Students taking the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations (WBJEE) are set to get a breather. The examinees, who always wanted to know the mistakes they have made on answer papers, will soon get a chance to take a look at those. From this year onwards, we have decided to show answer scripts to the entire examinees. No fee will be charged by the board for showing answer scripts. We may also upload model answers for each question on the website, said chairman of WBJEE Bhaskar Gupta.
According to him, they have also introduced new rules in case of a tie in the engineering or technology rank. It will be broken by sequentially applying a set of rules. The sequence under the rules will be applied step by step till the tie is broken. In fourteen steps, the maximum marks and minimum of negative marks scored in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry together and individually will be taken into consideration. If the tie still persists, then the older candidate will be given preference. The expert committee on higher education has suggested making some radical changes in the JEE. The committee report said the seat arrangements should be made randomly and not according to the number of forms. Also, the question pattern should be changed. Care must be taken so that they are not picked up from the popular guide books. It also recommended uploading the student’s answers along with model answers on the website. We have decided to implement all the suggestions from this year’s examination, Gupta said. The WBJEE board has also decided to cut down on the number of questions from 90 to 80 from the 2012 examinations. Not only will there be fewer questions to attempt, students will be judged only on multiple choice-questions (MCQs).Earlier, students had to attempt 90 questions, of which 80 were of one mark each and 10 questions were short-answer-type and carried two marks each. From this year onwards, students will have to tick the right answer from multiple options. There will be 60 questions of one mark each and 20 questions carrying 2 marks each.
