Mode of Answering

  • Questions are to be answered on specially designed optical machine readable response ( OMR ) sheet, which will be evaluated by the method of Optical Mark Recognition. Thus it is very important to follow the correct method of marking.
  • There will be four alternative answers for each question. Candidate will indicate response to the questions by darkening the appropriate
    circle completely with blue / black ball point pen.
  • Any other kind of marking e.g. filling the bubble incompletely, filling with pencil, cross mark, tick mark, dot mark, circular mark, over writing, scratching, erasing, white ink, marking outside the bubble etc. may lead to wrong / partial / ambiguous reading of the response. WBJEEB will be, in no way, responsible for such eventuality.
  • Response marking cannot be edited / changed / erased / modified. Hence it is advised that the candidate should be sure about the answer before marking and should not put any stray mark on which he / she does not want to attempt.
