ANY examination centre for wbjee in up?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 11th Nov, 2019

Dear Amit, WBJEE is a State Level Entrance examination and hence has only exam centers in West Bengal. But yes, this year, WBJEE will also be conducted in Assam and Trioura. Silchar for Assam and Agartala for Tripura have been allotted exam centers. Apart from this there is no other State which has WBJEE exam centres. So if you want to appear for WBJEE, you may have to travel to West Bengal, Tripura or Silchar.
