Ranking methodology & Rules of Tie Breaking

In WBJEEM-2016, there will be three separate merit lists: (i) Engineering, (ii) Medical and (iii) Pharmacy (not applicable to Jadavpur University).

The merit list for successful candidates in the Engineering category will be prepared by listing them in the descending order of the total marks scored by them. However, there may be ties and such ties will be broken by sequentially applying the following set of rules:

  1. Less negative marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry taken together
  2. More positive marks in Mathematics and Physics taken together
  3. More positive marks in Mathematics and Chemistry taken together
  4. Less negative marks in Mathematics and Physics taken together
  5. Less negative marks in Mathematics and Chemistry taken together
  6. More positive marks in Mathematics for only the 2 marks questions
  7. More positive marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  8. More positive marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  9. Less negative marks in Mathematics for only the 2 marks questions
  10. Less negative marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  11. Less negative marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions

The merit list for successful candidates in the Medical category will be prepared by listing them in the descending order of the total marks scored by them. However, there may be ties and such ties will be broken by sequentially applying the following set of rules:

  1. Less negative marks in Biology, Physics and Chemistry taken together
  2. More positive marks in Biology and Physics taken together
  3. More positive marks in Biology and Chemistry taken together
  4. Less negative marks in Biology and Physics taken together
  5. Less negative marks in Biology and Chemistry taken together
  6. More positive marks in Biology for only the 2 marks questions
  7. More positive marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  8. More positive marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  9. Less negative marks in Biology for only the 2 marks questions
  10. Less negative marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  11. Less negative marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions

For Pharmacy course at Jadavpur University, the merit list of Engineering will be considered. For Pharmacy (other than Jadavpur University), a separate merit list will be prepared. The list will be prepared as per the descending order of the total marks scored by them in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or Biological Sciences, whichever is greater (to be treated as 3rd subject). However, there may be ties and such ties will be broken by sequentially applying the following set of rules:

  1. Less negative marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology), Physics and Chemistry taken together
  2. More positive marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology) and Physics taken together
  3. More positive marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology) and Chemistry taken together
  4. Less negative marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology) and Physics taken together
  5. Less negative marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology) and Chemistry taken together
  6. More positive marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology) for only the 2 marks questions
  7. More positive marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  8. More positive marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions
  9. Less negative marks in 3rd subject (Mathematics/Biology) for only the 2 marks questions
  10. Less negative marks in Physics for only the 2 marks questions
  11. Less negative marks in Chemistry for only the 2 marks questions

In generation of the Engineering, Medical and Pharmacy merit lists, if after applying the 11 rules stated above there are still ties, same will be broken by the date of birth (DOB) of the concerned candidates; the older candidate will be given preference over the younger one.
