Exceptions to 3 types of Examinees

  • Only West Bengal domiciled candidates are eligible for medical/ dental courses. Only such candidate can register as ‘E’ type candidate. He/she has to appear for Mathematics and Physics & Chemistry in order to get rank in Engineering/ Technology. Also these candidates can sit for Physics + Chemistry in order to get admission to Pharmacy colleges other than in Jadavpur University.
  • Candidate has to appear in Mathematics and Physics & Chemistry as “E” or “C” for taking admission in Pharmacy Course.
  • Candidates appearing only in Physics + Chemistry under any type of examinee E/ M/ C are eligible only for pharmacy course other than in Jadavpur University.

If a candidate bubbles more than 1 option, then that answer will be considered incorrect and will result in deduction of ¼ marks.

Question Category 2: Each question carries 4 options and only 1 option will be correct. The correct marked option will fetch you 2 marks and incorrect answer will deduct ½ marks. For any combination of more than single option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and yields to -½ (negative ½) marks.

For any combination of answers having 1 or more incorrect options, will be treated as incorrect and it is worth of zero mark. In case the answer is partially correct i.e. when all correct options are not marked but also no incorrect option is marked, marks awarded will be equal to 2 x (number of correct options marked) / (total no of actually correct options).
