Category Scoring Methodology
(1-mark questions)
Only one out of four options is correct.
Correct response will fetch 1 (one) mark.
Wrong response will lead to -1/4 (25% negative) marks.
If a candidate marks more than one option, the said answers will be treated as incorrect and the question will yield -14 (negative 25%) marks.
No mark will be given if a candidate did not attempt a question.
(2-mark questions)
Only one out of four options is correct.
Correct response will fetch the candidate 2 (two) marks.

If a candidate marks all correct responses, then only the candidate will get 2 (two) marks.
If a candidate marks a combination of both correct and incorrect responses, then the whole answer for that question will be treated as incorrect and the candidate will get 0 (zero) mark.
If a candidate answers partially and all the partial answers are correct, then the marks awarded will be calculated as =2 x (number of correct options marked divided by the total number of correct options).

Preparation Tips

You can implement the following study tips into your preparation methods to score good marks in the WBJEE 2022:

Concentrate on your strong points:
First, divide the WBJEE curriculum into two sections: easy and difficult. Pay close attention to the simple subjects. Aim for the highest possible grade in each of them. This will raise your average and balance out the marks you lose in difficult subjects.

If you are afraid of any subject, study it first:
When it comes to subjects that you are afraid of, work smart. Rather than starting from the beginning, refer to WBJEE previous years' question papers to identify the most important chapters. Concentrate on the lessons presented here and go over them thoroughly.

Maintain a schedule:
After you have broken down the syllabus into sections, make a timetable to allot specific time to each subject. Try to stick to the timeline and complete the entire WBJEE syllabus under it. Cue in regular revisions too.

Exam Taking Strategy

Candidates can prepare for the WBJEE engineering exam by:

  1.  A regular study using the prescribed books. (List of recommended books given in "Study Plan to Maximise Score" section)
  2.  Take up regular mock tests provided on the WBJEE website.
  3.  Embibe tests: Embibe has designed various tests suitable for exams. Candidates can go through those and find the gap they have during the preparation phase. Refer to the Embibe website.
  4.  Embibe mock tests: These tests are different from the test said above. These mock tests are tailor-made to handle WBJEE. Refer to the Embibe website.


Detailed Study plan

Candidates can prepare for the upcoming WBJEE 2022 exams by adhering to the study plan given below:

  • Go through the prescribed syllabus of each subject of WBJEE thoroughly, and note down the topics needed to study for the exam.
  • Make a study timetable and include some time for hobbies and interests. Switch between the WBJEE subjects while studying to avoid getting bored.
  • Solve previous year WBJEE question papers to analyse your preparation level and exam readiness. Identify the weak areas and work on improving them.
  • Take short breaks of 5-10 minutes after studying 30-60 minutes to keep your mind fresh and active, as the WBJEE syllabus is extensive, and you should avoid burnout.
  • Stay calm and have a proper diet to keep the mind and body healthy to tackle the WBJEE exam.

Previous Year Analysis

Previous Year Analysis

Previous Year Papers

Going through previous years papers' brings in the following benefits to the candidates:

  • Candidates understand the nature and type of questions.
  • Get to know a tentative distribution of questions from different sections.
  • Understand the difficulty level of the questions and prioritise other questions for answering.
  • Candidates get a sense of how to answer all questions in the allotted time.

Going through the previous years papers and solving them forms an important part of the preparation strategy. For the previous years engineering papers, candidates must look for WBJEE 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014. The WBJEE Engineering Exam is conducted for admission into engineering courses of the state of West Bengal. Hence, candidates can refer to and practice WBJEE 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 etc. question papers for better preparation.

Exam Counselling

Exam counselling

Student Counselling

Choosing a career after Classes 11-12 is an important step in every student’s life. Students should choose this extremely carefully after analysing their strengths and weaknesses. Generally, students get concerned about it and grow vulnerable to making mistakes. It creates mental and physical stress while studying for Class 11-12 board exams and simultaneously preparing for different competitive exams. It is not easy to handle this pressure and stress.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

Parents have to play a very critical role in helping their kids at this important time. They should always create a healthy and comfortable environment for the kid and help them manage their stress.

Parents of students aspiring for WBJEE play a crucial role in the preparation of their kids. Advisably, they can do the following things to motivate their children in a healthy manner:

  • Parents have to understand the importance and intensity of the exam. Candidates face the challenge of balancing study and preparation for their board-level exams and different entrance exams for which they are appearing. Hence, parents should understand their kids' capacity to absorb the stress and constantly monitor their kids' stress levels. 
  • Parents should ensure good food and environment for studying with necessary study materials.
  • Parents should ensure that their kid's preparation is at the optimum level and their academic efficiency is slowly reaching its peak.
