Calculation of scores: 

The calculation of scores varies for each category as given in WBJEE 2020 Marking Scheme. WBJEE covers Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics with three categories of questions from each subject.

Publication of Merit Lists:

  • After calculating the scores, the GMR (short for General Merit Rank)and PMR (short for Pharmacy Merit Rank)is prepared on the basis of which the admission cut-off is determined.

  • The list of GMR is prepared based on the total score obtained in paper 1 and paper 2 while the list of PMR is prepared based on the total score obtained in paper 2.

  • GMR is applicable for admission to all Engineering / Technology / Architecture Courses and to the Pharmacy Course in Jadavpur University while PMR is applicable for admission to all Pharmacy Courses except in Jadavpur University.

  • The ranking is done in the descending order of total marks scored in all the subjects and the tie-breaking rules are applied if scores of two or more candidates are the same.

  • WBJEE counselling and admission is done on the basis of GMR and PMR only.
