The West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination (WBJEE) which is scheduled for April 15th, 2012 ie.. on Sunday, conducted in order to provide admission into undergraduate courses in Engineering/Technology/Architecture/Medical/Dental and Pharmacy in universities/colleges in West Bengal. It was started in the year 1962 with an objective to conduct a common entrance exam for students to take admission into colleges in West Bengal state.
With only 3 days left for the final day, students must have started their revision. Lets have a look at the Exam Paper Pattern : The question paper is divided into 2 sections. The first section consists of multiple choice type questions (80% marks) and second section is of short answer type questions (20%). Each question is provided with 4 options including 1 correct answer. Incorrect answer fetches a deduction of 33.33% marks.
Here are some changes in WBJEE 2012 Entrance Test Pattern.
All the questions in each paper will be of MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) type and must be answered in the OMR sheet provided to them. No short descriptive type questions will be there like last year. For Mathematics and Biological Sciences papers- total number of questions will be 80 in each paper, out of which questions bearing sl.no 1 to 60 will carry 1 mark each and questions from sl.no 61 to 80 will carry 2 marks each.
