WBJEEB 2017 Exam Syllabus

The syllabi for ensuing WBJEEM examinations have been revised recently. The revised syllabus is available Click here

The syllabi revision has been performed based on the following principles:

  • Students from no particular school/Board must get preferential treatment.
  • More descriptive topics have been either omitted or given less importance than the analytical ones.
  • Stress has been laid more on depth of the syllabi rather than the extent of coverage
