Only three girls have found a place in the top-20 list in both the medical and engineering streams of JEE this year. The districts took most of the honours but Kolkata has the highest eligibility percentage - 10.02% in medical and 56.71% in engineering. Anusha Chaudhuri from Salt Lake School secured the 13th rank in engineering, while Archi Ghanti from DAV Model School Durgapur and Paromita Roy from Arambag Girls' High School stood 17th and 19th in medical. Government schools have kept up their commendable performance in JEE.
This year, most of rankers in both streams are state board students, barring a few that were clinched by students of other boards (St. James School, Heritage School, South Point, DAV School Bishnupur and Kota in Rajasthan). In terms of eligibility in engineering, West Midnapore came second with 53.42% while Murshidabad followed Kolkata in medical with 8.72% students eligible for counselling. What's unique is that this year all engineering examinees will secure a rank and can express their choice in the online counselling. "It remains to be seen if students with very poor ranks get a seat or not. If seats remain vacant, they make get a shot at studying engineering. But, we have decided to give ranks to all students who have qualified in the exam since it is their right to know their position in order to improve," said WBJEE board chairman Bhaskar Gupta. This year 128,385 students took the JEE - 78,260 for engineering, 13,772 for medical and 36,353 for both. A series of measures were taken to "enhance transparency, precision and anonymity", said an official. Incomplete and ineligible forms were not cancelled in total. Candidates were informed to make the corrections. Scanned copies of the OMR sheets will be made available to the candidates through the JEE website. Ranks were awarded to all medical stream JEE candidates as well.
