Is there any possible way for late submission of registration form for WBJEE?

Shareef 1st Dec, 2019

WBJEE last date for application ended on November 13th, 2019 and no extension has been announced until now. Now, it is too late already and there will not be any reopening of registration for WBJEE. So you cannot apply for WBJEE now because there in facility of submission of application form with late fees payment. But you can also try writing JEE. If you missed applying for January session, atleast apply for April session. If you wait for WBJEE, you will have to wait for another year and waste an academic year. But if you write JEE in April, you will not lose out on an year.

How to good physics math for wbjee.

sarthak goel 28th Nov, 2019

Hello Souvik,

WBJEE is comparitively easier than JEE main, therefore if you are able to solve JEE main Physics and Mathematics questions, then no need of worrying.

Both of these subject are conceptual, and the more you practise, the more shortcuts you discover. Try solving solved question first, and build your concept.

Whereas if you want to improove, I suggest you to go through the standard books such as H.C Verma, I.E. Irodov, D.C Pandey, and NCERT. For WBJEE, NCERT and H.C. Verma would be enough. Apart from this you may also consider the past year papers.

For mathematics, the more you practise, the less it is. Therefore, I would suggest you to go through as many books as time permits, for Maths. Consider, RD Sharma, NCERT, your school Text Book, Mathematics by R.S. Aggarwal, and of course previous year papers of WBJEE.

In case you fall short of material, go for some good coaching institute material, or solve JEE problems.

Hope this Helps
