AnkiT KunwaR 22nd Feb, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

Although it is difficult to prediction based on marks, because marks varies every year, depending on the difficulty level of the paper of the year.But at 65 marks in wbjee, you have absolutely no chance of getting a seat in Jadhavpur University.
At Least a score near 120 will help you fetch less popular branches.

I hope this helps.
