Questions related to WBJEE
If I pay the seat acceptance fee for a college in wbjee 3rd counselling and then get a better college through josaa counselling and chose not to get admitted in the wbjee college will the seat acceptance fee be refunded?
Sad to disappoint you but you will not get any refund. Since you have accepted the seat in third counseling round there is a provision that no refund of college acceptance fee will be made by WBJEE in that case. Now its upto you whether to take admission through the college allotted via wbjee or by josaa.
I hope this helps.
My GMR rank of WBJEE 2020 is 16700 and i have alloted a seat in coochbehar gov. engineering college Electrical branch through GMR rank. Through any source HOSTEL avilable in 1st year or can i take admission in any other gov. gollage through Decentralised councelling (spot round)
You got 16700 rank in wbjee 2020. Yo u got a seat in coachbehar government engineering college in electrical department.
Look, your rank in wbjee is medium good. Below 10k rank is good for getting seats for wbjee. So, beside CGEC you may get private ones.
In Coachbehar government engg college has hostel facility. As it is a government college, hostel changes & fees are also very less. So, you may go for it.
All the best !!

hello sir/ madam, if one secures a rank of 650 in general category in WBJEE, then will he or she be able to get chance in electrical stream?
Well, You haven't told if you are HS(home state) or AI(all india), But in both scenario chances of Electrical stream are very less in specifically Jadavpur University, But there are 50-80 options for you in other colleges through WBJEE.
You can refer this year's cut-off from ( https://engineering.careers360.com/articles/wbjee-cutoff )
I hope this helps, and You have a very good score and you should really consider other institutes (except jadavpur university) too!
In case you are interested in Mechanical Engineering and you have HS then there are some chances of you getting admission in Jadavpur University In subsequent rounds...
