how many marks should i score in wbjee to be eligible for any government college if i am a student of any other state

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 14th Nov, 2019

First of all if you are an outside state(other than west bengal) students then you are not eligible for admissions in government colleges then fall under wbjee.Only west bengal students can secure admission in government colleges.But you will have chance to get admission in one if the best colleges in India and that's Jadhavpur university but for that there is a cutthroat competition as you will have to get a rank under 500 to get admission in JU.

Good Luck
