  • Paper-I – Mathematics
  • Paper-II - Physics & Chemistry (combined)

Candidates appearing in both Paper-I and Paper-II and who are awarded ranks will be eligible for admission in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture/ Pharmacy Courses in all institutes.

Candidates appearing in Paper-II only and who are awarded ranks will be eligible for admission only in Pharmacy Courses (except in Jadavpur University).

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).

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:

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).
