WBJEE 2019 – Results

The results of WBJEE 2019 will be announced by July 2, 2019. Candidates who will score as per the cut off marks will be termed as qualified for the engineering examination. There will be two rank lists for WBJEE 2019 will be as mentioned below:

  • General Merit Rank List (GMR): For aggregate marks scored in both papers. The students who have appeared in both papers of WBJEE and have qualified the exam as per the cut off marks will be eligible for admissions to engineering & technology/architecture courses and also for pharmacy courses offered at Jadavpur University. Moreover, the GMR list will also mention reserved category a candidate belongs to against his/her rank.
  • Pharmacy Merit Rank List (PMR): The rank list of WBJEE 2019 will be based only on the marks of paper 2 candidates. The candidates who appeared for paper 2 of WBJEE 2019 and qualified for the exam as per the minimum cut off marks will be ranked in descending order of their ranks. The candidates ranking in the list will be eligible for admission in pharmacy courses of Universities and Pharmacy Institutes except at Jadavpur University.

Students should also know some tie-breaking rules in WBJEE rank list which are given below:

In case, one or more candidates score same marks in WBJEE 2019 papers, the following methods will be implemented to resolve the ranking —

1. For General Merit Rank List (GMR):

The following methods will be used candidates who appeared for paper 1 and paper 2

  • Less negative marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry took together
  • More positive marks in Mathematics and Physics took together
  • More positive marks in Mathematics and Chemistry took together
  • Less negative marks in Mathematics and Physics took together
  • Less negative marks in Mathematics and Chemistry took together
  • More positive marks in Mathematics for only the 2 marks questions
  • More positive marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  • More positive marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  • Less negative marks in Mathematics for only the 2 marks questions
  • Less negative marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions

2. Pharmacy Merit Rank List (PMR):  

For candidates who only appeared for paper 2 of WBJEE, the tie-in ranks will be resolved by the methods given below:

  • Less negative marks in Physics & Chemistry
  • More positive marks in Chemistry
  • Less negative marks in Chemistry
  • More positive marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  • Less negative marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  • More positive marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  • Less negative marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions

Note: In case, if the tie still exists then the date of birth will be taken into consideration to break the tie in ranks and candidates older in age will be given preference.
