This year, WBJEE will be conducted by WBJEEB (West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination Board) on April 23 for admission to undergraduate programmes in engineering, architecture, and pharmacy in West Bengal. A total of 36,000 seats will be available in 104 participating colleges of WBJEE 2017.
The test was held in 2 sessions, each of 2 hours, with a half an hour break between the 2 sessions. The distribution of questions was as below:

|Subject||No. of Questions||Good Attempts|
The section was a mixed bag of difficult and easy questions. The Physics paper comprised of topics like Laws of Motions, Rotational Motion, Kinematics, Hydrostatics, Hydrodynamics, Atom and Nuclei, Dual Nature of Matter, Heat & Thermodynamics, Semiconductors, Alternations Current, Optics, Electrostatics, Electromagnetic Induction, Magnetism, Current Electricity, etc. Overall the difficulty level of Physics section was moderate to high. An attempt of 25 plus questions with about more than 80% accuracy was considered good.
This section comprised questions of mole concept, equilibrium, thermodynamics, practical chemistry, s-block elements, d-block elements, transition elements, atomic structure, chemical bonding, hydrocarbons, aldehydes and ketones, halo alkanes, alcohol, amines, chemistry in everyday life etc. The overall difficulty level of the Chemistry section was moderate to high, and it had a mix of difficult and easy questions. The students who attempted 25 plus questions with more than 80% accuracy was in the safe zone.
This section comprised almost all major areas of class XI and XII mathematics. The section was relatively easy and had a number of easy questions than that of difficult questions. Overall the difficulty level of the section was easy to moderate. This section comprised conic sections, straight line, 3-D, integral calculus, differential equation, differentiation, application of derivatives, permutation and combinations, statistics, probability, relation and functions, quadratic equations, inequalities, area under curve, arithmetic and geometric progressions complex numbers, matrices, determinants, triangles, limits and derivatives. Many of the questions could be solved by ‘plug in the answer choice’ process. An attempt of 50 plus questions with about more than 80% accuracy was considered good.
The WBJEE 2016 Cut off List varies for different participating institutes and categories. The table below mentions the category wise opening and closing ranks of the top 10 engineering colleges under WBJEE:
