The state-level entrance test for gaining admission in undergraduate (UG) courses in Engineering and Technology, Pharmacy and Architecture in government colleges, universities, and self-financed institutions in West Bengal was held on 17 July.
The exam was held offline amidst the COVID-19 pandemic with stringent health and safety precautions. The entrance exam was held for two subjects - Paper 1 (Mathematics) and Paper 2 (Physics and Chemistry). Each paper carried a weightage of 100 marks.
On the basis of a candidate's marks, two merit lists will be created – a general merit rank (GMR) and a pharmacy merit rank (PMR). The GMR will take into consideration the scores of both Paper 1 and Paper 2, while the PMR will take cognizance of the scores of Paper 2 only. For Jadavpur University, all admissions will take place on the basis of the GMR scores.
The WBJEE Board had released a provisional answer key on 21 July, allowing students the option to challenge it. The final answer key was released on 5 August.
