WBJEE Counselling Procedure

WBJEE results 2014 will be published by June 10, 2014 and only then, counselling date of WBJEE 2014 will be announced. Counselling procedure for all the engineering and medical courses will take place online.

Check your WBJEE Result here!

During e-counselling, a list of participating universities or institutions will be published on the website along with number of seats they have in different branches.

Students will have to indicate their preference for courses and institutes they are interested in.

Seats will be allotted on the basis of merit. Seat allotment depends on number of seats available in a course, number of candidates applying for it, and whether candidates meet all the eligibility criteria.

Do remember:

  • Architecture students will have to produce the documentary evidence to prove that they have qualified the NATA (National Aptitude Test in Architecture) at the time of counselling. NATA is conducted by the Council of Architecture, New Delhi.
  • Medical students need to produce a medical fitness certificate from a registered medical practitioner to prove that they are physically and mentally fit to pursue the course.
  • During counselling of WBJEE 2014, the Board will publish the number of seats available for admission through WBJEEM 2014 and the number of seats under Management quota.\
  • Students of reserved categories, native of the State, will have to produce related certificates, issued before the date of submission of online application form, to claim the benefits.
  • Under PwD category, only candidates with 50% to 70% loco-motor disability of lower limbs are admitted. If seats reserved for such candidates are still vacant then those with 40% to 50% disability are also considered. However, all the certificates of PwD candidates will be verified by the Medical Board at the time of counselling.
  • For Defence Quota seats, e-counselling is not done. A separate merit list is published for such candidates and they undergo offline counselling and seat allotment process.
