Exam Pattern for WBJEE 2022: Mode of Answering

  • 2022 WBJEE Questions are to be answered on an OMR (Optical Machine Readable Response) sheet that has been particularly created.
  • The sheet is assessed using the Optical Mark Recognition technique.
  • Because each question contains four possible answers, the candidate must indicate their choice by completely darkening the corresponding circle with a blue/black ballpoint pen.
  • Any other type of marking, such as incomplete filling of the bubble, pencil filling, cross mark, tick mark, dot mark, circular mark, overwriting, scratching, erasing, white ink, marking outside the bubble, etc., may result in incorrect/partial/ambiguous response reading.
  • The responses that have been marked cannot be edited, changed, erased, or amended. As a result, it is recommended that the candidate be certain of the answer before marking and not leave any stray marks on which he or she does not like to attempt.
