To be precise, four in Zoology and one in Botany, two in Chemistry and one in Physics. Where these answer keys help bring in more transparency, they have led to utter confusion this time. The Board has decided to announce the results on August 27,2016 now.CHECK WBJEE Answer Key

These applications will be further sent to the WBJEE Board Committee, that will examine the objections and come to a decision.

In another statement by the JU former dean of Engineering, Mr. Manoj Mitra says, "It doesn't speak well of a board when such complaints arise. I must say that it is very difficult to avoid ambiguity in setting MCQ questions. Examiners must take extreme caution to ensure that questions are clear and so the answers”. He adds that setting an ambiguous question does more harm than giving an incorrect model answer. "I have not gone through the question paper. But I feel that the WBJEE authorities need to give the benefit of doubt to students for each of such ambiguous questions. Model answers, if found incorrect, can be corrected. Even it shows the examiners in poor light”. He further feels that the time-taken to bring out error-free model answer keys will not cause any further delay in declaration of results.
