper I and paper II is given in the table below:
Marking system for Category I:
Only one option is correct.
For each correct option, 1 mark will be provided.
Every wrong/multiple options will result in the eduction of 0.25 marks.
Marking system for Category II:
Only one option is correct.
For every correct option, 2 marks will be given.
Every wrong/multiple options will result in the deduction of 0.50 marks.
Marking system for Category III:
One or more correct options.
For every correct option, 2 marks will be awarded.
Any combination of the correct and wrong option will be treated as options and no marks will be given.
For the partially correct response, given marks will be = 2 x (no. of correct options marked)/(total no. of correct options).
WBJEE 2018 has been conducted on April 22, 2018 in a pen-paper based format, in different cities across West Bengal.
For getting into top govt engineering colleges, a rank under 5000 is required. If anyone attempts 120 plus questions at an accuracy of 85%, he/she has a decent chance of getting 100 marks, which can fetch a rank under 5000 and ensure a seat in the top govt engineering colleges with CS or ECE branch.
The paper was on predictable lines and anyone who would have done decent preparation can attempt 120 plus.
The questions were asked from almost all the important topics of 12th class and 25 to 30% questions were also asked from the 11th class syllabus.

WBJEE 2016 Exam Analysis
Nearly 1.3 lakh candidates appeared in the WBJEE examination for admission into Government and privately run engineering colleges within the state of West Bengal. WBJEE examination was held on 17th May in a Pen Paper mode (Offline) examination across all major cities in West Bengal.
The test was held in two sessions - the first session started at 12.45 PM and lasted up to 2.45 PM. The second session was also of two hours and started after a break of half an hour. The result is expected to be declared in mid-June 2016.
Scores of WBJEE are important in seeking admission to the 4-year engineering degree courses of Government and private institutions. Students from outside West Bengal also appear for admission in the private run colleges.
Biology paper of WBJEE was cancelled due to the recent Supreme Court ruling towards NEET. However, those seeking admission in B.Pharma courses wrote Physics and Chemistry paper.
The test was in Pen-Paper mode (Offline) and paper quality was quite on the expected lines. The distribution of the questions is as below:
No of Questions
The difficulty level of the exam varied from subject to subject. While Maths was relatively easy, Physics & Chemistry had a mix of moderate and difficult questions. Some questions in all sections had doubtful options.
A subject-wise break-up of the paper on the basis of difficulty level is as given below:
No of Questions
Q Category 1
Q Category 2
Q Category 3
Total No of Questions
Physics + Chemistry
30x1 mark + 30x1 mark

The section was a mixed bag of difficult and easy questions. Overall the difficulty level of the section was moderate to high. This section comprised kinematics, laws of motion, rotational motion, hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, semiconductors, atom and nuckei, dual nature of matter, heat and thermodynamics, alternating current, optics, electrostatics, electromagnetics induction, current electricity, magnetism etc. An attempt of 25 plus questions with about more than 80% accuracy will be considered good.
The section was a mixed bag of difficult and easy questions. Overall the difficulty level of the section was moderate to high. This section comprised mole concept, equilibrium, thermodynamics, practical chemistry, s-block elements, d-block elements, transition elements, atomic structure, chemical bonding, hydrocarbons, aldehydes and ketones, halo alkanes, alcohol, amines, chemistry in everyday life etc. An attempt of 25 plus questions with about more than 80% accuracy will be considered good.
The section was relatively easy and had a number of easy questions than that of difficult questions. Overall the difficulty level of the section was easy to moderate. This section comprised almost all major areas of class XI and XII mathematics. This section comprised conic sections, straight line, 3-D, integral calculus, differential equation, differentiation, application of derivatives, permutation and combinations, statistics, probability, relation and functions, quadratic equations, inequalities, area under curve, arithmetic and geometric progressions complex numbers, matrices, determinants, triangles, limits and derivatives. A candidate well-versed in the XI and XII mathematics textbooks definitely had a field day. Many of the questions could be solved by ‘plug in the answer choice’ process. An attempt of 50 plus questions with about more than 80% accuracy will be considered good.
WBJEE 2016 for Engineering does not have any cut-off but it is estimated that a safe score should be between 90 and 100. One should get a rank high above to get into a Government college or in a good private run college with this range of score.

WBJEE is one of the most competitive and prominent entrance exams. It is taken by a large number of candidates every year. If you are planning to take WBJEE, then you must start your preparation well in advance to face such strong competition. To prepare for WBJEE 2018, it is important for you to clear your concepts and have a through understanding of each topic/chapter in the WBJEE 2018 syllabus.
WBJEE is scheduled to be conducted on April 22, 2018 in offline mode, for admission to undergraduate programmes in Pharmacy & Architecture, Engineering & Technology in Universities, Self Financed Institutes and Government Colleges of West Bengal.
Here are a few tips and tricks, which can make your WBJEE preparation easier.
Plan Your Exam-taking Strategy:
When you sit down to prepare for WBJEE 2018, you must also focus on making an exam-taking strategy before actually appearing for the entrance exam. Your exam-taking strategy for WBJEE 2018 must include practicing questions on a regular basis so that you can excel in the entrance exam.
The essential steps while you are preparing for WBJEE is to practice consistently. Once you are in the habit of practicing consistently, you will get used to all types of questions that are asked in the exam, which will boost your confidence.
Getting some guidance for exam preparation is important as it is not possible for you to know everything in your syllabus. While preparing, there are chances that you run into a concept/ topic, which you may not understand at all. In that case, it is best for you to seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher and clear your doubts at regular intervals.
First Attempt What You Know:
Before you start attempting the question paper, you should first take a look at the question paper and see which questions can be solved easily and in less time. The best approach when you're attempting an entrance exam is that you should first attempt what you know or can easily solve and keep difficult questions for last.
Stay Physically and Mentally Balanced:
Many students neglect their physical health while preparing for entrance exam, which can lead to bad performance in the entrance exam. Therefore, you should exercise daily and sleep well to keep your mind and body ready for the exam day.
Best Books for WBJEE 2018 Preparation
The first step to WBJEE preparation is getting the right study material, which may include books, sample papers, previous years' question papers, etc. You may refer to the following books for your WBJEE preparation.
