Subject Name Marks Time Duration

Paper-II (English) 50 1 hour
Paper-III (Bengali/Hindi/Nepali/Urdu) 50 1 hour

The Final Combined Competitive Examination will be held on the same day as the previous three examinations. The Final Combined Competitive Examination’s Paper I (General Studies & Arithmetic) will be held in three languages (English, Bengali and Nepali).

D. Personality Test: (Total Marks: 30): Candidates who pass the Final Combined Competitive Examination will be invited to take the Personality Test. WBPRB administers a personality assessment test, and candidates must score 8 out of 30 to pass. If they do not, they will be disqualified. Their paperwork will also be verified at this time. The ability of the candidate to speak Bengali fluently will be assessed in this Personality Test.


  • The personality test has a minimum passing score of 8 out of 30.
  • Candidates who do not pass the personality exam with a minimal score will be disqualified (irrespective of the marks obtained in the Final Combined Competitive Examination).
  • The final merit list will be compiled using the total marks earned by selected applicants in the three papers of the Final Combined Competitive Examination as well as the results of the Personality Test. Candidates who do not achieve the required passing score on the personality test will be rejected.
  • If two or more applicants receive the same total (aggregate) marks in the Final Combined Competitive Examination, their seniority in the final merit/selection list will be determined by their marks in the Final Combined Competitive Examination. The candidate with the highest score in the Final Combined Competitive Examination will be placed first on the Merit List. If the candidates’ grades in Paper-I (General Studies & Arithmetic) of the Final Combined Competitive Examination are the same, seniority will be determined by the candidates’ marks in Paper-I (General Studies & Arithmetic) of the Final Combined Competitive Examination. In the Merit List, the candidate with the highest score in Paper I (General Studies & Arithmetic) in the Final Combined Competitive Examination would be given priority. If the marks obtained in Paper I (General Studies and Arithmetic) of the Final Combined Competitive Examination are also equal, seniority will be established by age. In the Merit List, the applicant who is older will be ranked higher than the others. The Board will decide on the concept of determining seniority if the dates of birth are the same.
  • Shortlisted candidates from Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts’ Hill Sub-Divisions must present their domicile certificate for document verification during the Personality Test.

Preparation Tips

A specific study plan and preparation technique is required to pass the WB Police SI Prelims. It is important to understand your strengths and weaknesses before preparing for the exam.

Logical & Analytical Reasoning

This section is very scoring. Candidates must concentrate on the questions designed to evaluate their mental abilities. Candidates must practice puzzles, coding-decoding, and mirror problems. Candidates should read the questions carefully to avoid confusions.


This section requires a lot of practice on a regular basis. Candidates should study the formulas extensively. Candidates should practise with a time constraint and pay attention to the time and speed with which they answer the questions. Candidates should practise these parts extensively. It covers topics such as Square Root, Trigonometry, Polygons as well as the relationship between them, Time and Distance, Ratio and Proportion, and more. Use the MCQ question’s value of options to your advantage.

Exam Taking Strategy

Below we have provided some of the exam taking strategy for WB Police SI exams:

  • When we take example of professional sportsmen, singers, and actors, it’s clear why they achieve success in their respective industries solely via constant practice. Malcolm Gladwell, a psychologist, once advocated the 10,000-hour rule, which states that a person becomes an expert in any profession after 10,000 hours of effort.
  • Attempting mock test will give you a fair idea about the real exams. The questions in the mock test are in the same format as the real exam, and you must answer them in the same amount of time. A mock test will give you a good idea of what to expect in the real exam.
  • A mock test will help you identify areas of difficulty while also assuring you that you understand all the concepts thoroughly.
  • It’s critical to believe in yourself in order to acquire good grades in the exam and gain a better understanding of various topics. This will not only help you in acing your exam but will also benefit you in the long run. Always remember to plan ahead of time and work hard to reach your goals.

Detailed Study plan

A proper and managed plan surely helps overcome exam fear. Some of the important factors that are required are given below:

  1. Time Management: Time management is important as it gives you a fair idea about your preparations. This factor can be improved by practising a lot of problems within a limited time.
  2. Accuracy: Accuracy is one of the crucial factors for this exam because there is always a penalty for wrong attempts. So, do not try to mark random guesses.
  3. Sectional Test: Sectional tests are very important as they help in practising a complete section covering all the questions based on it. They aim at strengthening and clearing your concepts regarding a single subject. So, try to answer one sectional test for each section daily.
  4. Mock Test: Mock tests allow students to track our progress and find your weaknesses and strengths regarding each topic. By giving mock tests, you can become aware of many different types of questions before the exam. Also, devote some time to yoga and meditation, which help to improve concentration and reduce stress and anxiety.

The candidate’s upper age limit might be relaxed by 5 years (for SC and ST tribes) and 3 years (for other tribes) (for OBC candidates of only West Bengal). The upper age limit for departmental candidates (of the Kolkata Police) is decreased to 35 years (if having requisite qualification). The upper age limit for departmental candidates would be lowered by 5 years for SC/ST applicants and 3 years for OBC applicants.
