WBJEE Exam Marking Scheme

The number of questions and marks awarded is as follows:

Subject Category-1

Each question carries 1 mark (-ve marks = -¼)

Category-2

Each question carries 2 marks (-ve marks = -½)

Category-3

Each question carries 2 marks (No -ve marks)

Total Number of Questions Total Marks
No. of Questions No. of Questions No. of Questions
Mathematics 50 15 10 75 100
Physics 30 5 5 40 50
Chemistry 30 5 5 40 50

The total marks for the WBJEE exam is 200. Each correct answer carries 1 or 2 marks (depending on the category). If the question is not attempted, then no marks will be awarded. In the case of category 1 and 2 questions, selecting more than 1 option will be awarded negative marks.

Every wrong answer will yield

  • Category 1: -¼ (25% negative)
  • Category 2: -1/2 (25% negative)
  • Category 3: A combination of a correct and wrong answer will fetch 2 marks while a partially correct response will fetch: 2 x (no. of correct options marked ÷ total number of correct options)

Mode of Answering – Important Instructions

Candidates will be required to mark their answers on OMR sheets, which will then be evaluated by Optical Mark Recognition Method. Hence, they are required to be very attentive while marking the answers.

  • Each question will have four alternatives, and candidates are required to darken the appropriate circle entirely with either a blue or black ballpoint pen.
  • Any other kind of marking, such as a tick, a dot, a circle, white ink or scratching, may lead to an erroneous or ambiguous reading of the response.
  • In the case of such an eventuality, WBJEEB will not be held accountable.
  • Once the candidate marks a response in the OMR, it cannot be changed or erased. Hence, they must be sure of the answer before marking it. Moreover, do not put any stray marks on the options.
